What/who is your daily style inspiration?

In the mornings, which item of clothing do you start with to build the outfit of the day?
I usually pick my trousers first.
List three things most people would not know about you.
- I can be a workaholic
- I am a perfectionist; and
- I don't like British tea.
Plaid, polka dots or stripes?
I used to think that i had to choose, but i can safely say "all of the above". Being different as allowed to choose, or mix and match either. That's the beauty of styling.
We all have that suit/jacket/pants/shirt/tie color combination that never fails...whats your go to color combination?
After reflection i'll have to say black suit, white shirt, with that I can accessories with any combo.
In an attempt to find you if you went missing, how would your spouse describe your style in 3 words?
I think the future Mrs. Beloni will say, sharp, colorful and sexy!
Do you dress well for you or is it a lasting impression that you want to make on those around you?
Dressing well is who I am. I’ve always been like that to be honest, even if i wasn't always right in my combos.
