What are you wearing right now, as you type this?
It’s a bit chilly here so I have a maxi knit dress, with my Chinese kimono over it and my long cashmere robe on top of that.
What is the last item of clothing you bought?
The last item of clothing I bought is my knit fringe skirt – I was influenced by the long-awaited Great Gatsby movie!

What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment?
Actually, I’m coveting an accessory. I am very creatively motivated to work some turbans into my daily attire (especially for home). Having been unable to find any to my liking, I know I have to get some fabric on the cutting table.
Tell us about a favorite childhood memory about your clothes.
I loved the beginning of each school year! Shopping for a whole new wardrobe, the excitement of new beginnings, fresh starts, personal reinvention. I still see all that in a new wardrobe choices today.
What’s your best thrifting score?
My best thrifting scores are undoubtably the fur collars and stoles I have recently purchased. I would have to say my all time favorite thrift score was made by my daughter, on my behalf. It was in Italy and she found the most amazing convertible fox collar that became a staple in my fall wardrobe when I was in Europe.

She is FABULOUS!! This is the best Real Life Style Icon I've seen yet. Normally they're not really my thing because the girls are usually seem to be some variation of "quirky" but Tamera is rocking big hair and fur and I love her. Totally loving her joy of life because she is glowing with vivaciousness!


Isn't she just the cutest? Great interview, Tamera is not only a beautiful style icon, but a beautful person through and through.


Tamera is a style icon. I love the sense of play in her style, and at the same time she projects an incredibly polished image. She is a true artist, and her jewellery creations are stunning!


OMG!!! I want to be as awesome as Tamera at 54!!! Oh Gosh!!! You gorgeous lady you!! – Monika

That was so fun! I hope to be that fabulous NOW let alone at 54. Great post. I'm enjoying poking around your blog by the way. We follow each other on Twitter but I had not visited the blog before. I'm a fellow Twin Cities blogger. 🙂

I love this woman. I wish we could all just get together and have sparkling water/other beverages and discuss how to incorporate more faux fur into our lives.
