Her style cannot go unnoticed!
Me : How would you describe your style ?
Maria : If I have to give one fabric, I definitly will say : velvet. Velvet is elegant and cozy at the same time, and that is the definition of my style : elegant and comfortable. I like to have pieces that no one else has, so I always search for things that are not common. If something pleases me, I buy it without thinking about what I already have. I create my style progressively. I always wear colorful outfits, because I think that wearing just black and grey is really sad ! Another important thing is that I always wear jewels. I can’t go outside without some! My favorites are silver ones, and they are simple but imposing. I love African and Indian jewels. I have a big collection of it.
Me : Where do you find your inspirations ?
Maria : I am mostly inspired by the 19th century style, which I modernize in my own way. I always wear high waisted skirts. Each one of my outfits inspires me to be a character that I embody at only this moment. Each day, I am another part of myself. When I like the way I am dressed, I feel more confident and beautiful, and it is really important to me !
Maria : Today I’m wearing a floral top inspired by the 19th century men’s jackets, a black high waisted pant, an orange military-style coat that I bought at one of my favorite boutiques : Antoine&Lili. I complete my outfit with brown leather shoes, a red silk and velvet scarf, a black bag that I made, and my jewels of course: bracelets and ring, an indian necklace and an afghan necklace with a sapphire.
Me : Where do you usually do your shopping ?
Maria : I never go to the big chain stores like H&M, because I prefer to find unique or rare pieces. I don’t want to look like everybody. That’s why I often go in secondhand clothing shops or little boutiques, like my afghan’s jewels boutique at Odéon. A lot of my clothes came from my mother, who travelled a lot when she was young. Sometimes I do some research on the internet. When I travel, l like to go in small markets of artisans.
I would like to thanks Maria for this little interview, I really appreciate her taking the time to chat with me. Have a nice week and see you soon!
