We all know designer runways and top fashion magazines are great places to seek inspiration and get a first-hand look at the latest trends. But here at C+C, we’re more interested in seeing clothes and accessories worn the real way by real people! Every month or so, we select a particular reader whose sense of fashion sets him/her apart from the rest. “Muse” is meant to be a platform of great style and individuality, and will hopefully inspire other readers to continue looking their best and experimenting fearlessly with their own wardrobes!
Name: Anequa Campbell
Occupation: Law Student/Blogger
C+C: Tell us about personality and background and how it’s reflected in your style.
Anequa: I’m a second year law student. I was born in Jamaica and moved to the States when I was 12– to New York. I’m a New Yorker do or die! When I was growing up, the women around me never wore pants. They were quite traditonal and had a classic look. It gave me a penchant for wearing dresses. I even have memories of my mom gardening in a dress!
C+C: Aside from the women in your family, where do you draw your inspiration? Who are your style icons?
Anequa: I love Audrey Hepburn– so femimine, so classy! That’s what I aim to look like! Also the cast of Gossip Girls, their wardrobe is off the chain. Zoe Saldana is underrated but I love what she does. Kerry Washington, too.
C+C: If we took a peek in your bag right now, what would we find?
Anequa: Lipgloss! I never leave the house without it. I love Lancome Juicy Tubes and lipsticks. They’re so pigmented and come in such pretty colors. A pair of shades, my ipod, mirror and a book called Should You Be A Lawyer (laughs).
C+C: What trends you feeling for summer 2011?
Anequa: Ultra ladylike, all the chiffon so feminine and soft. The brights, of course. I’ll be colorblocking a lot!
C+C: Define your personal style in 5 words.
Anequa: Eclectic yet classic, expressive, bold and elegant.
