We all know that I could talk about fashion from the time I wake up to the time my head hits the pillow and then dream about it while I sleep. It's an added bonus when I'm surrounded by fashionable friends who share my great love. So, when our friend, Anhee, rolled into town last weekend for the CJ FUENTES WEDDING looking like a million bucks, I didn't hesitate to ask her to be the feature for my next STYLE PROFILE.
Her weekend wedding style was definitely not a disappointment and neither were her answers to my long list of fashion & beauty related questions. I felt as if I was looking in the mirror as we talked about our likes & dislikes (mostly likes). There was the same spark of excitement and pure joy for words like "designer", "jeans", "vintage", and "tote". So simple, yet awesome in every possible way. Here's a "look see" glimpse of what we discussed:
Describe your style in 3 words.
Sophisticated, Boho, & Chic .
Pick your poison: vintage, street style, designer, or DIY homemade?
I like to mix it up. A little designer, a little street style, a little vintage. My style goes from Target to Chanel, baby.
What are the 5 items in your closet that you wear the most & that you couldn't live without?
My Alice + Olivia Pumps, my favorite pair of Joes Jeans, my Club Monaco Slacks (work staple), my Karen Millen Trenchcoat, & my Chanel Purse.
ANHEE'S REHEARSAL DINNER LOOK: BCBG Generation Black Column Maxi Dress with Side Slit, Forever 21 Black Knee-High Studded Gladiator Sandals
Any favorite movie costumes?
Yes!!! My favorites have to be GREAT GATSBY, MARIE ANTOINETTE, & ALMOST FAMOUS.
(Side note: Thank God she answered this question. She was the first, and I was beginning to think that I was the only movie nerd who actually paid attention to the costuming.)
Favorite fashion era?
The 20's! I love the beading, the opulence, and the head gear & head pieces.
ANHEE'S WEDDING LOOK: Coral Chiffon Pleated BCBG Dress with Flutter Sleeves, Strappy Blush Embellished Aldo Sandals
Who do you like to shop with & what are your favorite spots?
Generally by myself, with my mom, or with a good, close friend. It's serious business! ANTHROPOLOGIE, MADEWELL, & CLUB MONACO are my favorite stores and NASTY GAL when I shop on-line.
Any amazing fashion deals?
I've scored some of my best deals at Target with a lot of their designer collaboration lines.
What are some of your current fashion obsessions?
Denim jeans are always a staple in my wardrobe, but I've been wearing a lot of crop tops, oxfords, & jumpsuits lately. I'm kind of on board with the overall trend, too.
I love that Anhee's looks for the wedding weekend were effortless, ethereal, & unaffected. She kept her pairings simple with minimal accessories, but still made a huge statement at each event. Her style is a true reflection of her fashion philosophy: 1) Don't be too matchy, matchy. 2) Less is more. & 3) If it's not fun, it's not worth it. It's not that serious. A fashionista in every sense of the word, this statuesque stunner is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside, and it's why we all love Anhee.---Tatum
