Ashleigh: Describe your style.

Mari: I'd like to say it's classic with a twist. It's very minimalist chic with a hint of structure and some vintage inspiration.

Ashleigh: Who is your style icon?
Mari: I have two! I'm a huge Halle Berry fan. Her style is always right on target, from the red carpet to her everyday outfits, she bleeds fabulosity! My other icon is the beautiful Tracie Ellis Ross! Her outfits are absolute perfection. When it comes to style, she's always ahead of the game!
Ashleigh: Do you think style is important? Why?
Mari: Most definitely! It's the number one way we express who we are to the world. You could tell a lot about a person by their style of dress. A LOT!
Ashleigh: What makes you feel glamorous?
Mari: My low cut hair....My pixie brings out the glamour in me every time. I like to pair up my hairstyle with low-cut outfits to give it the spotlight.
Ashleigh: What advice would you give to others that are trying to define their style?
Mari: Wear whatever your heart desires. Be daring with your style. You never know...you may start the next trend!

Ashleigh: Who is your favorite designer
Mari: I'm in love with Stella McCartney's designs. They're structured and simple, yet sexy. Just my style. For shoes, I like just about anything Rachel Roy. She's definitely got a grip on what a girl likes on her feet. 

Ashleigh: Where are your favourite places to shop?
Mari: My ultimate favorite store is Zara. Their pieces are timeless. Second favorite place is definitely H&M. Who doesn't love H&M?



Ashleigh: Name one fashion trend you hate.
Mari: The Spikey "Killer" Heels trend is killing me. No pun intended! But I can't wait for that trend to fade and classier styles to surface again!

Ashleigh: When you meet the opposite sex, what is the first thing you notice about them?
Mari: You can tell so much from a man's shoes, so I make it my first point of reference. 

Ashleigh: What look/style do you like best for guys?
Mari: A bold preppy look never goes out of style...and it's sure to catch my eye.
