Style Profile | Mella

Sunday, August 2, 2015

Go best fran that's my best fran! Had the pleasure to interview my best friend Mella T for my first style profile. Read below for  great advice from this self proclaimed sarcastic yet loving asshole.

Sooo tell me about yourself

I'm a 22 year old NYC based hairstylist. I hate doing color but ask for a cut and I'll bang it! I'm outgoing, sometimes funny or corny and I never take life too serious. I don't have a favorite color, I thought I did but I just like whatever looks good. I repeatedly watch the same movies, I'm not really open to watching just anything; I'm very picky. I can eat Pizza all the time but it has to be paired with wings! I like beer as opposed to hard liquor, just sits better.

How would you describe your style?

I don't really have a style, I think. I'm very diverse so one day I can doll myself up and the next I can look like a complete tomboy. I think as a young lady I definitely have my days with what look I'm going for. I haven't tried being "edgy" though.. I should, that'd be new.

Any Celebrities that you look up to fashion wise?

Hmm good question. I never really look up to celebrities for fashion mainly because I can't afford what they own! But if I had to choose I would say Kelly Osbourne. I think she is so chic and can rock anything well, she also has a kick ass persona.

What are your staple pieces? 

???? C'mon Pili next question

Where do you get most of your clothing from?

I don't have a favorite store to get my clothing from. Like I said earlier I'm diverse so I own a lot of pieces from H&M, Forever21, Marshalls, etc. I do love Topshop though. You can find some pretty good stuff and deals every so often.

What would you tell your sixteen year old self?

I would tell my sixteen year old self to stop wearing boot cut jeans with Air Force 1s; also not to stress over a guy..So much time wasted.

How has your style changed over the years?

My style has deff evolved over the years! I actually look nice when I try to and I definitely let go of low cut jeans; they create a muffin tops and they aren't edible!

Any advice you would give to anyone who wants to experiment with their style?

I say go for it, try different looks, create something uniquely for you. Just have some honest people to tell you what looks good, don't look like a fool.

What inspires your personal style?

A couch inspires my personal style, VERY laid back and chilled.

What was the last thing you bought? 

The last thing I bought were 2 pairs of Sam Edelman. Saw them in Marshalls months ago and always told myself next time I'll get them. Saw them the third time and grabbed them! They were on clearance! Super bargain.

Were you allowed to dress yourself as a kid?

My mother is pure Dominican breed! I wasn't allowed to even pick out my own clothes until I graduated elementary school.

Wild wish?

Hmm, have the guts to runaway and explore the world on my own, not have anyone know about me.
