WHEN AND WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I began writing this blog in 2011 because being the creative soul that I am, I needed an outlet to express myself through daily thoughts and happenings. I ended up being too busy with school that I neglected it, posting sporadically whenever I remembered to. Finally, after a year of following other fashion bloggers, I decided I wanted to rebrand my blog, and start fresh with a new concept. I wanted to document all of the different outfits I wore weekly in order to someday look back and see how my personal style progressed. I wanted to inspire others and give them the opportunity to reach out to me with any questions or styling advice they may need.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
My style is extremely versatile; I dress very accordingly to my mood. One day I could walk out of my house wearing an oversize cardigan and skater dress, while on another day dress up in skinny jeans and a leather moto jacket. I live in thrift stores; combining high-end and vintage classics is always a great thrill. It's all about mixing pieces together that you'd never think of wearing- layering and blending patterns is something I have become a real expert in.

IF YOU COULD ONLY USE ONE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM FOR LIFE, WHAT IS IT AND WHY?
I would definitely have to say I'd love to stick with Instagram. Instagram allows you to post photos with captions and tag (in my case) what brand of clothes you're wearing. You can allow them to be seen by the world through hashtags and connect with people who share your same interests. It has many features in just one application, and it is very easy to use!

WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO AT WWDMAGIC?
I am mostly looking forward to getting to network with a wide array of brands, meeting fashion industry professionals, spending time listening (and possibly speaking!) to others at seminars and workshops, and of course, meeting the gals I won this contest with! Can't wait to finally experience WWDMAGIC for the first time!
