2. Did you grow up loving fashion or cosmetics?
Yes, here is the story It comes from long time ago - and yet perhaps it wasn't such a very long time ago - there lived me, a little always smiling girl and...The stylish sisters, my grandmother and her four sisters. Five fabulous young ladies who knew how to stay chic all the time. And even at the age of 80 my grandmother would not go out without matching her colours and wearing a hat. Old fashioned? Too pretentious? Noo, just utterly STYLISH!
In the era of blue jeans and t-shirts (nothing against it, actually if worn in the right occasion and with the right accessories, could be really sexy), it is not a bad thing to look back and learn something from that old school. I did learn a lot from those meticulous ladies and saw my grandmother every day sewing perfect blouses, dresses, jackets and more for her clients. I saw her attention to details and my mothers' attention to details, matching colours and styles, being glamorous.
Not to mention my own older sister! Every time I see her, I admire her innate taste and how fast she is in figuring out the perfect clothes and accessories fusion. So CREATIVE! And here comes me, after a lifetime of style lessons, I started what has been in my blood, in my thoughts and in my dreams, helping other ladies learn the secrets of Style and Colour and give homage to The Stylish Sisters!
NO such a thing. Love them all!!! But the knowledge about what colours are more suitable for me made me avoid some. Must have colours in my wardrobe are all the earthy colours such as chocolate brown, mahogany, rust, coral, terracotta and a lot of green. Did I mention navy? Warm everywhere!
4. How would you describe your own personal style?
There is a bit of DRAMA in every outfit I wear. Love the wow effect! An oversized colourful stones dragon brooch on the top of a white panama hat; embroidered silk robe over swimwear, jean sneakers with a colourful knee length a line skirt, denim and tank top with a long turquoise or pearl necklace. These are just a few examples of how I play the game. There is also a natural part of my style, which never sacrifices comfort. I have two little boys. I drive and work, constantly running out of time. Even so I still enjoy my silver Manolo Blahnik heels while on vacation or when I am stepping out of the cab and stepping in the restaurant.
Fashion fades, style is eternal! Who said that? Right, Coco Chanel! Mademoiselle is my celebrity style icon. How much wisdom and creativity in this woman! Simply admirable! I love to wear a long Chanel pearl necklace mixed and matched with a casual outfit. I adore wearing a little black dress and I never feel over or underdressed with it. I actually love Rihanna too. She represents my dramatic style part.
6. How do you keep up with the trends?
I love knowing what is trendy, but I do not make a big deal about the trends when it comes to updating my wardrobe. I buy when I really love something. Of course it happens that I buy the latest trend, but just because it is TOTALLY ME. For example the flares this year were a big trend so I bought a pair of new black flares because I love this kind of cut. Boyish style is also trendy but I don’t want to dress like a man from head to toe.
I enjoyed every single minute and every single tip about my dream job. More than everything else I enjoyed spending time with Eve and checking her stylish outfits every day. She is one of the loveliest women I have ever met.
8. Where are your favourite places to shop?
ITALY! ITALY! ITALY! When the desire to go shopping is urging and Italy is not around the corner I go to Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers, Reiss, Club Monaco and I am a BIG FAN of Accessorize. Why? I love their inexpensive, fun jewelry and handbags. I already own a collection of colourful earrings from them.
Back in 1994 I used to have a Dalmatian female dog. I got so inspired by her spotted coat that every time I walked her I wore a little spotted t-shirt, same as hers as well as a metal collar. I bet you would love to see a picture of that outfit. NEVER!
10. Do you have any fashionable words of wisdom to share?
