Since she's grown up all over the world, Cassidy has a unique view of fashion. She's not tied into the trends of a particular country or region when it comes to clothes, but simply chooses what she likes and what she's comfortable wearing. Also, she likes to collect new pieces to add to her wardrobe in every country she visits, whether it's a nautical striped shirt from Brittany or a Harajuku Girl purse from Tokyo. Her signature style emerges as she puts the pieces together in her own unique way.
As I've been working on these books, I've thought a lot about what constitutes a "signature style." And... confession time... I'm not sure that I have one! I do have one favorite piece of clothing - an old jean jacket I can wear with just about everything - but I don't know if that defines my style. What about you? Do you have a signature style? How would you describe it?
P.S. On a related note, in Kay Cassidy's upcoming book, THE CINDERELLA SOCIETY (out April 13 - watch for it!) her character Jess learns about signature styles and how to settle on the right one for her. It's a very fun book, but also a very sobering one, as Jess also learns to empower herself against bullying. If THE CINDERELLA SOCIETY isn't already on your radar, be sure to put it there!
