Describe your Personal Style, Inspiration and Fashion Philosophy.
I describe my personal style in 4 words: kooky, vintage, androgynous and comfortable.

I'm in love with with the fashion during the 30's and the 70's! I love watching old/period films just to look at the costumes.

Fashion Philosophy? Umm, just try to find you style! It's like what they say: Fashion come and go, but style is forever!

Can you tell us about your blog. How did you start? How long you've been blogging?
It started out of boredom. Haha! I love playing dress-up in my room and one day I just started taking photos of myself. I've been blogging for about 10 months now and loving it!

My blog is mostly just about me and the things that I love... and me. Haha! Sometimes I don't want to look at my blog anymore because I'm tired of looking at myself!!

You're named one of the best fashion blog of 2009, How do you feel about that?
Flattered? Haha! Seriously, I am!

When it comes to fashion and style, what inspires you the most?
I'm inspired by a lot of things, but I think I'm mostly inspired by old/period films. I just watched Coco Avant Chanel and I'm trying to channel my inner french girl!

How many pairs of shoes do you have?
I only have 9 pairs of shoes.

Who are your favorite designers?
Alexander McQueen, Phoebe Philo, Coco Chanel etc. etc!

What is the best fashion advice you ever received?
Quote from Coco Chanel: In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.

If you're given the chance to splurge, Shoes or bags? why?
Shoes! A great pair of shoes can transform a boring outfit into a fabulous one.

What is you biggest splurge or the most expensive item you ever bought?
Uh. I don't really splurge on clothes or shoes. When I want something expensive, I usually find a cheap alternative or make it myself!

What advice can you give when it comes to personal style/fashion?
Don't follow trends! Just because it looks good on a model, it doesn't mean that it would look good on you. Buy stuff that you love and play around with it! Don't be afraid to be different!
