Meet Chibia! Our #TOMS Give Back to School Pinterest Contest Winner!

August 19th, 2014 by TOMS

How would you describe your personal style?

I’m all about two things: comfort, but classy. You want to be comfortable and still look nice at the same time, right? If I’m wearing a blazer, I will most likely pair with a loose t-shirt. If I am wearing jeans, I roll them up. I really enjoy wearing earth and dark tones. Pops of color are fun too, but you’ll most likely catch me in tan or navy blue.

Can you tell us a little bit about the winning looks on your Pinterest board?

When I made this board, I focused on pieces that I would love to wear, but also took into consideration the people that would be looking at my board. I wanted this board to represent me, but still be versatile enough for everyone else to enjoy.

Who is your fashion inspiration?

Well, this is kind of a strange answer, but I would have to say the lead vocalist of The Strokes, Julian Casablancas. This guy is wonderful. I’ve learned to take what he wears and make them feel and look more feminine. I like edge and he represents that. Did I mention he was wonderful?

Which pair is your go-to TOMS?

I’m a classics kind of gal. They make your feet look fabulous!

What are some of your favorite Marketplace products? 

Since I couldn’t choose, I picked two. First, the bags! They’re all super cute and the backpacks are simple, urban, and stylish. I cannot begin to describe how much I love the bags. The second would be the jewelry. If I’m wearing any jewelry, it’s simple and chic. One of my favorites would have to be the silver whistle by Fortuned Culture because it’s adorable.

We debuted a lot of new silhouettes this season, which one is your favorite for fall? 

My favorite silhouette was for the Women’s Alpha Boots. It clearly showed how well the boots were put together and that those boots were made for walking and that’s just what they’ll do. Loved it.
