Personal Style Interview: Melissa Edel

I have known Mel from high school  and at some point we were neighbours, and despite her moving to another country I still consider her a friend,so I'm pretty excited that she agreed to be part of this series.  She is  a wife and a mummy but one who has not let herself fall into the letting yourself go category that some do. She is certainly NOT #TEAMFRUMPY!

Some say fashion is cyclic; others see it as a constant reinvention of taste. But no matter how you look at it, style is always personal.

1. Outfit for a night out:   

2. For lounging around you throw on.

Lounging clad, its comfortable and I can play with the kids in it

3. Which motto do you most relate to?
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Variety is the spice of life.

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

You can never be too rich or too thin.

Variety is the spice of life.  I like different things, I like to mix different things and make them work for me. I feel like doing the same thing is boring.  And the different things we do in life make life more interesting

4. What’s your signature makeup look?

5.If you could only wear one piece of jewelry it would be? Earrings, i love all kinds of earrings, from ear dots to the big crazy hoops it just depends with where i am going and what I am wearing

6. What would you wear for a typical day at work?
I work in hospital and we wear,scrubs, not very interesting, especially now that we have to wear one color. But I try to color it up with make up and earrings

7. What is your favorite accessory? hand bag, i love hand bags. I always carry one, i try to match them with my clothes whenever i can, if i can't i just carry black, it's always safe.

8. Who do you consider your celebrity fashion icon? mhh let me think, i would say i am all over the place with no one in particular, i copy what i feel fits my body type and that might not be most of what one person wears. But generally speaking, maybe Beyonce. I also like the style of girl with curves, she embraces her curves very well and with style.

10. Describe the underwear you are wearing RIGHT NOW. Victoria secret pink with black stripes regular panty; I'm at work I have to be comfortable with all the bending and lifting that we do.
11. What is your age group? Early twenties? Mid twenties? Late twenties? In your thirties? In your forties? late twenties, 30 is knocking,,,, I'm growing old.

12 What is your occupation? I am a Registered nurse at a hospital, yay!

13. Are you a parent? Yes And if so does it have an impact in your style. Yes it does as i have to dress for the occasion especially if i have the children with me, i have to dress in a way that i can still be able to carry the little one and run after the 5 year old when she runs off to the road and don't fall off on my face, but that doesn't mean I dress down, I still dress up, all the time.

My son Jayden

14. Are you married and if so does it affect your style? yes I am married, it impacts my style as when he says that looks cute i keep it, but when he says ' is that not so tight' i might change it or change part of it' just to maintain the peace, but mostly i just wear whatever i chose as he likes most of my style.

My husband and I.

15. What you would never be caught dead in? Pleated skirt or dress, makes my but look like its two people back there, its already big, i don't need any more attention back there.

16. What’s one trend or look that really irritates you? Women who dress down all the time, it doesn't matter where they are, club, meeting, party, outing they always have the same look like jeans and a t shirt. I go like ' you don't have to wear a micro mini dress but maybe a blazers with jeans, or heels would have made a difference or just dressy shoes instead of the flip flops'.

17. What inspires your style? Everything, the magazines, my friends, celebrities, TV, but mostly its myself, after i see all this fashion, i settle down to what do i like, what looks good on me and what is comfortable when i wear it.

18. Your best physical feature or one you get most compliments? My butt, i get a lot of compliments it gets me in trouble but i like it, even when i work out , i work to firm it as that is my identity, i'm a curvy girl and proud of it.

19. Last outfit your bought? peplum dress i have to wear to a bacholorette party tonight

20. Your personal style in one word. Fabulous

21. Worst look you ever wore? I can't think of any, I always try to look good every time I step out of the house, but wait probably when I wear a big top almost like a dress with pants, again, makes my butt look extra huge.

22. A look that you always find attractive in the opposite sex? I like a guy in a fitted suit. Oh and I like men with beautiful feet. And no, I don't have a picture for that, lol!

Hubby in a suit.

23. What is weird about you? My sister says, I'm very unpredictable, I'm sometimes very happy and then sometimes flat lined, I personally don't think that's true. Oh and some people think I'm a snob before they talk to me, to the contrary I'm opposite that! And everyone who knows me will attest to that.

24. What is unique about you? I can get along with different types of people; cultures, race, nationalities, tribes you name it, I always try to know the people and not their tribe, or color or race or whatever else is their identity.
