WHO IS YOUR STYLE INSPIRATION?
I am a huge fan of Thassia Naves, Camila Coelho and Negin Mirsalehi. They all have a great sense of Street Style and Urban wear. I love the creative ways they dress every day. I also look for inspiration in magazines, fashion blogs, and Instagram.
WHAT IS YOUR VERY BEST STYLE TIP?
Always be sophisticated yet casual. There's nothing better than looking polished, and pulled-together. Like people say:
“The clothes you wear say a lot about your personality and lifestyle”.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A BLOGGER?
I absolutely love the fact that there’s no guideline or procedure, just you and your amazing and creative ideas! You can do it when it’s good for you and write whatever your mind tells you. You’ll be in total control!
Whether you want to create a blog where you share posts that help readers with their personal lives or just want to share your personal lifestyle, it will all be in your hands. Obviously, it doesn’t have to be a lonely process, you can bring your friends and family in this adventure too. When I first started, my mom used to take my outfit pictures and my friends would recommend topics that I should talk about. But when it comes to the final decisions, you’ll be the boss!
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BEING AN INSTA-GRAMMER AND A BLOGGER?
Bloggers need to enjoy writing and have good writing skills. Take pictures of outfits or favorite products to make sure their readers see it first on their blog. They can also develop a strong voice and a point of view and only post things they genuinely like and believe in.
I would say that Instagram has become a shop window where Insta-Grammers showcase what's available for purchase. Insta-Grammers need to know how to market a product and capture it in a picture or in a short video. It takes a great amount of creativity and innovation to keep a feed looking interesting and engaging. They also need to have an eye for what a good photo looks like.
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR SOMEBODY WANTING TO BECOME A BLOGGER?
You need to LOVE it! Doesn’t matter if it’s blogging, singing, acting… if there’s no passion, it will be extremely hard to keep going.
I think that being consistent significantly also changes the game! So, if there's one thing you should do, not only when starting your blog but throughout your journey, it is to post new content consistently. Brands will start approaching and mentioning how they loved your post. It also builds trust with your readers as they know that there will be a new content on those specific days that you choose to post.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
My style is chic and modern without being overdone. I follow the latest trends but don't let them dictate what I wear.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EDITING APP?
Enlight. Although it's a bit hard to get used to, it has the most stunningly beautiful effects.
WHAT'S YOUR BEST ADVICE FOR SOMEBODY WHO SAYS THEY HAVEN’T GOT A PARTICULAR STYLE?
Ideally, dress to complement your unique shape. But if you find something you love but totally works against your shape, wear it proud and rock the moment! All that matters is that you wear something that makes you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin. You can also follow fashion bloggers in order to get some inspiration and mix and match what works for you.
WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVOURITE MISSPAP PIECE AND WHY?
It has got to be the "Ria I Feel Like Kylie Oversized Jacket” - It gives me Kardashian vibes all over! I love that you can dress it down by wearing a black top, leggings and a pair of cool kicks or dress it up by adding some sexy heels and a sparkly choker.
WHO IS YOUR CURRENT FAVOURITE FASHION BLOGGER AND WHY?
Life With Me by Marianna Hewitt. She shares her personal style, beauty tips and travel adventures. Her blog imagery is dreamy!
WHAT'S NEXT FOR YOU TAISLANY?
I want to work towards my authority in the fashion & beauty industry, and build a presence on YouTube as I do believe the trend has moved towards videos and instant access to opinions and information.
