Blogger, Stylist from Wollongong, Australia
Q: Where did you grow up, and where do you live now?
A: I was born in a city called Wollongong, about an hours drive south of Sydney. I then moved to Canberra when I was about 5, then back to Wollongong again when I was 10 & am still living there now.
Q: What have you studied, and what are you doing now?
A: My final year in High School I studied a broad range of subjects such as Chemistry, Visual Arts and Ancient History. When I left school I also did Biology and Physical Development. Am currently working two retail jobs, one at a clothing and surf gear store called Surf Dive n Ski, and I also manage my Father's Cinema Library (Video Store).
Q: Links to your style networks?
Q: How would you describe your personal style in 3-5 words?
A: Eclectic, economic,
Q: Where do you shop? Luxury or high street? New or vintage? Boutiques? Online?
A: Working in a clothing store; and receiving a staff discount I now tend to buy a lot of my clothes from Surf Dive n Ski, but I also love stores such as Cotton On and websites like Missguided who provide trending high-end copy pieces for affordable prices.
Q: If you had $300 for a shopping spree, how many items would you buy?
A: As many as I can!! I am a sucker for a sale and an absolute bargain queen!!
Q: Do you prefer street style fashion or runway fashion?
A: I love both, but would have to say I prefer street style as it is more wearable and obtainable.
Q: What do you splurge on? Skimp on?
A: I am not a huge "splurger" as I usually shop sales to get the best prices, but one of the things I can't help myself buying would be shoes!! Whether its heels or sneakers, a girl can never have too many shoes.
Q: When and how did you become interested in fashion, and where do you find your inspiration?
A: I think I have been interested in fashion since I was about 13 when I started blogging and collecting fashion magazines; seeing different styles and fashions from all around the world. I tend to get my inspiration from online; whether it be Tumblr, online shopping, Instagram pages.
Q: Who are your favorite style icon(s)?
A: I'm not sure I really have one? I love so many different styles, tastes and "genres" of fashion that it's hard to pinpoint just one!
Q: What are your favorite fashion blogs? Magazines?
A: Using Tumblr I tend to just reblog anything and everything that catches my eye and that I like!.. As for magazines I used to ritually read RUSH, Frankie, Yen and of course Vogue.
Q: What do you love about fashion? Not love?
A: I love that there are (mostly) no rules in fashion; if you like it, wear it! I don't like how in mainstream clothing stores there is still a quite big 'gender gap', I think anyone should wear whatever they love and feel comfortable in.
Q: Your favorite designers & brands?
A: I usually stay away from big brands & designers; only working in retail I don't have a huge bank account to use!
Q: Do you follow fashion trends? Which ones?
A: I do and I don't.. I don't like to only stick to whatever is trending, but I definitely take bits and pieces that I like.
Q: Do you have any fashion rules when putting an outfit together?
A: Not really; anything goes! (as long as it looks good!)
Q: Which would you be best at? Worst at? (Stylist, Designer, Photographer, Buyer)
A: I think I would be best at being a Stylist! I love putting different pieces in my wardrobe and at work together to come up with different outfits! Worst would probably be a Designer, I can draw but am a perfectionist and can't sew!
Q: What is your dream job?
A: Would have to say a stylist/fashion blogger!
Q: What are your other interests? How do you spend your spare time?
A: A few of my other areas of interest include science, watching films & TV shows, photography and drawing. I usually spend any spare time I get with my boyfriend, friends & family... And blogging of course!
