Accountant by day, fashion blogger by night, Maxie shares her tips on looking good for work and the weekends.
You have $500 to spend on your wardrobe. What do you buy?
I would spend all of the money on one item because I truly believe in having a few designer pieces you can wear multiple times that really elevate an outfit. I’ve been eyeing the YSL espadrilles for over a year now and with spring approaching, I think this would be what I would spend all $500 on.
What was your favorite thing to wear when you were a kid?
I had what I would call an interesting sense of style when I was a child. I only wore graphic t-shirts with Disney characters on them. I refused to wear dresses which is funny because now I have a very girly style.
What did you wear to your last date night, and your last job interview?
On my last date night I wore a leather jacket with a black cami, black jeans and black heels. An all-black look is my go-to when I’m in a rush and can’t decide what to wear.
For the job interview, my company stressed not to dress in business clothes to the interview so I wore black jeans and a black and white polka dot top.
You have a time machine. What time and place do you travel to just for the clothes?
I would definitely go to the 1920’s. I love the flapper girl style and all things fringe! Of course, I would have to check out what a true speakeasy was like when I arrived.
What’s the biggest fashion mistake you’ve ever made?
My biggest fashion mistake was caring too much about what other people think. I was really guilty of this during high school. I wouldn’t wear items I truly loved because I was worried someone wouldn’t like them. Now I know I can’t please everyone, and it’s great that we all have different styles so I wear the things I like and feel comfortable in.
What’s the biggest change in the way you’ve shopped for clothes?
I almost exclusively shop online now. I used to really enjoy going to the mall and shopping in person, but shopping online is so much easier! I love being able do two of my favorite things at once, shop and catch up on my reality tv shows.
What’s the most important style item to invest in?
I think a classic, designer handbag is the most important item. If you have a high-quality bag, you can use it for so many years. I have girlfriends who use bags that were passed down from their grandmothers. If you’re making an investment, it’s important to know you will get a long-term use from it.
