Our Winning Blogger: Lacey Maffettone
Posted on July 23 2012
Lacey Maffettone of A Lacey Perspective, certainly proved what a multifaceted blogger she is by winning our “Versatile Blogger Contest.” As a young professional in Washington D.C. pursuing a career in politics, Lacey refuses to sacrifice her style to get ahead in her conservative environment. This driven young lady is also the co-founder of CapFABB (Capital Area Fashion & Beauty Bloggers), a community for like-minded fashion bloggers in the DC area to come together. With over 400 members already, Lacey has proven to be a trail-blazer. Publications like The New York Times, Lucky Magazine, Refinery 29, and the Washington Post DC Scout have been forced to sit up and take notice.
Her lifestyle is what attracted her to Jia’s designs, which cater to the needs of modern women. Inspired by how this force-to-be-reckoned-with manages to juggle so much while remaining picture perfect, we had to get to know her better. After her big win, we spoke to Lacey to get some tips from this authority on infusing style into our busy lives.

Tell us about your winning looks. What made you chose the pieces you used to accessorize?
My four winning looks were for day and night. I tried to focus on really showing the flexibility of this awesome Jia piece by dressing it for 9-5 and cocktail hour.
How would you describe your style and how do Jia’s designs fit with your aesthetic?
I typically describe my style as feminine, classic and glamor. Jia fits perfectly into that because I can take it from a classic 9 to 5 look right to a glamorous look to wear to an event at night.
What is one beauty product that you absolutely could never live without?
I could never live without my Clarisonic. Absolute game-changer for my daily beauty routine.
If you could pick one ultimate style secret to share with your fans, what would it be?
It isn’t about the size of the piece you are wearing it is about how that piece fits. The moment you step away from worrying about going from a 4 to a 6 and realizing that that 6 is what flatters you more and in fact makes you look smaller, you will be happier with the way you look in the mirror.
We personally couldn’t agree with this more! It is always more flattering when women embrace their shape and dress for their size.
And of course I have to ask, what are you going to buy with your contest winnings?
That is a tough question… I am heading to NYFW in a month so I am on the hunt for pieces that will compliment my week in the big apple.
