Who is your fashion inspiration?
The Paris Vogue team never gets it wrong. Emmanuelle Alt especially is just amazing, as is Melanie Huynh.
What is your favourite place to shop?
I love Maude Vintage, here in Columbia, as well as Yoox.com. Nothing's better than discount designer shoes.
What is your current favourite fashion trend?
The 80's shoulders, though I suppose they're now "out". pfft.
What is the current trend you dislike the most?
I don't love obvious logos. Why must you have "Abercrombie" stretched across our breasts? (Though I cannot say that if Chanel made a similar shirt [ironically, I hope], that I wouldn't wear it).
Why did you start your blog?
I'm taking a semester off, so I thought what better time to focus my energy on something I've been thinking about for a while?
How would you describe your style?
I'm still experimenting, but I hope it's growing in an interesting way. I'd rather be interesting than what most people think of as 'in fashion', I think, though I guess both would be cool.
What is one thing you are dying to buy this spring?
White Jeans + Cheetah Print Platforms. I still regret not buying the Ashish for Topshop pari when I had the chance. I know thats two, but they would go amazing together.
What is the most expensive thing you have bought?
Probably my Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. Its stained right now, hence why I haven't debuted it on the blog, but if anyone knows any great leather cleaners, let me know!
What is your favourite vacation destination?
Back when I was 14 or 15 my Dad took me to Spain with a group of his students, and that was so beautiful. Plus there was some very cool shopping...too bad I was too young to really make the most of it.
