A: My name is Alex Isabella.
What is your style philosophy?
A: It would definitely be accessories. I believe accessories can either make or break your outfit.
How would you describe your sense of style?
A: I don’t really have one, I just wear whatever describes my mood or fits my profile…I like to switch it up.
What is your process of deciding what to wear in the morning?
A: Well first I go based on how I feel, and what I feel like wearing…then we take it to accessories. Accessories can be tough, you have to see what really goes well with what you’re wearing…sometimes if I like the accessories more, I’ll find an outfit specially for the accessories. And then, after all of that…I pick out my shoes, which is rarely ever hard.
What are the three favorite things in your closet?
A: My 6 inch Jeffrey Campbell pumps. My Mac Cartier Vintage Chanel Inspired Shirt…and (this is really tough) I guess you can say my black leather skinnies. You can never go wrong with leather.
What are some of your favorite shops/websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
A: Oooh! I have a lot. Here they go:
NayaVista.bigcartel.com, MacCartierVintage.bigcartel.com, Karmaloop, forever 21, And Nasty Gal.
How long have you been natural?
A: It’s going on a year now in November.
How and why did you transition into natural hair?
A: Well, I used to have a medium fade…started growing it out by wearing extensions. Then when the extensions came off, saw my curly hair and how much I loved it. So I decided to just let it grow. From time to time I either get a sew in to give my hair a break, or I leave out my natural for a couple of months.
What is your signature hairstyle?
A: Definitely my big curly hair!
Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
A: It would definitely be co-washing my hair about 2–3x a week with Shea Moisture conditioner, and just letting my hair dry naturally. I don’t really have time to twist up my hair at night or do anything near it so I just rock with my natural curls.
Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
A: Yes, my Instagram is @IAmAlexIsabella and my Twitter is the same. Also, I have a Tumblr. MyTinyIsabella.tumblr.com
