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

A:  I started it in late 2007/early 2008, long before personal style blogs even existed (except for Susie Bubble). My blog started off with my observations, then slowly became a personal style blog as more and more people got into it.

Q:  How do you decide what to post?

A:  My blog is like a photo diary of whatever is in my camera – generally speaking, I post a lot of outfit shots.

Q:  What fashion sites and blogs do you read daily?

A:  Pretty much every blog ever! I have like 50 blogs subscribed on my Google reader.  All the top bloggers you can think of, as well as Luxirare, Style Like U, TheStreetHearts, The Selby, and DesireToInspire.

Q:  What’s your favorite time of year for fashion?

A:  When a season ends and everything covetable is discounted at Nordstrom Rack.

Q:  How would you describe your personal style?

A:  Tailored California-casual tones in muddy neutrals and monochromatics, then blended with an eclectic mix of accessories.  

Q:  Who are your favorite labels and designers?

A:  Dries van Noten, Paulo Andersson for Chloe, Pheobe Philo for Celine, Haider Ackermann, H&M. 

Q:  Where do you want to doing in five years? 

A:  Be a floating soul and fend for myself in monstrous cities until I’m ready to settle into my career.
