Laura was sweet enough to answer some questions for us. Read below to find out more about our fabulous Kanata fashion blogger of the week!
1.) What made you start a blog?
I began reading other fashion blogs about two years ago. Every once and a while I would get weirdly excited about the prospect of starting my own blog, and after months of dismissing that thought, I finally took the plunge and registered for a tumblr account in summer 2011. I am not sure what exactly my true motivation was - I think it was partially because I was searching for a creative outlet and partly because the prospect of putting myself out there in the blogosphere both excited and scared me (I am not normally one to put myself in the position to be judged by others - it was really empowering when I published my first post!).
2.) How would you describe your personal style?
hmmmm…conservative, preppy, polished (maybe? maybe not?) I am not sure exactly. Some days, I wish my style was a little more bohemian, other days I wish it was more edgy… Right now I suppose my style is evolving, and while I don’t expect to divert too much from my preppy/conservative comfort zone, hopefully I will eventually become better at incorporating other influences…
3.) What is your favourite part about blogging?
I love hearing people’s comments. It really makes me happy to know that I am putting something out there that people have an opinion about - good or bad (although, I will vainly admit I like the “good” and the “constructive” comments way more than the “bad”).
4.) What are you looking forward to wearing in spring?
Yellow, tangerine, and seafoam/mint green. And sandals.
5.) What is one of your favourite items in your closet?
hmmm…this is hard…
Probably some of the things my grandmother gave me. I have a great vintage purse and a belt from her that I adore (I don’t think the belt has made it onto the blog yet…
As for more recent purchases, I have a Banana Republic silk ruffle blouse from last season that I adore (and wear far too much - I have stopped photographing it for my blog for fear of boring my readers).
6.) What other Canadian fashion blogs do you read?
My Edit (the second blog I started reason and the reason I thrift!)
Trend Struck (referred to me by a friend of a friend of a friend…)
Thank you so much Laura! Don’t forget to go check out her blog!
