When did you first start your blog? How has it changed since then?

I started my blog in the summer of 2007, right after a study abroad in Japan, and at a time I was feeling bored. Initially, I planned on featuring the fashion and art I liked, more of a commentary on editorials and runways rather than a personal style blog. It slowly became a personal style blog, but I still like to feature artists, photographers, and designers I like.

How would you describe your individual blog posts, and how would you describe the vision for your blog as whole?

There’s a few different categories: my outfit posts and the occasional remix (where I style 1 piece 6 ways). Then there are the "non-me" posts: art, street art, editorials, designers, runway collections, vintage films, and anything else that has the potential to inspire. My vision for my blog is just to collect my inspirations in one place and share my current passions with others.

What fashion sites and blogs do you read daily?

I don’t read a lot of fashion sites, but I do like checking out style.com. I’m a much more avid blog reader. I read Calivintage, Hannah and Landon, Style Bubble, The Owls Are Not What They Seem, etc. But I like to regularily visit everyone on my massive blogroll.

How would you describe your personal style?

Quirky, whimsical, and ladylike are the terms I use the most. I don’t intend to be ladylike, but when you don’t dress like someone off the Balmain runway, you tend to be labeled as ladylike. I’m into adding personal touches like vintage fascinators, colorful tights, and interesting jewelry.

Who are your favorite labels and designers?

Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Marc Jacobs, and Christian Lacroix are some of my favorites. I also tend to change my opinions based on the season, so the recent Erdem collection blew me away.

What would you never leave your house without?

My camera; I absolutely love it and snapping pictures of everything. I’ve even had friends nickname me "Paparazzi."

What do you want to doing in five years?

I have absolutely no idea. I don’t even know if I will be in law school next year or starting an online vintage boutique. I haven’t quite found my "passion" yet in life – I just hope that I can continue to be able to travel abroad.
