The Blogger Interviews #1

Hi everyone, it's about time I announce this little mini-project that I've been working on putting together. While bloggers update on almost a daily basis nowadays, sometimes I feel like there's some things they're not talking about because the blogs I read are fashion related! SO, I decided to interview a few bloggers to get to know some other secrets. First up is Wendy Chak from Hand It Over (check it out HERE!). She's adorable, hilarious, and is one of the only bloggers I know who posts editorial pictures with her outfit posts, which gives her readers a little bit of both ends of the spectrum. I asked her a few things I had been wondering about, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

1)What was your favorite outfit as a kid?
I recently discovered three albums with photos of me as a kid. And I must admit that I was a pretty rad little girl. I think I wore a floral white babydoll dress with kickass red mary janes.

2)What inspires you?
I used to be really caught up in following runway shows and seasonal trends, but I've slowly shied away from those. Now I just love looking at streetstyle blogs for real outfits that real people where on a daily basis. Of course I love my share of magazine editorials... French Vogue is bomb.

3) Which blogger would you like to trade wardrobes with for a day?

I am a sucker for good shoes so definitely Jane from Sea of Shoes. Actually, I'd even be satisfied if I could have one pair of shoes out of her grand collection!

4) What’s the best advice anyones ever given you?
Sometimes I feel like blogging takes over my life- with the commitment and expectations. Like a little child, I ranted to my friend Sophie. And she tells me to leave it alone and come back to it when I miss it. That's when I'll know if I love it or not. Can't say the same about clothes though because it might be too late when you finally come back to buy it.

5) Where’s your favorite place to be in the world?
I love where I live because San Francisco is truly a gem of a city. But my favorite place to be would be in Paris, at a small cafe with a cute book in hand and a steaming cup of coffee.

6) Name 3 of your favorite smells?

I'm not too into scents but I must say that I adore guys who smell nice. I think the aroma of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies is delightful. And the scent of tangerines as well as clean laundry.

7) What’s your favorite collection of all time?
This question is really difficult. Can I name a few? Well I really liked Balmain Fall 2009, Philip Lim Summer 2009, and Givenchy Fall 2008.

8) What’s one crazy trend that you want to try to experiment with?
I want to experiment with denim overalls. I know overalls aren't exactly trendy at the moment but at least denim is right?

9) Whats your favorite thing to eat and your favorite restaurant?
I love food. I love eating unagi rolls with avocado. And my favorite restaurant is actually this little tacqueria in the Mission called Cancun. I go there almost once every two weeks.

10) List your top 5 movies.
Lives of Others, English Patient, V for Vendetta, Pan's Labyrinth, Amelie

11) What are some of your best shopping tips?
Go thrifting because its so much cheaper than going to places like Forever 21 or H&M. Plus the items you find are usually more unique and each piece has some sort of history.

12) What’s one thing you haven’t done that you would like to do before you die?
I want to have a backpacking trip down in South America for a month. I really love traveling.
