Eye on Style: Dawn from The Alternative Wife

Dawn makes every morning just a little sweeter for me when I stop by her yummy {really can't think of any other word} blog for a moment of reflection on life's little luxuries. I'm so happy that she's here today as TrustYourStyle's Eye on Style guest. If you don't already know about The Alternative Wife, it's a wonderful must-read for the mornings. Enjoy!

TYS


name: Dawn Guarriello

location: NYC

occupation: Cosmetic Product Developer

wearing: Skirt: Zara, Top: Topshop, Boots: Pour La Victoire, Tights: Wolford, Shades: Chloé Bag: Chloé, Ring: YSL, Bracelet: Marc Jacobs

favorite designers: Chanel, Chloé, Missoni, Balenciaga, Burberry Prorsum, Blumarine, Prada, Gucci, DVF, Marc Jacobs

what style means to Dawn: For me style starts with being comfortable in your own skin. Confidence and a smile can work wonders for whatever you are wearing. If I had to define my style I’d call it classic with a glamorous twist. I like to mix classic pieces with trendier items. Luxurious fabrics make me feel spoiled. I like to show a little skin but not in a vulgar way. A cut out back, off the shoulder top, that sort of take on it. I’m almost always wearing a skirt or a dress. Black and neutrals dominate my wardrobe and I use prints and shimmer as accents. A leopard accessory or sequined cardi can really make the outfit.

I love the idea of being classic with a glamorous twist. I may need to start referring to my own style that way, as well.

Wonderful feature, Mary Jo! J'adore Dawn! :)
