photo nov 14, 2 05 25 pmI met Briana Foster at Animal Rescue Foundation where I volunteer once a week visiting the cats and she works as the Events Coordinator. I noticed that Briana always looks stylish and put together sporting skirts and dresses. One summer day she was wearing an unexpected combination of an ARF t-shirt with a pretty floral print skirt. It  was then that I thought a Q&A was in order and Briana kindly agreed to participate.
So here we go …

 

You have great style, Briana and you always look nice at work. What inspires you when you’re planning a work outfit?

Thank you! I love dressing up and I try to do so no matter the occasion. Work is no exception. I usually have one item that is more casual and the other is on the dressier side. For example, I’ll pair a t-shirt from my work with a patterned midi skirt. However, if I’m feeling a little more casual, I like to pair some jeans with a nice blouse. Everything pretty much depends on my mood in the morning – I ask myself, “how am I feeling?”

Good idea to pair something dressy with something casual. That creates a unique look. 

How would you describe your style?

If you ask my friends, they would say I’m a mix of Taylor Swift and a 50’s housewife which is true to a point. I would say my style is more of a European twist on the 50’s.

Yes, I see a 50s vintage influence for sure and it suits you. 

Have you always been interested in clothes and fashion?

Yes and no. During high school, I tended to only wear jeans because I was scared and insecure when it came to clothes. However, I was always interested in fashion but I didn’t really get into it until my junior year of college when I studied abroad in London. I was really inspired by their street style and I started experimenting (with the help of my flat mates) trying to figure out what I liked vs. what I disliked. I love clothes because it’s one of the ways I express myself. The other is makeup.

What an opportunity you had in London – a wonderful place to find style inspiration. 

Do you have favorite brands or places to shop?

My favorite stores are H&M and ModCloth.com. However, if I’m looking for a nice coat or jacket, I tend to gravitate more towards Zara as their quality and pieces are more in line with my style.

What’s your go-to accessory?

Lipstick. I love playing around with different shades and brands trying to figure out what will work, what won’t work, and building my collection. My go-to shade is NYX Matte Perfect Red. It lasts all day and doesn’t fade. My favorite brand is Fenty by Rihanna. The shades in her collection are amazing. Each one applies smoothly and is long lasting.

Thank you, Briana. I look forward to seeing your next great outfit at ARF!
