#Reece Loves : Fiona Byrne
What is your morning routine like?
I hop out of bed and immediately make coffee in a French press. I get excited for coffee as I fall asleep the night before! While it’s brewing, I make my bed, open all the curtains and blinds and windows and turn on the TV. I’ll usually watch a DVRed show with my coffee. Then I have a shower and get dressed as if I’m going to leave the house, but I actually just sit at my desk and start work around 9.30.
What are you currently reading for books and magazines?
Books I am reading Wishes Fulfilled by Dr Wayne Dyer, and I read Elle Décor, Grazia UK, Teen Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. I used to subscribe to New York Magazine too, but now I just read it online. This weekend I read the Oprah biography by Kitty Kelley. I’m a huge Oprah fan and I thought it was a really negative slant on such an amazing human. Wasn’t into that AT ALL.
Name two things Reece Hudson and The Byrne Notice have in common:
Firstly, we share a lot of the same friends. And we both know what looks good.
What is your favorite thing to do in New York?
I love to walk around. And I like going to parties. I don’t know any other city where there’s a million fun things to do literally every night. You have to choose carefully what parties/dinners you commit to. I don’t feel the need to go to everything. That would be impossible anyway.
What is your best style tip?
Be yourself. Know your complementary colors and know what fits work best on your shape. Also, avoid cheap synthetic fabrics like the plague.
What is your favorite current Reece Hudson bag and why?
I like my white clutch because it’s really light and you can fit loads in. I think you guys should bring back the canteen though. That was sick.
Best thing about having best friends is:
When you freak out about stuff they know how to talk you off a ledge. And they make you feel good about yourself.
What is currently in your Reece Hudson bag?
My ID, Nars Pure Matte lipstick in Vesuvio, a tiny brush for my bangs, Metrocard, credit and debit cards, $68 cash, Frends earbud headphones, a mini can of Aveda hairspray, a mini Makeup Forever High definition loose powder, Nars travel-size powder brush, Wrigley’s Extra gum from Ireland, Kiehl’s lip balm #1 and Ultimate Strength Hand Salve.
Favorite shoes to wear with a Reece Hudson:
My Reece Hudson is a day or night situation so sometimes I wear it with white Supergas, sometimes with black and white Vans and others with a black suede pump from Madewell.
