Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?
I am a 24-year old fashion lover that lives in Los Angeles with my husband. Originally, I am from Germany but I moved out to LA about 3 years ago. When I’m not working on my blog I’m a social media manager. I live and breathe social. One last thing I love the color pink and anything that has to do with pink.

If you could sneak into anyone’s closet whose would you peek at?
Definitely Carry Bradshaw! I love high heels and anything with tulle. When it comes to style I like to think outside the box and I feel she best illustrates that.

What style rule do you always follow?
I don’t follow any style rules. In my opinion fashion does not have rules.

What is your favorite quote?
“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” -Marylin Monroe

What inspired your blog?
I loved fashion and at one point I thought to myself I have so many beautiful clothing items, which are not super expensive so why not start my own blog and inspire others. My blog demonstrates how to be unique and fun without breaking the bank.

Three things that are always in your purse?
Lipstick, hand lotion and my cell phone

Where do you find inspiration for blog posts?
Truthfully my closet inspires my looks. I try to be unique in what I wear so all I do is look inside my closet and think of what can be fun for today and beyond. I find that style is a creation of your own persona and no one can really inspire my style but myself.

Best style advice you’ve ever given or received?
Be yourself.

What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion is so much more than just clothes. It is a way you communicate without saying a single word. It is how other people see you or how you want to be seen by others. What I love most about fashion is that you can dress depending on your mood. One day I feel like wearing heels the other days I grab my sneakers.

In your opinion, what separates a great blog from an unsuccessful blog?
The difference between a successful and an unsuccessful blog is the passion and effort you put into writing and creating the content. If you start a blog only to get free things you will end up being unsuccessful. In my opinion you should start at blog because you love what you do and you wanting to inspire others. A blog should be built for the gain of others and not your own.

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?
I’m originally from Chicago but recently moved out west to Los Angeles to start my legal career in digital media. I went to college in Arizona (bear down Wildcats!) and then went back to Chicago for law school. I started blogging on the side as a way to create a digital diary of my adventures through life!

If you could sneak into anyone’s closet whose would you peek at?
I would totally sneak into Kristin Cavallari’s closet! I feel like she would have an epic shoe closet and shoes are my weakness. And if I she weren’t a TV character, I’d totally rather sneak into Carrie Bradshaw’s closet!

What style rule do you always follow?
The best accessory you can ever wear is confidence!

What is your favorite quote?
You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.

What inspired your blog?
I was looking for a creative outlet in order to distract myself from all the crazy things that happen in life. I love fashion and wanted to work in fashion law so I figured the perfect way to express my passion was through a blog.

Three things that are always in your purse?
Nude lipstick, sunglasses (usually a pair of flash lens aviators), and travel size perfume

Where do you find inspiration for blog posts?
I find my inspiration from everywhere! Lately, I’ve been getting a ton of inspo from the people that I follow on Instagram.

Best style advice you’ve ever given or received?
Know how to dress for your shape. I’m short so there are some pieces that I love that I know would not flatter me at all. As much as I’d still love to wear them, I won’t because they don’t fit me properly.

What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion means expressing who you are to the world by what you choose to wear. Each outfit is a representation of some part of you.

In your opinion, what separates a great blog from an unsuccessful blog?
Passion. If someone is not passionate about his or her blog, it shows. Blogging takes a lot of time, energy, patience, planning, etc. If your heart is not in it, there is no way to be successful.
