I love Anne LakeCLICK HERE-she is the epitome of elegance! So I interviewed her.
Why did you start blogging?
I was a slow starter! I began blogging so that I could gain more insights into social media for my advertising agency. I also felt that there was an opening for a blog with a reflective quality about living and style, that wasn't purchase-based. But it has quickly become an avenue to so much more--great new friendships, most of all.
You have such style, some people would die to pair all of the color, jewelry and accessories. Where did you learn it? What is your inspiration?
What a lovely compliment! I have lots of inspiration, some of it classic, others more avante-garde. I adore Daphne Guinness, who is a true English eccentric and original. In the sense of just plain instinctive great taste, Lee Radziwill is unbeatable. From age 20 to her mid-70's now, she remains simple and elegant. I am also very into retro Brit looks of the twenties and thirties, sort of the White Mischief set. Jewels-wise, it has to be the Duchess of Windsor.
What is your idea of a dream day/weekend?
No phones...just my husband and me sailing together...some great champers in a paper cup...lots of sun and wind...a crabcake...Roxy Music playing...a blue RL swimsuit and a white boys oxford, wrinkled with sleeves rolled up...Topsiders...white denim shorts for later...
What do you think of mean girls and social climbers?
I don't think I know any mean girls anymore! As an eternal optimist and Pollyanna, I'd like to think they just haven't evolved yet, or had enough bumps on the road to know better. And as for social climbers--you're my fave!
Isn't she adorable?
