Hey there Narnians! If you follow ntptn on Twitter or Instagram you know my love for Summer and her amazing book recs, subscription box reviews (music + books = dance party!) and all around great time to be had on her social media platforms. I had the lovely opportunity to chat with one of the kindest book bloggers about our mutual love of fashion, reading and music and here is what ensued…
Does your current read ever influence your day-to-day style?
Absolutely! I am a very visual person so when I am reading I am constantly imagining the tiny details of each character’s outfits. When I binge read The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, I bought a new leather jacket and started wearing dark red lipstick like Izzy. And after reading The Lunar Chronicles I spent 40 dollars on a an awesome KillStar Luna Necklace …. I love incorporating the books I love into my outfits.
Who are your fashion icons/inspirations?
First I would have to say Christian Siriano. I met him as an intern and had the chance to watch him work. Not only was he super kind to everyone around him but he was really dedicated to making women of all shapes and sizes look their best. Second would have to be Alexander McQueen. He embraced all of his shadows and allowed it shine through in his style. There is a specific McQueen quote that I really love and it sort of also explains how I feel about my personal style.
“People find my things sometimes aggressive. But I don’t see it as aggressive. I see it as romantic, dealing with a dark side of personality.”
As a former free-lance makeup artist, I am absolutely obsessed with your makeup! It always looks flawless and completely represents your personal style. I adore your bold lips. What are some of your favourite lipsticks?
What is your favourite trend?
HIGHLIGHTERS. I am obsessed with all things sparkly and any excuse to put glitter on my face is A++++++. Plus we are seeing a lot of colored highlighters and it makes me so happy to see people experimenting with these!!!!!!
Also loving all the metallic makeup we are seeing. It’s such a fun trend.
Now that we have covered all things current, what would you say are your can’t live without classic pieces?
The only piece of clothing that is an absolute MUST for me, is Spanx Leggings. These are the most well made leggings that I have ever owned and they feel so lush and look nice on any occasion. Not only that but they also smooth everything out; making me look even more flawless LOL
Also LIQUID LIPSTICK. I cant get enough of it. I can’t remember the last time I wore regular lipstick. I can’t leave the house without some in my purse because it completes every look and is SUPERRRR long lasting. Must have.
