Comfort and Style combined. My style is outgoing and comfortable and unpredictable. I like to make sure i'm confident with what I'm wearing, and by being comfortable it helps me be more confident! There are some days i'll be extra conservative, and other days when I can just whip out the most contrasting colors of the spectrum!
Shopping turf.
Forever 21, a few local stores, Department stores (SM), and my favorite —Thrift shops!
Favorite fashion designer.
Balmain, Lanvin, McQueen
a Necklace or a belt! Necklaces serve as a really chic accent/accessory that can help add character the whole ensemble. I also love the way belts can expose your best assets!
Mood and weather dresser.
My style is inspired by the weather and my mood. Of course I'm also inspired by different fashion blogs and magazines to dress uniquely.
Style gods.
There are so many! I'm a huge fan of Angelica Lorenz, also known as the fashion blogger, "Mode Junkie" I love how she can look so chic effortlessly!
Own influence. My shop. Since I started the Second Shop, I learned to become more outgoing and risk-taking with my style. Since the shop would indirectly reflect my style, I became more open to trying different looks.
Closet color palette.
Lots of gray and black, and neon colored tops
Never ever!
Those shirts that have vests, but only in the front of the shirt. I just find these really funny!
Basic three's.
1) a black tailored blazer 2) denim shorts 3) little black dress!!!
Trend rebirth.
poodle skirts, but shorter!
Vintage owns.
I have this lovely black mesh embroidered vest, this golden/yellow crochet tunic and this beautiful detailed blazer. They're all probably more than 20 years old.
