Personal Style Interview: Barbara Isiaho

Barbara will probably kill me for this but she reminds me of a very cute doll!  Petite with perfect features. She is fierce don't mistake my impression and very much stylish and was gracious enough to share her personal style story with us.

 1. Outfit for a night out:  

 My outfit for the night is a little girly but glamorous…a fancy skirt with a simple flattering vest and heels. I like this outfit because it brings out all the best parts of my body and I can rock it at work and transform it to my night out outfit.

2. For lounging around you throw on..

My lounging outfit is a simple colored loose top and ripped jeans with comfortable wedges.  I love the outfit because it’s quite simple and chic. Ripped jeans is now so in and they just give me a relaxed feel. The wedges work well for me because of my height so I rock them instead of flats…they are comfy too.

Variety is the spice of life.

Wear your heart on your sleeve.
Fortune favors the bold.

Definitely my beaded bracelets.
