What is your favorite fashion quote?

“Clothes are not going to change the world, the women who wear them will.” -Anne Klein

How would you describe your style?

I grew up experimenting and having fun with my clothes since my mother was a fashion designer and always stimulated me to be creative. With the years, I started to notice the subtle ways women suffer prejudice in the academic and professional spheres. I couldn’t stand the idea that we have to shrink ourselves to be taken seriously. That’s when I started obsessing with pink and wearing it almost like a protest sign. I believe that you can wear pink from head to toe and still be the smartest person in the room, and that’s what my style and Instagram are all about. 

What do you believe is the essential fashion accessory you can’t do without?

Ballerina flats: I have every possible style in my closet, and always find room for more. They can be from Chanel covered in pearls, the classic Repetto ballerinas or Sophia Webster kitty flats. 

Name a favorite fashion house.

It may not be exactly a fashion house, but Kate Spade New York is my favorite brand. Their novelty handbags and all the cat-inspired flats are the best conversation starters. They always make me smile and never break my bank. 

What’s a fall look you are really into right now?

I am “obsessed” with puffy sleeves. They are perfect for a subtle girly touch, or a full Alice in Wonderland-inspired outfit. I’m up for either option. Be extra. Do it for Marie Antoinette. 

If you could raid someone’s closet, who would that be? 

Definitely, Carrie Bradshaw. Even 20 years after Sex and the City, her outfits remain a fashion statement. 

What’s been a recent fashion indulgence? 

It’s not so recent, but I got black velvet Louboutins a couple of years ago that are super high and completely covered in colorful Swarovski crystals. It’s truly the cutest pair of shoes! 

I consider it my fashion indulgence because I have zero ability to walk in super high heels. To be honest, I can barely stand in then. Nevertheless, every time I open my closet and look at that shiny rainbow, my heart melts, so it was worth the investment! 

Name a fashion muse you just started following.

Paola Antonini will forever be my favorite fashion muse. If you haven’t heard of her, she is a Brazilian model that lost one of her legs in a car accident, and never let it stop her from pursuing her dreams as a fashion model and influencer. 

Who do you feel is the most stylish person in Miami?

Craig Robins, the CEO of Miami Design District. Besides his stylish outfits and witty Instagram posts, he is devoted to bringing art and businesses to Miami through Miami Design District, my favorite neighborhood in Miami and the background of 99.9 percent of my Instagram posts. 

Danella Urbay

What is your favorite fashion quote?

“Don’t be into trends, don’t let fashion own you. You decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.” -Gianni Versace 

How would you describe your style?

Mostly edgy, but very eclectic. The “tangled in my closet” kind of vibe, lol. 

What do you believe is the essential fashion accessory you can’t do without?

An over-sized men’s blazer. Try it, it’s a game changer!

Name a favorite fashion house.

Currently obsessed with Jacquemus.

What’s a fall look you are really into right now?

White boots, the trend is still going strong for fall and doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.

If you could raid someone’s closet, who would that be? 

Anna Dello Russo, I love her sense of style and how she’s not afraid to take risks.

What’s been a recent fashion indulgence? 

Shoes, shoes and more shoes! It’s always shoes!

How would you describe your style?

Classy, Chic & Elegant

Wow! I do not wear a lot of accessories, but I believe I can’t do anything without a nice bag and nice shoes.
