Wendy Brandes started her blog Wendy Brandes Jewelry initially to promote her jewelry line. She quickly expanded into writing about high (and low) fashion, books, bloggers and best of all fashion in music. Personal outfits often include signature red lipstick and a killer vintage designer dress, her photos taken on the streets of NYC. Wendy’s writing style is often tongue in cheek providing readers with her humorous view of the world forgoing all political correctness. She has also shared her Words of Wisdom educating readers on why fine jewelry isn’t cheap to manufacture or make custom. See Wendy’s answers to the Symmetry Seven below.
1. What would you name your personal style?
Uncomplicated, with a twisted sense of humor.
2. Is there anything you wouldn’t wear?
Sack dresses don’t do it for me. I prefer sleek.
3. Where do you get your outfit inspirations?
Musical style icons often inspire me: Adam Ant, Debbie Harry, the Beatles in their Hamburg days. My favorite vintage designer, Ossie Clark, was a very rock ‘n’ roll guy. He designed for Mick Jagger.
4. What’s your favorite non fashion hobby?
5. How much time do you spend working on your blog?
Probably 40 hours a week!
6. What songs/albums are you loving right now?
Whip My Hair by Willow Smith. I can’t believe I’m listening to a nine-year-old, but it’s a great song!
7. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A journalist. And I was a journalist for 10 years. Goal achieved.
