For my third featured blogger, I'd love to introduce you to Bonnie from Flashes of Style (if you haven't already met this beauty through her wonderful blog!) When I first started blogging, I came across Bonnie's Chictopia and instantly fell in love with this first image below. It was the perfect look to me and I found her blog and have been following ever since. I read through every post starting from the very beginning loving her amazing talent at thrifting and ability to layer gorgeous outfits. She has a love for florals, like I do, and she pulls them off effortlessly. Bonnie has most definitely been an inspiration to me and I know she will be to you too!
Well, I have always had a strong interest in fashion. Whether it be getting inspiration from magazines, street-style, or putting outfits together from my closet, and even creating my own mini "photo-shoots" with my friends, fashion has always been a prominent hobby of mine. I eventually decided, why not share my passion with the world? That is how my blog came to be!
2. You're a fashion student - what are your future dreams/plans?
I would eventually love to be a fashion stylist. I think that having a fashion blog is such a great way to develop your own distinctive personal style. I think that after I fully discover it, styling would be my dream career. I also have taken several fashion merchandising and PR classes. So in the meantime, I would love to do something creative like visual merchandising.
3. What is another passion of yours besides fashion?
Film photography has become a very strong passion of mine. I have been collecting an assortment of 35mm cameras, and I just love experimenting with them. As of recently, I just learned how to develop my own photos in a dark room, which makes it even more fun. Music is another love of mine. Although I do not play any instruments, I always surround myself by music! And of course, books are great. Characters in novels are my friends.
4. Did your semester in London affect your style?
Absolutely! I lived in central London, so basically everyday was like walking on a street that was a runway. I would get on the tube to go to class and see these immaculately dressed people. The styles I saw definitely inspired me, and also being in such a fashion forward environment allowed me to express myself more freely.
5. What are some of your current favorite blogs?
One of my absolute favorites blogs, and a very popular one, is Cherry Blossom Girl. I just adore her photos and how she makes every single post so enchanting. I am also really into Seriale-Moduse. She makes the BEST collages which are so inspiring. A few other favorites include Gala Gonzalez, Garace Dor
