Tell us about yourself.
My name is Katie Perry, I am 26, and I am an accountant/cosmetologist/wife/mom. I would describe my everyday style as business-casual/chic with classically feminine pieces. I have to dress up for work every day, so I typically wear black with a bold print or bright-colored top and/or sweater. I absolutely love little leather jackets and trench coats; I have a bunch of them in a variety of colors and styles!
Where do you live, and what trends are big there?
I live in Southwest Virginia, but I am originally from New York. There are quite a few style trends where I live, mostly hipster and boho chic. Since I live in the South, there are a lot of people with country style, which includes a lot of cowboy boots and camouflage, which generally isn't my thing. My heart is truly in New York!
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do like about that brand?
I have too many favorites to name just one! I love the creativity in the McQueen, Louis Vuitton/Marc Jacobs/Marc by Marc Jacobs, Prada/Miu Miu and Dolce & Gabbana brands. Their ability to create clothing that doubles as art is amazing and every design is breathtaking. I would say my personal everyday style is similar to the classic designs of Diane von Fürstenberg, Carolina Herrera and Burberry. They create amazing pieces that can be worn everyday. I am obsessed with Burberry trenches; they are amazing!
Which celebrity do you think has great style and why?
There are so many celebrities with great style. I love Jessica Alba’s street style. She has such effortless style and everything she wears works perfectly together. Blake Lively has great style as well. I hear she styles herself too, which makes her style extra great!
How has Polyvore affected your life?
Polyvore has been an amazing outlet for me to express my creativity and explore fashion! I absolutely love fashion, and I wish I would have discovered this website earlier! I was going through a lot personally when I found this website, and it helped me to find something I truly love and enjoy doing!
Describe your personal sense of style.
I would say I have a classic style infused with bright colors and prints. I wear a lot of black, but it is always paired with a pop of color. I usually wear classically feminine clothes with a fabulous bright or printed shoe/sweater/shirt. My outfits are generally topped off with a fabulous trench or jacket. You can never have enough jackets!
Also, since I am a cosmetologist, a main part of my style stems from my hair and makeup. I change my hair color a lot. I don’t even know what my original hair color is anymore, but I love trying new colors and styles. Painted nails are always a must, and I am obsessed with gel nail polish! It’s truly amazing!
How would you describe your set style?
I’m not sure I have a certain set style per se because I do a little bit of everything, but one thing that all my sets have in common is fabulous clothes! Every piece of clothing and every accessory I use in my sets, I would wear in real life. I love bold looks and colors with mixed patterns!
How often do you sign on and what is the first thing you do when you sign on?
I try to sign on every day, but I am pretty busy with work and my family! The first thing I do when I sign on is find some great editorials or clothes to clip! I am really bad at checking messages and comments, so I am so sorry if I am late responding! But I love all of the support from my followers and Polyvore. Thank you all so much!
Anything else you would like us to know?
Despite my name being Katie Perry, I definitely can’t sing. People ask me that all the time, and they even sing Katy Perry’s songs to me or ask for my autograph. Sorry to disappoint, I’m not the famous Katy Perry! Although she does have great style!
