Stephanie of Buttons Bows And Brogues....

I came across Stephanie's fantastic blog through one of YFF's posts and asked her if she'd do an email interview with me. Lucky me, she said yes, :) here it goes:

Name: Stephanie
Age: 19
Location: North East, England

Can you describe a little about your personal style?: Currently I'd say my style is very eclectic. At this point, I don't think I've mastered my own distinct style, I think it's more of, I buy things that I like and try to throw them together with things already in my wardrobe! Although on a general basis I'd say my style seems to switch from laid back casual to quite girly and classy. I love anything with a bow!

Fashion Inspirations/Icons: Due to a lack of funds, I find it difficult trying to emulate the style of dressing which I admire so I tend to focus less on what I aspire to wear and more on what is actually achievable. I do love looking at the different ways in which others compile outfits though, be it celebrities, bloggers, or people on the street. Generally I don't have a preferred 'look' if it's worn well I will probably like it. As for fashion icons, I love Zooey Deschanel's style, she rarely doesn't look cute. I also love the style of Lourdes Leon and Agyness Deyn, it doesn't always work but I admire their confidence and originality and the way they seem to look effortlessly cool. On the other hand, I also love Kim Kardashian's classic sense of style, she wears basic key pieces and always manages to look well put together and fabulous.

What you love most about fashion: I love the freedom of expression that fashion allows us. The way in which you can dress to suit your mood or even to change it! I believe there are few rules when it comes to dressing, fashion is a journey and it's always fun to learn and adapt along the way.
