Name: Patricia Prieto
Anything goes chick. I'm pretty much adventurous when it comes to my style. Besides, what's life without an adventure? Like one day I can be real girly, but the next I can be all rocker chic. I don't really just stick to one kind of look, being unique is the way to go nowadaysâ€”just like my style. I simply dress the way I do, no explanations needed, which is why I tend to be adventurous when it comes to making my fashionesque choices (unless my mood or the weather doesn't allow me to do so).
Shopping haven. I can seriously shop anywhere. I always seem to find something at a store! But I usually hit up malls, especially Rockwell. When I'm there, I go to Topshop, Topman, Zara, Collezione C2, the Archeology area (which has great stores too), and Mango. Other shops I love going to are American Apparel, Urban Outfitters, H&M, and Forever 21. I can swear by those shops! They always have awesome stuff on hand!
Fave fashion designer. Just naming one designer is a toughie, but if I were to give you my top five designers, they'd have to be Jeremy Scott, Karl Lagerfeld, Betsey Johnson, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander Wang (in no specific order). Need I say more? But as for local designers, I love Rhett Eala's designs. They're so unique (which is why I had him design my prom dress)!
Never leave the house without... Accessories. Accessories and even MORE accessories!
Inspired. I go to fashion blogs such as lookbook.nu and chictopia.com, wherein I scan through and even add looks of my own! Aside from blogs, I read A LOT of magazines, from Nylon, V, Vogue and i-D. Watching TV shows like Gossip Girl and 90210. These shows also inspire me cause certain characters really do dress up really well, like Jenny and Serena from Gossip Girl and Silver from 90210.
Style icon. I adore Cory Kennedy!! It's like being fashionable for her is so effortless. I also like Taylor Momsen, 'cause her style is very rocker-esque, which is what I'm totally into right now. And other celebrities like the Olsen twins, Katy Perry, Sienna Miller, Amanda Bynes, Zooey Deschanel, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton.
Closet's color palette. It's pretty much black and white for me. Though I do have colored stuff, but like bright colors (not quite neon, but not like dull colors) just to add a little kick to my outfit.
Never seen in... Leggings/tights paired with a short top (like if it falls above the hips). It's just that I always knew that when one wears leggings/tights your top's gotta be below the hips.
Stylish three. A plain white v-neck, an awesome pair of skinnies, and a little black dress.
Fashion comeback. I know it's sort of coming back, but I love the '80s. It's the perfect mix of black, white, and a splash of color. And I know that denim, studs, and cute skirts were in then! I love how they used to layer, like an off-shoulder top with a tank under, with shorts, a hip belt and dope high cut sneakers! There's something about that era that's just so fun, youthful and carefree!
Vintage finds. I remember raiding my grandmother's closet when she decided to move to the US. I was able to get Chanel, Christian Dior and Roberta Di Camerino bags, Christian Dior and Charles Jourdan pumps, just to name a few. And cool skirts and padded blazers. Of course some needed to be altered, which I did, so now it has a little me in them as well. As for my mom, she gave me her old Christian Louboutin heels and Gucci and Chanel bags, which I can't get enough of!
