Blogger Q&A: NikStar

XOXO NikStar

Who is your favorite fashion designer and why?

I love Alice + Olivia, Qristyl Frazier and Monif C. Sorry! I could not pick just one. Although I can’t fit anything but accessories from Alice + Olivia, I still draw inspiration from their clothing. As far as Qristyl and Monif are concerned, I think they really know the plus sized figure.

What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?

As of right it’s the denim jacket that I “borrowed” about a month ago from my friends closet. I will probably be in pain when she finally remembers that I have it and wants it back. haha I’ve been trying to find my own, but no such luck yet.

If you were allowed to create a beauty product, what would it be and what would you name it?

I have such a hard time matching my skin up to foundation. I know one of the drug store lines claims to blend and match perfectly with your skin, but I have yet to see that happen. Hmm so I’d create the most perfect foundation ever and since I’m not clever with naming things, I shall call it…Skin!

If you only had 10 minutes to pack for a fashion extravaganza in your favorite city, what would you bring and where would it be?

First, I’d probably starting sweating profusely at the idea of packing in ten minutes. I hate packing! I’d bring my trusty black pencil skirt, a LBD, brown heels and black heels, a pair of jeans and comfy tees, “my” denim jacket and a navy blazer.

Do you live by a fashion philosophy or quote? What is it?

Not really. I wish I could say something that sounds witty and profound, but I really just enjoy fashion. I may not be as extreme or edgy as some people are, but I like to take bits and pieces of what they are wearing and work it into my wardrobe. I like a classic trend with a bit of “I did not see that coming” edge to it whether it’s my hair, my polish or accessories. Oh wait a minute, I thought of a quote! “A girl should be two things; classy and fabulous.” ~Coco Chanel
