Welcome Style Coquettes Amanda Bhandari to POPxo Blog Network and here's a little tete-a-tete with the bright-eyed beauty.
What sparked your interest in fashion?
They say playing dress up begins at the age of five and never truly ends and I guess this quote holds true for me. Fashion for me is an expression of my individuality and the fact that I play dress up till date helps me re-discover my fashion sensibility each day.
What is your first fashion / beauty memory?
It has to be my first Dior dress that my dad got me when I was 10. Believe it or not, about 2 years ago I ended up altering that Dior dress of mine and made a high-waisted tea length skirt out of it
What is your personal style statement?
Let's just say classic yet trendy! I love to play with couture and classic outfits. If you truly love how you feel in an outfit, forget what fashion magazines say and wear it with pride by giving it your own twist
What made you take up blogging?
I started my blog to talk about how one could revamp their pre-owned clothing by bringing in a wave of fun with clothes pushed back in one's very own closet. However today we are not just a DIY fashion blog and have progressed into an online diary which talks about Fashion, Beauty, Food and Fitness .
What would you like to tell all aspiring bloggers?
Don't fear competition, embrace your uniqueness and do what you are good at!! Trust me people will take notice.
