Meet Our Head Stylist…

I’m delighted for you to meet our Head Stylist this week, Mae from Mae Amor. I adored this outfit she styled recently – I’m a sucker for hats and don’t even get me started on these perfect booties…

STYLE Q&A WITH MAE:

How would you describe your style? Laid back and classic.  Whether I’m going to dinner or running errands, I like to wear simple, timeless pieces and dress them up or down accordingly.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving? I am in love with capes and statement coats right now!

What inspired you to start your blog? I’ve always loved fashion and people have always asked me about my outfits.  I wanted to start a blog for quite a long time, but it wasn’t until I was in desperate need of a creative outlet from my then nine to five that I actually got started.  Now blogging is so much more than a creative outlet.  It can be hard work, but it leads to such amazing opportunities and a fabulous community.

Name a couple beauty products you couldn’t live without: Concealer, liquid eyeliner and mascara – Benefit Fakeup, Kat Von D Tattoo Eye Liner and Benefit They’re Real Mascara, respectively, are my favorites right now.

What is your best beauty trick? I try never to wash my hair two days in a row.  A little tip I’ve learned to help me get more out of each wash is to part my hair in the center on day one.  Then on day two, I opt for a side part, which instantly gives my hair a little lift without having to wash or style it again.

Tell us something not many people know about you? Something that not a lot of people know about me is that I have been obsessed with art for as long as I can remember.  I paint, sculpt, draw, and dabble in nearly any art where I can create with my hands.  Growing up, there was rarely a time when I didn’t have a sketchpad and pencil by my side.  In fact, my mom tells me that when I was little I would wake her up in the middle of the night and ask for my art supplies because I had an idea and I just “really need to draw, mom!” and I also had the “30 second Orca” that I would draw on demand for my dad’s friends.  My love for art is actually one of the biggest reasons I fell in love with fashion.  I used to dream of outfits and then wake up and draw them.  These two loves (of art and fashion) are almost inseparable for me.

  20. Lauren that is such an unusual top: I thought you’d layered two pieces at first! The floral is gorrrrrgeous and of course you absolutely ROCK funky-but-still-ladylike pieces like a leather skirt. Dee-vine.

    Thank you for hosting my lovely, have a good week!
