Naomi Elizee, Florida native and now New York City resident, worked her way up from interning at Seventeen magazine and Saks Fifth Avenue to her current full-time gig as Fashion Market Assistant at Vogue. Her years of working in the fashion industry have honed her eye for style, making her the budding style star she is today. Below, Elizee shares her favorite brands, her obsession with boots, and the charm of having chameleon style.
Where do you live?
NE: “Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.”
Where are your favorite places to shop?
NE: “There are so many… To name a few: Beacons Closet, Vestiaire Collective, the Real Real, Aritzia, Depop. A lot of vintage and secondhand stores!
What brands are you loving right now?
NE: “This is a hard one! If I had to narrow the list down, it would include (old) Celine, Helmut Lang, Ellery, Loewe, and Maison Margiela.”
What are your go-to outfit essentials?
NE: “I’m a sucker for a good boot…you can catch me scrolling through The Real Real and Depop in my spare time to snag my next boot of the moment. It is simply one of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe as I can easily throw on a boot, whether ankle or thigh high, with almost every outfit. I’m also always looking for a good coat, especially in the weather we’ve been having in New York recently. It’s vital to have a coat that is both one-of-a-kind and warm.”
Tell us your style philosophy.
NE: “I used to give myself a hard time for not having a solid formula behind my style but I have now come to terms with my chameleon like tendencies. My style transforms depending on my mood and/or occasion but one thing I am confident in is I that I have a great eye for what works for me and what I feel comfortable in. I’m always looking for pieces that bring me joy; pieces that are classic and will be in my closet for years to come. My style philosophy is to continue to take risks in what I wear while I remain true to myself and feel comfortable in what I’m wearing.”
