Style Diary: Ariel B

Today’s style inspiration is my girl Ariel of Fashion Devotee. She knows her stuff. I am an ardent fan of her looks on Lookbook. This girl puts the fierce in vintage fashion, like seriously. Show her blog some love and I’m betting you you won’t regret it. I could speak about her effortless style for days but for now, I’ll just let Ariel do her thing.
Hello Darlings! I am Ariel and I blog over at Fashion Devotee. My blog is primarily a fashion, style and beauty blog focused on personal style development. I love to thrift and shop at vintage stores. I have a very vintage inspired look. Those stores allow me to add vintage pieces into my look and put a modern twist on them with tailoring and accessories. I am excited that Lydie reached out to me and asked me to do this feature.
What is your dressing style? What influences your style choices?  My style is feminine with a hint of vintage and old glamour. I am a “girly, girl”, I love to dress in feminine pieces. I always stay true to that and I never lose that femininity. I often feel like I was born in the wrong decade, I miss the era when dressing up was the way of life and not just reserved for special occasions.
Which brands or designers ‘speak to you’ the most?  I absolutely adore Jason Wu as a designer; his menswear inspired looks are always soft with the right hint of femininity. His ruffle and layers are always perfection. Elie Saab’s detailing and beading is breath taking.
Brands:  Zara, BCBG, French Connection, H&M. There are so many, those are just a few.
Any beauty secrets? For the days when keeping it simple is on the agenda a bold lipstick, eyeliner and mascara can really transform your face.
Favorite make-up brands. I love MAC for eyeshadow and lipstick. Nars has the most amazing blush. Stilla has great smokey eye palettes for everyday looks.
If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. with whom would it be and why?  Grace Coddington the Creative Director of Vogue. Creative direction is my ultimate goal because it combines my love for art, graphic design, fashion, photography editorials and wardrobe styling. In my opinion Grace is one of the most creative minds in fashion and will go down in history as one of the greatest living stylist.
What is your favorite trend right now?  Cap toe pumps
If your life was a movie, what would be its title and who would play you?  ‘Everyday is a Runway’ starring Kerry Washington.
Your top 5 must-haves:
-An LBD,
-cat-eye sunglasses,
-a bold lipstick (red or fuchsia),
-sky high heels,
-something leather (a bomber or skirt),
-a standout leopard accessory (clutch or shoe), 
-statement jewelry…that is a little more than 5  lol!
Your all time fashion icon is… I have a few favorite icons Whitley Gilbert from the sitcom A Different World, Jackie O
As far as current styles that I admire: Kerry Washington, Solange Knowles, Kourtney Kardashian, Olivia Palermo, and June Ambrose their styles inspire me.
Your favorite quote/saying  Every day is a fashion show and the world is your runway.”
