When and why did you start your site?
I started my blog in early 2011. I'd been reading other fashion blogs for a long time and always thought it was such an exciting concept; so when I graduated from university, and was searching for work, I decided to start a blog in order to experience with different styles, move out of my comfort zone and find what's right for me. It was a push for me to make an effort and put some thought into what I wore.
How would you describe your site?
I would say it's a diary, but instead of what happens, it focuses on what I wear. A lot of outfit posts. I stay true to my own style, but I also experiment with trends. Other than my outfit post, I share my inspirations, both in the world of fashion and architecture or design. I also post all about my travels, usually tagged under "travel diaries."
Where do you get your inspiration?
I've studied art and design so my inspiration draws from anything or anywhere. Nature is such a big inspiration, because sometimes it brings together colours and textures that we wouldn't even think of putting together. I also keep updated with trends, I love street style blogs or simply watching what people wear on the streets inspire me too.
Who are your style/beauty icons?
Audrey Hepburn is my all time favourite icon. Both her beauty and elegance.
Other than her, I have two style icons: Kate Bosworth and Alexa Chung. I love their effortless but always stylish and chic style.
Describe your personal style.
I like to wear basics, but with a piece that stands out. Currently I'm drawn to dressing in a monochromatic colour scheme, preferably in blacks and greys in my daily outfits. I try to include trends into my outfits when I can.
What was the best style/beauty advice you were given?
Marc Jacobs said: "Always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect - they are much more interesting," and it's always in my mind.
Where are your favourite places to shop?
I'm an online shopper, and it has never failed me. My favourite online store, with affordable prices and great products is asos.com … Although I always want to go and check out/shop from local stores in Vancouver, I always find myself in Zara. I also love vintage shopping, my favourite vintage shop, was a little one in Florence, Italy.
What are your favourite trends for this season?
Oxblood everything (specially leather) and all black outfits.
Style/Beauty Pet Peeve?
What do you never leave home without?
Lip Balm, Eyeliner and my phone.
What are your five essential items that you think every woman should own?
A comfortable, spacious everyday bag. A perfume with a scent thats just right for her. The perfect jeans. The little black dress. Lipstick/lip balm/lip gloss.
Where do you see yourself and your site in five years?
I hope to up the level of the quality in my posts and bring some fun videos in for my readers. I hope to work together with other bloggers and other creative people in the world of fashion.
