Dress Diaries – Quia Querisma

Introducing: Dress Diaries (because every dress has a story).


Style Spotlight:  Quia Querisma, Dallas tastemaker and Rent the Runway devotee.  By day, Quia is a fashion writer for the Dallas Shopping Examiner and regular contributor to the Dallas Observer, but by night she’s a fierce fashionista on the Dallas fashion, arts and entertainment scene.


Daria: When did your love affair with fashion begin?

Quia:  It’s funny because my mom has always been into fashion and would dress me in Liz Claiborne Kids and Jordache jeans.  But I think I first really started paying attention to fashion in 8th grade.  In fact, I spent all of my allowance on clothes.  Bell Biv Devoe was big then and it was all about colorful, urban style.  I remember I wore Reebok Classics and had two different colors and I’d wear one of each at the same time – one was mustard yellow and the other was purple!


D:  Wow.  That’s commitment.  And how would you describe your style today?

Q:  It’s chic but practical and always pulled together.  Like yesterday, I went to meet a friend for lunch and the weather was terrible so I wore my purple pea coat, skinny jeans, tall boots and a newsboy cap.


D:  Who are your favorite designers?

Q:  Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti.  Clothing: Nicole Miller, Karen Millen, Max Azria


D:  Which has been your favorite RTR rental so far?

Q:  The Badgley Mischka Beaded Sweetheart Dress I wore to Kenny "The Jet" Smith's All Star Celebrity Bash during All Star weekend here in Dallas.  It was stunning.


D:  Anything else you want our members to know?

Q:  For anyone who is worried about renting, customer service is always helpful and the process is much smoother than you’d think!
