Real People, Real Style: Natty Style

In my 20-something years of life, I have learned that positive reinforcement is the best way to motivate people.  So, instead of just making fun of the fashion f*ck ups, I’ve decided to praise those of you who are making the world a prettier place… one outfit at a time.

We found this blonde bombshell right here in Manhattan.


Name: Natalie Decleve

Occupation: PR and Events Manager, Kiki De Montparnasse

Hometown: Palo Alto, CA

Wearing: dress- 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent, bag- vintage Dior (remember what I told you about vintage bags being cool?), shoes- Michael Kors Collection (sorry, can’t really see them, but they were divine), bangle- Forever 21, necklace- vintage, ring- rando no name designer from a boutique in Hoboken

If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and your bag was only big enough for 3 items, what would they be: My super soft and slouchy Inhabit cashmere sweater (hey you didn’t say it was a tropical island…), my subscription to Bazaar (can I do that?), a box of French macaroons.

Favorite beauty product: L’artisan Parfumeur, Poivre Piquant perfume

Style icon: Kate Moss

This summer, I can’t wait to wear: my bright turquoise Calypso linen mu-mu and destroyed denim (not together, obvi!)

Style tip for all the fashion degenerates: If you don’t feel confident wearing it, don’t.

Best splurge (it was worth every penny): Balenciaga motorcycle bag in grey –  the older it gets, the cooler it looks.

Trend you’d like to see die: One shouldered anything – why is it still happening?! WHY?! Oh- and Marc Jacobs. Just in general. Like I say after every season’s show: The Emperor’s New Clothes…

Currently coveting: Miu Miu Nappa bag in nude leather… ahh I’m obsessed!

And we are obsessed with you, Ms. Decleve.  Well done.
