Girl of the Blogosphere: Diya

Name: Diya
City: Austin, TX
Occupation: Chemical Engineering Student

Who is your fashion inspiration?

Alexa Chung, Abby Lee Kershaw, and Karla (Karla's Closet). They don't inspire me in the sense that I want to wear exact what they wear, but I love that they have fun about clothes without worrying about the trends too much.

What is one thing you always carry in your bag?
Other than the normal essentials (keys/wallet/etc) I always carry mineral pressed powder.

What is your current favourite fashion trend?

Lace & leather combinations

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
Kitten heels with pointy toes

Why did you start your blog?
I was bored at the time (it was during xmas break) and I wanted to show that people with a science career path can dress up too.

How would you describe your style?
Lots of detailing, lots of neutrals, and overdose of jewelry

What is one thing you are dying to buy this winter?
Nothing in particularly...I do want to find the perfect black lace slip dress eventually though.

What is the most expensive thing you have bought?
Um... probably my Leonello Borghi purse. $200 ish but the original price was something like $1250...

What is the least expensive thing you have bought?
I have a lot of things from Savers that were 99 cents. One of which is this awesome blazer still with the Nordstrom's price tag on it marked $150.

What is one thing that you regret buying?
A lot of stuff that were "so cheap not to buy." We've all been there...haha.
If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
I really want to meet Garance Dore!!! She so cute.

What is your favourite vacation destination?
I like San Francisco and NYC in the United States but I would think Greece would ideal for vacations....

What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?
I guess that I'm pretty much a Youtube fiend.
