I am not sure how she manages to tend to 3 blogs, but she really does! And on top of that she is a single mom to 5 boys...YES, 5 BOYS! Aged 17, 13, 15, 10 and 2 1/2.
I was excited to read her answers, and you will love them...she is such a classy lady and I have to hand it to her. She has raised these gorgeous boys and doesn't look a day over 20. Thanks Erica for participating and giving us a sneak peek into what inspires you...
1. What's your "uniform" or go-to outfit?
My daily go-to outfit consists of J Crew signature black leggings + top and what ever foot wear is in season. It's just easy and comfortable.
2. Who's closet would you raid if you had the chance?
If I had the chance to raid someone's closet it would definitely be the set closet for gossip girl (does that count??) That would be a dream come true.
Inspiration is a funny thing, and of course I find inspiration in my kids (I'm supposed to say that right?) But, if I were to explain where creative inspiration comes from I'd say it lies in the every day mundane. A beautiful button on a shirt, packaging, the shades and hues found in nature, etc...
I would LOVE to splurge on some Brian Atwood pumps.
That's one of a personal nature... cutting my hair short. Awful! Two words: Frizz Bomb. Oh.. and overalls in the 90's.
6. How has becoming a mom affected your fashion choices?
Being a mom meant accepting that I can't wear heels everyday. I've caved in the last few years and bought a generous selection of flats to compensate for the sting of giving up heels. I also got in the habit of always wearing off white Ts when I had newer babies to hide the 'spit-up crust shoulder'. Happy to say I can wear black again.
7. What are your favorite beauty items?
Nars 'Penny Lane' blush, Bobby Brown shadows, mascara and lip gloss/balm.
8. What item in your closet do you love the most?
Maybe not the answer you were looking for, but I'd have to say the feature wall. It trumps any delight procured by clothing.
I'm always impressed with Joe, a line carried at Real Canadian Super Store.
Favourite kids splurge would definitely be my smallest son's burberry coat and uggs. He can be wearing PJs underneath but he looks polished on top.
Thanks for having me Melanie! xo
