Employment: Regional Director in a global advisory company
Hi Daida, what are you running around doing these days?
I work with advising companies on what pertains to their mobile employees.
I am responsible for the quality of our services, so I usually travel a lot, am in contact with many people both in Europe and in the US and these days that work has moved into my dining room. There I sit in front of my laptop and type and talk even more :-)
In addition, I teach, I am a mentor to a young student and I have started taking online tuition myself.
In addition, I am super happy to go for long walks, drink coffee outside, the little one can these days. In short, I try to reduce deprivation for my life on the go and fill the time with everything I otherwise do not find time for.
Where do you get your inspiration for your particular style?
I have always been a huge fan of old Hollywood glam, which in my eyes never goes out of fashion. I love when recreating looks from the 40s and 50s in movies and series and I wish we all went dressed like back then :-)

How did you get to know Mondo Kaos?
In my daily life, business look is the thing and I have always tried to spice up that look with colors, especially silk blouses with pussy bow were in high demand in my wardrobe. I kind of 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 hurried 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 since then I have not looked back.
Here's Daida's style
What is it about Mondo Kaos that makes you shop with us?
Mondo ladies are all good at capturing my aesthetics and therefore I have full confidence that I will be told if something is "me", or if it is something "completely different", or if I am completely crazy about an outfit , but doubt if I carry it ... then Kirstine and Stine are just worth gold in that situation.
So the combination of the celebration of the female silhouette and the female form through the many beautiful, elegant and just right sexy outfits, the amazing guide that takes my aesthetics into account, all of which result in me loving the confidence boost it gives me after a walk past Mondo Kaos.
If you were to give women three great styling tips, what would they be?
1. LBD, your go-to outfit that you always combine with statement shoes such as gold, silver, visible accessories and red lipstick
2. Do not be afraid of colors, but learn how to put the colors together effectively
3. Balance your look, keep some of your clothes loose and the rest tight, depending on your body type
Gold shoes, silver shoes and visible accessories are Daida's styling tips
Do not be afraid of colors, LBD / the little black is a must-have, and use loose and tight depending on body type
Many thanks to Daida for taking the time to answer questions for our customer portrait. We hope you were inspired.
