Style Encounter: Amber Rapicavoli
Name: Amber Rapicavoli
FB - Generation? (I am not asking age, but the generation that defines her style.)
AR - I’ve always found the 1920’s very intriguing - a period of youthful rebellion, individuality and the raw energy of independence – and the fabulous flapper dress! But the 1960’s style generation inspires me most; where iconic fashion emerged from youthful rebellion - mod (sleek & stylish), rocker (leather-clad) and hippie (casual & undefined)!
FB - What brought you to Miami?
AR - Born & raised! What keeps me here -- MI FAMIGLIA!
FB - Charitable, non-profit or philanthropic organization of choice?
AR - Many, but those organizations affiliated with fighting hunger and cancer hit closest to home. My family and I also actively support the Slow Food movement.
FB - Which article of clothing do you begin with when you get dressed? (People swear it's their shoes, others the jewelry; we love variety and inspiration.)
AR - My outfit typically starts with my mood … and then my shoes.
AR - I forget we live in Paradise!
FB - If you were to move, what would you miss the most of Miami?
