Name: Brittany Hinrichs
Profession: Blogger & Social Media/ Marketing Manager
Favorite Color: Pink - light pink to be exact
Least Favorite Color: I’ve never been much of a yellow person
Style Description: I always have a hard time answering this question. After having to finally figure it out, I’ve decided that my style is very feminine chic. I’m all about mixing a floral dress with a leather jacket or a white button down shirt with distressed denim and heels. I work long hours, so I also have to make sure that whatever I leave the house in can take me from day to night with comfort and ease.
Style Icon: Miranda Kerr and Kate Bosworth
Favorite Designers/Brands: If we’re talking designers, I’m a huge fan of all Karl Lagerfeld and Marissa Web, but as far as brands, I guess I have to give a shout out to Zara since it consumes over half my closet.
Least Favorite Designers/Brands: Jeremy Scott – he’s really the only one I can’t stand unless you’re counting Kanye as a designer now. Then it would be Kanye
Favorite Shoe Style: Sneakers
Least Favorite Shoe Style: Crocs –is there really any other answer to this question?
What You Love to Wear: Leather/waxed denim, midi dresses, oversized blouses or a leather jacket are usually my go-to pieces.
What You Hate to Wear: Spanx! Most women love them, but I feel like I’m lying to people about my body. I’d rather look 2 pounds heavier than be sucking it in all night.
What You are Afraid to Wear: Short skirts or dresses - the last thing I need is a wardrobe malfunction!
What is Work Appropriate/Your Typical Workplace Attire: This is a tough question because my work environment is not like many other people. I go in each day wearing waxed denim, ankle boots andflowing white top, but for someone who’s in a more professional environment, I would say you could never go wrong with black pants and a blouse.
Do You Like to Accessorize (Jewelry, Scarves, etc.)? I’m not much of a jewelry person. I wear the same earrings and rings every day. Handbags however, are another story! I’ve been a self proclaimed “bag lady” ever since I can remember.
Favorite Stores/Boutiques: Zara, Banana Republic, and Nordstrom
Style/Fashion Tips and/or Advice: My favorite quote is; “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself” by Coco Chanel. My advice is always to be yourself, that, and to never wear leggings as pants – both as equally as important.
Stylish Aspirations: I have some pretty exciting things in the works already. I just re-launched my blog, and hope to shake up the blogging industry by bringing some much needed honesty and wittiness the craft. Stay tuned ;)
