Who do you admire as a blogger?

My all time favorite fashion blogger is Claire Sulmers. Not only is she beautiful, it is so inspirational to see someone you admire achieve all of their dreams. It makes it more of a reality that I can achieve my dreams.

What does beauty mean to you?

To me, beauty is confidence. It is the best accessory to have. Confidence doesn’t care what other people think about you. Confidence allows you to own your flaws and mistakes. This is a beauty.

When did you realize you wanted to become a stylist/blogger?

While in college I worked as a stylist. When you’re young, and your parents are paying for college, they don’t always believe in the “freelance” lifestyle. My mother wanted me to pursue a degree in education or something credible. Because of this, I gave up styling and got my degree in Television and Radio. My passion for fashion remained with me throughout the years. Late last year I decided to start a fashion blog highlighting affordable fashion. Everyone wants to look good, but no one wants to spend an arm and a leg. People also tend to confuse high-end labels with having style. I wanted a platform to show women that you don’t have to spend money on labels to look good. Better yet, I will show you how and where to stop for great looks under $100.

 

What sets you apart from other bloggers?

My blog is not just about me. I love to highlight other fashionistas. I also enjoy recreating celebrity looks and highlighting celebrity fashion. I enjoy putting looks together that celebrities recently wore.
Who are your ideal clients? My ideal client is a working woman on a budget. She works hard, plays harder and likes to look good while doing it. My ideal client doesn’t care if her pants are from Gucci, The Gap or The Salvation Army. She wears each item of clothing with confidence.

Your wishlist clientele would include?

I would love to style Christina Milian. I think she’s a beautiful woman that would stand out more with the right statement pieces. I’d also like to style Rita Ora. I love her style, but proper tailoring can tie her looks together.

What matters to you most as bloggers?

What matters to me most as a blogger is positivity. I will never give negative feedback as a blogger. I want to highlight and empower women. It is not possible to do that by tearing down someone’s style or fashion choice. If I do not agree with what they’re wearing, I will not blog about it. Momma said it best, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
What advice do you have for aspiring bloggers? Don’t stop because you don’t get the response you expect. I find most bloggers start strong and slowly trail off. The key to blogging is consistency. Whether you know it or not, you’re slowly building an audience. People begin to look forward to your blog post. When you stop, they miss you. Be consistent!
Must have beauty and makeup items to have? I’m not a makeup junkie but I cannot leave home without lipstick and concealer.

Personal Style Questions

Favorite stores to shop (online etc.)?

I only do my shopping online! I’ve mastered it. I rarely shop online boutiques, and I never shop department stores. I frequent Forever 21, Zara, Boohoo, MotelRocks, Misguided, The Gap, your basic everyday retailers. The key is finding the hidden gems and styling them

How would you define your personal style?

I’m not too sure how to describe my personal style. I like different things. I love to take a basic item and add a statement piece to it to make it pop. I’m not too flashy. I love mixing prints and patterns. I wouldn’t be able to sum up my style into a category. It’s a big mixture of everything. Overall, I love the crisp look.

What’s your favorite fashion accessory or a necessity ?

I stand all at 5 feet. I will never leave home without heels! It is a necessity. Heels and a bold lipstick and I am ready to take on the world!

What are your top 3(or more if you want) essential clothing staples?

For a man and woman. For a woman, you need a pair of pumps! I would say a bold pair rather than a basic black or tan. A blazer and a pair of skinny jeans. For a man, a white tee, a gold watch and pair of casual shoes.

What is your most prized material possession?

My phone! How else will I take selfies?

Favorite Quote, advice to others?
My advice to others is “do what works for you” when it comes to your personal style. Do what fits your mood, your personality, your body type and your budget! It can be hard at times with social media, etc. to do so but you will find that you are most confident and comfortable when you are true to yourself.
