Helen Hoppock on Fashion
What has been your biggest fashion faux-pas?
Truly believing that Northface fleeces and jackets were ‘in’ while living in the northwest … so sad.
If you could only shop at one store, which would it be?
Anthropology; they have great basics, are always flirty styles that are trendy but not overkill.
If you could change one thing about your closet, what would it be?
More pairs of jeans, a girl can never have too many jeans. I don’t have time to shop right now and I just droll over all the jeans my friends collect, especially skinny ones!
Survival of the fittest: What is one item in your closet that you will never get rid of?
If you were given the opportunity to have a famous designer revamp your entire wardrobe, who would you choose?
Betsey Johnson, she was the first designer I ‘discovered’ at a young age and you can always count on her for unique feminine pieces.
Name an actor/singer/celebrity whose wardrobe you admire the most.
It's generic but I do love Sienna Miller's wardrobe. She just has it and I respect the way she is iconic in her tremendous influence on fashion, that girl exercises power just by walking down the street. I also love Cameron Diaz, she always looks good, wears what fits her body and does a classy flirty thing without trying too hard.
What are your best and worst fashion purchases?
Best: Designer clothing and shoes from Buenos Aires designers (Jazmin Chebar, Maria Cher, anything from Tienda Tres, or Rapsodia and SOFI MARTIRE shoes), they are all beautiful and no one else has them. Worst: Traditional Aopoi shirts for women from Paraguay. Very cool traditionally but not to be worn in public.
Who makes your favorite pair of jeans? Shoes? Dress or Suit?
Rapsodia jeans, Sofi martire shoes and dresses: NY-based designer Marni
If you had to describe your personal style in one word, what would it be?
If you could bring back any fashion trend, what would it be?
Carrying plastic GAP bags like we used to in the 7th grade … just kidding .. but can you believe we all actually did that and can someone please tell me why?
Helen’s are great for an everyday purse that will match with everything.
