Tell us a bit about yourself…
I am a fashion enthusiast, vintage lover, music writer, doggo mama, feminist, and artist.
How would you describe your vibe?
I’m definitely super chill. I’m not easily offended, and I’m very much a go-with-the-flow kind of person!
Festival season is coming up, will you be going to any?
I have no plans for festivals per say, but I am working on planning some fun trips, and I already have tickets to see Lauryn Hill’s 20th anniversary tour, as well as OTRII. To say I’m excited would be an extreme understatement!
What’s the last song you listened to?
Does the friends theme song count? (haha) But seriously probably Nice For What – the song of the summer!
What do you think makes a PDBAE?
A PDBAE is a woman who is unapologetically herself. Someone who loves expressing herself through fashion, takes risks, and supports other women!
Which PD shoes are you currently obsessing over right now? How would you style them?
I’m definitely all on board for the dad sneaker trend. It looks so effortlessly cool, plus they’re super comfy. They go with denim, or biker shorts – and they’re cute with summery dresses too! You can’t really go wrong! But I’m also always loving an easy to wear bootie, which seems to pair well with anything from skirts to pants, shorts and beyond! Currently though, I’m obsessed over anything clear/perspex! I love the idea of wearing a super casual/boyfriend style outfit, paired with a clear pointed stiletto. It’s unexpectedly chic.
Your 5 beauty go-to items
ISClinical Face Wash (It’s life changing).
Body Shop All-in-One BB Cream (The one product I don’t think I could live without. I use this and then some concealer as opposed to a foundation and it’s amazing. Leaves the skin all glowy and dewy and is so light and natural, plus moisturizing!)
Buxom Lip Polish in “Princess” (The perfect colour, and it plumps your lips as well! Win-Win)
Fenty Beauty Match Stick Trio (My every day as well -best way to contour!)
A Sunless Tanner! (I always like keeping that summery glow, but I try not to bake myself in the sun anymore).
What’s next for Phoenix Lauren, any summer plans?
Definitely! I have tentative plans to go to Europe, and NYC. Just trying to finalize everything. Other than that, it’s going to be a lot of beach time in my own city, and hopefully I’ll be able to go visit my family at some point.
Quick fire questions:
Stripes or checks?
Tea or coffee?
Sunset or sunrise?
Lipstick or lipgloss?
Leather or denim?
Jay Z or Kanye or Drake?
Not Kanye lolllll
