Welcome to my first Fashion Feature, with Krista of Saturated Canary. I came across Krista's blog completely by accident just a couple of weeks ago and I fell in love with both her blog and her style..... here is her interview:
Do you prefer designer; highstreet or vintage?
I have clothes that would fit all three of these categories. Designer pieces always feel so special, usually because I can only pick one piece (since they are more expensive). I have some vintage dresses; things I've bought from ebay or inherited from my mom. I love them. There is just something about putting on a piece of clothing from 30, 40, even 50 years ago that makes you feel nostalgic, pretty, and different from everyone else. My favorite places to buy clothing are Free People, Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, and Victoria's Secret.
I dress different everyday. I don't know that I could pinpoint a style that totally encompasses my daily outfits. There is often an element of being a bit of a tomboy (I have bought many a pair of jeans in the guys department) and probably a lot of vintage and gypsy/boho influences. I do have the off day of looking somewhat sophisticated; but it isn't my best or most comfortable look.
I like neutrals hands down. I don't do a lot of black. I love gray, cream, off-white, browns, and earthy tones. I like the occasional pop of a bright color. Like a bold scarf or red shoe. On the whole, though, I'm very mellow when it comes to colors. Except my hair:). I'll do crazy colors there!
I've been in love with vintage pinup art since I was a teenager. If I could have lived during any other time based solely on fashion, I would pick the 40's and 50's. I've watched the movie Pearl Harbor a dozen times just to enjoy the clothing! I love that era. Current fashion influences...Nicole Richie (love her hippie, layed back style), Eva Mendez (no one wears a dress better!), Olivia Palermo (she has an amazing sense of style...just putting together separates in such a beautiful way), and Gwen Stefani (I have 5 pairs of LAMB shoes/boots, and they R.O.C.K.).
1. A sarong.
2. A Maxpedition Fatboy Versipack. Love this bag. (It's great for summer day trips, too!)
3. A comfy hoodie. I get cold easily and would definitely need one to sleep in:).
Krista is giving away this beautiful piece of new artwork with a matching pocket mirror; to win this please leave a comment and of course pop over to Krista's wonderful blog. I will draw a winner sometime next week!!!!
Thanks so much to Krista for this amazing interview, for making my first fashion feature flawless and for offering up a gorgeous giveaway to my followers.
I'll be back tomorrow with Pinterest Sunday.
love, V xoxo
