When did you start blogging and why?

I started blogging around two-and-a-half years ago after realising how much I enjoyed interacting with others who had a love of fashion and style - I realised that combining my love of writing and photography as well seemed like the natural thing to do.


What would you say to other girls who would like to start blogging?

 I'd say, if you are looking for somewhere to express yourself, go for it. The blogosphere has changed immensely since its beginnings, but as long as you have the right intent, something unique, and the perseverance to stick with it, you will have fun and grow in new ways.


How did you hear about Pemba Boutique?

 I'm a huge fan of a lot of Australian brands, because there is something effortless and fun about a lot of the designs.

Describe your style in 3 words

Eccentric, casual, and contrasting (I love the tension between hard/soft).


What's one thing you could never live without?

 Probably writing. I don't think I'd be able to coherently sort out my thoughts without being able to put them down.


If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

 It would depend on what stage in my life I would be at the moment, but after I graduate from uni., I am hoping to move to either San Francisco, Seattle, or New York. I am most definitely a city-person, and love a city that has some grit to it. I think that immaculate places can often be extremely flat. I'd love Paris for when I am a little older.

In terms of style icons, who do you think you most try to emulate within your own style?

I don't believe in emulating as much as being inspired by and appreciating. I think that style is definitely a personal thing, and I do enjoy getting inspiration from a wide variety/assortment of people. Some of my favorites are Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea, India Rose, Laura Allard Fleischl, etc.


Fave trend for the winter season and what do you think we'll be seeing a lot of this summer?

 I loved Céline's F/W 2013 collection of longline silhouettes and neutral/whites in the winter. It's been a while since the show, but I still am in love with the looks.


What has been your biggest fashion faux pas to date?

I think that in my high school years I really didn't know what style I really identified with, and I just dabbled in different styles and trends, but they do not resonate with me now at all.


If you could attend any fashion show in the world, what would it be?

 Maybe The Row or Dion Lee F/W 2014 in New York, which just happened. I love the minimalist silhouettes and monochrome looks.


If you were sitting at this show front row, who would the two people be that you would like to have beside you?

I'd love to sit next to Soo Joo Park and Alexa Chung.
