I am a “chill creative with urban influence”. The California coastal town I live in influences my laid-back style, but the creative and funky side of me loves mixing patterns and colors.
Black and white striped shirt, comfortable yet fashionable sneakers, cognac wedges, a pair of denim that fits like a glove, and an accessory that showcases the sparkle within.
Necklaces for layering, hoop earrings, statement earrings, a classic watch, a mix of metals.
I love and appreciate vintage. My nana had a lot of vintage jewelry as far back as the early 1900s and I loved watching how she accessorized her outfits with beautiful jewels. I was lucky to inherit some of those pieces and appreciate the story behind them and the powerful women who wore them before me.
I am a big fan of juxtaposing styles. It creates interest and uniqueness to an outfit. So if I am wearing vintage, I like to pair it with something unexpected like a trend of the current season or really allow it to be the statement piece with a body conscious maxi dress or t-shirt and jeans.
I don’t but only because I believe in having a closet that is diversified so I don’t put any emphasis on one specific area.
Diamonds 110%. I love me some sparkle.
I appreciate stylish simplicity, although I am not afraid to wear pieces that make a big statement. In those situations, I keep everything else simple. It’s all about balance.
That’s tough. A little of both.
Flats for me. I appreciate and adore heels, but my ankles won’t let me wear them.
There is something about a brick and mortar shopping experience that just can’t be replicated online. I love walking into a small boutique and sharing in the love for fashion with someone else. The way clothing is merchandise, the artistic looks on the mannequins… those are all things that are lost online. I also think it takes a much more trained eye to successfully shop online. What I do appreciate about online shopping is the amount of inventory to choose from. With the right amount of time, I can almost always find the perfect piece for a client because there is a huge selection to choose from.
I didn’t personally make the purchase, but my wedding ring is my most sentimental piece. It is classic yet has an art deco influence so it sets it apart from other wedding rings of this era. The main diamond is the same shape as my mother’s wedding ring (marquis) so there is an element of passing down the tradition of a strong and fruitful marriage.
Since I was a little girl, I’ve been fascinated with Audrey Hepburn’s style. It was so unique for her time yet turned into this classic persona that is relevant today. I also really appreciate how Rachel Zoe turns vintage items in a modern, current look.
Personal style is all about reflecting your personal brand. I like to start the day thinking, “what do I want to tell the world about myself today?” and pick my outfit around that. A lot of times, I feel like women want hard and fast fashion rules to follow but true personal style isn’t about that. It’s about being comfortable in your skin, and wearing things that accurately portray who you are and what you want the world to know about you.
Thanks for stopping by! And as always, count on us for all of your styling needs!
