This week's Keeping it Fresh is brought to you by Mitchell Hall.
How long have you been in business?
What outfit do you own that makes you feel invincible?
Anything that fits. My style has evolved since I'm older and wiser. My confidence comes from within not from an outfit. If I'm comfortable and relaxed I feel invincible. A few years ago after gaining 40+ pounds I donated my entire wardrobe to Housing Works. I started fresh with the basics. A grey suit, navy blazer, grey pants. I've since lost most of the weight but I'm no longer altered by an outfit.
What is the biggest fashion faux pas you've made?
Since I dress conservative - my favorite colors are navy blue, black and different shades of gray I rarely make a fashion faux pas. The biggest one I remember was a Halloween costume party. The invitation said must wear costume. I followed instructions (I hate costumes) and wore a costume. Most of the other guests were not wearing costumes. I felt uncomfortable so I went home and changed, came back and enjoyed the party.
What celebrity is your style doppleganger?
Giorgio Armani. I've been wearing Armani suits and clothes since the 80's. I always feel relaxed yet luxurious in Armani. Understated elegance, simplicity and comfort. His favorite work outfit is also mine. A navy blue jacket and grey pants. I think he looks great at 78.
Best fashion advice?
Be yourself, be comfortable, keep it simple. When in doubt dress conservative. Classic and traditional never go out of style and always looks professional.
