Mary: I have always been very passionate about fashion. I remember the first time I was able to touch a pair of designer heels. I had a photo from a magazine taped to my desk of these Gucci heels with black straps and gold studs, I walked into Saks and there they were! The feeling I had when I got to hold that shoe… and it was only a shoe! My hands were shaking and I got really hot. Again, I was only touching a shoe! I started working in retail after college (graduating with a degree in biology from Ohio State) when I moved to Memphis which was a great opportunity to learn about fashion from a different angle. The more I learn about the fashion industry the more passionate I become.
Mary: This is a great question, I would like to know how others describe my style. I wear so many different styles I can’t narrow it to one. I love to wear loose clothes that have more of a bohemian vibe and add a leather jacket but I also like to wear jeans with structured blazers. My style changes based on my mood and where I am going but I do like for there to be an effortless feel to my outfits.
Mary: I get fashion inspiration from pretty much everywhere. People on the streets, nature, magazines, anything that catches my eye.
Mary: It is really important to know your body and dress for what looks best on you. Not every trend is going to work for every person. If you aren’t comfortable in what you are wearing it is probably not the best choice for you.
