Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Practical elegance: I am drawn to feminine styles that evoke trends from bygone eras, however, I love to mix such styles with staples such as jeans or a simple v-neck sweater. Also, quality and well-fitted materials are important to me. What I love about “practical elegance” is it can mean something different to everyone. What you find elegant or practical in your daily life, is likely to differ from mine, and that is the beauty of fashion.
WHERE DO YOU LOOK TO FOR FASHION INSPIRATION? WHERE DO YOU DRAW INSPIRATION FROM?
While my roots are quite literally from Europe, I like to believe that my spirit rests there, too. From the Baroque era in France, lemon gardens on the Amalfi Coast, and afternoon tea rituals in England, I find inspiration in every aspect of the European culture. As for their style, I am drawn to it because it captures the essence of the past through the timelessness of designs by Christian Dior or Oscar de la Renta, while incorporating trends we see fresh off the runways and our social feeds.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS THE GREATEST REWARD FROM BEING A FASHION BLOGGER?
Being able to express myself and being part of a community that is filled with creative and inspiring women. Also, whenever I receive sweet messages from my audience, they make my day and I feel so grateful that I have been able to build a platform that inspires other like-minded young women.
WHAT IS A MUST HAVE EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE IN THEIR WARDROBE?
A pair of jeans that flatter her body shape, a simple white blouse or sweater, and a black blazer. Not only can these three items be styled together to create the perfect day-to-night look, however, they are versatile, can be worn during any season, and can be styled with other new-in items.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SEASON FOR FASHION, AND WHY?
I love spring because it is the season of rebirth and renewal. I find that it’s during this time that we have the possibility to reexamine our style and decide how we want to present ourselves. Between the array of pastel colours and the large variety of neutral shades, in my opinion spring fashion is the most elegant and feminine. The weather also gives you the opportunity to still wear your cozy knits and boots, while also beginning to style your first few dresses of the year.
