Where are you from?
B:
I’m livin’ and reppin’ the town known as Chi!

Did going natural affect your style choices at all?
B:
Going natural very much affected my sense of style. I broke free. I became more daring in my fashion choices versus buying things I really liked and saying “maybe” or “someday” I decided my hair didn’t allow me to hide anymore, so I decided to obnoxiously stand out.

How does your hair complement your style?
B:
My hair is big and bold so I dress in bold colors. I love color blocking, and clean lines. I don’t like anything frilly or fluffy. My hair does that enough.

How would you describe your style?
B:
My style is nostalgic. I don’t think I’ll ever dress futuristic unless I was referencing blade runner. My favorite era to pull looks from is the early 80s. Relaxed fits, androgyny, bold statements.

What are the three favorite things in your closet?
B:
Generally my favorite things are an oversized blazer, a relaxed button down, and a high waisted trouser. (In all colors)

What are your three must-have items of clothing?
B:
I am dying for pastels and mints, girly colors in masculine cuts. Bold Sonia Rykiel inspired stripes, and anything from Aubin & Wills Spring Collection.

Your style is colorful. What’s your advice for selecting and incorporating color into a wardrobe?
B:
If it looks ridiculous your headed in the right direction. Start with color blocking, but pick your favorite color. Think complimentary colors, but in a new way. Instead of red and green, how about a mint blazer and easter pink trousers. Good luck! ;)

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
B:
Check out my fashion blog: avantblargh.blogspot.com, tumblr: avantblargh.tumblr.com…and tweet me if you like @avecbianca
