Chic Natural Fashionista: Irene Lloyd

Welcome to another edition of Chic Natural Fashionistas! Today I'm featuring another beautiful woman with an amazing sense of style. Meet Irene Lloyd. She is a natural with a fearless sense of style that goes beyond the trends and the fads. She writes her own fashion rules and leaves the rest of us wondering, how she executes her looks so effortlessly and flawlessly. See what makes her a bonafide Chic Naural Fashionista by reading below....

Nappturally Chic Jere: Hello Irene and thank you so much sharing your amazing style with us. So, how would you describe your style?

Irene Lloyd: I would describe my style as free. I never really follow any "latest trend" or "what to wear" I just go with what feels good and looks good at that set moment.

NCJ: I love that about your fashion sense, Do you have one fashion item, you can’t live without? Is there a piece that will always be included in your wardrobe?

Irene: This may not be fashionable to some but I am much deeper than clothes. My one "fashion" item that I can not live without and will always be included in whatever I put on is my wedding ring. No matter what outfit I decide to wear, what shoes, it is never complete without my favorite piece if bling ;-)

NCJ: Awww, that is so sweet. I can completely relate... I feel "naked" without my wedding band. Do you have a secret to putting together such amazing and fashionable outfits?

Irene: Secret.... Humm let see, I go along with how the day moves and the sun shines.. Oddly enough most people tend to wear dark colors if its a gloomy rainy day.. I'm usually the one to wear the brightest of colors that day. "Add a little sunshine to your life". Trust me I pull out clothes and throw them on the floor about 5 times before I find the outfit that I want to wear for that day/night.

NCJ: LOL, we fashionistas can be so indecisive when it comes to what we are going to wear.... Where are your favorite places to shop? What catches your eye when you shop?

Irene: I am definitely a sales shopper, no shame there. My favorite place to shop would be H&M, Strawberry, Rainbow (yes I love rainbow stores... You just have to know how to put things together). Pairing a non-expensive shirt with a pair of bright color shoes and simple jeans can make your entire outfit look like it cost $100+ when it's actually around $60. I also shop at Mystique (if you're in the NYC area-you'll know), Forever 21 (mostly online- the stores tends to be way to unorganized for me).  I am a very simple shopper..

NCJ: I love that, I think it is so important for readers to know that you don't have to spend a lot of money to look amazingly styled. Do you have a celebrity style icon? A person you draw inspiration from...?

Irene: Draw inspiration- not so much.. But a celebrity that I adore in the style department would definitely be Rihanna and Kimora Lee-Simmons.
NCJ: Do you have any fashion advice for my readers?

Irene:  Never take yourself to seriously. Never let clothes define how you feel about yourself. We as woman tend to forget how beautiful we are because of how society tells us we should look. Also, don't ever think you have to spend a lot to look like a million bucks! It's not about how much you spend, it's all about how you put it together.

NCJ: Great advice!!Thank you so much for sharing your amazing personal style with us! It was a pleasure to get to know a little about you... You are truly a Chic Natural Fashionista that ROCKS!!!!
