Ruxandra Ioana’s Got The FashionTV Style! | Competition Winner
She’s eclectic, she’s cool, and she’s this week’s FashionTV Style Instagram competition winner! FashionTV caught up with ‘From Brussels, With Love’ blogger Ruxandra Ioana for some style tips and essential fashion chat.
One Minute With Ruxandra
How would you describe your style?
I see my style as being different. I always experiment all sorts of trends, so you can never get bored of my looks.
Where do you like to shop?
I shop everywhere from flea markets to high luxury stores. For me it's not about the brand, it's about the final “product,” the look you create when combining different garments. As they say, “You can buy fashion, but you can't buy style.”
Are you a designer or a high street kind of girl?
I would say a bit of both. I like sometimes to create or remodel clothes, but I don't always have time.
Where do you look to for your fashion inspiration?
Everywhere. Having my blog 'From Brussels, With Love' for quite a while now, I try to always bring something new to the stage, so everything inspires me from fashion magazines to people on the streets and of course on the internet: like Pinterest or other blogs.
What is your favorite wardrobe piece this summer?
It has to be my new addition to the closet, a breathtaking Alexander McQueen Demanta clutch.
If you were trapped on a desert island what would be your 3 essential fashion items?
I think I can survive with a pair of “Loubis” [Christian Laboutins], a BCBG MaxAzria dress and a McQueen clutch.
Do you have a style icon?
Through the years, I've come to realize that Rihanna's style is my favorite, so yes, I nominate her as my style icon.
What is going to be trending for Fall 2013-14?
There are quite a few awesome trends for the next season, so I cannot wait for fall to try out new trends. I know that leathery knee high boots are going to be hot. Also, soft and delicate fibers like mohair will totally smooth out your cold season outfit. The grunge look is still going to be trending. And speaking of masculine vibes, I know for a fact that tomboy/retro style is taking a lead this fall.
