I want to introduce you to my friend Christina from Christina Dely Photography. She was the featured photographer at the last creative connection LA and I had such fun chatting with her we continued our friendship via Twitter and Facebook. I am so excited to have her here today. And she is very fashionable, so very appropriate for fashion week! Take it away!
Let me preface this by saying, "I am in NO way a fashion expert. Not even close!" I am sure I make a zillion fashion faux pas that would make Coco Chanel turn over in her grave. Never the less, I adore fashion! And I only wish that I had the budget to clad myself in Gucci & Dior daily. Until then, I will make do with what I have & share a little bit of my personal style with you :)
While sometimes I wish I could be the next Gwen Stefani at the party, I know that is just not in my personality. If I had to sum up my personal style in a sentence, it would be... Jackie O with a twist! I gravitate towards classic lines, quality fabrics & colors that compliment my features. While this may not be every one's cup of tea (don't fall asleep on me just yet!).... If you do not have Donatella 's budget, you can still get away with using key pieces again & again for years to come!
Now this is not to say that my personal style is "plain". I pray that people do not think this of me (although if you see me on a sleep deprived day, feel free to judge!) I absolutely adore taking a timeless piece & pairing it with an edgy accessory! To me this brings a bit more of my personal taste to the ensemble & allows the entire outfit to fit in with current trends.
Case & Point I: Del Mar Race Track Ensemble
Obviously I would not wear this hat on an average day... but it was Del Mar! I matched this fairly simple pattern dress with an edgy cuff! Looooove cuffs!
Case & Point II: Everyday Ensemble
I hope this doesn't make you cringe, but I am obsessed with Hanes tank tops! I have been for years. They are so comfortable, form fitting, easy. Now pair this with cute jeans & you have a VERY plain outfit... But if you add a flashy/chunky (aka the best!) necklace, you are making more of a statement!
P.S. After reading all of Natalia's fabulous hair styling posts, I was ashamed to share my horrific "hair in a ponytail look"! So please overlook the headless poses ;)
Ok, I think I have rambled on long enough! Thank you for listening & thank you Natalia for being SO fabulous!!!
