Haley interviews Taylor Armstrong (part one)
by haley sherif
You may know Taylor Armstrong from the popular reality show, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, however she’s much more than a television star. This last year may have been very tumultuous for her, but she’s managed to come out on top better than ever. With a new bestseller, Hiding from Reality, in stores now and a fantastic new job as a board member for MyStylistClub.com, she’s conveyed a certain style that only a woman with true inner chicness could exert. I had the fantastic opportunity to interview Taylor. In part one she dishes on her daily dress code, her involvement with My Stylist Club, and more!
HS: How would you describe your style in a sentence?
TA: Classic with an edge.
HS: What is your dress code like on a day to day basis?
TA: For everyday I choose a variety of denim with a top to fit the occasion (silk blouse for a lunch, t-shirt with a blazer for a meeting, a lightweight sweater to spend the day with my little girl.) I like to show my personality with my accessories. I love beaded bracelets, big turquoise rings and unique pieces that feel personal.
HS: How has your style evolved over the years?
TA: As I have grown more self confident, I chose things that make me feel like “me.” There is something beautiful about coming into your own from a style perspective. I don’t over think it, I don’t plan what I am going to wear in advance. In the moment, I put on what I feel confident in and walk out the door.
HS: Why did you decide to join the board of MyStylistClub.com?
TA: Like most women, I don’t have time to shop. I cannot tell you the last time I walked around a mall and just browsed the stores. I order many things on line and love the convenience of receiving items right to my door. I meet lots of women who tell me they just don’t know where to start when it comes to their wardrobe. Having a stylist is cost prohibitive and unless you live in a major city, it may be inaccessible as well. MyStylistClub.com provides the best of both worlds. You have a stylist there to help guide your wardrobe direction, to work with things you already have in your closet and add new pieces to round out your looks. And, you get it delivered right to your door.
HS: Can you tell us a little bit about the concept?
TA: Its so easy to get started. Log into www.MyStylistClub.com, sign up and set an appointment to Skype or have a phone call with your own personal stylist. During the consultation, they will learn your likes and dislikes, price preferences and sizes. They will ask questions to understand your fashion pitfalls and goals. Then, your stylist will personally select clothing and accessories to fit your lifestyle. You receive your first shipment right to your door. Try it on, keep what you like and send back the rest.
