Hands down — this week’s GURU Style Star Irene Johnson gave me the most unexpected answer yet when asked about the most treasured items in her closet! Wait until you read the final part of her response!
Irene’s striking, sleek and sophisticated transitional fall look caught my eye!
She is wearing a black poncho with fringe detail with sweater leggings and sandals. The monochromatic look makes her necklace and Bordeaux colored bag from Louis Vuitton really pop. Her bag is accessorized with a colorful strand of charms.
Irene is also donning a standout necklace. Its fringe look, with its multi strands of 14K white gold chains, parallels the fringe detail on her poncho. The necklace features repurposed diamonds that Irene had from other pieces.
Here is our photo shoot and Q&A.
How would you describe you style?
Classic with an edge!
What are the most treasured items in your closet and why?
My engagement ring and my necklace (the one pictured above). And, my husband if he is in my closet!
What is your favorite store in the mall and why?
Nordstrom. They always have what I want. They are so accommodating.
What trend are you looking forward to this fall?
I think a continuation of the poncho look.
