You seem so inspired when you pick your outfits out and put them
together- what’s your inspiration personally?
Also, what’s your inspiration professionally?
My inspiration is so different on a daily basis. I usually have a running list in my head of different things I want to wear in the upcoming week. I may not know how I’m going to do it, but at least its a starting point. If I know I have a lot going on, I might even hang out outfits as a whole, but my mood is so different morning to morning.
As far as inspiration goes- 90% probably comes from style bloggers and magazines and the remaining 10% goes to girls I see on the street in NYC. I look for color combinations I like as well as different silhouettes that look good together. I am not concerned with being “trendy”, but we all gravitate towards things (in my case clothing) that is aesthetically appealing. Often times, those things are new to the market. But I really try to stick with what I love— natural waists, colorful legs, short skirts, skinny or super wide jeans, 80s plaids and so on.
In terms of my work place, I work as the Design Director, so I can pretty much be as out there as I want. I may tone things down or dress a little more corporate if I have a meeting with a big national client, but I like to keep things current. Working in the fashion industry makes it a bit more important to be put together. Even if I’m dressing like an Olsen twin, I want to look— well, like I meant it.
