Who/What has inspired you to start blogging?
My love for fashion inspired me to start blogging as a hobby, as a way of expressing my personality and different moods through clothes and accessories. Growing up with a fashionista mom, I was immersed in the fashion world at a very small age, giving me an insight of ongoing trends every season. Thanks to my family and friends support, I got the courage to start blogging; I couldn't have done it without them!
Are clothes a means of defining yourself or a means expressing something else?
I don't believe that clothes and fashion define oneself; it is more a way of expressing a particular feeling, or mood as they are always evolving.
What is one thing your readers would be surprised to hear about you?
Growing up, I was the biggest tomboy, to the point where I cut my hair and wanted to change my name to Andy. My closest cousin in age was a boy and we would play flag football and skateboard together. It wasn't until eighth grade that puberty kicked in and I started acting like a lady. It's funny to look back on those days, and although I am no longer like that, I feel as though I still have somewhat of an influence from those tomboy days, which is why I like to add a masculine feel to some of my outfits.
What is your first impression of the GiGi New York brand?
When I first visited the site, I quickly fell in love with all the different styles. My first impression was that all the bags and accessories have a simple look that are easy to incorporate to any wardrobe and almost any style. Yet, although simple the leather is great quality making all Gigi New York products timeless pieces.
