Real Life Style Icon: Audrey of ‘Be Frassy’

Name: Audrey Leighton
Age: 26
Location: I live & work in Paris & Barcelona
Online haunts: blog // instagram // twitter // facebook

Three reasons that you’re awesome:
I’m creative, very down-to-earth and really approachable.

What are you wearing right now, as you type this?
I’m wearing my pyjamas – they are pink and striped silk. So lovely!What is the last item of clothing you bought?
I bought two of the same denim skirt from Asos in different washes. When I really love something, I tend to buy all available variations. Saying that, I so rarely shop for clothes, I prefer to buy books these days.

What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment?
Laurence Dacade floral embroidered heeled sandals. I adore these.

What’s your daily beauty routine?
I drink 2 + litres of water every day, I eat very, very clean and I exercise a lot – healthy living is everything to me – and really the best way to feel beautiful.

In terms of bathroom beauty – I swear by Bobbi Brown’s foaming mousse face cleanser, I apply retinol to any blemishes and I exfoliate my entire body almost every day.


Do you have any weird or unusual beauty tricks?

I use 100% alcohol to cleanse and purify my t-zone, which tends to get a little oily, especially as the weather warms up.

What do you do/wear when you want to feel particularly beautiful?
Minimal makeup and an oversized crisp white shirt.

Tell us about a favorite childhood memory about your clothes.
My mom is an incredible seamstress, so she would make all my Halloween costumes, prom dresses…every last one. I got to design them and together we would create these flamboyant but wonderful outfits.What is your best thrifting score?
I have a few Hermes scarves that I bought for a couple euros. I love to wear them in my hair!

Could you tell us your top three style tricks/DIYs?
Don’t over accessorize. I always avoid this.
Match your shoes to your outfit.
Don’t emulate, just wear what feels right for you.

Thanks so much for sharing, Audrey! If you guys know of any fashion bloggers you think I should feature, leave links in the comments!

Real Life Style Icon: Sylvia of ’40 Plus Style’

An asymmetrical top and white pants  + style tips from your favorite 40+ style blogger!

Name: Sylvia van de Logt
Age: 48
Location: Singapore
Online haunts: blog // facebook // twitter // instagram

Tell us three reasons why you’re awesome!
Always be open to new ideas and up for new adventures. This has resulted in me living in seven different countries.

I don’t give up and work hard to achieve my goals and dreams. This helped create a successful website and me doing the work I love.

I’m honest and loyal and try to be the best mother and partner I can be.

What are you wearing right now, as you type this?
Shorts and a singlet. It’s the only way to stay cool in Singapore without having the aircon blasting 24/7!

Red leather jacket with a colorful scarf and an asymmetrical skirt. Such cute over-40 style!

What is the last item of clothing you bought?
Unique shorts and an asymmetrical blouse which will be perfect for my upcoming holiday.

What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment?
An asymmetrical Marni skirt.
What’s your daily beauty routine?
I swear by this serum, sunblock, day cream or bb cream, a touch of lipstick which I also put on my cheeks (I like this one.) Sometimes I will put eye makeup and mascara on as well. In the evening, cleansing and night cream.
Navy poncho with a colorful scarf, skinny jeans, riding boots, and a newsboy cap. Great fall outfit!
What do you do/wear when you want to feel particularly beautiful?
I love the touch and look of silk. I also know I look better when I add a touch of color. What I really need these days though to feel really beautiful is to get a good blowout. My hair is the most difficult to get right.
Tell us about a favorite childhood memory about your clothes.
I can remember that I was very opinionated about my clothes from an early age. I remember being very particular about my first communion dress which I went shopping for with my mother and got my way picking the one I wanted.

What is your best thrifting score?
I’m not very good at thrifting but am quite successful at getting some designer items at 70% off. My absolute favorite discounted item is a printed skirt from Preen. (I actually have 2 versions of that skirt now and love them both).

