Style Crush

I always liked to observe people, to see what they wear and how they style things. Long before the internet, fashion blogs and Pinterest, I would just study the people around me, strangers or not. I read a quote somewhere that if you make sure to always keep your eyes open, then you have all the inspiration you need around you. And this is so true, especially when it comes to fashion and style. Most of the influences we pick up are from people around us. So I had this crazy though of focusing a post, every now and then, on someone stylish that can inspire us and give us a few pointers on their own personal style.

I chose to start with my cousin, Paula, that is by far one of the most fashionable people I know. We met during the holidays and we had a little Q&A for this post. She is so good at looking flawless day and night, and I can always count on her when I need advice on what to wear or where to find a good bargain. She is a very creative person and she designed Stylish Dreams header. Here is a glimpse of her personal style.

  1. How would you define your style? I have always loved fashion and ever since I was a kid I absolutely adored to dress up and customize my clothes. My wardrobe is defined by the classic cut and all black uniforms. My color palette is black and more black, sometimes paired with nude colors and golden accessories. I adore stiletto pumps, stiletto boots and of course stiletto sandals. I am not worried about what is in fashion or not, I trust my instinct and know that my style will get better with time.
  2. Where do you find inspiration? Nowadays one can find inspiration everywhere. I am quite an old fashion kind of gal and must say that my inspiration still comes from paper back fashion magazines and films. Over the last decade I have never missed an issue of Vogue or Elle. I do follow a few blogs such as  Advance Style Hora Confessions, The Green Style Blog, Kate loves me.
  3. Who is your favourite fashion icon? I have to say I don’t follow a particular fashion icon, however I have always been a big fan of Carine Roitfeld. Also lately I have been very impressed by Victoria Beckham. Her creations look really chic and confortable.
  4. Where do you normally shop? Like our beloved Carrie Bradshaw use to say : “Shopping is my cardio”. Living in London offers me amazing shopping opportunities. I shop from Harrods to Tkmaxx, I love looking for bargains on Buy my wardrobe and going to sample sales.
  5. Which is your favourite city to live in and why? My all time favourite city would be the fabulous New York because it gave me a feeling of freedom and lots of energy, because Sex and the City took place there, because Manhattan cocktail was invented there and so on. Nevertheless I am quite happy where I live now, the colourful London.
