2) How would you describe your personal style?
That's not easy to answer! I love preppy style...so in winter I love wearing a classic shirt with a tie and a vest, but in summer it gets so hot that I try to be fashionable with very simple pieces, I love buying nice t-shirts that can be trendy by themselves. I think my style is quite classic anyhow.
3) Trends you are loving?
I don't feel like I follow trends that much. But lately I'm trying to incorporate more colors in my looks, I didn't try color blocking, but new bright colors have been added also on the latest male collections, so I think I may following the trend!
4) Trends you dislike?
Nothing comes up to my mind. I think trends are ok, but anyhow you need to think if any trend could suit your style, body shape and so on. I don't see nothing bad in following a trend, but usually I'm not that kind of person, considering I don't feel that young anymore, and because of my work, I tend to compromise my sense of style!
5) How do you shop? On a budget? Online? High end stores? Thrifting?
I have to admit I shop too much!! I'm desperate! I'm not a shopaholic, but I could become one! I love shopping. I love shopping online, I usually visit sites like ASOS, Topman to see if there's something I'd love to have...and I always find! lol I live in the city centre, so almost everyday, when I get back from work, I check everyone's fave shops like ZARA, H&M, Sisley...and if there's something I like, I end up buying it! I usually shop on Ebay too, mostly my Vivienne Westwood staff! lol I like thrifting too, and vintage too, but I have to admit that I'm quite picky so I don't usually buy that much there, it really depens by the shop choice. Anyhow, I'm planning on shopping a bit less...
6) Rules you always follow when putting together an outfit?
I'd say I always try to balance my looks. It sure depends by the occasion I dress for. If I dress for work I try to stay as simple and classic as possible. But even if I dress up, I always try not to overdress. I like to keep my outfit clean and making it a bit special adding some accessories like pins/brooches, rings, bracelets... Now that I'm working a little more with colors, I guess I follow the rules my mother told me since I was a child lol I really try to balance all the colors in my outift, that may be a bit boring...but I can't help doing that. Like, my mother told me, black or blue cannot go together, same goes for blue and green. I know, it may sounds stupid or old-fashioned, but I usually follow those simple rules! lol
7) Music you're currently listening to?
I'm quite open. I used to be more strict when I was younger, but now I really listening to anything I like. Lately I've been listening to Gemma Hayes, Coeur de Pirate, The Kills, Lisa Hannigan...
8) Favorite Brands/ Stores?
I'd say Vivienne Westwood, if you could consider it a brand! lol Then I usually buy in shops like H&M and Zara, like everyone else!
9) What factors do you consider when getting dressed? Mood/ the occasion/ weather?
I must say the mood doesn't influence my way of dressing, I'm always more concetrated on the way I look, I guess. That's not nice to say maybe, but it's the way it is. Yeah, surely weather influences me. When I work I usually plan my outfit the night earlier lol so it's bad when I wake up and it's raining and I didn't plan it! lol And of course I consider the occasion, as I said earlier. Honestly I try to appear always at my best, sometimes maybe I decide to be just a little more comfortable than others!
10) Is there some other detail you'd like to share with the readers about your style? Something you like to let them know?
I just thank you for featuring me and everyone else who read those answers! I'm always open to suggestions about my style, so if you want, drop by and give me your personal opinion!
