Girl of the Blogosphere: Kaite

Name: Katie
City: UK
Occupation: Fashion merchandiser/ Buyer at Harley Davidson

Who is your fashion inspiration?
Style on the streets covered so beautifully by Tommy Ton, Scott Schuman and many others. Chloe Sevigny, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Miroslava Duma, Brigitte Bardot and Olivia Palermo. I must add Anna Dello Russo always looks out of this world!

What is your favourite place to shop?
I always love Zara, TopShop and H&M for picking out understated pieces at affordable prices. I also enjoy All Saints for the effortless feel, Reiss for chic pieces, and Selfridges for treats- Alexander Wang, see By Chloe and Chanel are some of my favourites there.

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
With so many trends about it is hard to narrow it down to a particular trend. I find myself drawn to the neutral and pastel palettes in delicate fabrics.

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
I may have said denim on denim- however I have tried this out a few times, and seen it worn so well on others. (Hi-5 to double denim wearers!)

Why did you start your blog?
I have been obsessed with Fashion from the earliest years of my life, and decided to try to make time to share my love with others. I fell critically ill in October after a week in Paris- while still on the road to recovery it has provided a little sanctuary for me and some focus. I hope when I am 100% better my blog will be packed full with more everything!! I would also like to think of it as an opportunity to meet like minded people.

How would you describe your style?
Ever evolving. I always consider proportion, silhouette and elegance...as Coco Chanel once said: "Fashion is architecture. It is a matter of proportions." Summer months see me take a more laid back vibe.

What is one thing you are dying to buy this summer?
A certain pair of black satin Miu Miu's with a chunky heel and closed toe. It was love at first sight.

What is the most expensive thing you have bought?
Probably the Alexander Wang Diego bag. Heaven in the form of a bag. (It's certainly one of the heaviest items I've purchased!!)

What is the least expensive thing you have bought?
When I was 16 I picked up a pair of Gina shoes, and a pair of Russell and Bromley shoes for just £2.50 a pair in a charity shop almost good as new. (It was a wooooohoooooo moment!)

What is one thing that you regret buying?
I have a green suede boxy jacket that I purchased early this year in an H&M in Barcelona. I have a complete love/hate relationship with it due to the boxy cut. (I can't decide it it makes me look chunky?! Eeek!!)

If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
With so many incredible people involved in fashion it is hard to choose. (Okay- I'll be greedy) Karl Lagerfield, Grace Coddington and Viktor and Rolf.

What is your favourite vacation destination?
This totally depends on what I'm looking for. For city breaks and shopping, I adore Barcelona, Paris, and Palma. For pure relaxation, certain parts of Mallorca (the parts not populated by many tourists!) and Italian Lakes.
