Blogger from United States
Q: Where did you grow up, and where do you live now?
A: The United States.
Q: What have you studied, and what are you doing now?
A: I'm currently studying fashion merchandising and I enjoy blogging about fashion.
Q: How would you describe your personal style in 3-5 words?
A: Mod. Minimalist. And classy with a little bit of edge in the form of leather jackets and leather pants. That's more than 3-5 words. Sorry.
Q: Where do you shop? Luxury or high street? New or vintage? Boutiques? Online?
A: Mostly high street and new from boutiques and chain stores. However, I do love finding good vintage pieces from secondhand stores.
Q: If you had $300 for a shopping spree, how many items would you buy?
A: As many as possible! It would vary depending on what items were on my wishlist at the time.
Q: Do you prefer street style fashion or runway fashion?
A: A combination of both, but I'd say I gravitate towards runway fashion.
Q: What do you splurge on? Skimp on?
A: I always like to splurge on a good handbag, good dresses, and shoes.
Q: When and how did you become interested in fashion, and where do you find your inspiration?
A: I honestly can't even remember when I became interested in fashion. I remember watching "What Not To Wear" (a show in the US in which stylists help people to do away with wardrobes that don't suit them and help them put togethern ew wardrobes) from the very first episode when I was probably about 8 or 9 years old.
Q: Who are your favorite style icon(s)?
A: Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Onassis, Kate Middleton, Taylor Swift, Lupita Nyong'o, and Danielle Bernstein.
Q: What are your favorite fashion blogs? Magazines?
A: weworewhat.com | Vogue| vogue.com | Harper's Bazaar
Q: What do you love about fashion? Not love?
A: I love that it's a creative medium. It's an art form. I love that you can express yourself with it and portray who you are on the inside through it. I love that it can help people to build confidence and feel better about themselves. I don't love the stigma on fashion - that it's a silly pastime or that it's a field for unintelligent women. That couldn't be further from the truth.
Q: Your favorite designers & brands?
A: I don't even know where to start. For brands, my favorites are Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Zara, Topshop (and the other brands they carry), H&M, and Forever 21 carries some good pieces, as well, sometimes. My favorite designers are Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad, Carolina Herrera, Tom Ford, and Dolce & Gabbana.
Q: Do you follow fashion trends? Which ones?
A: I follow some of them, yes. I'm really loving the Adidas Classic Superstar shoes (unfortunately, I haven't been able to get my hands on a pair yet). I like the whole leather pant trend that we saw coming back a bit this past Fall and this Winter. I think faux fur is a super fun trend right now, too. Aside from that, I try to make sure that my wardrobe isn't dated while still maintaining my personal mod/minimalist style.
Q: Do you have any fashion rules when putting an outfit together?
A: No clashing colors or patterns. No teal or aquamarine with red. Ever. On any occasion. No sweatpants or leggings in public.
Q: Which would you be best at? Worst at? (Stylist, Designer, Photographer, Buyer)
A: I think I would probably work best as a buyer or stylist. I think I'd be a decent photographer. I'm not so sure that I'd have the knack for designing.
Q: What is your dream job?
A: An editor for a fashion magazine.
Q: What are your other interests? How do you spend your spare time?
A: I enjoy all types of art, really. I enjoy musicals and studying art and dancing. I the very little spare time I have hanging out with friends and catching up on a bit of blogging.
