Girl of the Blogosphere: Margaret

I'm excited to share a new section of the blog called Girls of the Blogosphere. I think it is important to support other bloggers. Also, I wanted to share some of the girls who inspire me through their blogs. I hope you enjoy!

First Name: Margaret
City: Sydney
Occupation: Student

What is your fashion Philosophy?
To put it simply, Ill say: think ahead. So often I find myself deciding what is aesthetically and characteristically pleasing to me, then seeing it a year later on a New York runway, and suddenly a piece will change from "Hey, that really suits you," to "Oh my god those are so [such and such a designer]" - it's that kind of personal creativity that keeps things snap snap snapping.

Who is your fashion inspiration?
I like to take inspiration in bits from so many different people - so for example, Alexa Chung's legs always look amazing: so I look at her leg wear and shoes. Catherine Baba is another amazing source of inspiration and creativity triggers.

What is your favourite place to shop?
Anywhere, in all seriousness. Before I go looking for something, I always have an idea in my head of exactly what I'm looking for and how it will fit with the rest of my wardrobe...and sadly, I'm the kind of person who won't rest until I get exactly that. There's only been a few times where I've had to go and buy the fabric to make the piece - if you look hard enough, everything is there.

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
Too many, all of which are being confirmed by NYFW
- black platform leather ankle boots
- draped chiffon and jersey
- oversized clutches
- asymmetry name a few

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
Pointing no fingers, but I do hope nobody starts running around in velvet.

Why did you start your blog?
This time last year, after the Jean Paul Gaultier FW10 show, I was raving about the two tone tights (which I still haven't managed to find - so if anyone knows where I can get some, please let me know) for days on end with nobody to appreciate what I was talking about. I guess that's where the blog stemmed from - sharing what I felt was worth sharing, and having people give me their opinions.

How would you describe your style?
I like to think I'm pretty eclectic with my style - maybe not condensed into each individual outfit, but from day to day I'll vary how I approach pieces without thinking about it too much.

What is one thing you are dying to buy this spring?
Well, here in Australia, we're slowly working into the Autumn/Winter time of year. So all my little inspirations for Winter will be on top of my list.

What is your favourite vacation destination?
A few years ago, I did the equivalent of backpacking around Central America (Costa Rica, Nicaragua), obviously at a much younger age - most amazing experience of my life. If you ever get the chance, GO!
