Girl of the Blogosphere: Khatu




* Originally published April 5th, 2010


Name: Khatu
City: Boston
Occupation: Pencil Pusher/ Trophy Fiancee - kidding!
Blog: I am Khatu



Who is your fashion inspiration?
Paris Hilton, joking of course. The subjects from The Sartorialist's blog. As stated by Scott, his subjects "may not be fashionable but they are stylish." The classic look never goes out of style. When I grow older, I want to dress like them.

What is your favourite place to shop?
Soho, NYC. Shopping in NYC is a whole different experience. I like the diversity and accessibility of Soho. You have shops like Opening Ceremony and Top Shop right around the corner from Guess and Bloomingdales. There's always something for everyone. However, as of lately I've been trying to stay away from the mass-produced market, the mall.

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
Lace, strong shoulders and military. I am probably a tad bit behind on the stronger shoulder look but if Balmain is still making it, then I still want it.

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
CLOGS. What is there to like, they are just plain ugly, period.

Why did you start your blog?
To leave comments and to keep track of blogs I love, but mostly out of boredom. I had signed up for a blogger account months before I worked up the courage to start my own.

How would you describe your style?
Simple and classic. I admire bloggers like Fashion Toast, The Glamouria, Nini's Style, Life-in-Travel, The Haute Pursuit etc., however, it's simply not feasible for me to dress like them; my corporate job is the death of me. I get questions like "What do you do that you have to dress up for?" My answer is "My job is boring, doesn't mean my wardrobe has to be as well." Right? I try to buy pieces I can wear to and outside of work, more bang for the buck.

What is one thing you are dying to buy this spring?
A burberry trench coat. Hopefully it'll go on sale soon. Although I do like nice things, I'm still a sensible shopper. I shop within my limits because credit card bills are never fun.



What is the most expensive thing you have bought?
Shoes that I simply can't afford. What is it with women and shoes?

What is the least expensive thing you have bought?
Mmmh...a pair of shoes from EBay for $12

What is your favourite vacation destination?
Hawaii, but probably because I haven't been to Paris yet.

  23. I like her simple but chic style. You can tell that some bloggers try too hard, but she keeps it natural yet still stylish. I have to agree with her dislike for clogs... never understood that trend.
