LBT: Who is your style icon?
BTB: I love Kate Moss! She is very rock-n-roll and edgy and sexy.
LBT: Yes. I’m a big fan of hers. Anybody else?
BTB: And I love Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast.
LTB: Okay. Both really good ones. My new question, what television show has the best wardrobe?
BTB: Gossip girl. I feel like that is such an easy answer for that.
LBT: I’ve been expecting a lot of Mad Men. The most crave worthy wardrobe is Mad Men and Gossip Girl. Do you consider yourself a shopper?
BTB: I have a bit of a problem. Haha.
LBT: I do write articles about shopping addiction. Haha.
BTB: Maybe I will have to check those out. Haha.
LBT: I used to be a pretty serious shopper myself but now I’m on the wagon.
BTB: My favorite thing is tracking down things that have the style elements I want but, finding them at vintage stores or some really cool consignment shops in Soho. Really unique and interesting places.
LBT: Really? Do you have a favorite consignment shop?
BTB: I like one in Chelsea called Fisch for the Hip. It has a lot of designer labels and some are a couple of years old but they are still cool.
LBT: Good I will have to look that up. I like sharing an interesting brand or a new website. Do you have any interesting websites that you shop from?
BTB: I like Planet Blue. They have a very LA girl kind of style.
LBT: Do you like the west coast style over the east?
BTB: No. I’m definitely a New Yorker. All black. And of course I love the Outnet.com and any discounted designer sites.
LBT: Tell me about your necklace?
BTB: My necklace is just a pearl necklace that I got as a gift. The charm is a flying fish that my dad got it for me when he first visited Bermuda and we ended up living there for a few years. So its very near and dear to my heart.
LBT: Awh that is so nice. Now tell me the name of your website because you are a part time jewelry designer as well?
BTB: I am a jewelry designer in my very little spare time. My website is named after my grandmother, we have the same middle name. Its Borbala Design www.borbaladesign.com
LBT: I will look forward to sharing that.
The last couple of weeks I’ve met some really nice people, some had a lot to say about fashion while others did not. No matter, their personal style was fantastic all around and my new friend A was no different. Super nice gal with a distinct and lovely sense of style and a jewerly designer to boot. It was my lucky interview day today. Thank you A for sharing your stories with me and I look forward to sharing more on your jewelry line next week. Stay tuned.~LadyBowTie
