One of my favorite things about blogging is the warm and welcoming feeling of community. If you’re anything like me, you have a long list of go-to reads that you check religiously (hopefully mine is one that’s on your regular circuit!). The other blogs I read are written by totally cool chicks, with spot-on style, gals I just know I’d love to be friends with and know more about! So here’s a peek, my lovely readers, at the other rad girls that inspire me daily.
Starting things off right…Breanne of Flattery. Our neighbor to the North, Breanne, is probably best known for flaunting her fashionable threads amidst a wash of snow (Oh, Canada), but her simple style is divine and totally enviable. Plus, what outfit wouldn’t look fab topped off with the best accessory? Those long, flowing locks! And, she’s as sweet as she is pretty. Win! Win! Get the inside scoop on this Canadian fashionista as we talk jobs, trends, and more…
Age/ Hometown: 21 / Winnipeg
How/Why did you start blogging? I started blogging after discovering the style website, Chictopia. I posted on there for several months before deciding to create my own blog so that I could share things beyond outfits. I basically wanted a creative outlet and somewhere to get feedback on my outfits!
Do you have a day job (besides blogging)? What do you do? Yes I do! I work for a Social Media/Web PR company as a Social Media Strategist. We manage a number of company’s social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc).
What’s your greatest inspiration when it comes to personal style? Browsing other blogs or lookbook! Also window shopping. I don’t really look to celebrities. I prefer normal people.
What other blogs do you read? TONS! To name a few: K is for Kani, Knottus, Oh So Lovely Vintage, Neon Blush
What would be your dream come true? To win the lottery and be able to travel all my life!
How were you able to gain the following you have now? Slow and steady wins the race! I have no real strategy, but posting on other websites like Chictopia and Lookbook certainly drives traffic!
What trend are you loving right now? Strappy heels although I haven’t bought any yet.
What’s the one current trend you wish would go away? Maybe those bart simpson t-shirts? I don’t really absolutely loathe anything though, it’s just not my style and it’s fine if other people wear it. I’m not one to shun things…except maybe lazy wear (lulu lemons)
What camera do you use? Canon Rebel T1i
What are your favorite places to shop? Forever 21, Asos, Urban Outfitters, Zara, etc etc etc!
For those just getting started with fashion blogging, what would your advice be? The most important thing is that you are enjoying it – not just trying to become famous or get free stuff. Don’t put yourself in a box or give yourself rules. Just blog about whatever you want.
Thanks Breanne! Hope everyone is savoring the last few hours of the weekend! If you loved reading about Breanne and know of another awesome blogger you’d love to get the dirty on…let me know in the comments! xo
