Get To Know Chloe Plumstead | Misspap
We love catching up with our favourite bloggers to uncover their style secrets as well their best blogging and Insta hacks.
This month we’re with the gorgeous Chloe Plumstead of the lifestyle blog ‘The Little Plum.’
WHO IS YOUR STYLE INSPIRATION?
I get a lot of my style inspiration from individuals on Pinterest and other bloggers, but celeb wise, I love Alexa Chung. From smart tailoring to boho chic, she always nails every look with a devil may care attitude and perfect indie boyfriend on arm.
WHAT IS YOUR VERY BEST STYLE TIP?
You can never have enough basic t-shirts.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A BLOGGER?
For me, it's the independence and control over my own career. Whilst it's stressful being responsible for absolutely everything, every achievement and amazing opportunity that comes your way is a reminder that your hard work is paying off.
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR SOMEBODY WANTING TO BECOME A BLOGGER?
Have patience! Speak to any blogger that is building their blogging career, and they'll tell you that it took them years of hard graft to get even that far. I've been blogging for over three years now, and if you don't do it for the love of it to begin with, your enthusiasm will quickly fade. That's not to say that you shouldn't want to earn money from blogging, but just have patience and keep building.
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR SOMEBODY WHO SAYS THEY HAVEN’T GOT A PARTICULAR STYLE?
You don't need one. Don't confine yourself to a particular style, just find pieces that you're comfortable in and build from there. If you're low on inspiration, Pinterest is the best resource for scouring a whole range of different styles.
WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVOURITE MISSPAP PIECE AND WHY?
Without a doubt this black suede biker gilet. It's the perfect transitional piece as you can layer it over everything from dresses to jumpers to simple tees, and the faux suede edit adds a subtle element of luxe texture.
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR TAKING THE PERFECT INSTA SELFIE?
Lighting is everything! You can have the highlight from heaven, but if the lighting is bad, then your selfie is going to turn out grainy as well. I always gravitate to the nearest window and go from there.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Simple, largely monochromatic and actually quite lazy. My daily uniform consists of a soft shirt and culottes, or black jeans and an oversized tee. Lashings of delicate jewellery is my go-to for any ensemble, and a comfortable pair of smart black shoes can help you conquer the world (ain't nobody got time for blisters).
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EDITING APP?
This is a hard one, because I use so many. If I really had to choose I would probably say FaceTune because I use it to whiten my background, but Instagram is a close second because I'm not sure I could live without the sharpen tool!
WHO IS YOUR CURRENT FAVOURITE FASHION BLOGGER AND WHY?
Monikh from TresMonikh is AMAZING. Her whole aesthetic is always so polished, even if she's just in a t-shirt and jeans. Lizzie from Shot From The Street is also my current fave - you know when somebody just oozes effortless cool? Yeah, that.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FILTER ON INSTAGRAM AND WHY?
I don't use Instagram filters! I use VSCO which opens up a whole new world of filter dilemmas. My favourite Instagram editing tool is a close competition between Lux and Sharpen - oh, and Desaturate!
