A few weeks ago I sat down wit Ashley Lindo who is a good friend of mine to talk about style among other fashion related topics. Ashley is a 20 year old Fashion retail and management student at The Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham. I chose to interview Miss Lindo because her style has always stood out to me way before we became friends. When I think of a “Fashionista” this girl definitely comes to mind. Read on to find out where Ashley’s love for fashion came from and why she adores Rihanna and Olivia Palmero!

Tomboyish, yet girly.

Bre1
Being a tomboy does not mean that we do not know how to dress or that we do not like dressing up we just have a certain way of pulling it off. The greatest thing about being this type of female is that nobody is aware of what you look like in a dress and a cute pair of heels. While wearing our choice of clothing we often hide our shapes without actually intending to. However, we are also considered the most modest amongst our group of friends and when we do dress to impress everyone is normally super surprised by the level of our style.
Sweatpants and sneakers will always be my best friend but I have recently noticed how much I also love wearing heels. I will assume the problem is the comfortability of the sweat pants and the cuteness of the heels. But I am here to assure you that it is perfectly okay to love both heels and sneakers.

Lindas feature image
Imagine this setting.. it’s a lovely, warm, yet breezy NYC summer day, you’re in a well known boutique on the east side of the city, you’re sipping on a refreshing caipirinha drink, while you shop for a swimsuit for your upcoming vacation, right next to you is a beautiful model showcasing various swimwear pieces from a new line made in Brazil, and there are several people ready to assist you in picking out the perfect swim suit…sound far fetched? Well that’s exactly what happened at the event Xcluzv Lifestyle Brands hosted at Linda’s Bra Salon in Murray Hill.

From the sidewalk I was already loving the store, it was brightly lit with lovely underwear, lingerie and swimwear on display. The interior had a “modern boudoir” feeling, with Continue Reading
