For this installment of Closets & Cocktails, A and I are thrilled to have Lauren from everyday to runway. We love her savvy style and adorable answers! We only hope her mom isn't reading this! (Or maybe is, depending on your point of view... imagine Closets & Cocktails facilitating Lauren getting her dream hand-me-down! That'd be pretty marvy... ) One thing I will say is that I'm with you, Lauren; I believe in the life-changing power of a good latte! So, without further adieu, a few insights into Lauren's fashion philosophies and closet confessions...
(p.s. can we talk about her marvy blue nails?!)
What is your style motto? Keep it classic. Fresh, feminine, but balanced.
If you could change one thing about your closet, what would it be? I'd like it to be bigger! Adequate closet space is a rarity in the city , so I supplement space by storing seasonal items, and having a bureau, and an armoire too!
Who's style, past or present, do you most admire? Truly, I most admire my mom's style. She started working in retail in high school for money to buy her own sewing machine and fabric. She made all her own clothes, even a gorgeous emerald green prom dress. She has a classic, tailored style that mixes high, low and vintage... I have my eye on a few pieces of hers to permanently "borrow".
What is your most treasured possession in your closet?
