Thanks to my first guest blogger, Carine. I really enjoyed getting to know her especially since we seem to have a bit in common both a bit eclectic and love those jeans, plus she is a Blake Lively fangirl too! I have wanted to add some outside influence to the blog and she consented from our mutual workspace at polyvore.com Here are her replies to my questions below in Bold.
1. Do you consider yourself to be a Fashionista? If so what does the term mean to you?
I had to google the term to see what it meant so I really don’t see myself as a fashionista. I don’t follow trends and I don’t feel the need to dress according to them. I love beautiful clothes, that fit well according to my body type and my mood. I do wear clothes that many might consider out of current trends.
2. What do you consider to be your style type? For example I am more bohemian with a side of the classic jeans and tee shirt.
I don’t think I have a style type. One day I can wear jeans and sneakers the next day 6 inches’ heels with a dress or a dress with sneakers or jeans with high heels. I love to dress according to how I’m feeling that day and even my polyvore set’s reflect that. If I had to stick to a type it would be more of a classic one.
3. Who is your style icon?
I don’t really have a style icon but hey are a couple of ladies, which I like to follow and I would totally borrow their closets), like Blake Lively and Taylor Swift.
4. What is your favorite fashion piece that you own?
I love shoes so I have to pick my Jimmy Choo sandals. They make any ordinary outfit look amazing and yes, I lost my mind when I bought them).
5. What is your favorite place to shop?
Any place with a lot of stores, with accessible prices and where I can lose myself all day-long.
Here for your delight are her Favorite polyvore.com Sets she has created. She has an amazing artistic sense that is hard to imitate. I even love her set names, enjoy the links.
