What is your name, age, and where are you from?
My name is Nicolette Ellis. I’m 18 years old and I’m from MD.
Tell us a little about yourself and what sparked your interest in fashion.
I live in NY currently and go to a performing arts school. What sparked my interest was theater class in high school. I saw people look way different than what I was used to. So I thought, since I could express my self through acting, I can do it through my style also.
Describe your style in 3 words.
Imaginative, Clever, Versatile
Who is your personal style icon?
Rihanna. I absolutely love her style, she can switch up and do anything and it make it look good!
What influences your style when you’re creating an outfit?
My mood. It depends on what I’m feeling that day to create something amazing or something simple, but still with a twist of me.
Whats been your biggest investment piece thus far?
Biggest Investment? Oh gosh, I don’t spend that much money on pieces of clothing. I would say my cheetah print rain coat. I absolutely adore it, and it was worth every penny.
What’s one fashion piece that you hope to one day to call your own?
Hard question, I want them all! But hand jewelry, I live for those. They go with almost everything.
If you could time travel back to any time era and explore the fashion scene, what would it be?
The 60’s. Absolutely love the dresses, accessories, blouses. Just everything! That time period was amazing.
What items are consisted in your “favorite” Summer outfit?
My favorite summer outfit would be a jersey of any kind, I don’t discriminate, lol. A colorful skirt, shoulder bag, a watch, shades to place on the jersey and either sandals, or some oxfords.
Where do you shop?
THRIFT! Everything thrift. I buy my clothes at any thrift shop, don’t deny any of them, they might have exactly what you’re looking for or something uncommon! I buy my shoes at any store, except Forever 21. Not my cup of tea. But I would buy plain shirts from there because they are cheap. But thrift, thrift, thrift. I’m addicted.
What advice or style tips do you have for fashionistas out there?
Don’t copy anybody, be yourself. If you think it looks great, be confident; it doesn’t hurt. And patterns are your best friend :).
Where can we keep up with you and see more of your fashion sense?
I post my outfits on IG/TUMBLR and post how to make certain clothes on VINE.
Talk to me, any questions or anything!
Is there anything else that you would like us to know about you?
I am an actress. I hope to not only impact people with my creative fashion sense, but my creative mind also. Thank you!
