Girl of the Blogosphere: Amber

Name: Amber

City: West Hartford

Occupation: Paralegal

Who is your fashion inspiration?
I don't have a single person to whom I aspire to replicate but rather inspiration from many folks especially fellow bloggers and try to weave those inspirations into my schizophrenic style.

What is one thing you always carry in your bag?
Carmex, nobody likes chapped lips.

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
I love seeing all the crochet clothing popping up. Since I find myself gravitating towards 70's fashion right now, this trend is right up my alley.

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
Belt Purses. It's a glorified fanny pack!

Why did you start your blog?
I had recently moved from New York to a small town in Connecticut and found making friends to be a real challlenge. I started my blog to make connections with people and to give myself a creative outlet so as to not die of boredom. :)

Who takes your photos for you/ How do your take your photos?
My husband graciously takes my photos. He is a real trooper.

How would you describe your style?
Schizophrenic, really it is. One minute I am all about full skirts and pearls and the next I want to throw on wide leg jeans and a floppy hat.

What is one thing you are dying to buy this spring?
The perfect pair of wide leg jeans. Being a short gal, this has become a real challenge.

Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?
Shoes, all the way! Is that a real question?!?

What is one thing that you regret buying?
A neon yellow bomber jacket. I don't know what I was thinking. It looks good on no one.

If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
I think that would have to be Charlotte Gainsbourg.

What is your favourite vacation destination?
I haven't been to a lot of places but I did just get back from Prudence Island in Rhode Island and absolutely loved it.

What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?
I have seriously delicious ninja skills.
