Carlais Erica Pyles (CEP), 22, born in Houston, Texas and now currently residing at Charlotte, North Carolina as a University Student is Latest Fashion Trends from a Fashion Girl – LC’s (LFTFFG) August Fashionista of the Month. She is here to share us great views of fashion and reality… Let’s hear what she have to say…
Lyndsay Cabildo (LC): What do you think is your great contribution in the world, or shall I say your achievements that will stand you out from ‘just a fashionista’ from the rest?
CEP: I always wear only what I absolutely love and feel comfortable in. Even if it’s not in style I personalize and modernize it so it’s updated but still my own, and this definitely helps me cut back on splurging on expensive pieces. Since I don’t want to stretch my budget or time, I rely on my talent to be innovative with everything I do and that gets me noticed. I wish the world could realize it’s not actually what you wear, but how you wear it, how much confidence it gives you, and whether or not you make the most of it! (That’s true fashionista there! – Ed.)
LC: Do you believe that Fashionistas doesn’t know about anything but looks and fashion?
CEP: TRUE fashionistas definitely realize that solely concerning yourself with looks and fashion will only get you so far and only so much respect! No matter what you do, you should always strive to better your mind, body, and spirit with knowledge outside of- but not necessarily unrelated to- the fashion industry.
LC: Is there anything that you want to point out in Fashion Industry or with other Fashion enthusiast that you agree or not agree with?
CEP: No, not necessarily.
LC: Who is your Favorite Fashion Icon? Why?
CEP: I am torn between Brigitte Bardot for her incredibly captivating s*x appeal and Rihanna’s ability to make anything that would typically seem outlandish or faddish look awesome and empowering! What can I say, I admire confident females…
LC: What do you think of Designer Clothes and Apparels?
CEP: I love, love, LOVE designer clothes as much as the next fashionista, but I do realize they are not necessary… At least not for a college student with a limited budget like me! You can always find a cheaper alternative.
LC: What about Charity vs Highly Expensive Girl Stuff, what’s your view about it?
CEP: Again if it looks great, it shouldn’t matter where it comes from! I’m not a snob as long as it’s in good condition and good quality!
LC: What was the most expensive fashion stuff you’ve ever bought?
CEP: A pair of black skinny jeans by Guess.
LC: What inspired you to be into Fashion?
CEP: I’ve always had an interest in fashion! Since I was in kindergarten I would make my own sketches of clothes I wish I could wear and read Seventeen magazine to see the clothing!
LC: What is your style? (Chic? Punk? Casual? Rugged?)… Why? What influenced your style?
CEP: I have an ecletic, amalgamated style which is a mix between glam, rocker, bohemian, and classic… probably because I’ve always had such diverse interests. Music and time has undoubtedly influenced my style.
LC: Any Great Dream or Fashion Dream or you want to achieve in the future?
CEP: I want to make a difference so I would LOVE to be a magazine editor or fashion journalist and just simultaneously contribute to the industry and the masses no matter what I’m doing.
