I’m really happy to introduce a new post to my blog: interviews! As you know, I love being an active member of the blogging community, so I thought I’d give other bloggers the limelight on my blog, with an interview. I hope you discover some amazing new bloggers with this new addition to my posts, I really enjoy making these posts, and I hope you’ll enjoy reading them to!
Chelsea of Chelsea Jade Loves is one of my ultimate favourite bloggers; I love her style, and eagerly await every new post of hers. If you are not already following her blog then I seriously recommend you do, you certainly won’t be disappointed! I am truly honoured to be able to interview Chelsea, so thank you to her for giving me this privilege.
1. Tell us a bit about yourself!
My name is Chelsea Jade Arnold, but I go by Chelsea Jade online as it sounds prettier! I’m a 20 year old psychology student, I love clothes, and I’m possibly addicted to shopping. I also enjoy make jewellery, which I sell on a website called Little Teacup Jewellery.
2. What made you want to start a blog?
I initially started out after admiring many fabulous outfits on Lookbook.nu I started uploading my looks but felt that I wanted to post more photos. I took the plunge and started blogging more photos along with a little bit about what I’m wearing and it developed from their!
3. How would you describe your style?
My style changes depending on my mood, but I like to add pieces that make my outfits a little more edgy as I don’t like to look to girly. So probably feminine with a little bit of an edge, though it’s hard to describe as it totally depends on how I’m feeling. My key piece is my leather biker jacket, it goes everywhere with me!
4. Where do you like to shop for your clothes?
I do a lot of online shopping mostly ASOS as I like to take advantage of the free shipping! Plus the saved for later feature means I can keep an eye on which pieces I like are low in stock – perfect. I love a bargain so I tend to search eBay and charity shops for second hand goodies. I’ll shop sales on the highstreet too, I adore Miss Selfridge.
5. If you could have anyone’s wardrobe, whose would it be?
Ideally I’d love to raid both Alexa Chungs and Lucy from Lulutrixabelle!
6. Do you tend to follow fashion trends?
I like to keep up with fashion trends, I don’t necessarily follow them but I love trying them out. If I like a trend then I will see if I can style it in my own way.
7. Which fashion magazines do you enjoy reading?
I’m subscribed to Vogue and I read Company, I love it since its make-over! I love browsing lookbook.nu and reading blogs to see other people takes on trends and their own personal style.
8. Where could you see your blog in a years time?
I hope that it is going to be much bigger and more successful. I want to inspire others and I hope to have created some steady monthly features in addition to my Street Style feature that make readers come back for more. I hope to do this by creating more street style posts, ways to wear and more DIY’s for you guys to try out! And to venture into Vlogging!
9. What advice would you give to any new fashion bloggers?
I would have to say stick with it, write pieces you would want to read yourself. Don’t feel like you have to post every day, go for quality! Get twitter and socialise with other bloggers as it can feel more like a community if you have fellow bloggers to chat to and it’s the perfect way to find new brands!
