I would like to introduce you all to another gorgeous, witty blogger by the name of Elaine. Elaine is the blogger behind clothed much, a fashion blog that I visit with an almost alarming frequency. I love clothed much because of the sweet narratives and chic fashion that Elaine provides, and I can always look to her for inspiration. I love the clean cut lines and overall polished look of her outfits. I interviewed her about blogging and her fashion philosophy. Enjoy!
How long have you been blogging? I've been blogging for 8 months.
Why did you become interested in fashion? I've always been interested in fashion but never really took initiative until I discovered fashion blogs!!
How would you describe your personal style? It's so hard to describe my style because it's constantly evolving but right now, I'd say it's classic, simple, and modest with a little twist.
Are there any specific "rules" you try to follow when picking an outfit? I always make sure it is practical and comfortable for the day and that it's me.
You have a special knack for taking very simple articles of clothing and making them look very chic. What do you suggest for someone who is looking to do the same? First of all, thank you so much!! I'd say experiment! It definitely takes time to look at your wardrobe in a different light. Experiment with different prints/patterns, colors, proportions, and lengths. I look to The Sartorialist for a lot of my inspiration because he always finds details in the outfits he photographs.
Do you have a "style icon"? I don't have just one. I get inspiration from everyone!
What is one article of clothing you couldn't live without? Right now, definitely my skinny jeans!
What are your favorite blogs to follow? (fashion or otherwise) I love The Sartorialist and Give Away Today (they're always giving something away and announce the winner the very next day).
What is your favorite part of being a fashion blogger? That I can be creative with my outfits. If I didn't have one, I'd probably wear jeans and a tshirt everyday...so tempting!
Outside the world of fashion, what do you do in your free time? Right now, I don't have that much time because of school but when I do have time, I like to read, play guitar/piano, watch movies, spend time with my husband, and I just got a sewing machine so hopefully I'll be able to make some clothes after a few trial runs!
Thanks Elaine for your lovely interview, it was a pleasure speaking to you! I look forward to seeing more of your posts in the future!
