How would you describe your style?
I don’t particularly have one specific style, I am not into trends as I feel your style should be timeless. I love elegance as I believe is timeless.
Which one item from your wardrobe couldn’t you live without?
Oh that’s an easy one, the item that I can’t live without is my mini Chanel purse. I believe every woman should have one in their closet.
What are your current wardrobe staples?
My current wardrobe staples are my golden goose high tops, balmain blazer, James Perse white scoop neck t shirt, my frame denim skinny jeans and my Gucci sunnies.
Who inspires your style the most? (celebrity, family member, etc.)
I would say Victoria Beckham, as she is an inspiration to me. She embodies elegance, class and timeless luxury. She is an iconic fashion designer.
If you had to live with only a capsule wardrobe containing five key pieces, what would they be, and why?
Blazer, T-shirt, jeans, chanel sneakers, chanel bag – I’m very comfortable.
Have you had any fashion disasters over the years?
I haven’t had anything drastic so thankfully no and I really pray that it never happens.
Where do you like to shop?
The list is endless, let’s start with Barney’s, Fred Segal, Chanel, vintage boutique stores and Nike- to name a few. I also love online shopping.
What is your favourite trend at the moment?
The biggest trend at the moment would be the beautiful spring color, Lavender-it’s such a refreshing color.
How has your style evolved since you started out in the Influencer world?
My style has evolved immensely. From being a trendy shopper to buying more traditional and timeless pieces.
What is the best piece of fashion advice you have ever been given?
The best piece of fashion advice I have ever been given would be to lead by example, and be the best version of yourself that you can possibly be. Be an original.
