Shop Like a Tastemaker with Mahjuba Levine

The personal fashion stylist and blogger shares her favorite things



Published:

Age: 42

Neighborhood: Bankers Hill

Current job: Personal fashion stylist and blogger

Background: This fashionista with a heart for helping others launched her styling business, Closet Therapy, 15 years ago. She’s since dressed some of San Diego’s elites and been tagged a “top fashion influencer” and “best stylist” for it.

Fashion philosophy: “What you wear is how you present yourself to the world. Make a positive presentation of who you are.”

Personal style: “Extremely simple, because life is hard and getting dressed shouldn’t be.”

 

Her Picks:

”My nutritionist turned me on to Young Living organic essential oils. I especially love the Frankincense oil for my face. It helps lift and tighten my skin to naturally slow signs of aging.”

$97

“Baccarat Rouge 540 is hands-down the most beautiful fragrance by Francis Kurkdijan. It is my signature scent.”

$195

“With many parties and events during the holidays, my wardrobe is filled with lots of sparkle. Anything sequined, like this Tularosa crop top, is a must.”

$188, nordstrom.com

”I have been a fan of belt bags since when they were called ‘fanny packs.’ Now uber-stylish, ones like Gucci’s GG Marmont animal studs leather belt bag are a must-have.”

$1,890

”I found this designer on a trip in Mexico at the Four Seasons. My husband bought me a ring and I have been hooked on Anne Sisteron ever since. I love layering her delicate pieces and mixing them with my other jewelry.”

$770

Diptyque candles are the best! The luxurious scents take me back to summers in Paris. I keep one in every room and can smell the beautiful fragrance without even lighting the candle.”

$34

Vita Kin is a Ukrainian designer who has gained worldwide popularity with her eponymous label. She uses the traditional Ukrainian embroidered style, vyshyvanka, to create authentic dresses and blouses. I love the bohemian yet modern style.”

$1,870, matchesfashion.com

“I am quite cautious about what I eat and put into my body, and the same goes for wine. The Secco Wine Club delivers bottles to my door every month that are grown from grapes by the Old World organic process—0 percent added sugar and chemicals.”

Membership prices vary

“This season, red is the ‘it’ color. Which is why I love Valentino’s velvet bow sandal for the holidays… and the ultra-sexiness.”

$795, neimanmarcus.com

 

“I have cozy pillows and fuzzy throws all over my house. The faux fur throws from Restoration Hardware offer style and warmth.”

$189
