Favorite designers and stores?
I love BCBG Max Azria, Alexander McQueen and Chanel. However, I can’t afford those so I’ll find cute, trendy pieces at H&M, Forever 21 and smaller boutiques and bargain stores such as Kohl’s and Nordstrom Rack.
What’s your general fashion inspiration? How would you define your style?
My style is simple and feminine, I love to add a bold or edgy accessory—jewelry, belt or shoes—to spice it up. I take inspiration from celeb style outfits and fashion magazines—I’ll find outfits that I like and pieces to make them my own. Also, confidence and a smile are your best accessories—you can rock any outfit with those!
What was the inspiration behind this particular outfit?
I loved the lace detail of this top—it fits my feminine style. The shoes make it fun and different and the bracelets ($14, available here) give it more color.
What’s your favorite thing about the mark. internship so far?
My favorite thing is the experience as a whole by living and working in NYC. I’ve met so many new people, made new friends and heard some great stories from role models. It is definitely a life-changing experience and makes me want to take charge of my life and career.
Favorite mark. product to take on a desert island?
This is so hard, I’m such a product junkie, but I would have to have the new Do The Right Thing Smoothing Body Lotion SPF 15 from the Fair Trade collection*—moisturizing for my dry skin and SPF to protect!
What are your fashion and beauty summer must-haves?
For fashion, summer dresses in splashy, bold colors, or soft floral patterns and a cute pair of sandals. For beauty, minimal is best in the heat: moisturizer with SPF or tinted moisturizer and bronzer. At night, bump up your look with a classic cat eye using (waterproof) liquid liner and a sexy pout using a lip stain.
And finally, the best thing about being in NYC for the summer? What’s the number 1 thing to do?
Eat—there is so much delicious food, its ridiculous! Also- get out and explore, you find so much by just walking around through different neighborhoods.
