Style Inspiration: The Work Colleague

In the fifth installment of my style inspiration series (find the first four here, here, here and here) I'm featuring my gorgeous work colleague Qendresa. Obviously she is a friend as well as a work colleague, but work is where I see her the most!






I'd say Qendresa's style is very classic and timeless while still being very on trend. She tends to wear block colours rather than prints, but she's an expert at layering and making outfits look interesting. Her clothes always exude quality - even though they're mostly from Zara she manages to make them look more expensive than that and she often wears luxurious looking fabrics (sorry for stroking your clothes so often at work Qendresa, it's because they're luxurious looking!)

Qendresa very kindly let me stalk her with my camera one lunch break and also answered some questions about her style so I'll let the pictures and her do the talking rather than me rambling on with my inept descriptive skills! I've been trying to persuade Qendresa to start a blog of her own so if you think she should then please say so in the comments so I can use them as ammo!


Where do you get your style inspiration from? Lots of thing/places/people...but I will only give you a few as we may be here a while if I rattle them all off. I get inspired by the (cliché alert!) weather, my mood, a specific colour I am coveting, the occasion I’m dressing for or what I’m doing at work that day(!) and Instagram (duh!). 


Who is your biggest style inspiration? I’m trying to think of someone that will make me seem really cool but I can’t say I get inspired by those fashion icons from times gone by because, well I’m just not that cool clearly...so being honest, my sisters are my style inspiration a lot of the time because they’re effortlessly stylish. But if I was to liken my style to someone famous it would probably be Jessica Alba who has a really down-to-earth but sexy, chic and fabulous wardrobe!


What do you think of Qendresa's style? Who is your style inspiration?

  8. LOVE the outfit! I actually get a lot of style inspiration from blogs (like yours), youtube and instagram. But my mood and he weather do influence me a lot! That's why I hate packing for travelling because I never know what I'll want to wear...

  11. What a beautiful outfit, I love how simple and elegant it is - she really knows how to combine different layers! And yes, I think she should start her own fashion blog, I would certainly read it. :) I get my style inspiration from magazines etc and I'm also really inspired by Samantha Maria's style. xx
