With a family from Paris but born and raised in Los Angeles Ines was born to be part of the fashion community! She was kind enough to spend some time with Perspectyve. Between her blog and Instagram there are some incredible fashion shots and awesome lifestyle pieces. Be sure to check it out!
How’d you get into fashion blogging?
Anyone remember LiveJournal? I remember starting a page on LJ my first year of Middle School. I was probably one of the very few 13 year olds that became so obsessed with logging online and being active on it. I’ve always enjoyed writing, taking photos, and more than anything sharing things with people. I finally got “serious” with my blogging when I was in College. A friend and I started a blog showcasing our Southern California lifestyle, but at the time I had a full time job and I wasn’t able to give it my full attention like I would have wanted. I decided to leave my job, go back to school, and start my own blog – Ines In LA.
When did your interest in fashion begin?
My interest in fashion started at a very young age as well. I can’t even put a number on it. My mom started working in the fashion industry as a young model in her early 20’s and then as a fashion stylist after she gave birth to me. She’s always had impeccable style. I’d say she got it from the beautiful city she grew up in (Paris) and as I grew older I naturally I got it from looking up to her.
How do you stay up to date with the latest fashion and beauty trends?
Believe it or not I still read magazines. There was a moment when felt the medium dying, but I still held on. I love having physical books and copies in my hand. There is nothing like it. Things going digital is great, but when it comes to me reading a magazine or novel I cannot have it any other way. Other than that I get my inspirations from girls I follow on Instagram and blogs I read.
When you launched your fashion blog, what was it like to take that leap and start your own blog?
It took everything. I mean everything. I had a blog before and it was doing well for a hot minute, but then it started to fall apart because I wasn’t able to give it my 100% and I want to make sure I do. I don’t want to put anything out there in the universe that isn’t what I had envisioned. So, I quit my job that I’ve been planning to leave sooner or later anyway because I didn’t feel challenged anymore and I found myself with lots of time while looking for a new job so I decided to start the blog of my dreams. It’s been a rollercoaster, but it’s so worth it because it truly is what I love to spend my days and time doing. You truly see and appreciate who’s there for you and supporting you when you take this kind of leap.
What are some of the latest fashion trends you love?
I absolutely love the fishnet with denim jeans look. I grew up listening to Blink-182, No Doubt, Fall Out Boy and Say Anything. So that fashion trend somehow hits home for me. I totally feel in my comfort zone sporting anything slightly ‘punk’ or ‘rock-n-roll’.
Where are three of your favorite places to shop?
Zara, Revolve, American Rag
Where do you hope blogging will take you in the future?
I hope it’ll connect me with all sorts of girls around the world. Those that share the same interests as me and those who need advice. I want to work with brands that I truly love and travel the world creating and executing projects with other creative types. I also love to give advice and tips to my girl friends and sometimes strangers that ask for it. Maybe write a book. Who knows! It would definitely have to be available in hardcopy, haha!
