Our latest Haute Holiday interview is with the simply chic Kathleen of Inspirafashion.
Which “Kate” will you be channeling when you attend holiday parties this season — Moss, Middleton, Bosworth, or Perry?
Kathleen: Kate Bosworth. She exudes an effortless edge with a mix of feminine and classy style.
What holiday song brings you the most holiday spirit?
Kathleen: Ever since I found out about She & Him, I have loved their holiday version of Christmas Waltz. Such a cute and fun song. Oh, and Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt when they sing their New Year’s song.
What holiday food makes you bring out the stretchy pants?
Kathleen: Anything that involves pumpkin … pumpkin pie, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin ice cream. As you can tell, I love pumpkin. :)
What’s on your wishlist this holiday?
Kathleen: So tough because I have a long shopping lust-list. I’m hoping to get either an iPad or Tory Burch riding boots.
We’re all ears: Have a great holiday entertainment tip?
Kathleen: Serve drinks in jar cups — they’re adorable, yet fun. For added charm, dip the top of the cup in water and then crushed candy canes.
Which Handbag Heaven bag are you dreaming of this holiday season?
Kathleen: The Elise.
See how Kathleen styled the Elise throughout this entire post!
What holiday beverage makes you the merriest?
Kathleen: Pumpkin Spice Latte <3
Which gift from years past rivals the excitement of the Red Rider BB Gun from A Christmas Story?
Kathleen: One year when I was little, I got so lucky. My parents surprised me with a hot pink Barbie convertible that I could drive around all by myself. I wasn’t even 5 and I already had my own car!
What holiday movie is on repeat throughout the season?
Kathleen: Love Actually has been my recent favorite. Everything about that movie makes me so happy.
What’s your favorite holiday memory?
Kathleen: It probably consists of whenever my entire family is together at my grandparents’ house that we all grew up in. Having everyone together for the holidays is probably the reason why I love Christmas and the holiday season so much. So no single holiday memory is my favorite, just any with my Murillo family. :)
