Member Matea is a law student in Croatia, obsessed with fashion. Find out why she wants to move to Iceland and more about her personal style!
Tell us about yourself!
Hi Polyvore people! My name is Matea. I`m 22 years old and a full-time law student who is obsessed with fashion and cool clothes. I’m an easy-going person who gets along well with everyone. I enjoy being around different types of people and I always like to challenge myself to improve at everything I do.
Where do you live, and what trends are big there?
This might sound weird, but currently, I live at three different addresses, one in Zagreb, one in Sesvete and one in Garešnica. My family owns two apartments and a house so I`m constantly changing my place of residence. Fall trends in Croatia are ankle booties, long scarves, cardigans, skinny jeans, Timberland boots, Isabel Marant sneakers, hats and collar necklaces.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do like about that brand?
Marni, Chloe and Proenza Schouler are my all-time favorite brands! But I’m also in love with my fashion icon Natasha Goldenberg's line, TzipporahNG. Marni always has cool and interesting prints, Chloe has elegant and sophisticated clothing, and Proenza Schouler great bags, clothes and accessories.
Which celebrity has great style? What do you like about his or her style?
Natasha Goldenberg is a major style icon of mine. I personally am a HUGE fan of this gorgeous Russian! I admire her taste, her style and her ability to dress in a fashionable and chic way. I love how she can go from loose fitting clothes in muted colors to tailored pieces in bright fabrics. Nickelson Wooster, the alpha male of American street style, also has great taste. His hair, cleanly trimmed mustache, neat beard and clothing give him a handsome look that demands respect.
What are your personal aspirations/goals?
My biggest wish for a long time now has been to move to Iceland. I don't quite know when this obsession with Iceland started, but I do know I want to live there. With this unique destination that offers breathtaking landscape and a vibrant culture, who wouldn't like to live there? I decided to pursue a career in law so I hope one day, I will have the opportunity to improve the lives of others. But also I would like to travel more, learn to speak Portuguese and Russian, meet cool/interesting people and be a fashion stylist!
