When RedEnvelope contacted me about joining their #RedStyle campaign, I was quick to jump. Not only is RedEnvelope a company I’ve used for years for great gift ideas but the campaign is all about embracing your personal style. I think what’s so fun about blogging and fashion is that we get to share with everyone our mood, inspirations, and style just by what we decide to put on that day. I describe my personal style as classic with a twist. I tend to gravitate toward classic shapes but also love fun pops of color and loud prints. I also like accessories and such that have a little humor to it, like my Kate Spade donut bag or the “Shopping is My Cardio” Wildfox sweater. I included my mary jane Manolo Blahniks because they are the very first designer thing I ever purchased. They’re classic is shape but the twist is the bright and shinny patent leather. A perfect epitome of my style! As far as jewelry goes, I’m usually getting ready in a rush so I like to be able to grab something like a giant Samantha Wills ring or a huge gold chain vintage necklace. A statement piece can really pull your look together!
Another aspect to my style is blending designer pieces with stuff I’ve found at the Goodwill or vintage shops. That’s truly when I feel most me. The gorgeous gold and black lace skirt and the beat up old Coach crossbody bag are probably some of my most favorite things in my closet! I have no problems with second hand clothing and sometimes it’s amazing what you’ll find! It’s just what you didn’t know you always wanted!
How do you describe your personal style?
