Girl of the Blogosphere: Leia



Name: Leia


City: Dhaka, Bangladesh

Occupation: Recent graduate & full-time blogger




Who is your fashion inspiration?
I know this is really cheesy but my mother has always been my fashion inspiration - she always takes fashion risks and doesn't care what people think, and I wish I could be more like that!

What is one thing you always carry in your bag?
Carmex. I have such dry lips!

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
Midi and maxi length skirts. I think they are so feminine and comfortable!

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
Anything '70s inspired. I just don't think that wide-hemmed trousers are flattering! I know that some people feel that in order to be fashionable you have to forget about what looks good on you, but it's important to me to wear clothes that suit my figure than to opt for something trendy.


Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog because I wanted an outlet to share outfits, food, nail art, etc. with people who have similar interests, because the people I know in real life aren't really interested in all that!

Who takes your photos for you/ How do your take your photos?
It varies. Sometimes I take them myself with a tripod, or I ask a friend/relative to take them for me.

How would you describe your style?
Feminine and slightly conservative!

What is one thing you are dying to buy this spring?
A pretty floral dress to wear to garden parties and barbeques.


Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?
I'm a shoe girl at heart, but am very picky about the shoes that I buy, so I've ended up having more bags than shoes!

What is one thing that you regret buying?
I bought a Dior saddle bag a couple of years ago, but ended up just not liking it at all... so I really regret that buy.

I

f you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?


Audrey Hepburn (so predictable, right?) She was just so beautiful, natural, and stylish.





What is your favourite vacation destination?


Definitely London! I lived there for four years and have never in my life spent a summer away from London! It's just the most amazing, vibrant, fashionable city.








What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?


I used to hate fashion up until I went to university! When I went shopping with friends, I used to take a book with me and sit in a corner and read, haha. My 'uniform' for several years was jeans and a fitted top - usually in black or white. How things have changed! ;)

  7. I love a girl who isn't afraid to say she hates the 70s trend-I do, too, at least on myself! A girl who speaks her mind is always the most beautiful!
