{Street-Spotted} Marilyn Kirschner

Tell us FOFs: Who’s your style muse?

Your most fashionable friend? Your mother? A celeb style icon?

We commend Marilyn Kirschner, an FOF we met on the street, for her honest answer: “Me!” says Marilyn.

Name: Marilyn Kirschner

How old are you? 61

What do you do? I’m the editor-in-chief of LookOnline.com and a long-time fashion editor.

Do you have a favorite designer? I love Chanel. I love looking at what Balenciaga does. It varies each season. I like a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I love Michael Kors. I love Celine–what they’re doing there. I love bits of Prada. It really depends.

Where do you shop? I am an ‘equal opportunity’ shopper but one place I would have to say is Ebay! I’ve been very lucky and some of my most treasured possessions were scored there. I have long been a vintage devotee and have been lucky at great thrift and consignment shops. I also love Uniqlo, the Gap, J. Crew and Banana Republic.

How do you describe your style? Classic but with a twist. I am really a classicist at heart (and the older I get the more important those amazing classic pieces become), but the they have to be distinctive with a lot of personality. I like to add playful, whimsical elements or an element of surprise. I don’t like to look like everyone else.

What style advice do you have for other FOFs? I don’t believe that just because you’re over a certain age, you cannot have a great fashion persona. Look at Iris Apfel!
