FG: How would you describe your personal style?
AW: Janis Joplin meets Jackie O. I love all things feminine, long necklaces, flowing skirts and anything flowered. Yet, I still like classic lines and a clean fit.
FG: Name 5 items every woman should have in her closet.
AW: A great Trench coat-classically styled, black pencil skirt, perfect party dress (does NOT have to be a ‘Little Black’ version),a pair of flattering Jeans and a classic pair of pumps!
FG: Who is your fashion icon and why?
AW: Grace Kelly in Hitchcock’s ‘Rear Window’. She’s feminine and yet still classic. I love her full skirts and the detailing of her outfits. All of her garments also FIT will and flatter a feminine figure. Finally, she uses beautiful pops of color!
FG: What fashion trend is your least favorite?
AW: Short dresses. Almost nobody has the legs to look really good in a mini dress. Most of us that wear them just shouldn’t.
FG: What the weirdest item in your wardrobe?
AW: I have a beautiful purple and gold silk, quilted jacket that my mother brought home for me from Kazakstan. It’s definitely weird, but I love it!
FG: What is your style philosophy?
AW: Dress simply and have one ‘feature’ item to spice up your outfit. All basics is boring. And too much ‘exciting’ clothing in an outfit is too much. I like a basic outfit with one exciting feature. For example, I have a beautiful floral jacket that I wear with simple jeans and pumps. I also have a sequined skirt that I wear with a grey t-shirt and flats. 7.
