Three reasons that you’re awesome:
LOL! Ummm, I’m a good friend, I have a great sense of humor, and I search for the goodness and value in everyone I meet.
What are you wearing right now, as you type this?
James Perse scoop neck tee and some really old school men’s long underwear. It’s actually pretty chic 🙂
What is the last item of clothing you bought?
I just bought stuff items from Asos.com actually! A tattered pair of jeans a few sizes too big because I want roomier feel and look and three oversize deep v-neck tees. I live in beautifully made tees!!
What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment?
Splurge: That’s always so hard to say. Since my closet is full of only things I adore, it’s hard to have a favorite – but the at the moment I am all about my sheer black floral jacket. It’s just so fresh.
I remember my mom bought me the cutest green mini skirt. I was in the 3rd grade or something and I just thought it was the most grown up thing I owned. I would put it on in my room and sit and drink tea with my Teddy Ruxpin. I was the height of elegance.
I went through a thrifting phase a couple years ago. Thrifting usually isn’t my thing as I love ultra modern minimalist fashion, but I did manage to hold on to some keepers. One being a white and black very Chanel-esque long fitted dress coat with gold buttons and a built in wrap at the neck. Very regal and East African looking.
Could you tell us your top three style tricks/DIYs?
1. Always have your clothes fitted! A shortening here and a dart or two there can make a huge difference to how you fit your clothes.
2. Balance. If I show my legs, I cover my top. If my top is revealing, I cover my legs.
3. If you’re going to splurge, do it on coats, bags and shoes. That’s all you need to look like a million bucks. The rest can be dirt cheap!
Thanks so much for sharing, Natalie!
