What is the secret to great style?
I see cultivating great style as a three-part process:
1. Learning to love and accept your body, just as it is
2. Learning to dress your body in a way that aligns with your personal figure flattery priorities
3. Learning to dress your body in a way that expresses your creativity and tastes
What is the one thing you would spend a lot of money on?
Shoes. Always shoes.
What is the one thing you wouldn’t spend a lot of money on?
Tees. I ruin them in milliseconds.
What are your top tips for looking stylish when traveling?
Make sure to try on every single outfit you plan to wear BEFORE packing it. No surprises!
How do you balance new trends with a more timeless look?
I’m more likely to indulge on trendy accessories, which generally pair well with clean, classic clothing.
What is your current obsession?
Boots. I already own more pairs than I’d care to confess, but I am continually hunting for more!
Who inspires you?
My fellow bloggers. I am constantly amazed by their creativity, chic, and kindness.
What’s not worth the money?
A status handbag. If you’re going to plunk down a huge amount of money for a bag, do it on a classic, well-made one that you’ll carry for 10+ years.
What’s your secret to making yourself stand out?
Color. You’d be amazed how much of the world voluntarily chooses to clothe itself in black and gray.
The one piece of advice most women need but don’t get?
Don’t worry about dressing to look thin, tall, and young. Worry about dressing to look radiant, confident, and perfectly yourself.
How would you describe your personal style?
Arty eclectic with a broad streak of retro influence.
Thanks Sal! Great insights that we can all gain something from.
