Girls who inspire: Nicole of Frankie Hearts Fashion

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

I am so excited to feature one of the sweetest fashion bloggers around. Nicole of Frankie Hearts Fashion {another Cali girl!} is so chic, adorable & genuine. Learn a little bit about her here & be sure to stop by her blog, too!

name & age:
Nicole, 29

Agoura Hills, CA

current home:
Los Angeles, CA

meaning behind my blog name:
I'm known to be the "Frank" one in my family (hard to imagine, I know), so my sister and mom eventually knighted me with the name "Frankie" and it just kind of stuck.

current job:
Below the Line Talent Agency. For those who have no idea what the heck that means...We rep people in the film and television industry who work behind the camera.

dream job:
hmm...there are so many things that I would love to do so it's hard to just pick one....but most of my dreams revolve around the fashion and food realm. (Bet you didn't see that one coming!)

if i could travel anywhere...:
St. Tropez with a side of Monaco

something unique about me:
I'm fluent in Spanish and I swear like a truck driver. Sometimes I swear while speaking Spanish. It's just as attractive as it sounds....Not.

i like to:
dig for vintage goodies, discover new restaurants, dance whenever possible, bake yummy treats, watch ridiculous chick flicks...

i watch:
I don't watch a ton of TV, but I do find time for Glee and sadly am a frequent viewer of the Kardashian cesspool. I know, I know. I should also mention that I would never turn down a showing of Pretty in Pink (I love duckie) or Can't Buy Me Love.

listening to:
Adele & Mumford and Sons on repeat

crushing on:
I have serious lady crushes on Abbey Lee Kershaw and Rachel Bilson. And I would definitely enjoy some alone time with Bradley Cooper. Is that too much to ask?

5 things that inspire me :
1. My Husband & Family
2. Bold Jewelry
3. Architecture
4. Food
5. Jenna Lyons

favorite nail polish:
I have so many but right now I'm really into Essie 'E-Nuff is E-Nuff'

favorite perfume:
Ebba "Miss Marisa"

who or what inspires your style?
so many things inspire my style...interiors, flowers, books, magazines, other bloggers, SHOES (sometimes the right pair of shoes can inspire an entire outfit) and old movies to name a few. My mom always used to make my sister and I watch old Shirley Temple, Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor movies and till this day I am absolutely fascinated with the fashion.

what are 3-5 pieces you think every girl should own? 1. A classic pair of black heels that can take you from day to night.
2. Set of gold bangles
3. A neutral cardigan
4. White Tee
5. Signature Scent - Having a signature scent/perfume can be just as important as owning a pair of jeans.  

what are your favorite online stores?
Ssense, Net-a-porter, Asos, Topshop, Shopbop

what is your "go to" outfit (if you have one)?
Maxi skirt and a slouchy sweater or Button up blouse and a pair of jeans.

favorite jeans:
I loooove Blank Denim and Textile by Elizabeth & James.

who are your favorite designers?
Lanvin, YSL, and Alexander Wang to name a few. 

favorite store to buy accessories:
It all depends. If I buy classic accessories that will last me season after season then I will go to Barney's or Saks. For more novelty and fun items that will take me through a single season I'll go to Forever 21 or H&M.

favorite handbag:
My vintage Judith Leiber snakeskin clutch
