Closet Raid: Florie

Florie was featured as a Natural Hair Style Icon on January 9, 2012.

Where are you from?
F:
I’m from London Town. 

Did going natural affect your style choices at all?
F:
I was a bit mousy before cutting my hair and being bald forced me to be bolder with my style, which also led me to appreciate my curves more.

How does your hair complement your style?
F:
I think my style is always evolving and I like to try new things, whereas I don’t really pay as much attention to my hair so I think it’s coincidental that they compliment each other so well.

How would you describe your style?
F:
My style’s a bit eclectic because I dress to suit my mood most of the time and my mood’s usually influenced by whatever books, music, movies I’m either reading, listening to or watching. Whatever I’m wearing though I like to make sure I have a good mix of grungy and glamorous at the same time…I practically live in my scuffed up converses, but I always have freshly manicured nails and a red lip!

What are the three favorite things in your closet?
F:
This changes all the time, but my favourite things in my closet right now are:
— vintage ochre silk shirt
— leopard print platform sandals
— vintage gold curb-link necklace+grey fur stole, both add instant glamour and polish to any outfit (two accessories = 1 item of clothing right?!)

What are your three must-have items of clothing?
F:
I’m a girl of simple tastes so my three must-have items of clothing might come off boring, but I couldn’t live without either of them!
— a loose grey t‑shirt or vest, perfect base for layering, always looks crisp and clean
— pair of indigo skinnies (dark stitching), if you’re a little thick on the bottom like me you have to be really particular about your denim
— black leather biker jacket, it’s casual but still structured and chic and looks great thrown over any outfit, glam or dressed down

Your style is edgy and chic at the same time. What’s your advice for adding a little edge into a wardrobe?
F:
I’m notorious for dressing everything down. I hate looking or feeling like I’ve put too much effort into an outfit, so my advice would be to be a bit lazier with your outfit choices, don’t over-think things and definitely don’t ever try to match your bag, to your belt, to your shoes, to your hair band because it’s just never that serious!

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?

Her style is so effortlessly chic. Or maybe it’s her confidence that makes it look so effortless.

So I’m assuming that you think patients undergoing chemotherapy are “ewww-looking” as well. Please, grow up. Anyways, I think she looks great. I wish I had her sense of style.
