{Meet the Challenger} Madly Stylish Events

December 15th, 2011 in designer's challenge

Today we are back to introduce another “Designer’s Challenge” challenger (that sounds weird).  I had the great pleasure of meeting Wilmara from Madly Stylish Events back in April at a local “Dreamer’s Into Doer’s” meet and greet.   I fell in love with her style instantly.    Please meet, Madly Stylish Events

1.  What is your favorite color?
Favorite color….a few but I’ll go with Orange and gold

2.  What is the best bargain you ever got?
A red swing coat on clearance at Anthropologie…every time I wear people compliment and/or ask where I got it.  It’s 5 years old!

3.  Are you a beach or pool person?
Beach…love the smell

4.  Do you still ride roller coasters?
No, not at all!

5.  What is your favorite vacation spot?
Paris, but anyplace where I can spend sometime with the hubby

6.  What is your most embarrassing moment?
Most embarrassing moment…..who knows with three kids probably too many to say…..

7.  What is your favorite sound?
When my girls are playing sweetly together

8.  What would you describe as your design style?
My design style is Anthropologie, mixed with Target and some Pottery Barn and a dash of Z Gallerie

9.  Who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration…hum, that’s a tough one… my husband, Coco Chanel, Josephine Baker

10.  If you could have a theme song, what would it be?
Theme song……corny, I know but right now it’s Selena Gomez’s Who Says?

11.  If you could pick any reality TV star that relates to you, who would it be?
Reality TV star…..I wished I watched enough TV to have one

12.  What’s a motto you live by?
Motto…at the moment…”there is nothing more badass than being who you are”…from a blog I follow (Build a better brand)

Here are a few photos from Wilmara’s favorite event!

Wilmara writes,

This was for a little girl turning six who loves the little mermaid….she was so excited when she saw the party room all set up….she had big saucer eyes and could not stop smiling.  Her reaction the whole time was “this is for me”?!  When I came back to pack my props up, she came up to me and quietly whispered “Thank you!”  It made me tear up….and it’s those moments that reaffirm why I do what I do.
