Tasha Moore

Tasha Moore

Today I’m meeting Tasha Moore in Paris.  Tasha is a runway model and founder of IAMFEMME.com.  I’m extremely inspired by Tasha’s international success and beautifully curated boutique.  Follow her @modeltashamoore and @iamfemmedotcom.  

Hello, It’s Ann.  It’s great to see you.  Can I interview your closet?

What’s your favorite T-Shirt? Where and why did you buy it?  My favorite t-shirt is my J’Adore tee by Casey Levan. I bought it from his online store.

Are you a sweater person or a sweatshirt person? Hoodies all day!

What did you wear on your last date? The Legacy Maxi Dress from Religion.

How did the date go? What did you do?  It sucked! But we went for drinks at this cool secret speakeasy tequila bar in Paris so the drinks made it tolerable until I could call an Uber and escape!

What do you like to drink while getting ready for a night out?  I’m a whiskey/bourbon gal, preferably Jack to start the night.

What music do you listen to while getting ready for a night out?  Lean On, on repeat- It always makes me want to dance. 

Where was the last place you traveled to?  Paris, right now!

What was the most important thing you packed?  The Angela Valentine Kereol Bucket Bag. I use it to carry my entire life- including my heels and IPad for castings.

What was the most non-essential thing you shouldn’t have packed but packed anyway?  My steamer.  I barely use it.

What rules if any did you have about getting dressed when you were young?  None, I always wore whatever I wanted. . .  unless of course my Mom made me change!

What is the first item of clothing you bought with your own money?  A Coach bag.

What is the biggest splurge or investment piece you purchased?  My Margiela boots.

Do you feel the investment has been worthwhile?  Yes because they are timeless.

What is your favorite fashion bargain? How much do you wear it?  My Gazelle Adidas, they don’t have them in the U.S. and they are the only sneakers I wear since I don’t really like sneakers. I got them for almost half the price.

Who was your style icon as a youngster?  Victoria Beckham- post Posh Spice, when she just married David. She was both edgy and chic and that’s totally my style.

Who is one of your style icons now? Honestly, I am my own style icon.  I love who I am and what I wear – I really own my style. That’s why opening IAMFEMME.com was so organic.

What do you wear when you work out?
 Black leggings and a tank top- nothing fancy. 

What do you wear to the grocery store?  I’m always busy so usually whatever outfit I’m already running around in. Sometimes I’m that girl in the grocery store in heels.  

What shoes do you wear when the weather is bad?  Combat boots.

What shoes do you wear when you want to show off?  Any of my numerous pair of Vince Camuto pumps.

What do you wish you had in your closet but don’t have?  A wool Balenciaga coat.

What do you have in your closet that you should throw away but still haven’t?  A ridiculous “Cosby” sweater that I have never worn but still see the potential in so I never get rid of it.

What’s in your closet that you inherited from another person and still like to wear?  My mom gave me the leather skirt and vest that she bought in London and wore when she got married to my Dad.

What is the best piece of clothing or accessory that someone else bought for you?  A sapphire and diamond tennis bracelet.

What piece(s) of jewelry do you wear everyday?  I don’t wear any particular piece of jewelry everyday.  I wait to match it with my outfit.

Do you wear a fragrance?  Hermes Eau des Merveilles.
Thanks for letting me interview your closet Tasha.  I’m glad I got to know you better too.  Now would you mind if I borrowed your Angela Valentine Kereol bucket bag!?
