Q&A: Revivals Boutique’s Robin Eklund
The owner of the Narberth consignment boutique shares her personal style.
Personal style: I’ll always be a jeans girl. I consider myself classic, with an edge and a little sexiness. I like to mix modern pieces with vintage jewelry.
Style icons: I was raised on old black and white Hollywood movies—I love Katharine Hepburn. I also like Blake Lively and Kate Middleton—they’re modern and elegant, and always look comfortable in their own skin.
Closet staples: Denim, Hermes and Chanel belts, Celine leather tote and Burberry Moto jacket.
Favorite item in her closet: My black Chanel blazer.
Go-to outfit for a night out: Jeans, heels, blouse, blazer, YSL clutch and, if needed, my black Theory trench coat.
Summer fashion trends she loves: Shades of light blue, bold colors, fringe, sheer fabrics and ruffles.
Platform wedges or a strappy sandal?: It depends on the outfit. Strappy sandals can make any outfit sexy if that’s what you’re going for.
Fall trends she's looking forward to: A coat that makes you feel strong, confident and comfortable, or a well-tailored dress you feel powerful in. I’m looking forward to fall florals and textured knits, as well.
Best piece to purchase from consignment: For the accessory lover, an amazing designer handbag is the way to go. They always fit, hold their value and will last multiple seasons. For that tailored piece of clothing, a little black dress.
