MynameisNatalie.Iwasbornand raised in Hong Kong. I teach kids for a living, and I love my job. I get a great sense of achievement from seeing my students develop and nurture as individuals. I feel that if I can have a positive impact on their future then I am doing my job well. I love traveling, I think it’s a great way to go out of your comfort zone and experience things you wouldn’t be able to experience at home. I am also a foodie at heart which makes me an explorer of the food world. I absolutely love trying different kinds of food, it just elevates my mood. In the weekend, I am usually out discovering new eats or drinks and relaxing at home with my crime shows.
We spent 5 minutes with Natalie.
From power outfit inspo to guilty pleasures, read on to discover more about their style AND story.
How would you describe your everyday style?
My daily style is comfort and confidence. I feel ready to take on the day once I’m dressed. I’m usually in jeans, and a simple top that’s embellished with fun piece like a bright scarf, a chunky necklace, or a striking earring.
How did you fit Emma into your lifestyle?
I like to dress up a bit when I go out during the weekends since I’m mostly in casual attire when I go to work. Emma’s stylish outfits are so vibrant and versatile that it fits any occasion whether it be an afternoon tea with my girlfriends, checking out new restaurants or a night out dancing—I feel and look attractive, chic, and elegant when I wear Emma’s pieces.
What is your top styling tip everyone should know?
Always wear something that pops out from the rest of your outfit. When I’m wearing a plain t-shirt and blue jeans, I would usually pair it with a printed blazer, a bright coloured bag or wear bold jewellery. A great tip is always planning the night before. Stick to your go-tos and add on from there to make sure it’s both fashion-forward and functional.
What’s a go-to power outfit you wear?
I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind gal so that’s my go-to power outfit. I would wear my flare jeans and plain black t-shirt accessorized with a piece of gold jewellery, it's easy and simple and I know I can always throw it on, and look put together. I feel relaxed yet trendy in it while showing off my personality.
Your favourite colour to wear?
I love the colour black. 80% of my wardrobe is in black. When I wear black, I feel daring, seductive, and mysterious.
What is the first thing you do in the morning?
The first thing I do in the morning is have my cup of coffee while watching the news on TV to keep me informed of what’s happening around the world.

Who is your celeb style muse?
I love Blake Lively-she is a true fashion icon for me. She dresses to accentuate her assets—she is ultra-glamorous on her red carpet looks and has an uber trendy street- style, she always looks elegant and fresh.
Best advice you’ve ever been given?
Compliment yourself every day!
What’s your favourite guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure? Late night snacking! I have a crazy sweet tooth and I would always treat myself to something sweet like ice cream, chocolates or cake while watching my crime shows before going to bed.
