Talking Fashion, PR, and Confidence
October 20, 2016
We spent the day with PR Guru and Mega Babe, Michaela Foti to get the inside scoop on how she styles her lingerie for fall. Classic, trendy and with a bit of edge Michaela incorporated the newly released Larissa Kate Lace Halter Bra into her everyday lifestyle.
HOW DO YOU INCORPORATE LINGERIE INTO YOUR DAY-TO-DAY LIFESTYLE?
“I am loving the “lingerie-as-everyday-wear” trend. Perhaps it began with the Kardashians (like most things), but I’m a fan, therefore working to smoothly transition the trend into my wardrobe.”
IN YOUR OPINION WHAT IS A STATEMENT PIECE THIS FALL?
“Definitely belts, belts of all shapes and sizes. Styling them with my lingerie as a way to accent my waistline.”
AT LARISSA KATE, STRONG, EMPOWERED WOMEN LIKE YOU INSPIRE US. WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
“Each day I am empowered by challenges. When challenges arise in my life, it is up to me to make a decision, and do it with great certainty and confidence. This mindset has translated to my personal life shaping me into a strong, powerful, confident woman who has learned not to take things too seriously. If you make a mistake or make a fool out of yourself, what else is there to do besides embrace it?”
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO POWER OUTFIT?
“My power outfit a.k.a. my everyday uniform (ask anyone) is a LBD. As icing on the cake, I feel even more confident with a matching set of lingerie on under my LBD. It's an inside secret you have with yourself empowering you throughout the day.”
DO YOU HAVE A STYLE ICON? WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR OUTFIT INSPIRATION?
“I am my own style icon. I get my outfit inspiration from Tumblr and Pinterest.”
“ Wear whatever you want. Be whoever you want to be.
Be your own style icon. ”
WE HEARD YOU'RE PASSIONATE ABOUT MAKEUP, WHAT IS YOUR BEST BEAUTY TIP?
“Always carry translucent powder and dry shampoo with you at all times. You never know who you’re going to meet.”
WHAT HAS WORKING IN PR TAUGHT YOU?
“PR is certainly an industry where you learn something new each day. However, some things that really stuck with me are, don’t be afraid of rejection, take risks, make bold mistakes, trust yourself, and have confidence.”
