29, Stylist/Makeup Artist at A Valeria Boss Salon
What three words define your personal style?
Modern, classy, eclectic
Finish this sentence: “I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing...”
...a scrunchie in my hair even if they may be coming back!
What’s the best bargain you’ve ever found?
My favorite faux fur from my grandpa’s thrift store.
What is your favorite fashion trend right now?
The softer organic, boho feel and look. It’s simple, it’s sexy, and I feel like anyone can make it their own.
How long does it take you to get ready to do out or go to work?
Being in the industry that I am in I am a firm believer of recycling your hair from the day before, so with that being said I can usually get ready in about 45 minutes. Of course I have my moments where I can’t decide what to wear or how it looks so sometimes it could take longer!
Where do you find fashion inspiration?
Everywhere! Magazines, Social Media, Nature, my co-workers and my clients!
Who are your fashion role models?
I love so many different looks and styles, I feel like I am all over the board when it comes to fashion role models. I would have to say if I had to narrow it down between a few it would have to be Brigitte Bardot, Jessica Alba and Kim Kardashian. I love how Bardot had so many looks from sexy to simple and I love some of the trends coming back that are a little ‘70s-inspired! Jessica Alba I feel like is the cute girl next store and simple but can also pull off high fashion but is never to overdone, always put together and classic. I feel like my style is probably closer to hers on most days. Then of course Kim K! I admire her love for high fashion and trying new bold looks! Being in the beauty industry I feel like I get a lot of hair, makeup and wardrobe inspiration from these three, and love how they are all so different.
What’s your signature piece?
My faux leather jacket! I can dress it up or down and wear it with almost anything!
If you could wear one brand or designer for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
If I could wear one brand for the rest of my life it would be Free People for sure! To me it is sexy, simple, carefree, girl next door and has a lot of that boho feel to it, yet I could dress it up as well. I feel like you could create so many different looks within that line depending on who I wanted to be that day or dress how my mood is!
What are your favorite places to shop that are in 417-land?
Modern Society, Staxx, Forever21
What are your favorite places to shop that are not in 417-land?
Urban Outfitters and H&M
What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a must-have piece of clothing?
The most I have ever spent on a piece of clothing would have been my wedding dress! Besides that probably $160 on jeans! I am guilty of being a bit of a bargain hunter.
What do you think is the worst fashion faux pas?
Things that are too tight in all the wrong places!
Do you shop at thrift stores? If so, what do you look for?
My grandpa actually owns a thrift store, so yes I love looking around and seeing what I can find. I love finding something unique that I can layer or add a cool accessory to or a long dress or skirt that I can take up to look more up-to-date but that has a cool vintage
