We love Shreya of Luxury Belle

Describe your personal style.
If I were to describe my personal style it would have to be to dress to make yourself happy and a nice mix of everything. I can either go all out or just be super laid back as well. I don’t think I really stick to dressing a certain way and I usually just dress according to my mood and weather and I love trying out new things. I really do feel that variety keeps life interesting and trying new fashions is exciting to me!

What is your chief characteristic?
My chief characteristic would have to be perseverance. I truly believe that nothing is impossible. As cliché as that may sound I really do believe that if we truly put our absolute one hundred percent into what we are doing we can at some po attain what we wish to. I’m not saying that we will not encounter any difficulties but surely we will get there at some point and I think with time and experiences and future experiences this is one of my characteristic- not giving up and to keep trying.

Who are your real life fashion heroes?
Blake Lively and Kourtney Kardashian hands down!

What fashion do you dislike the most?
I think the fashion that I dislike the most would be dressing in fashion that everyone else is just because it’s “in”. I feel that you shouldn’t dress a certain way because it is the norm. However, don’t get me wrong I’m all for all of the newest fashion trends. I really think that there are so many places to get inspiration from and that we should take advantage of that for sure. Just make sure you’re happy and comfortable in what you’re wearing.

Food hands down. I have no shame in admitting this haha I love to eat I’m a foodie! If you check out my Instagram or any social media for that matter you’ll see a great mix of food and fashion! Food is something I’ve always loved as a child and I love trying new things!

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement would have to be participating in the Miss India New England 2014 competition. It was something that was really out of my comfort zone because I usually wouldn’t see myself doing that but I had always secretly wanted to do it. So actually doing it was a big deal for me and I honestly can say it was such an amazing experience and I learned a lot and got a lot out of it.

What is your most treasured possession?
My most treasured possession is a necklace and earring set my mom gave me from her wedding which was passed down to her as a family heirloom which I love because it is so unique and has a lot of sentimental value to me and the rest of my family for that matter.
