Blogger of the Week: Mind Body Swag
Meet this week's featured blogger: Lisa DiCicco Cahue, the actress and fit model behind Mind Body Swag. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Merchandising from Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), she went on to work in various areas of the fashion industry, specifically in the fashion closet at Harper's Bazaar as well as being an assistant buyer at Scoop NYC. She quickly realized that behind the scenes was not her passion, so she made the decision to fully commit and immerse myself in the professional world of acting and modeling and, now, blogging!
Mind Body Swag is a personal style and lifestyle blog that will take you on a journey into Lisa's life, her love for fashion and traveling as well as give you an inside peek into her career. She launched the blog in April 2014 to create an environment to inspire and connect with like-minded fashionistas. In Lisa's mind, fashion is the truest expression of self. Her style is the epitome of effortless, classic and chic.
Mind Body Swag has been featured in Stylecaster as one of the “50 Bloggers You haven’t Discovered Yet,” and in Elle Spain on a similar list. Lisa's street style looks have landed on Vogue Italia, Lucky Magazine, Who What Wear, Refinery 29, and Net-A-Porter, just to name a few.
Are you totally inspired by Lisa's fit and fashionable lifestyle? We sure are! Take a look below at the 5 must have items that keep this blogger babe happy and stylish!
1.) Aquaphor : If there is one thing I can’t live without it would have to be Aquaphor. I use it along with my daily moisturizer for my face day and night and nothing makes my skin feel more radiant and moisturized. It gives my skin a dewy glow and is perfect for the Winter months when you feel the most dry. I also love using it on my lips and hands.
2.) Leather Jacket : If there is one thing every girl should invest in, it’s a leather jacket. I think a leather jacket is a must-have that never goes out of style, so investing in a good one that will last more than one season is a smart purchase. IRO moto ones are my favorite because they fit perfectly and the leather is so buttery soft that will only get better with each wear.
3.) Skinny Jeans : Jeans are a staple and I have many pairs that I wear over and over. My current favorite denim line is Frame. They make such great jeans. I own them in grey, black, and white but I would say these skinny blue jeans are the ones I wear the most. The color is the perfect blue and the denim quality is super soft and comfortable.
4.) Red Pumps : I love a red pump. They elevate any outfit and add a fun pop of color. I own these chic Gianvitto Rossi’s that are gorgeous. Nothing says sexy quite like red so I like to style them with basic outfits like jeans and a tee. Sometimes I even work the outfit around these shoes just to wear them more often. Since they work for any season they are must-haves for sure.
5.) Classic white button down : No wardrobe is complete without a white button down shirt. This one from J.Crew is so perfect. I style this shirt as a layering piece under sweaters in the winter or over a bikini in the summer. They are so many ways to wear a white button button, making a classic must-have.
