Fashion Gurus of The Week… Past Few Months Actually…

dsc01340

NAME: Michelle Najla Anthony

AGE: 20

HOMETOWN: Philadelphia, PA & Liberia

1. WHAT INSPIRES YOU WHEN CHOOSING YOUR CLOTHING?

The main thing that inspires me when choosing particular clothing to wear is sophistication and neatness. I like to look stylish, but also keep it simple. Color also plays a major role when I am choosing clothing. I like to mix things up, not always too bright but a little color.

2. WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE LABLES/DESIGNERS AND WHY?

I don’t really have a favorite label or designer because at the moment I cannot really afford the things that I would like to wear… Fashion can be high priced and affordable. There are places where you can go that have nice and affordable clothing,  from H&M to Heritage. Then there’s high priced clothing from,  Roc & Republic jeans to shoes like Jimmy Choos. I mean if you are a real FASHONISTA, you can make anything look name brand.

3. NAME A FEW PIECES (CLOTHING, SHOES, ACCESSORIES, ETC.) THAT YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT…

I cannot live without my heels and cardigans. I love them.

4. WHAT TRENDS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO/PREDICTING FOR THE FUTURE (NEXT SEASON, NEXT YEAR…)?

Well I’m hoping for a new look next season… I’m not really into the bright weird color look but people can pull it off and I don’t knock them for that. I’m looking for something different and hopefully trendy.

NAME: Samantha Turner

AGE: 20

HOMETOWN: Queens, NY

1. WHAT INSPIRES YOU WHEN CHOOSING YOUR CLOTHING?

The thing that inspires me the most when I choose my clothes is my mood. If I’m feeling a certain way, I tend to choose clothing that may reflect that, yet still looks good on me.

2. WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE LABELS/DESIGNERS AND WHY?

I don’t have one favorite label. If I like it and it looks good on me, that’s my favorite for the time being, whether it’s H&M or BCBG. My favorite designer will hopefully forever be Chanel, but I also like relatively new designers like Zac Posen. Chanel is just timeless and you can mix and match a Chanel jacket with Gap jeans. Zac Posen is fresh and I love the fit and lines of his clothes.

3. NAME A FEW PIECES (CLOTHING, SHOES, ACCESSORIES, ETC.) THAT YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT…

I can’t live without my iPhone and iPod, my Tory Burch flats, and Asos.com.

4. WHAT TRENDS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO/PREDICTING FOR THE FUTURE (NEXT SEASON, NEXT YEAR…)?

I’m glad that chunky stacked heel trend is still around because they tend to be sky high and actually the most comfortable. Although I like the padded shoulders in jackets and shirts trend, it may not take off like others. Even so I may try to get my hands on a cute little blazer or jacket with padded shoulders (not too much padding of course) to mix with a white tee shirt, some denim shorts and a pair of Keds. Cute, comfortable, and affordable all in one.

1. WHAT INSPIRES YOU WHEN CHOOSING YOUR CLOTHING?

I like things that are comfortable, girly, and eclectic. Mostly it depends on how many people will see me on a particular day.

If I could, I would wear Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, 3.1 Phillip Lim and DVF, I’d be a happy woman. This dang recession!

3. NAME A FEW PIECES (CLOTHING, SHOES, ACCESSORIES, ETC.) THAT YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT…

My Citizens [of Humanity] are the only jeans I will wear. I also can’t live without plain V-neck t-shirts. They go with everything!

I’m looking forward to flirty dresses and full skirts… To put a lil’ spring in my step!
