We recently launched a series called Steal Her Style with Mackenzie Horan of Design Darling and Merritt Beck of The Style Scribe. Today we are sitting down with a lady with an equally steal worthy closet, Lacey Maffettone! Lacey runs the lifestyle blog A Lacey Perspective, one of our go-to’s for chic feminine inspiration. Her cheeky play-on-words name is a good indicator of her fun and light hearted approach approach to both writing and fashion!
Lacey’s takes classic approach to style, but her secret is to add a preppy twist -our favorite! She is the master of mixing colors and patterns. She makes classic silhouette totally fresh with an unexpected pair of green and pink and multicolor shoes. With such stylish know-how, we had to ask Lacey about her secrets and how she makes her mark!
How do you make your mark with fashion?
I like to think I make my mark with fashion by adding a twist of the unexpected to any look I wear. For example, taking a typical top and skirt combo and color-blocking or pattern mixing. I love when a reader comments or someone stops to tell me “I never would have thought to pair that together.”
What item in your closet can you not live without?
My white Equipment blouse for sure. It can go with anything and be dressed up or down.
What will be your next purchase?
A nude peep-toe pair of Louboutins to anchor my spring and summer looks.
Where do you go for inspiration?
Street style blogs and as many magazines I can get my hands on.
Whats the best fashion advice you have ever received?
Dress for no one but yourself.
_____is the new black
White is the new black.
Lacey, thank you for sharing your style tips! We are going to be on the look out for nude peep-toe heels to add to our closet for Spring and Summer!
