Natalie…why is style important to you?
Style expresses what you’re feeling, what you life and who you are. It’s more important than fashion. It’s a symbol of freedom and artistic and personal expression!
Tell us about your upcoming fashion line…
Haha! It’s an exciting thought. I am not publicly announcing any details or dates yet but keep visiting my blog because all exciting announcements will be posted there for sure. 🙂
Who or what inspired your confidence, your drive, your ambition?
Goodness. Well firstly, I wouldn’t say I’m an ambitious person at all. I’ll say I’m very curious. And curiosity usually gets me into all sorts of things-like persistence, which people usually mistake me for drive. I wouldn’t say I have drive either…lol! And my confidence is usually just hope. The people that inspire my curiosity, persistence and hope are successful, independent business owners and people who have executed a large project or goal. That is incredibly inspiring to me!
How do you deal with negativity especially when it comes to making your dreams come true?
The only negativity I get is from myself. And that is a daily world in progress trying to get out of my own way.
In terms of fashion inspiration who is killing the game for you?
I would say Pheobe Philo. He style has always reassured me to keep loving my own minimalist style.
What is your best get your sh*t together advice and what’s the best advice someone has ever given you?
My Advice: If you’re confused with your priorities take it to pen and paper. Write down a list of everything you think is important. Then put a number next to each thing by level of importance. You’ll be surprised by what you’d find. Given to Me: Whatever decision you make, be happy with that decision and move one.
Best place to eat in your hometown…
“Dicks” A Family owned burger joint and “Maneki”a Japanese restaurant
What is one closet staple you think every girl should have?
A woman’s wardrobe is personal and up to her so I don’t really prescribe to “staples” for everyone. A staple for one girl could be black heels while another for another girl staple could be cowboy boots. I am all about authenticity and extreme personalization.
Your go to Nail and Lip Color?
I recently bought a daily go to lip color by Tom Ford called “ShowGirl.” Nails: whatever I’m in the mood for every two weeks.
What is the last thing you binge-watched?
Superhero power you’d like to have…
Teleportation! I love to travel.
NYC, Paris, or L.A?
All three thank you. Add Seville, Borocay and Santorini and that sounds like a dream trip to me!
Go to Junk Food…
Where do I begin?….Burgers, Malts, Ice Cream, Snickers, Donuts-that’ll do. Lol.
And finally if you could have dinner with anyone alive or dead who would they be and what would you eat?
Does having dinner with myself in 10 years count? Because that would be amazing. I’d also love to have a long conversation with Marie Forleo over Italian Food.
