1. Tell us a little about yourself.
I've loved style from a very young age, the fashion world has always entranced me. I'd consider my style to be preppy, girly, and classic. I love sharing my style on my blog, it's so much fun and I've really enjoyed my first year of blogging.
I enjoy practicing yoga, photography, shopping, and sailing. I've also been a vegetarian for almost a year, which is one of the most rewarding lifestyle changes I've made.
2. What are you notoriously known for?
My obsession with handbags. I have a shelf covering one side of my room which I display my handbags on, and my friends have dubbed it the infamous "Great Wall of Purses". Anyone who comes over to my house refers to it as "The Great Wall."
3. Who is your number 1 fashion inspiration?
This is hard, since I'm inspired by many people, but I love Kate Middleton's classy style.
4. What made you decide to start blogging?
I'd been reading a few blogs for a couple months (Atlantic Pacific and Classy Girls Wear Pearls, mainly) and it seemed so fun and creative to share your style online. So I thought, "Why not?"
5. What is your personal fashion philosophy?
Keep your heels, head, and standards high. (Coco Chanel)
6. Favorite fashion magazine? Why?
I never tire from looking at the beautiful photo spreads in Vogue. Even flipping through the ads in the front pages makes my happy!
7. What are some of your current fashion obsessions?
I'm currently coveting the entire REDValentino collection. Every piece is so pretty! I also love the feather pieces by Milly.
8. Celebrity crush?
I love John Legend and his music! I've been listening to his album in the car lately.
9. Travel destination on your bucket list?
I'd love to visit Cape Cod, there's nothing like a New England summer!
10. Looking back at this past year, what are some of your greatest accomplishments?
I've been volunteering at my church for years to package meals for schools in Africa. We've done over 50,000 meals for the charity so far, and I'm so proud to have been a part of it.
11. What do you want to achieve in 2015?
I'm really not sure what 2015 had in store yet. But I know that I'd like to make a difference this year, and do something positive. I know that's kind of vague, but I'm still not sure what it'll be. I just hope that it makes me feel good and makes other people feel even better!
12. What type of camera do you use?
I use a Canon 60D 18.0 MP DSLR Camera.
13. Coffee or tea?
14. Champagne, vodka, or tequila?
Champagne (particularly, champagne sorbet).
15. Heels, flats, or boots?
Depends on the occasion and day! But usually, heels, because I'm petite.
16. 90's grungle or 60's glam?
60's definitely. Much more my style!
17. What is your dream job?
I'd love to work for a fashion magazine!
18. Favorite MAC Lip Color?
I love Mac's La Vie en Rouge! But my go-to is Stila "Vivienne" lipstick.
19. What is your signature style?
I love preppy, classy style. My go-to outfit is a cable knit sweater, a string of pearls, and a miniskirt.
20. Go to beauty look?
My everyday beauty routine is subtle winged liner, Stila "Vivienne" lipstick, mascara, and a tiny bit of Benefit highlighter. It's a pretty natural look, but I love throwing in some ruby red lipstick every now and then.
21. Favorite show designer?
Tory Burch, Milly, Kate Spade, and Ralph Lauren. And I love Dolce & Gabanna's runway shows!
22. Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn?
Audrey Hepburn is one of my favorite actresses. (I was Audrey for Halloween!) Breakfast at Tiffany's is my favorite movie.
23. Favorite quote?
Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see. -Mark Twain
24. What is one thing your readers would be surprised to hear?
Oh goodness! I can't really think of anything too shocking off the top of my mind, but I think if I met one of my readers in public, I wouldn't be too much of a surprise, but I probably wouldn't be exactly like they think. Honestly, though, I have no idea!
25. What is it that you hope to achieve in the fashion world?
I'd love to attend fashion week one day! I'd love to watch the show. To meet a designer, style icon, or a fellow blogger seems like it would be amazing!
26. What makes you unique as a fashion blogger?
Every blogger has their own personal style. Some bloggers might wear the same item, but they can style it totally different from each other, and look great in individual ways! I'm inspired by lots of other bloggers, but I love showing my own style in my own special way.
