Customer portrait - Daida 💖

We continue to give you an insight into how some of our customers found us, what they love about the vintage style and what they pass the time with during the shutdown. Read here about lovely Daida.

Name : Daida

Age : will be 41 tomorrow :-) (Congratulations from us ed.)

Occupation : Regional Director in a global advisory company

Hi Daida, what are you running around doing these days?

I work with advising companies on what concerns their mobile employees.

I am responsible for the quality of our services, so I tend to travel a lot, I am in contact with many people both in Europe and in the USA and these days that work has moved into my dining room. There I sit in front of my laptop typing away and talking even more :-)

In addition, I teach, I am a mentor for a young student and I have started taking online classes myself.

In addition, I am super happy to go for long walks, drink coffee outside, the bit you can these days. In short, I try to reduce deprivation for my life on the go and fill the time with everything I don't otherwise find time for.

Where do you get your inspiration for your particular style?

I've always been a huge fan of old Hollywood glam, which in my eyes never goes out of style. I love when you recreate looks from the 40s and 50s in movies and series and I wish we all went dressed like that :-)

How did you find out about Mondo Kaos?

In my daily life, the business look is the thing and I have always tried to spice up that look with colors, especially silk blouses with pussy bows were very popular in my wardrobe. I wanted to add more retro to my clothes, so I started searching the web.

When I found Mondo Kaos I knew it was something special, so I rushed down to the store. There I met Kirstine and there she was, the living Marilyn. Since then I met Stine and all the other Mondo ladies who live their retro look every day and I haven't looked back since.

Here is Daida's style

What is it about Mondo Kaos that makes you shop with us?

The Mondo ladies are all good at capturing my aesthetic and therefore I have complete confidence that I will know if something is "me" or if it is something "completely different" or if I absolutely love an outfit , but doubt whether I wear it... then Kirstine and Stine are just worth their weight in gold in that situation.

So the combination of that celebration of the female silhouette and the female form through the many beautiful, elegant and downright sexy outfits, the amazing guidance that takes my aesthetic into account, all of which results in me loving the confidence boost it gives me after a trip past Mondo Kaos.

If you had to give women three great styling tips, what would they be?

1. LBD, your go-to outfit that you always combine with statement shoes, e.g. gold, silver, visible accessories and red lipstick

2. don't be afraid of colors, but learn how to combine the colors effectively

3. balance your look, keep part of your clothes loose and the rest tight, according to your body type

Gold shoes from Nordic ShoePeople
Hair flower
Silver shoes with heels from Miss L Fire

Gold shoes, silver shoes and visible accessories are Daida's styling tips

Estelle pussy bow shirt
The little black pencil dress
Swing skirt in teal

Don't be afraid of colors, LBD/ the little black is a must-have, and wear loose and tight according to your body type

Many thanks to Daida for taking the time to answer questions for our customer portrait. We hope you were inspired.

Best wishes,

Team Mondo Kaos❤
