NAME: ABBYGAIL G. HALDERMAN
OCCUPATION: REGISTERED NURSE
Whenever I would see Abbygail, I couldn’t help but notice her great fashion sense. For such a young person, she seemed to light up the room, with her bubbly personality and her attire to match. Embracing the look and feel of the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s, as well as various cultures, and more; Abbygail never ceases to amaze me with her bold fashion statements! This girl is absolutely fearless! I am delighted to have her as one of my G-Starz! Here is what Abbygail had to say in a candid interview.
MiMi: When you were growing up, were you always stylish?
Abbygail: That is what my mother tells me! She always dressed me up with hats, purses, frilly socks, sun glasses, the works! She says she may have created a monster!
MiMi: How would you define your sense of style?
Abbygail: Grandma chic. I love taking vintage items/thrift store finds and mixing them with current trends for my own vintage look. I also like incorporating the look and feel of other cultures into my everyday wear.
MiMi: I have seen some of the amazing outfits you wear. For a young person, you at times, embrace eras of the past with regards to your style. What era do you like best, and why?
Abbygail: That is hard to narrow down, I love them all! I’d say 50’s-60’s. The trends were modest yet chic, always looking high quality; plus, I like wearing hats, glove, and coats.
MiMi: I have heard the term fashionista. Can you define what that means? Do you consider yourself a fashionista?
Abbygail: I don’t know about that, I just try to have fun with my clothing. I think it means: trying new things…making up outfits others wouldn’t think of, or dare to wear. It involves a level of creativity and confidence. Don’t be afraid to wear something, as long as you feel great in it.
MiMi: Who do you admire in regards to fashion and why?
Abbygail: Sophia Loren-gorgeous/over the top. Audrey Hepburn-elegant, classic and GiGi Hadid-fresh, new, not afraid to mix up trends; always rocks it with confidence.
MiMi: Thank you so much Abbygail for sharing your thoughts about fashion, and I look forward to seeing what you’ll be wearing next.
Abbygail: It’s always a mystery.
ABBYGAIL ON FASHION:
Alot of the inspiration comes from the women in my life. Mom: bold, bright colors and patterns. Aunt Emily: neutrals, classic, elegant. Aunt Julie: mixing patterns, and styles and modest. Aunt April: always vintage. Aunt Stacy: well put together and always coordinating. Izzy and Makayla: They tell me if my look is just right or if I went too far and it’s just too crazy!
Most of my clothes are hand me downs, or thrift store finds. I like this, because most of the items people give me, I wouldn’t have picked myself, so taking those with my own personal collection, I always end up with a new outfit.
