Get Stuff We Love
We love having fun with fashion ... and love the convenience of shopping online even more. That's why TODAY.com is picking the brains of some industry experts to find out where they score their favorite items online. This time, Lilliana Vazquez chatted with the adorable Robin Beck-Nazzaro from O, The Oprah Magazine.
Name: Robin Beck-Nazzaro
Title: Fashion market and accessories director, O, The Oprah Magazine
1. Describe your personal style in 5 words or less.
Classic, easy ... less is more!
2. Who's your celebrity style crush and why?
I love Solange Knowles! Her style is bold and adventurous and she really knows how to wear prints and bright colors. She just owns it! Most of all, she understands proportions (where a item should hit or fall on the body).
3. How often do you shop online?
Often. I would say about 50 percent of my apparel and accessories purchases are online.
4. What is your best tip for a successful online shopping experience?
Do your research! I like to shop around before I buy. I always get a general sense of the cut and sizing of the brand before I purchase.
5. What is your favorite "under-the-radar" shopping website?
One of my favorites is A Common Space.
6. What makes these websites so special?
If you like Zara, you will love A Common Space. The site's assortment is a mix of trend-driven items (clothing, outerwear and accessories) starting at $25. I love the Style Edit feature: It's a mix of modern styled "looks" and nice photography.
7. What is the last item you bought on this site?
A Sadie Stripes dress.
