Meet Sandy and her fun, fearless fashionista side aka Marley Simone. I’m definitely a fan of her super versatile style! Whether she’s working a vintage glamour vibe or a modern day look, Sandy of Marley Simone has the muse title in the bag!
How would you describe your personal style?
I love fashion and I have a great appreciation for many styles. My style is constantly evolving. It’s difficult to say what my own personal style is since it changes so much. It literally changes from day to day and season to season. I like to take bits and pieces of styles and trends that I love and make it my own. In the end, I do gravitate towards styles that are classy and feminine, but is a bit edgy.
Do you have any style icons that you look up to?
I have a few modern day muses that I admire. I love Gwen Stefani. She does feminine and edge so well. She strikes the perfect balance between all things I love. It doesn’t matter how tattered and rough her attire is, she finds away to make it look soft and pretty. I really appreciate her interpretation of fashion.
You developed an alter ego that has a fearless approach to fashion. Can you share a bit more about Marley Simone? Does this alter ego influence your daily fashion choices?
MARLEY SIMONE is me; she’s just my other self. She’s fun, daring, brave, fearless, and has a lot of edge and feistiness towards her. She definitely comes through in my daily fashion choices because she is fashion. If it weren’t for her, I would be very conservative and demure with absolutely no edge. #boring #yawn Every gal needs edge and spice!
In addition to blogging, you also do personal styling and wardrobe services. What’s your best piece of advice to give to those who may be lost on their journey to find their true style?
True style comes from within. You have to find yourself, know yourself and love yourself. Fashion isn’t all that complicated, but I think people get lost because they aim to be and do things because they see other people doing it. You have to do you. Do your own thing. It’s not that serious. Play around. Do what makes you happy and do what you like. If you feel good, look good doing it by wearing what you love and dressing for your body type.
What are you usually wearing when you feel like you’re looking your best?
To feel like I’m looking my best, I must have great hair, perfectly manicured nails, and glowing skin. From there, it’s depends on the occasion.
What are you looking forward to wearing this summer?
I don’t want to be too serious this summer. I’m planning to be abroad this summer so comfort and ease is my motto. Fun ripped denim shorts…sounds so cliché, predictable, or common, but denim has made a huge come back and it’s just always my favorite thing to wear in the summer time. I’m also going to be mixing a lot of downtown meets uptown styles.
