Talk about timing. Just after I decided to do an OXBLOOD themed blog post (that’s the IT burgundy hue I profiled earlier this week), Meredith walked by me in Starbucks!
Meredith’s cropped, faux leather jacket is an H&M score! Her lace top is XXI Forever. They pair well with her grey skinnies. Meredith’s wing tip, lace-up heels are from Nordstrom. Her bag is Louis Vuitton, and the sunglasses (in her hands above) are Prada.
When it comes to her style, Meredith tells me, “A mix of high end and more budget friendly items is my favorite way to do it — as long as you have a couple key high end pieces — like bags and sunglasses. I fill in the rest with less expensive things.”
Here’s our photo shoot and Q&A.
If someone used three words to describe your style, what would they be?
Functional, achievable and sophisticated
Who inspires you in terms of style?
What are the most treasured items in your closet?
I just went to Paris and bought a Chanel lipstick and nail polish from the original Chanel store. I love them!
What is your favorite store in the mall and why?
I like to window shop in the high end stores and recreate the looks at stores like H&M and Forever 21.
