An interview with blogger and stylist Annabel of Love More, a visually exciting blog with a great mix of posts. Check it out!
I love my vintage blazer collection, vintage rock t-shirts and my unique Doc Martens.
What does your current wishlist consist of?
These boots http://lovemoreblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/studmebeautiful.html
Whose wardrobe would you steal besides the magical one in "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe"?
I honestly think Rumi from Fashion Toast (http://www.fashiontoast.com/) would have one of the most amazing wardrobes going around...she seems to have quite a variety. Also wouldn't mind diving into Chloe Sevigny's, Erin Wasson's, Stella McCartney's..oh the list goes on!
Streetstyle, editorials, magazines, nature...the list is endless!
Favorite online shops?
I am a sucker for http://www.topshop.com/, http://www.shopnastygal.com/, http://www.pixiemarket.com/store/, http://www.thenewguard.com.au/, http://www.claireinc.com/index/index/page/home
Favorite local shops?
Incu is always good for a looksie, all the vintage stores on Crown Street Surry Hills I love - I rarely walk out of C's without something!
How long have you been blogging?
Since December 2008..so about 18 months.
What made you decide to start blogging?
I had been following a few of the more personal blogs for a few months and felt so restricted not being a part of the community. I never started with the intention of getting a solid following..it kind of just happened. I find the blogging experience so far to be really rewarding and enjoyable. It's just so great to have a place to post whatever is inspiring you at the time, share your personal style, highlights in your life etc.
How do your friends and family support your blogging?
They are really great! My mum sadly would not even know how to turn a computer on so she has no idea about it all. My sister checks in all the time which is great because we don't live in the same state anymore and are really close. My brothers I don't think check in on it at all - boys! And my friends are fantastic about it. Occasionally they comment and it makes my day :)
How long have you been interested in fashion?
How did your interest develop? I have been into fashion since I can remember. I have always had a passion for it. It didn't really click to me though until I started bloggin that this is what I want to pursue in terms of a career.
Where did you pick up your style?
I think we all just absorb little pieces of everything around us. There is no one person, or one style I am into.
Has blogging affected your career?
Has it lead you in a new direction in life? Without a doubt. It has opened up so many doors already...I am so very grateful for everything that has spun out from it.
Best advice to fashion lovers, bloggers and non bloggers?
Do what makes you happy! Money should never be the drive to what you do.
Personal benefits to blogging?
Meeting and making friends with people from all around the world is by far the biggest personal benefit I have experienced so far. :)
