So, who's Chelsea?
My first introduction to Chelsea Coffey came through hearing about her non-profit, Mia's Closet, where she and her team of volunteers work tirelessly to achieve their mission of building confidence and self-worth in underserved kids k-12 one outfit at a time! Chelsea is a woman of serious substance and serious style. Over at her blog The Coffey Break, you can find everything from styling tips, to devotionals, to weekly Coffey Break Chats with Chelsea and the occasional guest from her network of stylish and in-the-know friends and acquaintances. Or you can shop her curated collection of thrifted and vintage finds at The Coffey Shop. She is one woman of many hats (she's an image consultant, personal stylist, brand strategist, writer, and futurist) that we can't wait to work with more here at A Leap of Style.
Q: What does taking a leap of style, or a fashion risk, mean to you?
Q2: What inspires your personal style?
I'm fully convinced I was born in the wrong era. The seventies simply carry me away. The fashion, the hair, the music, all of it. I'd describe my style as boho chic with an urban twist. Comfort at the core of most everything I put together, with a hint of Brenda Coffey - my mom ;-) She has fantastic style. I remember watching her get ready and take off to this event or that event with my dad and being so blown away by her. And as much as I'm sure that that the clothes played a part, she exuded the beauty and true essence of style.
