I was asked recently on a video shoot who influenced me in fashion growing up. I had to think about this for a bit, I don't really have one influencer, I combine so many styles into my personal look. Then As I thought, besides Audrey Hepburn and my dear grandmothers, Ann Margaret from Bye Bye Birdie popped into my head. When my sister and I were younger, my mom would always put on classic movies for us to watch. From West Side Story to Gone with the Wind, we would sit and watch over and over. Bye Bye Birdie was one of our favorites, we would sing all the songs and reenact scenes like Ann Margaret slipping on her cuffed denim jeans, oversized sweater and fluffy slippers. There are so many styles from the movie to love just one, from the pink cropped ruffle top to the Russian dance scene, each a piece I would adore wearing.
