Girl of the Blogosphere: Popsy

Name: Popsy

City: LondonOccupation: Student
Blog: Popsy

Who is your fashion inspiration?

I'm always inspired by people I see on the streets and how they put things together on a cheaper budget, and crazy woman Anna Dello Russo is my hero! I hope I have the guts to dress like her when I'm older. My mum also dresses beautifully for her age and manages to pull off sophistication like I never can!

What is one thing you always carry in your bag?

I always carry my yellow leather notepad and a pen for scribbling down ideas and thoughts that I get during the day.

What is your current favourite fashion trend?

The polka dots at Marni and Marc Jacobs have made me very happy- wearing polka dots always makes my day a good one!

What is the current trend you dislike the most?

Flared trousers circa the 70's. I don't care how on trend they are, they will always make my legs look like tree trunks.

Why did you start your blog?

I wanted a place where I could openly be 'me' and share my thoughts and aesthetics with other like-minded people. As a schoolgirl where my day is spent learning geography and latin amongst other mind-numbing subjects, it's nice to have a creative outlet where I can indulge in just wearing nice clothes and talking about them.

Who takes your photos for you/ How do your take your photos?

My mum takes my photos, which she is still trying to get the hang of, a lot are upside down or with my head chopped off, but we're getting there! I use my brothers camera, much to his dismay!

How would you describe your style?

Inside I secretly want to be a parisian, who wears catty eyeliner and messy hair a la bridgette bardot, and dresses like pheobe philo. So I guess that's kind of my style, mixed in with vintage and some 60's references.

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

Everything from Miu Miu, plus a black shift dress and some leopard print brogues.

Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?

I'm not really a shoes or a bag kind of girl. I wear minimal accessories because I like simpilcity.

What is one thing that you regret buying?

I can't think of anything I regret buying, because if I buy something but then don't get much wear out of it, I normally DIY it into something else- like a pair of bright pink shoes i DIYed into beige ones with black bows that I am now in love with- I post a DIY every friday on my blog if you're interested!

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

I would love to meet the Rodarte sisters, Kate and Laura Mulleavy. I know it sounds cliched but Rodarte is a brand that literally takes my breath away, I am in awe of them for being able to create such beautiful pieces with such interesting backgrounds and inspirations.

What is your favourite vacation destination?

The beach, but I would also love to visit Sweden because I'm in love with scandinavian interiors, and swedish brands like swedish hasbeens and Acne.

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

I've been obsessed with the idea of owning a dog since I was little-I used to pray to God for one when I was a kid!
