Next month, on April 16, Muse Appare
l in Phoenix is hosting a trunk show for the designer where fans can check out her latest collection first hand.
What are you wearing right now?
My own silk boho blouse and white linen pants from my Summer 2011 collection.
What is the last item of clothing you bought?
I rarely buy clothing as I have a closet full of my own designs to pick from, but the last item I bought was a short sleeve trench-style jacket in camel. It's a timeless piece that I can wear for years to come.
What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment?
Anything with interesting or unique detailing. There is a dress by Isabel Lu (the "structure shoulder dress") that I'm really in love with right now, but I can't find it anywhere.
Give us a childhood memory of you and clothes:
When I was 3 or 4 years old, my mom made me a Wonder Woman costume, which I couldn't get enough of. I wore it year round. I'm pretty sure I wore it to the grocery store a few times when my mom would take me with her.
Name five items every woman should have in her closet:
Name an item of clothing that's best when it's vintage:
A leather or fur jacket. Then you don't have to feel guilty and pieces like a vintage jacket tend to be "hip" for enternity!
What is your one piece of fashion advice for Phoenix?
Wear what looks good on you and what you feel confident in. This may not necessarily be what is "hot" right now, but having your own sense of style is so much more attractive.
If you stay away from ultra-trendy pieces and invest in more timeless styles, you will find your wardrobe has so much more versatility.
