Girl of the Blogosphere: Nina





Name: Nina

City: Toronto, ON
Occupation: Credit & Collections Manager



Who is your fashion inspiration?
I'm inspired by everyday people with great confidence, and I will always be wowed by Bianca Jagger, Anita Pallenberg, Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin of course.

What is one thing you always carry in your bag?
I carry my notebook, sort of a journal, I tend to jot down my thoughts, ideas, to do lists, quotes, its always with me!

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
I'm on the hunt for an oversized shearling aviator jacket, preferably chocolate brown.

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
I would say harem pants, I'm not a fan of hanging crotch, but I can appreciate the look on some.

Why did you start your blog?
It's a way to express myself and also meet some new friends along the way.

How would you describe your style?

It's hard to say, I will generally try whatever I like, but I'm most attracted to flowy and colorful items with bohemian flare. I do love structure as well and classic pieces like a crisp white button down with jeans, always appropriate.
I don't really want to be defined by one style category, I want to experiment always.






What is one thing you are dying to buy this winter?

Winters in Canada are fierce, and every year is a challenge to find a coat thats warm and fashionable. The search is on as we speak.

What is the most expensive thing you have bought?
Probably shoes


What is the least expensive thing you have bought?
Many thrifted items I've picked up under $10.00

What is one thing that you regret buying?
In the past I've regret buying things that are too trendy, so I try to be conscious and only buy if I can see myself wearing it over a long period of time.



If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
I admire John Galliano, his creative vision, his fearlessness and imagination is mind blowing.

What is your favourite vacation destination?
I can't pick just one place, I'm still discovering the world, there is so much beauty everywhere.

What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?
I love listening to Goth ballads, the poetry is heart wrenching, check it out!
