you've got questions, i've got answers (pt. 1)


Here is part one of my answers to all of your guys' questions on my q&a post! Hopefully you guys will feel like you know me a little better after this...

can you describe your own style? I tend to stick to classic pieces with kind of a crunchy/hippie vibe. My uniform these days is a dark pair of jeans, a stripey shirt, and some sort of comfy sweater with boots or Toms.
why did you start this blog? Since I started using the internet and seeing inspiring pictures, I’ve been saving the ones I love the most to my computer. Basically I started to feel overwhelmed by the amount of inspiration photos that I had gathering dust and filling up my hard drive, so I decided to start a blog where I could both have an outlet to interact with people who love fashion as much as I do, and an emptier hard drive.
who's your favorite model? Right now Anna Selezneva.

favorite designer? Probably Miuccia Prada and Jack and Lazaro from Proenza Schouler.
haircolour?mine? It’s brown and long and wavy.
do you wear high heels often?Almost never! I live and go to school in a place where it’s more cracked pavement and steep inclines than nice flat sidewalks, so on a daily basis I go for flats.
my question is what's your reason why you started blogging? It’s an amazing community and the absolute best outlet for me.
whats your biggest inspiration? Right now I feel inspired by Santa Cruz 1)because I live here, 2)because of the beachy/woodsy attitude here, 3)the streetstyle, 4)the redwooooooooods.
how old are you? I turned 19 in July.
when did your intrest in fashion start? My mom got me into it when I was in 7th or 8th grade. We would read issues of Vogue together and it kind of snowballed from there!
Are any of your friends or family as into fashion as you are? Ohhh yeah. One of my best friends and I went to meet the Sartorialist in SF and plenty others read blogs and love getting dressed in the morning.
What blogs do you look at? Too many to list here but my favorites right now are Annabu, Garbage Dress, Garance Dore, Panache, Anniemal, and Di$count
whats you favorite item of clothing/ shoe/ jewlery/ furniture ect.? My Robert Clergerie’s that I posted about a month or so ago!
what kind of music do you listen to? Kind of a weird combination of things. I love Biggie because of my boyfriend but I also like more alternative music like Animal Collective and Feist. Anything catchy with a good beat.
if you could live anywhere where would it be? I really love California, but I wouldn’t mind living in Paris for a few years..
Where are you from? I moved around a lot when I was younger, but I call San Diego my hometown.
Can we see a picture?

whos your style icon? Chloe Sevigny and Dree Hemingway
i'd like to know your favorite places to shop, favorite article of clothing.There’s this one store where I live where everything is 50 percent off, EVERY DAY. I’ve scored some gems there for extremely ridiculously should-be-illegal cheap, that’s definitely my favorite right now, especially on my budget!

would you say your style is original?I’m sure there are people who have dressed like me before, but according to my friends I have my own look so if not original, I would say it’s very me.
If you could hang out with any designer for an afternoon, who would it be? Too hard! But probably Alexander McQueen. I have a feeling that would be so fun.(just wanted you guys to know I answered this one before today's tragic events...he will be very sorely missed RIP Lee..)
If you could hang out with any fashion industry professional (ie editor, stylist, photographer, even model, etc.) for a night on the town, who would that be? It’s a tie for first. Garance Dore and Scott Schuman, double date!
If not working in the fashion industry, what do you want to do with your life when you graduate?I’m majoring in Literature and doing as much as I can to learn French so I’m hoping I can travel and write and learn about things I love. Not really sure where I’m headed exactly though..
Who inspires you, not just stylistically, but in general?A lot of other bloggers and their aesthetics are really inspiring to me, it’s what keeps me coming back for more!
If you could swap closets with any fellow blogger who would it be? Maybe Annabel from Blushing Ambition or Jane from Sea of Shoes. Or maybe am-lul. Or the cherry blossom girl. I’m way too indecisive.
Where do you find most of your pictures? Literally everywhere. I save them right away and half the time forget what website which image came from, so I get confused a lot but I guess tfs and a tonnn of blogs for the most part.
What is your favorite magazine?British Vogue! Bible.


  1. Loved this! It's fantastic that you and your mom read vogue together.

    Just wanted to let you know that I've created a page for your blog on Wikifashion. You can get more info about it on my blog and we've made little badges for you to put on your blog :)

  2. Oh, I would LOVE to go on a double date with my boyfriend and Garance and Scott! GREAT idea!

    If I could swap closets with a blogger...it would be Caroline Blomst of Stockholm Street Style/Caroline's Mode. We have such the same tastes.

    I love your blog, but the way! I do a little bit of modeling for fun, and the editorials you post are always so inspiring for me and the photographers I work with!
