Awhile back I held an ask me anything opportunity on Instagram. Thank you everyone for submitting for your inquiries! Below are my favorites that I was able to answer this time around. xx
1. What brand defines your style, if any? @dailykongfidence
Hmm so many to choose from! But I think I would narrow it down to two. One: Alexander McQueen because he’s the one who got me in fashion in the first place and I’m a skull lover. Two: Acne Studios, because they know how to feed my minimalist side, and I just want to keep wearing everything they make over and over again.
2. Where do you get your inspiration from? @plazitic
Everywhere! We live in Lower East Side which feeds me so much inspiration. I’m drawn to all the street art, art galleries, museums, and coffee shops around here. I’ve been also an avid reader of Porter to keep myself up to date with current trends.
3. What made you start doing this? @currentlycaro
After putting in a few startup years, I felt really burnt out and needed a break. And by break, I mean I wanted to pursue my own thing, and combine my love for fashion.
What had originally started as an obsession for nail art, transformed into an insatiable hunger for creativity and now here we are.
4. What is your 3 fav pieces in your wardrobe? @bloggingmycloset
Vintage Chanel bag, Balenciaga shoes and Hermes bracelet.
5. How did you and your hubby meet? What is it like working together and does he have other jobs? @cryspark
Funny story, we met through a mutual online friend at a dive bar called the Broken Record for his burger blog.
That night, we connected over startups, photography and ended up hanging out and talking for many hours. I gave him a ride to his place, he asked me out at the end. I said “maybe”. Of course the rest is history. 🙂
Working together in the beginning wasn’t easy, we’re both type A people and have really high team expectations. However, we’ve since then learned to find a middle ground and feel really comfortable around each other. And yes, he does have a full time job, so we have a really tight schedule.
