The Symmetry Seven ~ Dressed Up Like a Lady

Category: Real Girl SpotlightsEyeliah @ 2:30 pm

Visiting Cammila’s blog is love at first site, with the fitting name Dressed Up Like a Lady as her outfits are always taken to that next level of put together, detailed and always accessorized.  She has a quirky feminine style that rivals our wildest fantasies of how we’d like to dress up mixing pink hair with lots of red, always in vintage and posing like a diva.  She is sweet as pie with all her readers and even inspired my current blue streak.  Below are her answers to the Symmetry Seven.

1. What would you name your personal style? I usually describe it as cinematic. I’m often inspired by characters in movies, but even more so, I just tend to think of outfits as part of a story or character.

2. Is there anything you wouldn’t wear? I probably wouldn’t wear pantyhose over my head. Unless I was robbing a bank.
3. Where do you get your outfit inspirations? I get a lot of inspiration from movies, and I like to take screencaps of really brilliant examples in different films, and keep the images in my inspiration file. Some examples of movies I’ve been hoarding pictures from lately include Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Public Enemies, Paper Heart, St. Elmo’s Fire, some Charlie Chaplin, and Grindhouse.

4. Tell us about your day job? I review movies for a business called AllMovie, which is a division of a larger company called Rovi. Basically, we provide reviews, plot synopses, and other movie info for TV Guide (another division of Rovi), and any other companies that want to pay to use them (like aol, Blockbuster, etc.) I also write random stuff like plot summaries and bios and what not, and I occasionally review CD’s for our music department.

5. How much time do you spend working on your blog? Some weeks, I get to spend tons of time on detailed photo shoots. Other weeks, work is so busy that I’m about two seconds away from asking my cats to upload photos for me.

6. What songs/albums are you loving right now? I’ve been listening to Eat to the Beat by Blondie pretty regularly for the past week or so. I’ve also developed this weird obsession with 70′s and 80′s soft rock, in an interest that quickly escalated from irony, to novelty, to earnest, inexplicable fixation. Also, I got to listen to the Dead Weather’s album today, Horehound, and I’m really excited about it.

7. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? One time, I found a picture that I’d drawn in 1st grade, where the class assignment was to draw what you wanted to be when you grew up. It was divided into two halves, because I couldn’t decide between “Ballerina” and “Game Show Hostess.” So far I’m 0 for 2.

Cammila thank you so much for participating!! :-)
