Styled by Kaitlin | Roses & Rags

March 29, 2012

Hopefully you checked out Chrissy’s She Wishes She Was Wearing guest post last week – because her co-blogging counterpart from Roses & Rags, Kaitlin, is with us today!  Like Chrissy, Kaitlin has style for miles and we can never seem to get enough of her closet peeks and outfit posts… She looks just as awesome in a blazer and heels as she does in ripped boyfriend jeans and flats and it’s obvious that her style is all her own.  AND she wears a better arm party than any we’ve ever seen.  Just saying.  We love that both Roses & Rags…

Hopefully you checked out Chrissy’s She Wishes She Was Wearing guest post last week – because her co-blogging counterpart from Roses & Rags, Kaitlin, is with us today!  Like Chrissy, Kaitlin has style for miles and we can never seem to get enough of her closet peeks and outfit posts… She looks just as awesome in a blazer and heels as she does in ripped boyfriend jeans and flats and it’s obvious that her style is all her own.  AND she wears a better arm party than any we’ve ever seen.  Just saying.  We love that both Roses & Rags girls have created outfits that work with both a heel and a flat – it must be the Manhattan city living that has made them so practical but still ridiculously stylish 🙂  We hope you enjoy Katilin’s She Wishes She Was Wearing as much as we do – it has been such a treat having both of them on the blog!

 

 

QUESTIONS of STYLE:

.Describe your personal style in five words or less:  Bright, fresh, comfortable, smart.

.Who/What inspires your personal style, influencing what you’re drawn to and what you end up wearing?  Jennifer Aniston sums it up for me.  She is constantly seen wearing jeans and a leather jacket with a plain tee, and at night exudes sexy confidence wearing a cocktail dress and heels. Although she keeps the jewelry to a minimum (I tend to stack), she is the perfect example of my daytime casual to nighttime flirty. I am all about chic comfort and you can have that without being a hot mess! It’s all about maintaining comfort and style and she balances that perfectly. 

.What is an item you cannot live without or what are some of your wardrobe essentials?  I absolutely cannot live without a pair of skinny jeans. Rag & Bone or J Brand are probably my favorite denim designers, and find myself always in the jean section of the store. They are my go to problem solver and look perfect with a pair of killer heels and a smart blazer!

.What is your most recent purchase?  Stella McCartney Falabella Bag!!!

.Where have you found some of your most treasured style items?  Like Chrissy, I too favorite WINK NYC. It has amazing accessories and I often walk out with one of them. Intermix and Zara are on top of my list as well. Intermix always has something that catches my eye, whether it’s Brian Atwood Pumps or the perfect Tibi cocktail dress. Zara is my go to store for style with a great price. Perfect tweed blazers and maxi skirts for spring that won’t break the bank.

.What is your go-to jewelry routine?  Gold, gold, gold! If you open up my jewelry drawer, the majority of my pieces are plain gold, or gold plated with a pop of color. I wear a watch and ring everyday or else I feel naked. I am a firm believer in arm parties – the more the better! 

.What are some of your make-up must haves?  Bobbi Brown Eye Corrector works miracles. I use this every morning and it instantly wakes up my face. If you want to know about a bronzer then ask me, because I have probably tried every single one. I wanted the perfect glow, and I have finally found that with Hoola by Benefit. My secret weapon is Dior Lip Glow. One swipe and it gives your lips a natural flush. 

.If you could meet any designer who would it be and why?  Victoria Beckham. I feel like no one ever remembers that she is in fact a designer of her own line, but every time you see a picture of her she is photographed wearing her own pieces! All of her clothes are tailored perfectly to your body and are incredibly flirty and feminine. I think she designs exactly what she would wear and what she would look best in, staying true to her persona. For a night out on the town I would definitely slip into one of her bright numbers and a pair of YSL heels – you’re ready to go!

.What’s the best style advice you’ve ever given or received?  Diane von Furstenburg put it perfectly when she said, “The biggest mistake a woman can make is not to be herself in public or private.” If I’m not comfortable in what I’m wearing then there’s no use in forcing it. You want to exude confidence both in public and private and always stick to what you know best – yourself. 

 

Her outfit is the perfect combination of comfort and stand out style – how incredible are those jeans?! AND there are no words for how jealous we are of her most recent purchase… We hope you all head over to Roses & Rags to check out all the great content she and Chrissy continue to put out… How can you not be obsessed with their taste level and candid personalities after reading their guest posts?  We just heart them to bits!  Thank you again, Kaitlin!  xx
