What’s something people don’t know about you?
I think of myself as a little bit of a domestic goddess! I love hosting family and friends and cooking up a feast, and I go the extra mile to create a beautiful ambience with DIY decorations and flower arrangements around the house. Sometimes I throw themed parties and create flower wreaths for my girlfriends. I extend my DIY skill to my denims as well, by adding crystals and paint splashes.
You manage a personal fashion blog in addition to your day job—how do you find a balance?
So much has changed since I first started on this journey. Work has always taken priority over my passion only because it’s the sensible thing to do. I’ve had to reevaluate my hopes for the blog, and I don’t blog as much as I used to. One thing remains clear though, my passion for all things fashion has always been present.
How has your personal style changed over the years?
I have more fun in my style choices now than I did at 25, and I’m more daring than when I was younger. If not now, then when?
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I’d love to be in a city that constantly keeps me inspired—somewhere vintage stores are available in plenty, and where I can always visit the farmers’ market for fresh organic produce. There’ll be tiny little cafes where I can sip a good hot chocolate with a book in hand, without deadly stares from people to give away my table, and long roads for drives with my husband and dog. For now, I’m still travelling around the world, looking for a place to call our home.
If you could live in a TV show, what would it be and why?
Cable Girls. It follows the lives of four women who work as switchboard operators at a telephone company in Madrid in the late 1920s. The women face great difficulties as they strived for independence and freedom from the oppressive control of men. It’s a beautifully crafted story of bravery, heartbreak, perseverance, love, womanhood, and the costumes add that air of authenticity to the show that brings me back to the 1920s.
