Five Questions for My Favorite Bloggers
Who are you?
I'm a 30 year old newly married girl originally from the desert, on the Mexican Border. I'm new to L.A. and surprisingly I love it here! I love California and couldn't imagine living anywhere else, well, anywhere other than New York maybe, or Paris. I'm a fashion and celebrity editor/writer who sadly because of this economy seems to get laid off a lot so I've decided to just try and work for myself until I find something else amazing. Most people that know me will say I'm laid back, have a quiet energy but a strong head.
Where are you?
Sunny L.A. Silverlake to be exact. My husband and I recently moved here from San Francisco where we lived for the past 7 years.
What is the concept behind your blog?
I started Style Bite back when I owned my own boutique. I was constantly getting lookbooks and info on new, more under-the-rader designers so I felt I needed to share. They didn't have a great stocklist or get much press since they were so small and new, I wanted to create a space where one could go to find out about indie designers and boutiques. That, and I wanted an outlet to share all the great designers, trends and shops that I love. And since then the site has evolved to include a shopping guide, and I recently launched a new blog SaleBite.com where I post all my favorite sales and coupon codes. Because while it's true I shop a lot, I always make sure I'm getting the best deal.
When you are not blogging, what else do you enjoy doing?
Where do I begin? I'm currently in limbo with my career so I've had a lot of free time to dedicate to my blogs, and also getting more freelance work. Other than that, my husband and I are always hiking, watching movies, I love to read...and of course I'm always shopping even if I don't have any money:) I love to eat and visit my favorite vegan restaurants. I cook a lot and since I've recently decided to eat mostly vegan I've been experimenting with vegan baking.
More importantly, what are you wearing? :)
Rachel Comey, Rachel Comey, Rachel Comey. Ha! Kidding, but really, I do wear A LOT of Rachel Comey it's kinda sick. I'm currently circulating between like four pairs of her shoes. Kain and Clu Tees are like my uniform, I LOVE Wood Wood, especially their pants. Society for Rational Dress, Mociun (her prints get me every season), my wedding dress was Lanvin which I stare at daily. Maison Martin Margiela...while that's more aspirational and a one style a year thing, I'm a happy gal when I get my hands on a piece on sale. I love to mix it up. I always research and invest in a few great pieces each season and then supplement with more affordable stuff like Old Navy Tanks (shhhh...don't tell anyone).