Could you tell us your top three style tricks/DIYs?
1. Focus on creating a great silhouette and apply the rule of thirds.
2. Embrace asymmetry. It creates great interesting lines within your outfit and adds a bit of an edge.
3. Add a touch of color or some interest to your outfits through the use of unique contemporary jewelry and other accessories.
Cropped white pants with a structural top and a red bag. A great summer outfit idea!
Thanks so much for sharing your style tips, Sylvia! If you guys know of any fashion bloggers you think I should feature, leave links in the comments!

Real Life Style Icon: Natalie of ‘The Tiny Closet’

This is one of many Real Life Style Icon interviews in which we talk to clever, interesting humans who also happen to be painfully stylish. And then we distract them while we raid their closets. 


Name: Natalie Live
Age: 31
Location: Los Angeles
Online haunts: instagram // twitter // website

Three reasons that you’re awesome:
LOL! Ummm, I’m a good friend, I have a great sense of humor, and I search for the goodness and value in everyone I meet.

What are you wearing right now, as you type this?
James Perse scoop neck tee and some really old school men’s long underwear. It’s actually pretty chic 🙂

What is the last item of clothing you bought?
I just bought stuff items from Asos.com actually! A tattered pair of jeans a few sizes too big because I want roomier feel and look and three oversize deep v-neck tees. I live in beautifully made tees!!

What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment?
Splurge: That’s always so hard to say. Since my closet is full of only things I adore, it’s hard to have a favorite – but the at the moment I am all about my sheer black floral jacket. It’s just so fresh.

Tell us about a favorite childhood memory about your clothes.
I remember my mom bought me the cutest green mini skirt. I was in the 3rd grade or something and I just thought it was the most grown up thing I owned. I would put it on in my room and sit and drink tea with my Teddy Ruxpin. I was the height of elegance.
What is your best thrifting score?
I went through a thrifting phase a couple years ago. Thrifting usually isn’t my thing as I love ultra modern minimalist fashion, but I did manage to hold on to some keepers. One being a white and black very Chanel-esque long fitted dress coat with gold buttons and a built in wrap at the neck. Very regal and East African looking.

Could you tell us your top three style tricks/DIYs?
1. Always have your clothes fitted! A shortening here and a dart or two there can make a huge difference to how you fit your clothes.
2. Balance. If I show my legs, I cover my top. If my top is revealing, I cover my legs.
3. If you’re going to splurge, do it on coats, bags and shoes. That’s all you need to look like a million bucks. The rest can be dirt cheap!

Thanks so much for sharing, Natalie!

Real Life Style Icon: Aminta Online

This is one of many Real Life Style Icon interviews in which we talk to clever, interesting humans who also happen to be painfully stylish. And then we distract them while we raid their closets. 
Name: Aminta Paiz
Age: 28
Location: Madrid
Online haunts: blog // instragram // twitter // facebook // youtube
Tell us three reasons that you’re awesome:
I’m fun, I have personality, I care about others.
What are you wearing right now, as you type this?
A furry pink headband, a printed surf top with “swim deep” printed on it, a black and white skater skirt, over the knee pink socks and white platform boots.
What is the last item of clothing you bought?
A thrifted yellow backpack.
What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment?
The Marc Jacobs multicolored sneakers and the Camper Himalayan sneakers.
Tell us about a favorite childhood memory about your clothes.
Playing dressing up has always been a great experience to me. I remember playing Snow White at the school. I was 9 and I designed my costume, bought the fabric, and made part of it with a glue gun. I took the rest to a professional seamstress to sew it for me, but I was directing how I wanted it sewn. I loved that day.
What is your best thrifting score?
I think the 80% of my clothes are thrifted, I’m very good at it. I always find great bargains – I have some $ 0.50 treasures.
Could you tell us your top three style tricks/DIYs?
1. Mix prints that are the same colors.
2. Try thrift shopping and DIY the stuff you buy to make it more personal.
3. Add fun accessories – I like kids’ backpacks, pom pom earrings, and bold shoes or tights.
Thanks so much for sharing, Aminta! Your pairing as phenominal. P.S. A male fashion icon who can (allegedly) wear white pants without getting them dirty and 12 cats in haute couture.
