For the past couple of weeks, I have been fashion daydreaming of wearing spring dresses and cute sandals. Alas, spring weather has come to Misericordia campus…for the most part. This week’s Fashionista owes her feminine spring style to Mary Kay, a cosmetic company based in the U.S. The most recent Mary Kay fashion collaboration occurred during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. They were the Official Beauty Sponser for CZAR by Cesar Galindo Show. Check out their blog, Beauty That Counts, for behind the scene photos! And you might also want to check out their Pink Lady Devotion slideslow in New York Times Magazine The Cut. But before you start clicking away, let us see how this Mary Kay consultant styles her spring dress.
Name: Leila Comerford
CollegeFashionista: Tell me where you got each piece of your outfit.
Leila Comerford: My dress is from T.J.Maxx. My chunky sweater is from Forever 21 but I actually bought it when I was thrifting with my friends. Also, I bought my boots at Macy’s. I love their vintage look to them.
CF: What are your wardrobe staples?
LC: First off, let me say that my style completely changed once I started working for Mary Kay. Mary Kay takes pride in their femininity and encourages their workers to wear dresses, skirts and heels. So those are my wardrobe staples, and denim as well! Because some of our meetings are called “denim and diamonds” so we all wear super cute denim jeans with added bling!
CF: Where do you look for fashion inspiration?
LC: Definitely Mary Kay consultants. They are all fashion queens! There is one lady in Texas, who I am very close with now, that has the best shoe collection. Hopefully one day I can have a shoe closet like hers.
CF: What stores do you shop at regularly?
LC: Usually I shop at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. But when I get my paycheck from Mary Kay, I like to splurge a little and go The Limited and Express.
CF: Describe your style in 3 words.
LC: Feminine, class, effortless.
How To: To start off this feminine look, wear a polka dot spring dress. Be sure to check out ModCloth and Ruche for your spring dresses. Add on a yellow mustard sweater. Add vintage-looking brown boots and you are ready to go.
