Symmetry Seven ~ Queen Michelle

Category: Real Girl SpotlightsEyeliah @ 2:00 pm

Fashion rule breaker Queen Michelle of Kingdom of Style is a Style Icon to many if not all.  She has dark mysterious bangs, is a DJ, has a covetable Black Milk leggings collection to flatter her killer legs and a knack for layering the unexpected.  What one wouldn’t give to play around in her closet.  I’ve been reading Michelle and Marie on Kingdom of Style since I first started blogging and they are even sweet enough to put their readers including me onto their blogroll.  Enjoy Michelle’s answers to the Symmetry Seven below.

1. What would you name your personal style?
I tend to always revert back to my punk/metal roots which envariably involves PVC but I do like to try and explore lots of different looks.  But I suppose most people would consider me a rock chick though.

2. Is there anything you wouldn’t wear?
I will try most things it has to be said but I have a well documented aversion to white linen trousers!

3. Where do you get your outfit inspirations?
Music and mood mostly but graphic design, film and old photos of my mum also inspire me. Sometimes I wake up lazy and just chuck on some trashed denim shorts and a band t-shirt – nothing remotely exciting! Working from home makes me lazy too it has to be said.

4. What’s your favorite non fashion hobby?
Probably movies. Most of my spare time, in terms of hobbies, are fashion related in some respect such as sewing, and the blog takes up most of my free time, but when there is spare time I love watching movies – scary ones!

5. How much time do you spend working on your blog?
I’m probably on the computer about 9 hours a day, with about 4 of those hours blog related: researching, taking photos, making things, writing articles, answering emails, doing interviews. So at the moment it’s pretty intensive, although it might not seem like that amount of work goes into it when you look at it.

6. What songs/albums are you loving right now?
I’m really loving these albums just now:
The Kills – Midnight Boom
Arctic Monkeys – Favourite Worst Nightmare
Metallica – Master of Puppets
Danzig – 777 I Luciferi
Silverfish – Organ Fan

7. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a designer from as long as I remembered. I never even entertained the notion that I could be something else, I was so single minded. I wish I had thought of other careers now!

Michelle thank you so much for participating!!

Wow, Symmetry Seven has been around for a year now.
