Claudia’s style advice
“Smile! Of course, that is easier said than done. On a purely clothing level, my advice is to only wear what makes you feel good. If it doesn’t feel right, take it off. Also, don’t try too hard and remember that “Less is more”. Oh, and only wear shoes that you can actually walk in.”
