Never say you can’t wear something because you think it won’t look good on you. How can you come to such a conclusion without giving it a try first? Style is about discovering what you like and what you don’t, what works for you and what doesn’t. It’s creative, intuitive and hard work. Nonetheless, if you keep an open mind and remain curious about yourself, you can create your own.
When shopping I give all clothes an equal opportunity to impress me. I don’t pay attention to gender, what’s trendy or what’s appropriate for my age, instead I look for pieces that speak to me. If I find it compelling, I will consider it. I think people get so caught up in what others/society may think without listening to their inner voice. Quite frankly, you have to zone everyone else out, follow intuition, unleash your inner Rihanna and dress for yourself.
What inspires me you ask?
Typically, I answer with my mother, but I think inspiration is everywhere. As Mrs. Apfel would say, “Sometimes you step on a bug and you get inspired.” and her words couldn’t be more truer.
