The outfit you wear most often (be honest!):
Since it's fall, faux leather jackets, a fitted top, pantyhose, black high waist skirt, and of course my go to shoes: Dr. Martens.
Tell us the earliest memory you have of being interested in fashion.
My earliest memory being interested in fashion was when I was 8 years old I would always put on my moms pantyhose and her dresses. I loved the way pantyhose felt. I still wear them as much as I can.
How would you describe your style?
I would describe my style as structured grunge, edgy street wear. I love the idea of wearing an outfit that looks stylish, but is comfortable and great for someone that is always on the go. I have a busy lifestyle and I'm always running around. It's easier for me to have a look that I'm not always trying to adjust.
What’s the inspiration/motivation for your blog?
The inspiration comes from the past, 80's-90's, but it also comes from what my lifestyle is, since I am always on the go, and live a city lifestyle, I like to dress comfortably stylish. I first started the blog to show how I styled my Jeffrey Campbells but now it is a blog to promote clothes and show how I style clothes in a way people wouldn't think of putting two and two together. I want to encourage girls to step out of their comfort zone and be unique, and that you don't need a lot of money to put the perfect outfit together. A lot of celebrity styles from the 90's have also inspired me, such as, Drew Barrymore, Courtney Love, and Gwen Stefani.
What are some of your favorite labels?
UNIF, Dr. Martens, Jeffrey Campbell, a lot of non labeled items from thrift stores.
How did you style your Jewel Toned?
I paired my Jewel Toned nylon yoga/biker shorts with a floral dress, faux leather jacket, and Dr. Martens.
