When did you launch PeonyLim.com and what made you decide to get into fashion blogging?
The original blog went live in Nov 2010. Chance really got me into it and the encouragement of friends.
How would you describe your personal style?
I think it’s got a lot simpler as I have got older, I don’t really wear prints anymore. It’s a lot about structure now. Classic shapes.
How have you developed your style over time?
I think as you get older your style grows up too. I just don’t wear quite such loud things now.
How do you stay current with what’s new or in style at the moment?
I don’t think I do. I just do what I like.
Tell me about one item that you bought this year that you just can’t live without?
Oh it’s only the beginning of the year so I don’t know I can say yet. I got a leather Balmain blazer which I love. I wasn’t really wearing a leather biker so I thought I would sell it and try this instead. So far much more me.
What’s most important to you in choosing an outfit for the day?
Speed! I hate indecision, it makes me stressed. I like a clear idea of what I will wear and sticking to it.
What is your favorite social platform and why?
Pinterest. So so much information!
What daily tools and platforms do you use in your blogging routine, for research, promotion, sharing and other?
Gosh, depends on what for. I use Photoshop, snapseed, mosaico, colour story, wacom tablets, etc.
What are your 5 essential travel items?
A large cashmere scarf blanket, a bottle of water, a good lip balm, a khaki jacket, my camera.
What are your goals for 2017?
Get married, be kinder, swear less, have more weekends to do nothing, make more money, spend more time with my family and friends. Basically everything!
