SCROLL

What are your two favorite brands from our STYLEFAV website?

For sure Levi’s and Noisy May ! I am absolutely obsessed with Levi’s. They are pretty much the only denim I’ve ever worn and the only jeans that I buy. With Noisy May, I love their simple tees and sweatshirts.

What is your opinion on luxury fashion?

I think luxury fashion can be classic and timeless. Purchasing a luxury fashion piece is something that can be a forever quality item in your closet. Oftentimes, the styles are eye-catching and stand out.

What is the most expensive clothing item you’ve bought, and do you still have it?

The most expensive clothing piece I’ve bought is a Christian Dior blazer. I do still have it and it is definitely something I’ll always keep since it will never go out of style!

What are the last three items you bought?

The last three things that I’ve bought are a pair of vintage Levi’s 550 jeans, a vintage Fendi purse, and a purple ruched top. I generally like to add staple pieces to my wardrobe and then sometimes add a pop of colour to my closet, especially when spring and summer hit.

How would you describe your personal style?

I would say my personal style is sleek and sometimes edgy. My style is very much mood generated and depends on current trends. I always keep up with street style looks and the classic looks that keep on giving.

What message do you think your personal style sends?

I would say for the most part, my personal style sends cool girly and effortless messages! Sometimes edgy since I have dark hair and like to pair dark pieces for a look. And other times it comes across as natural since I wear minimal makeup and like to wear tees with light wash levi’s.

What is one fashion trend that has become a staple in your personal style?

Square toed shoes are absolutely a trend that has become a staple in my personal style. Since 2018, I’ve purchased square toed sandals and boots whenever I get the chance. I think they are super flattering and add a classy look and feel to your outfit.

If you could go back in time and tell your past self DON’T WEAR THAT! Describe which outfit that would be.

I used to wear a red Adidas windbreaker all the time. It was definitely not stylish the way that I wore it, but everyone still remembers that windbreaker, which means it was a faux pas for sure.

Who are your style icons?

I’ve loved Ralph Lauren for a long time. This brand is one of my style icons since I love the earthy tones and classic looks. I am also a huge fan of Linda Evangelista. I think she has an extremely elegant look and I love her fashion inspiration from the 90’s.

Do you prefer digital or print fashion publications?

I used to order print publications, but now I prefer digital since I am all in for sustainability and I don’t like having to throw out magazines. I also find digital much easier to keep up with and search whatever trends you’re looking for.

What’s the best style advice you’ve ever received?

The best advice I’ve ever received is to buy timeless pieces that you can keep forever. I would say this is the best advice I’ve received since it has saved me a lot of money in the long run. Rather than purchasing a huge quantity of cheap clothing which gets turned over constantly, I try my best to purchase a few pieces that are wardrobe staples and I can keep in my closet forever.
