When did you launch The Pile of Style and what made you decide to get into fashion blogging?
I started my blog in 2011, my friend persuaded me to open it. I always loved fashion and photography. I took cool editorial photos with my friends for private albums and just needed a nice platform to post that online. Blog seemed like a good idea!
What inspires your style?
I think movies and music inspire my style, just like every other woman on the street that looks good. I find inspiration everywhere…
Have you always had a passion for style and fashion?
I like to think that I did. I have photos of me as a kid dressing up, you know the classic story…
Who is your favorite brand/designer? Do you own any of their designs?
Right now I am very keen on Gucci, their last collections are wild. I am always a fan of Acne Studios and other minimalistic designers. I am happy to say that I do.
Tell me about one item that you bought this year that you just can’t live without?
Since it’s still winter in Europe I would have to say Acne stiletto ankle boots. I wear them on every outfit.
How many looks do you shoot in a single day?
When I am home I don’t shoot for weeks because I study law and that takes a lot of my time. I shoot 2 outfits when I am on a trip, or take a Saturday to shoot 5-6 outfits so I can study the next week in peace… I know it’s crazy.
How do you retain your followers and get them to interact?
I have no idea! I am surprised myself that I got over 100k!
What do you pack for vacation?
A lot of stuff! There is never a real vacation for a blogger / influencer. Every trip is actually work… That is kind of a bummer but otherwise I would never have so many pretty photos from various locations.
What’s a place you wish to visit?
The no. 1 place I wish to visit for years is Cuba. I think it is going to happen this year! Fingers crossed!
What are your goals for The Pile of Style in 2017?
Keep on with the good and positive vibrations. Hope to inspire many people…
