For this blog post, I decided to dedicate several posts to my dear friend and roommate, Elizabeth. Liz and I go back since high school, the moment that cemented our friendship was the fanatic teenage adoration we had for The Academy Is. Our music taste, dislike for snobs, obsession with books and love for luxurious things were the basic elements that formed our friendship. Our personalities and fashion sense however could not be any more different.
Liz personality is lively and outgoing. She creates an inviting environment for those around her, displaying a keen interest in the people she encounters. She’s noble, charismatic and coquettish, her characteristics reflected in her style.
Liz’s style incorporates classic staples with trendy accessories to make the look feel current. She’s drawn to clothes that flatter and work with her body while still concerned with making it her own. Although she sticks to feminine pieces such as squirts, flats and blouses, she mixes in tomboy elements like an over-sized jacket, rugged boots and boyfriend jeans to make the look entirely her own. The way she assembles her outfits are almost strategic. It’s confident but relaxed, delicate yet empowered and in your face without being too overwhelming. It’s a perfect paradox that functions so beautifully and why I selected her as my stylist for a day. Here’s a gallery of Liz working what her super sweet momma gave her (disclaimer: her mom is the cutest)
