Art Basel Garb: Cleo Wade & Mia Moretti
The Inside Source caught up with New York sweethearts Cleo Wade of Alice + Olivia and DJ maestro Mia Moretti who attended Art Basel 2012 to spin for Harper’s Bazaar, Scope’s kick-off party, Architectural Digest, and Galore Magazine.
Cleo Wade, a stylist at heart, tells me she searches eBay for hard-to-find vintage. “I’m always searching for vintage kimonos” says the New Orleans-born lady. Here she’s rocking an Alice + Olivia dress with a vintage kimono. Coincidentally, Cleo is wearing a design by Mia, the “Mia Moretti for Pency” scarf with shoes by Alberta Ferretti. Mia wears… [MORE] the same designer top and pants — Joy Cioci. Mixed up with those Ferragamo shoes, Chanel cuff and vintage bag, and voila, you’ve got two foxy ladies hitting Art Basel in style.
Cleo suggests you know your size and best designer before doing the online hunt. After that, hunting eBay is a cinch. “For example” she adds, “this Alice and Olivia dress I’m wearing in the picture, I’m always the same size in AO and the fit is always perfect so it makes online shopping way less stressful.” Her other search item is costume jewelry. “eBay is great for finding statement pieces that can take your going-out look to the next level.” Another eBay temptation of the style maven? “Finding old records and vintage furniture,” she says with an exclamation.
