Fashion & Style: Chad


Introduce yourself:
Hello everyone! My name is Chad Molique and I am a Menswear Stylist based out of Columbus OH.  Believe it or not I had just started my blog Casually Tailored just about a month ago, and boy has it been exciting! I really look forward to growing my blog and being able to inspire others.

How would you describe your sense of style?
I would have to describe my personal style as “Modern Casual.”  Don’t get me wrong… I love a great fitting suit or blazer, but I'm not afraid to put an unconventional pattern with what is known as the traditional staple in menswear. I like taking traditional styles and giving them a little twist. I can dress something up or dress something down—it just depends on how I'm feeling that day. 



Where do you get your inspiration for each look?
There is not one specific place where I would have to say I go to get my inspiration. I am very fortunate that my surroundings are always changing, and I can take inspiration from a walk down the street, surfing the web or even at the grocery store. I am always taking ideas in, whether it’s a photo here or jotting down a note over there... Maybe that’s why my iPhone says I don’t have enough storage in the cloud anymore. 
What’s your ‘Go-To’ outfit for when you need to get ready in a hurry?
I can honestly say I have a denim shirt for any occasion.  If I don’t feel like thinking about my outfit, but still want to look put together I will go with one of those and a dark pair of denim.


What are the three favorite things in your closet?
1.)          Burberry Blazer (for when I want to look put together)
2.)          Selvedge Denim (for everyday)
3.)          Micro Print Shirts (i have quite a few)

If you had the option of replacing all items in your closet with items from a particular designer. Who would that be?
As cliché as this might sound I think I would replace my whole wardrobe with J Crew.  Their style and taste is very much like mine and I would be able to be ready for any occasion whether it is dressy or casual.



What are some of your favorite shops or websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
I really like walking around Soho in New York City.  There is such a wide variety of shops and retailers, and because it is New York they all have elevated store atmospheres.   Just walking around you get a big dose of inspiration and you feel like you can take on the world lol.


What fashion or styling tips would you give to someone who wants to improve their sense of style?  
“If it doesn’t fit, don’t force it.” Nothing is worse than pulling together a killer outfit, only to find out that the shirt is too big and the pants are too long. Take your time, know your facts, and you will look sharp!


Is there a blog/webpage or Youtube channel where we can find you?

Fashion & Style: Marijana


Introduce yourself!
Hi everyone, I`m Marijana, 24 years old university student of Faculty of Economics from Serbia, Polyvore addicted member known as Kenguri and blogger on Kenguristyle.com.

How would you describe your sense of style?
My sense of style tends to be very feminine and romantic. I love soft colors, flowers, prints or any kind of prints actually, so you can say that I'm a big lover of the boho culture too. Recently, I'm finding myself mostly in minimalism, so it depends I guess.


Where do you get your inspiration for each look?
I always tend to have one base item that I find interesting at that moment and to build outfit around that one, using inspiration from the Pinterest and Instagram. I love to see how other people combine items, and then to combine them in a different way, because it is more interesting in that way. .



What’s your ‘Go-To’ outfit for when you need to get ready in a hurry?
I'm always getting ready in a hurry, otherwise I would never leave the house :) I always prefer skinny jeans, striped shirt with simple sandals or Vans sneakers.


What are the three favorite things in your closet?
My favorite items from closet are mostly in closet all the time, because they are so loved. Those would be, Mulberry Alexa tote, Fuchsia Lilo stilettos and River Island striped T-shirt.

If you had the option of replacing all items in your closet with items from a particular designer. Who would that be?
Hmmm….That's a tricky thing, I don't like the entire opus of any particular designer. They all have different influences in each season, but if I would have to choose a few of them I would pick Anya Hindmarch for bags, Charlotte Olympia for shoes and Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney for clothing.


What are some of your favorite shops or websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
I love to check a lot of sites but in only one I'm actually shopping and it's www.officeshoes.com . I also like Zara of course as long with River Island, Forever 21, H&M and others.

What fashion or styling tips would you give to someone who wants to improve their sense of style?  
Less is more, always have that in mind. 

Is there a blog/webpage or Youtube channel where we can find you?
I have my blog and it's www.kenguristyle.com also you can find me on Polyvore http://kenguri.polyvore.com/
  

Have a great day!
