What sparked your interest in fashion?
I remember having a very strong and independent approach to personal style and what exactly I like when I was just 11 years old. I used to love the idea of going thrift shopping with my mom. I collect every penny in my piggy bank to shop for unique and cute things while I'm accompanying my mom for such thrift ventures. By the age of 14, I knew the worth of owning "unique" pieces. I guess it is only natural for me to be in this industry and enjoy every moment of it.
What is your personal style statement?
A mixture of bohemian, vintage and edgy fashion (I love experimenting!).
What made you take up blogging?
I have been interested in fashion since I was little. I always enjoyed playing with my Barbies, creating new outfits for them and stitching them myself was my favorite passtime. However, I didn't actually consider blogging as a career until about 4 years ago. When I started blogging in the year 2009, it was purely as a platform to display my personal style and to connect with like-minded people.
What would you like to tell all aspiring bloggers?
Know your niche, always choose quality over quantity and always be sincere to yourself.
