Member Spotlight: Stylejournals

Tell us about yourself.
Hello! My name is Angeline Williams and I am a college professor and part-time stylist! Since I work at a university, I have to adhere to a certain dress code. However, I implement my own style in everything I wear. Because I live in Chicago, a typical style day (when I am not in the classroom) for me would be designer boots, a big wool sweater, leather pants and a big winter coat! In my spare time I host style parties and style seminars for my clients.
Where do you live, and what trends are big there?
As previously stated I live in Chicago, IL, and the trends are weather motivated. In the winter, Chicagoans wear boots, stylish coats and sweaters. In the summertime, however, we like to be comfortable, but very fashion-forward.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
I love ALEXANDER WANG!!! His designs embody everything the downtown Chicago woman is. His designs are casual and cool with a little bit of edgy. I feel razor sharp when I wear his clothes or carry his purses! Did I say I love Alexander Wang??!!
Which celebrity do you think has great style and why?
My style icon is Victoria Beckham! I love her style because she sticks with what works for her. She is a minimalist with a sense of adventure. She is constantly evolving but never forgets her style center: simplicity!
What are your personal aspirations/goals?
My personal aspirations are to move to NYC, so that I can take my passion to the next level and truly live out my dream of working in the fashion industry full-time. I visit New York at least two times a year so that I can get unique things for my clients and do some shopping for myself. I would love to be there permanently!
How has Polyvore affected your life?
Polyvore is my new addiction! Polyvore has really enhanced my style. It has also allowed me to help my clients create new brands for themselves. I get inspiration and ideas from the great sets of the various members that I follow.
Describe your personal sense of style.
My personal sense of style is trendy-classic. I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but that's my style. I take a classic look and then mix in the current trend so that I can be fashion forward while staying true to my style character and my creative edge.
How often do you sign on and what is the first thing you do when you sign on?
I sign onto Polyvore at least twice a day and I usually go to my activities page to see how many people have viewed my sets. I also go to Top Stories so that I can check out the featured sets.
Got any requests for the Polyvore team?
I think it would be great to have a Polyvore convention for members! It would be great to meet the creative people behind the sets that we see every day. There could be seminars about the latest trends, maybe some vendors so that we can buy some great merchandise, contests and great speakers from the fashion industry so that we can pick their brains! It should be an annual event, and in NYC, of course!
