Bridge Street: Fashion Q & A with TeNesha Murphy and Sistina Giordano

Bridge Street co-hosts TeNesha Murphy and Sistina Giordano, a local Syracuse favorite, on air daily 10 a.m. on Channel 9, give their views on fashion in this Q and A response.

What does fashion mean to you?

Sistina: For me, fashion is an extension of who I am. I look at it as a way to express myself, and I think that says a lot about a person so I consider it very important.

TeNesha: When I think of fashion, New York City comes to mind. I’ve always thought of “fashion” as something I could never afford or wear. I consider what I wear…clothes. I guess I feel that way because I don’t follow fashion or wear what’s trendy.

How did you get into fashion, did you always have an interest in it?

Sistina: My mother was always pretty particular about what we wore as kids. She valued special days and special outfits for special occasions, so I think that’s where it all started. I’ve always loved fashion, but now I am able to really showcase who I am everyday and for me that’s just as important as showcasing my personality.

TeNesha: I distinctively remember coming home from high school one day and on my bed were 4 outfits I thought my mother had bought for me. Come to find out my mother was out shopping and saw the outfits, thought they would look good on me and bought them. I was shocked at how nice the clothes were and how well they fit me. I think that’s when I fell in love with wanting to dress nice and have the best clothes.

Who is your fashion inspiration?

Sistina: I draw inspiration from Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn and Kate Middleton.

TeNesha: I love Bethenny Frankel’s style, Kelly Ripa, the singer Cassie, a latin TV host Rocsi Diaz.

Do you think that your daughter will get her fashion inspiration from you when she is older? What advice about fashion do you hope to instill in her?

Sistina: I’m not sure what her fashion style is, but I do know that she’s already very much like me in the sense that if something doesn’t look or feel right to her then she doesn’t want to wear it. As for advice I’d give her, I hope to instill in her the importance of always looking your best and also to hold true to your values and ideals when it comes to fashion.

TeNesha: NO!!! She already has great style!! Honestly she gets it from her father. He has a great fashion sense. She tells me what looks good on me and what doesn’t already and she’s 8!

Do you try to keep up with the trends in fashion when planning outfits for Bridge Street?

Sistina: I do. But I pay particular attention to how it will look on me personally.

TeNesha: I don’t. Mainly because we have to buy our own clothes, and I’m all about quality not quantity so I tend to buy expensive pieces, which limits my clothing choices.

How do you feel when an outfit comes together?

Sistina: I feel good and I know when I look good and I know it that I’m instantly more comfortable.

TeNesha: I feel so confident when I know I look good!

What is your favorite color to wear?

Sistina: Black — or probably red.

TeNesha: ORANGE!! It looks so great on my skin tone, and it’s bright! I love wearing bright colors.

Do you think a woman’s confidence is enhanced when she is wearing a great outfit?

Sistina: Yes. Absolutely.

TeNesha: Absolutely!! There’s a saying I like to use from a former NFL football player: if you look good, you feel good…if you feel good, you play good.if you play good, you get paid good…if you get paid good, you live good! That can be applied in all walks of life!
