Heavily influenced by menswear. I can’t part with my solid men’s trousers and sweaters from my New York days. Also, black is the color I naturally gravitate toward because I live in Berlin, but I am working hard to bring in more color. I am also a mother of two young kids, so ease and practicality are key when considering new wardrobe pieces. I have toned down the strass and toned up the chic daywear!
...pieces are La Ligne Toujours turtlenecks, Toteme camel coat and jeans, Gucci loafers and Dr Martens velvet boots. They are all in heavy rotation.
...pro tips for organizing are taking polaroids and sorting everything by weather.
...essentials I'm on the hunt for are mini skirts, spring boots and vintage Celine white heels.
...when I moved to Berlin through word of mouth—everyone was talking about it. I love both the app and the site to upload all my treasures, and I'm starting to build a nice selection of both menswear and womenswear. My favorite part is negotiating with a potential customer and the simplicity of use. I love the thrill of the sale and knowing that pieces I loved are getting a new home!
...I ever received was "We change, our lives change, our fashion tastes change." It's been hard for me to part with pieces from when I lived in New York, but I am slowly embracing it, and I've realized my style comes from constantly changing, so in the end change is a good thing. Then, the best advice I'd give is what makes you feel good will look good (except sweatpants).
