WATCH: Princess Violago Takes Us On A Closet Tour!
A well-balanced collection of fine garments, sentimental pieces, and custom-made finds make this closet fit for a princess.
For a scene-stealer like Princess Violago, there's no such thing as holding back with style. After all, her very name suggests that dressing to the nines is part and parcel of who she is. One look at her from across the room and it's clear that fashion is second nature to this mommy of two; beauty and perfection are her stylish non-negotiables.
Having grown up with a mother who loved all things majestic—be it her clothes, jewelry, home décor, or even the cities abroad that she frequented—Princess was heavily influenced by her tastes. Purchasing one-of-a-kind mementos that can be worn in special occasions and statement-making essentials became a borrowed habit from her that Princess carried into adulthood, proving that she is, indeed, her fashionable mother's daughter.
Combining her own preferences with those that she adapted, Princess' style is best described as feminine and relaxed, and always an expression of her love for the finer things in life. Contrary to what may might imagine, price tags and luxury labels mean very little to her; she's all about falling in love with a piece for fitting her to a tee regardless of where it's from, or better yet, opting for tailored clothes that are sure to flatter and bring out her best assets.
She's also an investment shopping kind of gal; she's well aware that trends come and go, and so she limits her spending when it comes to fast fashion pieces. Dresses, skirts, and ultra-girly finds in classic neutrals and shades of pink fill her closet, while a special place is reserved for her beloved coats and scarves which she inherited from her mom (her mink coats are by far her favorite and are always with her on her trips abroad).
Taking a moment to think of what every fashion-conscious woman should never be without, she suggests a bag that's not just fashionable but also functional, a watch, a pair of jeans they can count on dress-down kind of days, and a day-to-night or multi-purpose cocktail dress.
As an extra tip, Princess also says that finding a couturier you can depend on is essential; their services will definitely come in handy during the times you need a perfectly fitted and customized garment for a special occasion, or an existing piece altered for a better fit.
All in all, Princess is definitely a woman who lives up to her name just by her sense of style!
