Brittany Wilson is the Fashion Force behind the blog Piece, Love and Sole which is about fashion, accessories and New York.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?
When I relocated to New York from the DC area a dear friend suggested that I start a blog to stay connected to fashion. It originally started as a blog about affordable accessories but then I noticed that I was experiencing so many fun things in New York that I wanted to share those too. So the purpose of the blog morphed from just accessories to fashion and New York.
WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?
It’s a different spin on the phrase “Peace, Love and Sole” Piece = as in a piece of clothing or a piece of me, Love = the blog is about things I love, Sole = Shoes…because who doesn’t love shoes.
WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?
I blog from my view and with my voice. That’s the best part about blogging, you can be an individual.
DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?
I like to be comfortable and chic. If you aren’t comfy it shows…and that’s not cute. Dresses are the easiest thing to wear but I love a good graphic tee too. I like to play around with fashion. So one day I’m in boyfriend jeans, a tee and sneakers, the next I could be in a fitted dress and stilettos and then the next day I could be in leather pants and a blouse.
WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?
Diane Von Furstenberg
FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?
A friend of mine has a clothing line Yunes Swathe, they’ve really grown into something beautiful. I don’t really have any favorites but I definitely love to explore. I think my favorites are usually unique designers that I come across in flea markets.
FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?
My printed sets. I love that you can wear them as one outfit or break the separates apart and make a completely new look
IF YOU WERE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND CARINE ROITFELD WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR? Oh! Probably a black sheath dress, a statement necklace and some killer, strappy shoes

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?
Ugh, I’m sure there isn’t just one. Years ago I wore a blazer, button down shirt, jean skirt and flat moccasin boots to the club. I just can’t…
3 FASHION TIPS?
1) If it’s not comfortable before you leave the house, change.
2) If you have no idea what you want to wear, start with your shoes.
3) Lipstick fixes everything
WHAT IS THE STYLE OF THE CITY YOU LIVE IN AND WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR CITIES STYLE?
New York is such a fashion mecca but I also love that there are people that live here that aren’t caught up in fashion and do their own thing. To me, that’s the best type of style.
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB?
To organize celebrity closets.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB?
I worked in a dental office in high school
WHAT IS YOUR TYPICAL DAY LIKE?
During the week it’s fairly uneventful and I’m ok with that. Work and working out. I may host or attend an event during the evening once a week (with the other company I run with my business partner: Dolls of the City). But I spend a lot of time thinking about what’s next and writing that down in my notebook.
Scrolling through Instagram forever lol
