Fashion Tip Friday: Karenza Kailee

Friday, December 2, 2011

i got the chance to pick the brain of an amazing freelance wardrobe stylist a couple months ago and never had any down time to post, so here goes:

i met Kailee when we used to work together at this boba place and i always thought she had a unique and bold sense of style so it's not surprising to me AT ALL that she now styles for movies and photoshoots! i've been dying to know her secrets and now i can share them with you!



fashion tips and suggestions?
Try to clean out your closet every season- make it fun! Invite your friends over to have a closet makeover party. When shopping, buy with passion! Only buy it if you can't live without it. Go out of your way when traveling to find local clothing, things you can't find elsewhere. Make sure you have at least three different things in your closet that you can mix and match it with. And remember attitude is important too! Always put your best in everything that you do.

what inspires you? favorite designers, stylists?
The people that inspire me most are the ones out there doing what they love and thriving from that passion; they are changing the world. My favorite designers for shoes and accessories would have to be Marc by Marc, Sam Edelman, Chanel, Topshop, ASOS, F21, Dolce Vita, A. Wang, and All Saints just to name a few. To name some of my favorite celebrities with great style are Rachel Zoe, Irene Albright, Ashley and MK, Nicole Richie, and Gwen Stefani.

what made you want to become a stylist
I had always loved playing dress-up, and putting together outfits for my sisters and some of my friends so I thought why not make a career out of doing something you really love! I get paid to go shopping, it's a dream come true.

favorite set/model/styling event and why
It would have to be the second movie I did wardrobe for called "The Crumbles". I actually got to work with one of my really good friends, Teresa Michelle Lee. It was awesome. I even got to wardrobe the whole LA cast compared to my first movie I did. It was nice and such an awesome experience with everyone onset. The movie is actually coming out soon. Check out the IMDB for it and like them on facebook!

dream client!
My dream movie client would have to be either Johnny Depp or Audrey Tautou.

tips for the fall?
Winter jackets and lots of layering! Living in Cali., it's cold one minute in the morning and by afternoon it gets really warm sometimes so layering is a great way to dress.

stay tuned for my next post on what she wore to our little get together/interview! (FYI, she's really cute!)
