How long have you been blogging and what can you tell us about this experience? I started two years ago and it has been such a great experience. I have met amazing people and I am also collaborating with brands and media, I never could had imagine that!
You also won some awards. Why do you think that people love your style? I think it is a casual easy-going style and I am wearing many clothes that you can find at affordable prices.
Do you think that fashion bloggers are the new style icons? Have replaced the models as fashion icons? Yes , I think that now the bloggers have created a large network through the street style , and I believe that the success is being real girls , which adapt trends in a more natural way. Many brands are choosing bloggers for advertising , I think the models have another job. (Many of them are also bloggers now)
Who are your style icons? I like the style of Louis Roe, Carlota Cashiragui and occasionally spanish actress and blogger Paula Echevarría .
What do you like most about the fashion world in Ibiza? Any fav shop and designer? In Ibiza and I love the mix of styles you can see there. When I stay on the island in summer time, I see people with risky trends typical of European fashion capitals … and I love Adlib fashion, which is popular all over the world.
Four essentials in your wardrobe this winter : A tartan style shirt , a coat in pink, a piece of leather, and a good pair of jeans.
