For our first installment of the new "In the Closet" series, we feature Michelle B. I like Michelle's style. It is fly, but not over done. She describes it as classic with a twist. "I'll pair a button shirt with a cardigan and pencil skirt, and [add] a funky bootie. I like to be a little edgy." Her most recent fashion splurges include an oyster colored dress and beaded and sequined mini skirt from All Saints and a leather and tweed blazer and gold sneaker wedges from Michael Kors.
Michelle's favorite "go to" item in her closet are her leggings. "They're comfortable, easy to dress up or down and flatter my shape." She also gets a lot of wear out of her blue button up shirt from Brooks Brothers. "It's easy to wear, is wrinkle resistant, elevates my outfit, plus it's Oprah's 'go to' button up too." Michelle has incorporated several pieces from her late grandmother's closet as well, including a camel colored pencil skirt, "it's flattering, it's sophisticated."
Appropriate undergarments, such as slips, bras designed for certain shirts and proper underwear to avoid panty lines is what Michelle thinks more women should be conscious of wearing. I wanted to find out more of her thoughts on clothes and fashion. So two Fridays ago, I visited Michelle at her Hyde Park apartment to check out her closet. Click here to take a peak inside!
