Other bloggers - hands down the most inspiration. I just LOVE to save photos of my favorite girls on the blogosphere, pop them on my desktop, and re-open for inspiration when I'm feeling busted. French starlets like France Galle. Blair Waldorf?
What is one thing you always carry in your bag?
I could probably survive the apocalypse with my purse contents, but these three are most dependably present: lip balm, Blackberry, and travel mug. I like to be constantly caffeinated.
What is your current favourite fashion trend?
High waisted circle skirts. So incredibly flattering and I love me some flounce.
What is the current trend you dislike the most?
I have to say, I just cannot get into those fox tail accessories. I do not get it.
Why did you start your blog?
I jumped on the bandwagon, so to speak! I had been visiting fashion blogs for years, drawing inspiration like crazy, and decided that I wanted to contribute something as well. I love to take photos, so outfit photos were a fun experiment of something new that I've ended up really loving.
Who takes your photos for you/How do your take your photos?
It depends. I have done the majority of my photos myself, with a tripod and self-timer, but as I've become more comfortable with the idea, I've branched out to have some friends, fellow bloggers, and my guy help me out. These always turn out far more animated, which is lovely, but I still sometimes like to go out and spend time with my hobby on my own.
How would you describe your style?
Very feminine. A mix of modern & vintage with quirky details. I like bold signature pieces, and these can change over the years. I also like to mix new with old, and cheap with "expensive" (well, my definition of expensive!).
What is one thing you are dying to buy this spring?
I have a few Spring wishes! I hope I can name more than one... Anything with a scalloped detailing - I am absolutely enamored with some pink scalloped shorts at the moment, as well as some floaty cream dresses. I'm also feeling drawn to simplicity via stripes, neutrals, cigarette pants, and plain black platforms. And statement necklaces - more & more oversized, layered necklaces.
Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?
I wouldn't define myself as either, really. I like shoes and I like bags, but I love hairbands.
What is one thing that you regret buying?
What I refer to as "disposable clothing" - anything cheap and of poor quality that I buy for no good reason whatsoever, wear once (if that!), and throw into the depths of my closet/on the floor. I made a resolution this year to try and stick to buying pieces of structure and quality so that I can build a smaller, but better wardrobe - so far so good!
If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/a fashion icon who would it be?
I'm sure Karl L. would be a trip.
What is your favourite vacation destination?
I have been fortunate enough to visit many parts of the world over the years, but have to say that the south of France was, by far, the most enchanting for me. I have a penchant for ornate details, the ocean, windowsill flowers, strong coffee, and pastries, so really, it was like a dream conceptualized!
What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?
My ears are smaller than many newborn babies.
