Name: Natasha Garcia
Occupation: Membership Director at The Columbia Club
Dream Job: Food and Resort Photographer for a high profile magazine
Self-Description of Style: International Bohemian
Fashion Item you can’t live without: Earrings. My mother always told me to never leave the house without earrings.
Favorite Place to Shop: Indy Swank or on Vacation. “It’s like a treasure hunt! Shopping is more fun when it can become an adventure and each piece can have an identity.”
Tell me about your pieces: The Earrings and Bone Ring are from a trip to visit family in Columbia. The bag is from a vacation in Mexico. The rest is because I now live in Indiana where the weather is unpredictable so knowing how to layer is important. Layering gives you a chance to throw together different pieces, play with texture and color. I really like being unpredictable and using color.”
How did you get to Indiana: Via Puerto Rico, Baton Rouge, Scottsdale and Atlanta. I moved here for love and have loved the move.
You’re well traveled, where’s your favorite destination: Columbia. Visiting my family allowed me to solidify part of my identity. It was my first time back in 20 years and I was able to bring back a stronger sense of who I am.
Favorite style on the opposite sex: A guy who can accessorize and dress up, rock some scruff without looking homely and a good newsboy cap.
Least favorite style on the opposite sex: White sneakers.
One piece of fashion advice for Indianapolis: Be fun, life is fun. Wear more colors and embrace life.
Favorite Indianapolis hangout: The Jazz Kitchen
Favorite thing about Indianapolis: The accessibility. Anything you enjoy, Indianapolis has a scene for it. You just need to dive in and give it a chance.
