Maureen Quinn loves fashion and it shows. Maureen was spotted in a breezy heather gray maxi dress cinched with a braided black belt and adorned with simple gold bangles. She donned a pair of cream anklets that revealed a cool tattoo that reads, “From the ashes we will rise.”

A native Oak Parker, Maureen is currently pursuing a marketing and fashion merchandising degree at the University of South Carolina. Let’s find out what style tips Maureen offers for women to look and feel their best.  

Your fashion style: Classic, feminine, fresh 

Fashion inspiration: Nicole Richie

Favorite local boutiques: Trends Consignment Shop in Oak Park (810 North Blvd. – in the Divine Consign annex). Trends has so many great fashion finds. They get new merchandise in every day. Clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, I love their selection. (Ladies, if you haven’t been here, I am officially obsessed. They’re prices are shockingly low, and they're open every day of the week.)

Greatest fashion Iindulgence: Shoes and handbags!

Item every woman should own: A basic t-shirt dress. It’s a piece that multitasks. You can dress it up or wear it as a casual piece.

Fashion advice: Dress for you and your body, no matter the trend. Some women think that a name brand may be a must-have or wardrobe solution, but just because it’s Dolce and Gabbana doesn’t mean it’s the right fit, cut, or style for you. Focus on what looks good on you and be confident!

Stop back next week for more Style Inspiration from friends and neighbors. Until then, I'll see you around town and in the shops!

I love Trends. Talk about great finds. Wondering when the rest of the community is going to catch on to what a gem we have on our hands here! This young lady knows what looks good on her body and has chosen a simple yet stylish dress.

Ooh la la! That Maureen is a cute one! She always dresses like the superstar she is.... and she always shops at Trends - 810 North Boulevard-(or at least that is where I always see her). Not only does she dress like a movie star, she is always willing to give great advice so we can look as amazing as she does!
