1. What would you name your personal style?
I like to think of my style as “quirky ladylike.” I have a penchant for feminine dresses, but I like to mix things up a bit and add in personal touches like fascinators, colorful shoes, and whimsical details.
2. Is there anything you wouldn’t wear?
There’s an awful lot I would never wear…but trends tend to wear me down over time. I’m not interested in harem pants, shredded tees, or overly sexy pieces.
3. Where do you get your outfit inspirations?
The old classic films that I was raised on, like Bonnie and Clyde starring Faye Dunaway. Other bloggers online are another huge inspiration and street fashion sites and books. I first started to really get into fashion with the “Fruits” books featuring Japanese street style.
4. Tell us about your day job?
I guess currently I join the ranks of the unemployed! I just graduated from college less than a month ago and I used to work part-time as a cashier on my campus. Right now I’m “figuring things out.”
5. How much time do you spend working on your blog?
It’s hard to say, probably about two hours go into a post. This includes the time I take to photograph my outfits and upload the images. I end up spending hours just browsing around the web and reading other blogs.
6. What songs/albums are you loving right now?
I can’t get ‘The Hazards of Love’ by the Decemberists out of my head lately. I especially like the haunting lit from the accordion in the song “Isn’t It A Lovely Night?” on that album.
7. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
An unmarried mother; I was quite convinced when I was very little that motherhood was the best route but had no interest in having a man in my life. My parents tried many times to convince me this might not be the best route…
