Eccentrics Team Style: Meet Allie

Eccentrics Boutique team style: Allie

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose."

How does your job influence your personal style?  
Working at Eccentrics has definitely influenced and changed my style in some ways. I like dressing up more and wearing heals to work. 

What is your personal style?
I would say that my personal style is mainly casual, simple outfits. I love fall clothes, so whenever I get the chance, I wear sweaters, jeans, and booties. I don’t wear accessories that much, but when I do, its usually a simple necklace or some stud earrings. I like to feel comfortable in what I’m wearing so that I’m confident the whole day.

Go-to fashion rule or styling trick?
Don’t say you hate how something looks until you try it on. Sometimes you can be surprised when you try it on!

Favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of my job is coming up with the outfits for the mannequins. I also love how Lauren lets me be creative with rearranging and organizing the store. It doesn't even feel like I’m working somethings.

One thing in your closet you could not live without?
My go-to item in my closet would either have to be my high-waisted jeans. I wear them almost every day! And my Kate Spade rain boots.

What is your life motto?
This quote by Jim Elliot has always stuck out to me: "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose."

It just reminds me that living for Christ will never leave me wanting for more, and nothing in this life can fill me with purpose and joy like He does. 

Do you have a beauty secret you wish to share?
If you put a drop of lavender essential oil in you mascara tube, it will make you eyelashes grow longer and stay healthy.

What is one thing no one would believe to be true about you?
Some people are surprised when I tell them that I play violin. Or that Allie is just my nickname and it’s short for Alexandra.

These are the days we wake up for. The reason we endure winter is for the glimpse of spring. Once it's here, we can take a deep breath and stretch our weary souls in the sunshine. Our bundles of warm and fuzzy are replaced with breezy flowy fabrics and delicate details. The Free People Spring 2018 Collection does not disappoint.
