This is the lovely Marissa of Shades of Monet blog. I first came across her photo stream on Flickr and quickly loved her personal style! She is such a sweet heart with her encouraging comments and I just realized she lives in PA too, hopefully we can schedule a meet-up in the near future <3 Enjoy reading her interview friends!
Marisa Noelle - Drums, Pennsylvania
1. How do you describe your personal style?
Vintage and girly with plenty of color and a nice helping of whimsy on the side.
2. Where do you find/pull inspiration from?
I pull inspiration from everything around me - from walking through a fabric store seeing different textiles and patterns together to whatever pops up on my Pinterest page to watching an old movie. The possibilities are endless.
3. Name one fashion accessory you can't live without?
Definitely hair accessories! I'm such a sucker for cute hats, floral crowns, and big bows. My mom used to make bows and crowns for a local children's boutique when I was little, so she always had me decked out with some accessory on my head. I guess the habit just kind of stuck.
4. I never break this fashion rule........
Rules were meant to be broken I do believe! Though I don't think you'll catch me walking out of the house in daisy dukes with high heels anytime soon:)
5. Your next must have purchase?
Right now I am totally eating up the whole pastel craze going on at the moment. I've been hunting thrift stores left and right for the perfect pastel boyfriend blazer....so that would be my next must have purchase.
6. Most underrated item in women's wear?
Legwear most definitely. Whether it be cute little anklets in the summer or patterned tights in the winter, interesting and perhaps even quirky legwear always takes an ok outfit and makes it something fun and inspiring.
7. For all the fashionistas, provide one piece of invaluable fashion advice.
Experiment with different' color palettes - even ones you would never think go together. Just by mixing unexpected colors from pieces in your closet (things you thought may not work), you will be able to double even triple your wardrobe and be pleasantly surprised with the outfits you come up with.
