Charlotte from The Fashion Guitar
Charlotte Groeneveld – the woman behind The Fashion Guitar – dresses well to feel good. She tells H&M Life about her guilty pleasures and must-haves for the season.
Dutch-born Charlotte Groeneveld lives in New York, where she is a full-time blogger.
Charlotte’s love for fashion takes her all over the world, and she fills her virtual diary The Fashion Guitar with snaps of her fun and trendy style. Adam Katz Sinding captured her in New York.
WHAT IS YOUR GUILTY FASHION PLEASURE?
”Shoes… I have such a shoe-addiction. I know it’s such a cliché, but it’s true! Come look at my wardrobe!”
WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGNER?
”Valentino by far, but I have a very weak spot at the moment for Gucci, Miu Miu, and Chloé too.”
WHO IS YOUR STYLE ICON?
”My street style favourite is Natalie Joos (Tales of Endearment). Evangelie Smyrniotaki (StyleHeroine) is pure inspiration, always perfectly styled in her carefully curated pieces. Pure comfort and the queen of mixing the best basics is Sabrina Meijer (AfterDRK).”
IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN HISTORY, WHAT FASHION ERA WOULD YOU LIKE TO
”I have a secret love for period dramas. I always think that if I would have been an actress, I would have loved to play a part in The Young Victoria or something.”
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET?
”I would love to hang out with Emma Stone, because I think she’s hilarious. And I also wouldn’t mind meeting Charlie Hunnam… ”
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD?
”A Vogue photographer. I always tried to copy Vogue editorials, with my two younger sisters modelling – I was around 12 and they were half my age… I still like to believe they enjoyed it! The images look pretty nice.”
WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON EARTH?
”1. New York, because that’s where I live. 2. Paris, because that’s where my favourite fashion week is. 3. Amsterdam, because that’s where my heart always will be, my home-town.”
IF YOU HAD TO LEAVE YOUR APARTMENT IN A HURRY, WHAT WOULD YOU
”My kids of course, then my favourite Chanel Boy bag with my phone and keys in it, oh and a pair of sunglasses; my black Célines. My Valentino limited edition sneakers if they are up for grabs. They are my absolute favourite at the moment.”
WHAT DO YOU NEED RIGHT NOW?
”I need the full Chloé SS15 collection I’m afraid, and a break to a warmer place – I am not sure how I’m going to deal with this New York winter. Other than that, a good pedicure would be nice!
WHAT IS YOUR LATEST BEAUTY DISCOVERY?
”Face oil is my latest beauty favourite. Never winter dry skin again.”
