A few weeks ago I was sent a set of questions to answer for Candy Web’s Style Files, wasn’t really sure what this was but I was like what the hey.
Name: Marie Veronique “Ericke” Tan
Hometown: Ilocos Norte
How would you describe your style?
Eclectic, like I always say I have multiple personalities when it comes to style.
Where do you usually shop for clothes?
, or just raid my mom’s closet
Who’s your favorite fashion designer?
Those I can NEVER afford-Marc Jacobs, Viviene Westwood
, Alexander Mcqueen
and Karl Lagerfeld
What’s one thing that’s always part of your outfit?
Multiple bracelets, or bangles, I’d feel naked without them.
Who/what is your inspiration?
Everything under the sun. I get inspired easily, it can be the color, the shape or the texture of something. My inspiration can be from a trip or even from a lady bug
Who’s your favorite style icon?
It’s so cliche but the Olsen Twins
, Nicole Ritchie, Edie Sedgewick and the Harajuku boys and girls.
What influenced your style?
I was my mom’s little chinadoll as a kid, she always dressed me up. The moment I got out of her womb she already got me a pair of denim underpants. I guess I never got over that.
What’s your closet’s color palette?
My goal is to have every color of the rainbow! I like to have a piece of everything in every color I can think of, you never know when you’re going to need a shade of something. I do think I own more whites, grays and blues tho.
What’s one thing you’ll never be caught wearing?
I can never say I’d never be caught wearing something because I get bored easily, I like experimenting with looks.
Give 3 things that never go out of style.
a)designer sling bags
b)you can never have too many white shirts c)a positive attitude with a side of confidence
What trend from the past would you like to make a comeback?
The complete flapper look, yes….with the feathered headgear.
Do you own something vintage from your mom/lola? What is it and how old?
I own too much hand me downs from my mom and lola. I’m usually a size 6, but I force my mom to give me the size 7′s she never wears anymore. I have designer sling bags my mom bought when she was in college. I have no idea how old the stuff I inherited from my lola are, like this old gucci clutch that used to be a slingbag, it looks pretty ancient.
