Why Did you Start Your Blog? There were many reasons that all sort of tied together: my mum had always ordered the ASOS magazine and when I was 11 I started reading it- devouring every monthly edition! So I was into fashion- it was official. Well, I’d never really thought to start a blog (did I know they existed? I dunno): I loved fashion, was 11 and spent half my time on the topshop website doting over pieces I couldn’t have- (so after seeing my sister’s friends vintage clothing blog on wordpress)…I decided to start my own blog- and it went on from there! I used to just post clothes I liked- talk about them and say if they’re in style (looking back at my old posts I grimace too much)…but it didn’t really turn out like that…I don’t even do that anymore! It’s just whatever I like and I don’t give a shizzam whether anyone except Tavi Gevinson has a problem with it 😛
Have you ever done any fashion buisness stuff? I’ve been a model for coca cola three times and I’ve modelled for some random Ford billboard in Russia e.t.c but not much else- I’m too small to be a catwalk model (when older), but I hope to one day do a little modelling for Topshop, asos or something like that! Potentially, I don’t think I’d like to be a model as a career- something different probably. I’m seriously into photography and styling so maybe something to do with that. I’d obviously still write this blog and I’d maybe like to design a bit too. Super keen!
What Do You Wanna Be When Your Older? Well, definatley something to do with fashion- whether it’s a fashion photographer, stylist, desingner or something- I’ll keep on with my blog and hopefully then it will be even more interesting than it is now…with many insights into my fashion rookie life and mind!
Favourite Shops? I have been obsessing with TOPSHOP for the past two years, but I’ve quite recently taken a huge liking to Urban Outifitters- I love ASOS and adore their monthly magazine (<3 <3) Though I’m really trying to get into Vintage and outta my comfort zone. I enjoy the odd trip to Spitalfeilds (where there’s the cute-vintage-shoes shop: Blondie), Brick Lane (Rockit) and around there…Cenci is a really nice vintage shop in Streatham- the staff are helpful and always help me find just the right piece in my size! London is a great place for shopping, the only fault is maybe lack of thrift stores ( but full of hidden gems) so I’d love to one day go to places like New York, Chicago or Paris to simply venture around and scout for style!
Earliest Fashion Memory? My mum had some gorgeous dresses- I would always try them on as little kid and flounce around piling all her necklaces one on the other- to be honest I was preety proud of myself!
Favourite Piece in Your Wardrobe? Ohh so much to pick and soon this’ll all go out of date. Maybe those gorgeous neon flatforms I got to keep from that shoot! or my lobster undertones tee, with my Mui Mui collar and ROOKIE headband? At the moment I absolutley love my (underground) brothel creepers- I was going to ask for them for xmas, but my parents said they were too expensive…and then ended up deciding to buy them for me?!? I think the chunky heel is immense (gives it so much character) and the black and white cheetah pattern next to the suede makes it so versatile- I’m so proud I’ve got the guts to wear them! Some of my other favourites are my asos round colour block sunnies and asos emerald clip on doorknocker earings…though I love my two baggy jumpers (one from topshop and one from urban outfitters!) To be honest, my favorite pieces are always changing: looking back at this post, now my favourite piece is my Louise Gray metallic Novelty Skeleton tee, or my ‘RIOT NOT DIET’ dumb girl tee with my (sisters) maxi skirt…maybe even my Dad’s stripey tee shirt with a top knot? I couldn’t tell really, it’s all about combination.
Favorite Designers…upcoming or classic? Hmmm…I love designers who aren’t afraid- or who bring something new ‘to the floor’- they should make you excited when your sitting in the front row (not that I’ve been on the front row ever) waiting for the models to come strutting on or feel you really had a good time. Simone Rocha is one of my favorites: she certainly has the talent of her father- I love her shows, they are always so sleek! Louise Gray and Meadham Kirchoff are so creative and artistic and inspiring- Meadham Kirchhoff is probably my favorite- I loved Marni’s S/S 12 collection and mui mui’s S/S 10 collections…but there are so many good designers, I couldn’t remember them all!
Lets talk beauty? As a kid I’d always loved makeup- I used to use my ‘Baby Borns’ to practice nails, eye shadow e.t.c and always tried to sneak some of my mums makeup, but at 8 or 9 I kinda went off it- I was sick of being a girly-girl. Also my sister had/has a phobia of masks and some makeup gives her rashes, so she hates it- she wouldn’t hug me if I had a face paint on.Though recently I’ve kinda got back into it: I have a few topshop kohl eyeliners, but I have small eyes and can’t get them above my eyelashes- so can only use them inside the underneath of my eyes, or smudged on top. That’s why I’m gonna try using liquid liner- as a few of my friends have recomended it. *Nails for me are a must* and With lips, I suit coral or red (though my mum prefers me wearing coral)- I love topshop’s COY colour, but my lips are too dark so it looks wrong. I wish I had paler lips: then I’d suit light quirky colours as well as rich coras and reds…I don’t wear any foundation at all and I don’t wear that much makeup- at school nearly all the year 9 girls wear makeup…they look like plastic malibu barbies, but phoney-er. I hate that look. Natural’s best. Arabelle Sicardi is definately my Makeup inspiration, but Kay Montano is a great makeup artist- very quirky! I don’t know many others, but am trying to delve into it a bit more!
Why ‘Who’s That Girl?’ To be honest I’m not really sure. I was going for a mysterious kind of ‘Well, who is she?’ or ‘Whos’ that Girl? Wow she’s cool?’ Thing since I wasn’t allowed to post pictures? But now I am so…I’m not sure if I’m gonna keep the name or not…? Comment with suggestions if you want!
So That’s it….Here’s the official photo!
