Fabulously put together OOTDs, cool DIY posts and videos, and chic styling suggestions - these are what drew us towards Shaily Khera’s blog Confessionz Of A Closet.
Shaily is a stylist and blogger based out of New Delhi, and is passionate about everything fashion related. As she joins the POPxo Blog Network this month, we asked her a few questions to get started. Read on...
What sparked your interest in fashion?
It was a profession I got acquainted with from childhood. My dad started his garments business when I was really young and it has been more than two decades now. Clearly my family wasn't surprised when I told them that I want to give up my career in PR & celebrity management to pursue an MSc in Fashion.
What is your first fashion/beauty memory?
I don't really remember when, but as I have already mentioned, fashion was always there. Even as a kid I would discuss trends and designs with my dad . I remember dressing up and asking my dad for his approval. He still is my biggest fashion critic and I still ask for his approval each time I step out.
What is your personal style statement?
My personal style statement is very simple and laid back. I am someone who has worn tees to fashion events. The trick is to know how to dress it up, or down when required.
What made you take up blogging?
It just happened one fine day, and I am glad it did. It has been more than 4 years now and it's the most consistent thing in my life.
What would you like to tell all aspiring bloggers?
Just sign-up on blogger/wordpress and get started. It is actually that simple :)
