Chic Natural Fashionista: Raven



NCJ: Hello Raven and thanks for sharing your amazing style with us. I just admire your fashion choices and your style; It seems effortless, chic, and trendy! How would you describe your style? Does it fall under a particular category?

Raven: My style is Vintage. Classic with Trendy touches

NCJ: Very nice!! Do you have one fashion item, you can’t live without? Is there a piece that will always be included in your wardrobe?

Raven: A good pair of jeans. I have really long legs so trying to find jeans that are long enough can be a challenge at times. Plus you can always dress them up or dress them down. A great day to night option.

NCJ: I love a great pair of jeans! What is your secret to putting together such amazing and fashionable outfits?

Raven: I put together things based on my day. What I’ll be doing, where I’ll be going and the weather etc. Then I usually start with an item I’ve had in mind for that day, then build the rest of the outfit around it.

NCJ: Where are your favorite places to shop? What catches your eye when you shop?

Raven: Right now I’m really into thrifting so Goodwill, Salvation Army etc. are my favorite places to shop. I usually look for items I want or need. If the item is neither it has to be a “can’t live without this” piece, i.e. I just bought a Giorgio Armani silk coat. This piece was on the pricier side of thrifting at $45 but I had to have it, no idea where I’m going to wear it yet but it was definitely an investment. Outside of thrifting Forever 21 and H&M are my staple go to shops.

NCJ: Do you have a celebrity style icon? A person you draw inspiration from...

Raven: I love June Ambrose and Nicole Ritchie. But I buy what I like; I draw inspiration from what I see in store or in magazines.

Thanks so much for sharing your fashion tips with us! If you want to see more of Raven's fabulous style.
