Mikell Belser & Donna Greenfield-Belser
Names: Mikell Belser and Donna Greenfield-Belser
Both live in: Bethesda
Donna: In her sixties
How would you describe your personal style?
Mikell: “I would say her style is funky and crafty, an artistic style. Mine is preppy, a little funky and trendy.”
Donna: “And with elegance, I’d say. Classic.”
Where do you like to shop?
Mikell: “Definitely Zara and Anthrolopologie.”
Donna: “Pretty much anywhere and at any time. Online and locally - there's a wonderful store called Upstairs on 7th in DC. Also a beautiful store in Rehoboth called Anything Goes. and Bloomingdale's.”
What is one must-have wardrobe item?
Mikell: “A great pair jeans.”
Donna: “For me, it’s actually in my makeup kit: my Bobbi Brown eye-liner.”
How has your style changed or evolved?
Mikell: "Her style hasn’t really changed much over the years. It’s always been out of the box. For me, I appreciate in investing things more now and mixing nicer pieces with less nice ones.”
What's on your fashion wish-list?
Mikell: “I’m actually looking to buy a fur or faux fur vest.”
Donna: “I’ve passed over buying a fur for years, I’m always going to look but never buy.”
Fashion most embarassing moment?
Mikell: “Actually this style is sort of coming back now: the platform that goes all the way around, like a brick on the bottom of a shoe. That’s what I wore years ago and I could never do it again. I remember the nylon straps on black, just awful. I would say shoes are what I’ve made the most mistakes on.”
