Here's the interview:
1) Why did you start blogging?
As wardrobe stylists working on set and styling models and musicians, we are always meeting other industry professionals. Often times, people would compliment us on what we were wearing ourselves. So we decided to start the blog and use it as an outlet. Not only to help promote what we do professionally, but to make ourselves more approachable and accessible and really just connect with the fashion community in a different way.
2) What motivates you to keep blogging?
We really enjoy blogging because it allows us to not only have fun, but grow with our personal style. We can be playful and discover new ways to dress ourselves, and our future clients! Blogging has also proven to be an amazing outlet and we have met, conversed, and even worked with so many awesome people through blogging.
We have been blogging for two years now, and loving every minute!
4) Who are your fashion icons?
Erica: My fashion icon is my grandmother! Always poised and elegantly dressed, my grandmother inspired me ever since I was little. The Ferragamo heels, Armani clutches, and fur caplets are all treasures I have from her and incorporate into my everyday looks!
David: I would have to say my fashion icon is Pete Doherty. Always a fan of classic English menswear, I love me some oxfords, and bowties for a dandy appeal mixed with edgy pieces like a leather jacket and combat boots, I think Pete accomplishes this very well.
5) What are your favorite items in your closet?
Erica: My favorite items in my closet are my leather pants, and oversized flannels. This is a “go to” chic and easy look for me, and I just couldn’t live without them!
David: I’m completely obsessed with jackets, so really my favorite pieces are my camoflouge jacket and my classic black leather biker jacket. I also wear blazers pretty much everyday and have a grey tweed one I’ve been dying to get back into!
5) Can you describe the New York street style?
New York street style, we feel, is really just about uniqueness and individuality. Not being afraid to pull from different categories of fashion and mix them together to create something new. It’s all about how you choose to wear your clothes, not where you purchased them. In New York, you’ll never get bored checking out other people’s looks and fashion choices which is why we love it here so much!
6) What kind of music inspires you?
We listen to a lot of Jeff Buckley, Mike Snow, and Fiona Apple! We also enjoy our top 40 every now and then J
8) What are your future plans?
Our plan is to continue growing our business and be able to travel more. Traveling is a big priority to us so we would love to be doing more of that within the next year. We also plan on continuing to advance our blog of course! For us it’s all about progression and discovering what life has to offer!
10) What do you do, when you're not busy blogging?
When we aren’t blogging we are working. We are freelance wardrobe stylists and run our own business, so most of our days are taken up running around pulling fabulous clothing and prepping for the next shoot! When we aren’t working however, we can be found in front of the TV, catching up on all our reality shows we missed haha!
11) What were the last things you bought?
Erica: The last thing I bought was a classic black shift dress from Kensie. I saw it in the store and just had to have it immediately!
David: The last thing I bought was a pair of cranberry red velvet loafers by Cole Haan, I’m so obsessed with them I have to refrain from wearing them everyday!
12) What advice can you give to new bloggers?
Our advice to new bloggers would be to stay true to your own style and have fun with it! Whether you’re blogging about fashion, food, music, or all of that and more, make sure you stay consistent and give your readers something to depend on!
Thank you so much for the interview and I wish you best of luck :)
