How you describe your style?

If I have to describe my style with words, I would say “Casual – Free.” Usually I wear casual and I love to have the freedom to mix pieces in a way that I like the look and feel comfortable. I don’t follow any trends, for example I love skinny jeans but I never wear them, it makes me feel very uncomfortable.

How does your work influences in your style?

I work painting on canvas, creating different things and having new ideas all the time. For sure it has lots of influence on my style. It’s funny because many times I imagine a look and I just can’t find the pieces at any store.

What else influences your style?

I don’t follow fashion trends…. rarely I look fashion magazines, and I would never ever buy a shoe or something just because I saw some top model or a famous person wearing it. But, as an ordinary woman, I love to go shopping and explore the stores, of course I have my favorite ones, like Diesel, Lucky Brand, Fossil, Puma, Juicy Couture, I love independent designers, but if I find something that I really love, I don’t care about the brand or the store. It can happen even at the grocery store.

What is the best compliment you had receive from your friends about your style?

Usually the first thing people tell me is about my accessories (I love bracelets, hats, watches and that kind of stuff). Some of my friends say that my style is hippie, others say modern, contemporary fashion, bohemian, they just like me the way I am, and I love them for it.
