417 Magazine: What three words define your personal style?
Connie Gold: Classic, comfortable and enjoyable. I love classic styles, as they are good to have in the closet year after year. Many of my pieces I can layer, dress-up or wear casual. I love to be comfortable. I am constantly on the move.
417: Where do you find inspiration for your closet?
C.G.: I am extremely tall so I have to shop at places that carry clothes that fit me, which can be a challenge. There are only a few places that I shop. They know me, my style and my sizes, and they are great about notifying me of pieces they know I will want to see.
417: What one item is on your wish list for this year?
C.G.: It will always remain on my wish list, as I know there are many other things I need much worse. I want a Rolex watch. I absolutely do not need one, but wish I had one.
417: What is your favorite fashion trend right now?
C.G.: I love basic clothing that I can blend with higher fashion designs to make an outfit. Adding in pops of color, which I am working on adding to my closet. My wardrobe [currently] consists of a lot of black, gray and white.
417: Who are your fashion role models?
C.G.: I honestly do not have a fashion role model that I watch. I love looking at all of the different styles and models, but I do not have any specifics. I know what brands of clothing I like and what fits me well.
