GUEST BLOGGER SERIES Q&A: PIPPA LORD OF SOUS STYLE
Tell me about the Fall 12 Helmut Lang / HELMUT “daily uniform” essentials you selected.
My favorite things are a black blazer, black stretch pants (it feels like I’m at the gym but way chicer and the best ‘go to item) and white T’s. All of which HL does perfectly.
What’s your favorite JAM to cook too?
Frank Ocean - he is one sexy and talented man.
In the kitchen you swear by ____.
If you could cook for anyone, who would it be and why?
I wouldn’t cook - I’d mix up a few awesome cocktails and small bites for ‘the women’ - Hillary, Oprah, Tina and Arianna Huffington. I’m sure after the first cocktail world peace would be sorted. I need to send them an invite via paperless post or something….
Tell us about your “ah-ha” moment that made you start Sous Style.
My ‘ah-ha’ came from an ‘oh no.’ I started Sous Style because for years I hated food, my bedroom and I wanted to live in a villa in Tuscany. I made friends with these two sides of my life, food and home and fell in love with the idea of homemaking. Furthermore, I realized no one was talking to my generation of homemakers. I’m all about living a fashionably imperfect life full of sexy things in food, home and lifestyle. Hey, why not live your ‘best life ever’ now?
Best meal you’ve ever had was at ___.
I love it at Playa De Los Aristas that is located in the surf village of Montezuma in Costa Rica. It’s a super low key but elegant dining experience right on the beach.
What is NY’s best kept secret?
Her name is Elva. She is a fabulous soulful Russian woman who does the best ‘cheap and shriek’ wax ever while counseling clients on life’s ‘big questions.’
Your motto is ____.
I have a different motto for most days of the week but today it is ‘what would madonna do?’
Favorite site for discovering new recipes?
Favorite coffee table book you own is _____.
Bob Richardson, House and Garden Almanac 1973 and Derek Blasberg’s Classy to keep me in check.
Your vice is ______
