1. Tell me a little about yourself. Where are you from? What's your job?
My name is Samantha, I am 20. I live in France, in the suburb of Paris, just next to Disneyland! I am a former banker who is looking for another job in the fashion world.
2. What does fashion mean to you?
According to me, fashion is a way to express ourselves. It shows a lot of your personality and your personnal tastes. So it isn't all about clothes but about showing who you really are.
3. Why would you start blog?
I have always blogging since I am 10 so I think it became a hobbit or a drug to me. I've talk about me, myself, things I like or not but I only started to talk about fashion like... 4-5 years ago.
4. Who are some of your favorite designers? Why?
Well... I can't decide which designers are my favorite but they're a some of them I always love the work. Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, his collections always surprise me every season and it's the main brand that inspire me first. I also love Valentino's current artistic directors Chiuri and Piccoli for their dreamy collections full of lace and romantic spirit. Another duo I like is Dolce and Gabbanna for their lastest collections of these last years, they don't inspire my everyday fashion but my lolita style! Well, I have so much more...
5. What matters to you most as a fashion blogger?
I became a fashion blogger because I wanted to share my inspirations, my outfits and everything else related to everyone. For years, I've been struck in my daily life, having no tastes and when I discovered fashion (especially lolita) a few years ago, it was a relief to me, a way to open myself to other people and help me to express my opinions for the shy girl I was.
6. How would you define your personal style?
For my both styles (lolita and western fashion), I love cute, frilly and simple things. I like basics but with an original element
7. What is your inspiration and where do you get it?
I take my inspirations according to my mood and my current obsessions, but it's lolita fashion and lolita trends that inspire me the most. According to what I read or what I watch, it can brings me inspiration. I also got inspired by pastel/romantic/vintage pictures on Tumblr, victorian era from Jane Austen's art and Blair Waldorf's style in Gossip Girl (all seasons).
8. What are some of your favorite fashion websites, magazines, or books?
I like to read ELLE UK and Paulette magazine (french). Well, I rathed prefer UK fashion magazins than french because I feel they are closer to my style.
9. Where is your favorite travel getaway? Why
I've never travelled until last year in the USA (California/Nevada/District of Colombia) but I would love to visit east countries from Europe, especially Austria. I love the german history which is close to the french I deeply love and admire and their culture is also a big inspiration to me! There are so many things to do, to see and visit there.
10. Describe your style in three words.
Simple, frilly and preppy.
