This week’s Girl of the Week is the lovely CHRISTINE NGUYEN. When I first met Christine, I couldn’t help but notice her incredible sense of style. Every time I run into her, she always looks so well-put together. Whether she is at work or going for a night out on the town, this girl knows how to work it! With a Communications and Publishing degree, Christine hopes to pursue a career as a buyer or publicist. In the meantime, she keeps herself busy by running the crazy/beautiful madhouse that is Zara. So if she looks familiar, now you know why. A few weeks ago when the Style Spy crew stopped in to shop, we took one look at Christine’s fabulous outfit and knew she had to be featured. Ladies, meet Christine.
Wearing…Zara blazer + dress, H&M men’s leather belt, Michael Kors men’s gold watch, Tiffany rings, and Matt Bernson flat sandals.
My personal style…It usually depends on my mood and I hate spending time in the morning getting ready so I’ll grab the first things I can reach. I love chic elegance, androgyny and a bohemian vibe so I guess it’s somewhere in between.
I feel most comfortable in…A slouchy tee, destroyed skinnies, and an oversized shirt
Girl crushes…Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller, Kate Bosworth, MK+Ashley, Erin Wasson & Kate Moss.
Industry Favourites…Giovanna Battaglia, Christine Centenera, Melanie Huynh, Emmanuelle Alt & Kate Lanphear.
Shopping wish list…Isabel Marant Bardu Boots, Proenza Schouler PS1, and although it’s a tad early, the gorgeous cropped shearling jacket from Burberry Prorsum F/W 2010.
The Beauty Gods have blessed me with…Clinique Pore Minimizer (this does wonders!), NARS bronzing blush duo, and Bobbi Brown soothing face tonic.
Favourite shops…Kitson, Intermix, Shopbop, Misch, One of a Few, Jonathan + Olivia and of course Zara.
Most recent purchase…Vanessa Bruno bag + TOMS shoes (perfect slip-ons for the summer).
Wardrobe essentials…Alexander Wang tanks+tees, skinnies (love Current/Elliot Jeggings), leather motorcycle jacket, and flats to change into after a day in heels.
Fashion pet peeves…Anything ill-fitting (I’ve seen it at its very worst, cutting people out of dresses and bustiers, bra-less and all. Thank you Zara!)
One thing every girl should have…A beautiful bag & shoes.
Can’t live without…Coffee, my Blackberry and Macbook.
