learned about1:02Mercedes that I love is she's looking to1:05elevate her style she wants to stay1:07rooted in her style as a maker but1:10pushed the elevation and femininity just1:12a little1:14[Music]1:20bit this is a new silhouette shape that1:23is trending right now this is called the1:25barrel leg but look closely at that1:27print okay okay yeah how do you feel I1:30actually I feel good I feel good print1:33is out of your comfort zone so thank you1:35for trying a print isn't that ironic1:36like I'm a mosaic artist but I love1:38wearing Basics tell everybody about what1:40you do for work I'm a mosaic artist and1:43it was really important to me to start1:45my own supply chain in the tile that I1:48use for my mosaic art so I've been1:50building a tile manufacturing company1:52for 18 years aiming to put it all1:55together as a mosaic artist and a tile1:58manufacturer instead of like one or the2:00other do these slides feel out of your2:02comfort zone yes they do this color I'm2:04paranoid that it's too contrasting with2:07my porcelain colored skin let's try2:10these I think these are going to be a2:11fun compromise pushing you out of your2:13comfort zone but still making you feel2:15like you're true self okay those feels2:18really good now we're feeling like2:20Mercedes now we're feeling like you I2:23love these boots how do you

are3:03going to work on your work looks3:04incorporating that wide leg bottom into3:07some looks for3:08work we found out that Mercedes was3:11actually not wearing denim that's true3:13to her size so we sized her down in3:15denim she typically likes denim that's3:18oversized so I think that's why she was3:20sizing up but the problem is denim is3:22getting more oversized so she can stick3:25to her true size and she doesn't need to3:28size up anymore so I love the AA jeene3:30for her this was funky and fun and3:33oversized but it also flattered her3:35shape you are a huge fan of wideleg3:38denim
