Accessorize Your Look: Alexis Wolfer
Alexis Wolfer is a beauty expert, a Real Beauty activist, and a guinea pig. With a background in editorial and a master’s in Women’s Studies from Columbia University, Alexis founded the popular online beauty magazine, TheBeautyBean.com, which, in just 2 years, was named one of Forbes Magazine’s Top 10 Lifestyle Websites for Women. Simultaneously, Alexis has become a well-known beauty and lifestyle expert, as seen on the E!, NBC, CBS, ABC and FOX as well as in print outlets from WWD to AOL, CNN.com to Oprah.com, Teen Vogue to Star Magazine and even the United Kingdom’s leading newspaper, The Independent. Alexis has a finger on the pulse of all things beauty. But when it comes to her own beauty routine, you’re just as likely to find her in the kitchen whipping up homemade beauty remedies with food as you are in her bathroom testing out all the latest products on the market. It is Alexis’ unique and effective food-based beauty secrets both that have women across the world turning to her for beauty tips and that has led Access Hollywood to dub her the 'Female Beauty MacGyver' and People Stylewatch to call her ‘The DIY Beauty Queen.’ Her first book, The Recipe For Radiance: Discover Beauty’s Best Kept Secrets In Your Kitchen is available on Amazon now!
We got to chat with Alexis to find out what her favorite accessories are and how she styles them. Check out what she said below:
SS: What is your favorite accessory and why?
Alexis: Ideal Women Necklace ($45.00): BUY HERE! They're the perfect combination of social commentary and fashion and I love the conversations they spark when I explain that, yes, I am wearing Barbie's crotch on my neck (sometimes with a bedazzled bikini line!) in order to show the absurdity of unrealistic body ideals women feel pressured to adhere to. It also let's me talk about my mission across all I do from TheBeautyBean.com to my new book, The Recipe For Radiance: to empower women to feel their most beautiful. Recently, I've been rocking the small rose gold and large brushed silver ones together.
