It’s Day 10 of our 12 Days of Christmas trunk show, only 2 days left to see all 12 pieces! Say hello to our host, LeAura of Ever So Popular who can’t live without the internet, but who actually can?
B: Describe your personal style
“Chic, colorful, fun, sexy, comfortable (you have to be able to move).”
B: Who are your favorite designers?
“I love mixing designers and brands. I am fortunate enough to spend time backstage and front row during fashion week. I adore Betsey Johnson, her aesthetic is fun and timeless so her designs speak to every girl and woman that I know. Her energy is inspiring, she does a cartwheel and drops into a full split at the end of her show!”
B: Where are your favorite places to shop?
“I love shopping at h&m, Zara, Forever 21 they have every single trend under 1 roof. Then I mix with pieces from DVF, Rachel Roy, Alice & Olivia, Helmut Lang, LAMB Vince, Theory to tell my own style story.”
B: Who are your style icons?
“My Mommy, she made a lot of her own clothes and now I wear some of them.
Gwen Stefani, music & fashion icon! Her look is funky, cool and chill at the same time.
Katharine Hepburn: A woman of substance and chic style.”
B: What are you 3 key wardrobe essentials?
“An LBD, great shoes and fabulous accessories!”
B: What can you never leave your house without?
“Phone, keys, wallet. Fine, more like iPhone and a tablet (a charger for at least one of them), keys (to everything), and my very large wallet, a makeup bag and a bottle of water.”
B: Do you have any stories about an amazing designer piece you found?
“I saw this amazing pair of open toe tan leather wedge boots at a boutique in Paris last year. I ended up not getting them and have regretted it since.”
B: Most recent trunk show? (Who were they? What did they sell?)
“Recently, I was modeling for Carmen Marc Valvo and Christian Cota and both designers have been doing amazing things with fur.”
B: Current least favorite trend // favorite trend
Pajama inspired looks. I have actually worn pajama tops out!
Earlier this year when I was in Dublin (and running low on clean clothes) I donned my leopard print pj top (and a cute skirt) to a pub.
Least Favorite: Faux glasses. As someone who started wearing glasses at age 2 I refuse to partake in this one.”
B: things you can’t live without.
“Love (family, friends and special people make the world go round)
Beauty products! So many creams, gels, lotions and potions I cant edit ‘em down
Books: Genre: Celebrity Autobiographies! These are my guilty pleasure…they are often better than I expect.
B: Any advice for those who want to start a blog/ fashion blog?
“The best advice I could give about starting a fashion blog is that blogging is another form of storytelling. To keep people interested in yours make sure its unique and have you have a point of view.”
