How’d you get into fashion blogging?
My passion for fashion is very high, and it brings me to have a great interest in this world. For that reason two years ago I decided to create an Instagram account which describes my personal view of fashion, through my style and my favorite inspo.
How would you describe your personal style?
My style is definitely COMFY CHIC. Your style becomes chic when you consider the details of each piece you wear, and you feel comfortable in your own clothes. Being comfy chic is all about accessorizing. Even if you’re running out the door in a tee and jeans, don’t forget that a great bag and beautiful shoes. These little things really can make an ordinary outfit, fashionable and unforgettable.
Who/what is your greatest source of inspiration?
Street style has become just as major as the runway shows themselves, and I love looking the world’s dressed women to take my inspirations. There is a woman who inspire me more: Olivia Palermo. I love all about her style, and views of fashion world. I also like the style of Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez.
Who is your favorite brand/designer? Do you own any of their designs?
Chanel. It’s definitely my favorite brand, and Karl Lagerfeld is my fashion guru. Yes, I have many pieces of this brand.
How do you stay current with what’s new or in style at the moment?
The social networks and web are my main ways to stay current, but I read so many off-line magazines, such as Vogue, Harpers Baazar and Marie Claire.
How long did it take you to grow your following, and how do you retain your followers and get them to interact?
I created my account only two years ago. I think that is important sharing the pics at the right time and giving to your followers a content. You should always be kind and maybe the tags in each pictures helping you to grow your visibility.
How many looks do you shoot in a single day?
Most of the time 3 looks, but when I don’t have time only one.
What camera do you use, and what do you use to edit your photos?
I use my iPhone 6s, and afterlight to edit my pics.
What’s most important to you in choosing an outfit for the day?
My mood, and of course what bag I want to wear!
Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? 10 years?
A successful business woman, who lives a happy life with her husband and children in New York.
