Girl of the Blogosphere: T

Name: T
City: Formerly of Chicago, now living in Greece
Occupation: Self-employed

Who is your fashion inspiration?
I am a big fan of street style, but if I had to name specific women who wear the types of clothes that I am most drawn to, I'd have to say Giovanna Battaglia, Olivia Palermo and Kim Kardashian (I always feel like I have apologize for this last one, but it's true! Ha! I really do like a lot of the individual pieces she wears day-to-day.)

What is your favourite place to shop?
In the States, it's definitely Loehmann's. I hate paying full price and I love finding buried treasure. Here in Greece, I am still getting familiar with the shopping, so I really can't name a favorite (yet!).

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
I am really happy to see leopard print back in the spotlight.

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
I would not be sad if the knee sock thing disappeared forever.

Why did you start your blog?
I started blogging in 2007 as a way to have a little more fun with my writing. I wrote about anything that came to mind related to fashion and pop culture. But after moving to Greece I found myself pretty out of the loop when it came to what was going on back in the States, so in the spring of this year I decided to refocus my blog and turned it into a personal style diary.

How would you describe your style?
I think my style is pretty streamlined, but I like to mix it up with an interesting silhouette, fun pattern, or chunky piece of jewelry.

What is one thing you are dying to buy this summer?
A sleeveless lace dress. I had my eye on one on Shopbop, but I dragged my feet on actually purchasing it and when I was finally ready to hit the order button, it was sold out.

What is the most expensive thing you have bought?
Hmmm ... I think that would be my black Gustto bag.

What is the least expensive thing you have bought?
A brushed stainless steel bracelet for 50 cents at a thrift store in Red Wing, Minnesota about twelve years ago. It was originally one dollar, but the entire store was 1/2 off!

What is one thing that you regret buying?
Honestly, my wedding dress. It wasn't that I didn't like it, I did, I just wish I looked around more before I made my final decision.

If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
Diane von Furstenberg. I want to be her when I grow up.

What is your favourite vacation destination?
Ooo, tough question because my favorite vacation destination used to be where I currently live. But since I now call an island home, I think I would choose somewhere that has a little more of a city feel - maybe Monte Carlo. We went there on our honeymoon and it was fabulous.
