You may know Luanna Perez-Garreaud from her blog Le Happy. She has this edgy, mysterious aura and we have been dying to ask her some questions of our own. One glance at her pink and crimson locks and you'll be stalking her Instagram for a good hour and a half. Her moto jacket, 90's apparel, & jewelry obsession is so apparent in all of her posts and we obsess over it all. We're also stoked that our mutual girl crush is Brigitte Bardot. Lucky us, we had the chance to chat with this NYC babe about everything from her perfect date night to style tips and more!SEVEN AND SEVEN Sweater
What does a normal day look like for you?
Wake up to coffee, read emails, check the weather and get dressed! Then I just do what is in my calendar. Normally morning meetings, press previews or just go to the city to shop for potential posts. Every other day I shoot with my photographer (boyfriend) and edit/work on my blog posts.
The fact that I don’t have a definite schedule. It seems like a dream (I really can’t complain) but it gets a little overwhelming sometimes, when you have so much and you work from home, some days I can work for 20 hours straight and I don’t have someone to stop me!
Best part about your job?
Same as above, I do love having my own schedule and setting up my routine.
What was your first job?
I was a hostess at this high tier restaurant, then I was a manager at an art direction school!
What is your favorite restaurant in NY?
So many to pick from! I love a lot of restaurants in Brooklyn though. Cafe Colette, Sugarburg, Simple Cafe to name a few.
Where do you go for inspiration?
Everywhere and anywhere! I try to remember the things that I find aesthetically pleasing, and then try to incorporate them to my style. Could be an old lady in the streets rocking a vintage outfit, or a 15 year old boy with a cool laid back style.
What is your perfect date night?
I just love going to different bars around Brooklyn, and enjoy a little of each, I think its the most fun way to have a very dynamic night!
What is your current favorite song?
Quiet - This Will Destroy You
Salt - Oren Ambarchi
Favorite TV show?
All time: Breaking Bad and True Detective
Favorite place you've traveled to?
I will never forget my trip to Bermuda, it was a freaking dream
Current nail color?
Surprisingly red. I never wear red but yesterday I felt like trying it again. I’m not sure if I like it! I normally go for muddy purple or dark burgundy.
Current beauty product obsession?
Kryolan Satin Luminizer, its AMAZING
What are your style tips?
Don’t over think too much, my best outfits are those that I put together in seconds. Im that girl, I can get changed ten times and then go for the first outfit I tried!
Always try something new, thats how your style will evolve! You will have much more fun with clothes because you allow yourself to play around.
Never pick something because of the brand. Its about how it suits you, how you look, how do you like it and why it inspires you. Brands are cool, but it should’t be the main reason of your purchase.
Favorite trend right now?
Although I don’t usually go for it, I love oversized everything trend… it makes dressing on those lazy days way easier
I personally don’t like wide legged cropped pants, they are a bit unflattering for my taste.
Who is your girl crush?
Forever in love with Brigitte Bardot!
What is something you can't leave the house without?
Lipstick and my phone.
