I am SO excited to introduce to you Kelly from Enter Kelly!! She is a fashion blogger from Canada and has become like a friend to me in the blogging world! I wish we could actually sit down and have coffee :) She has a daring fashion sense but also one that others can find aspiring and attainable.
She is sincere and genuine in her blog and all around wonderful person.
I asked kelly to answer some fun questions about her style, and also to pick a few of her favorite fall items and remix them into 3 different outfits! She chose this plaid mens wear button up - remixed in three ways. She wore a few staple items like a chunky knit sweater, and some great black combat boots as well.
ALSO I love that she wore white pants in the fall. This is why I love Kelly! Be sure to check out what else is going on in her world, but for now enjoy this feature!!
1. What is your Blog Site?
2. How long have you been blogging?
Since February of 2011!
3. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging back in February after I came across Kendi's 30 for 30 challenge. Being a self-proclaimed shopaholic, I realized that this challenge would curb me from spending money for an entire month, and it would allow me to figure out how to remix the clothing that I already owned. I started my blog as a way to keep me committed to the challenge. After the challenge, I enjoyed blogging so much that I've kept up with it since :)
4. How would you define your personal style?
I never know how to answer this question because I don't know how to define my style. Some days I like to look super feminine and tailored, and other days I really enjoy a grungier or less polished look. Above all, however, is comfort. If I'm not comfortable in my clothes, I won't wear them.
5. Who is your favorite designer?
Call me crazy, but I don't follow designers very much. But I do love Joe Mimran of the Joe Fresh Canadian clothing line. His designs are always super trendy, but he makes them affordable for people like me who hate spending billions of dollars! :)
6. What are your top 5 favorite items from your closet?
Right now, they've got to be my leather jacket, my men's flannel plaid button-up, my blue fitted blazer, my over-the-knee boots (that I can't wait to wear again!), and my cobalt blue pants.
7. What is an item every girl needs?
Every girl needs a fitted blazer. It's the easiest thing to throw on and instantly look put together. There are so many different shapes and cuts available that any girl can get one to match their body type or suit their personal style. It's definitely a great investment!
8. Who do you find inspiration from?
More than anything else, I find style inspiration from other bloggers. I only started blogging back in February, but I've been following fashion blogs for almost two years now. Bloggers are the best source for inspiration because each of them have their own unique styles, and generally the products that they feature are actually affordable. I also looooove Pinterest, but to me it's just an extension of the blogging inspiration :)
9. Who are some of your favorite Bloggers?
Ahhh, this is a tough question. I have chosen to follow the blogs that I do for different reasons. It's hard to choose favourite bloggers because everyone's blog is wonderful! But if I had to pick a few, it would have to be hands-down Sydney from The Daybook (I wish I could have her wardrobe), and Katy from Running on Happiness (because her posts are so well-written). But like I said, I love everyone that I follow for different reasons.
10. If money wasn't an option, What's one crazy splurge you wish you could buy?
(example mine would be Marc Jacobs Leather bag.. LV luggage.. etc) :)
I would buy the classic Burberry trench. If only....
JUST FOR FUN :)
11. What is your drink of Choice?
Hmm, usually I just reach for water, but I know that's super boring. My favourite soda is Dr. Pepper!
Ideal First date?
Food is my favourite, so going out for a nice dinner would have to be included. Other than that? I really couldn't care less. As long as I'm with the person I want to be with I'd have a great time I'm sure.
13. Favorite Hobby?
Internet. Is internet a hobby? Internet has all of my favourite things - Twitter, Blogger, Pinterest, online shopping.... Hah. If I had to choose anything though, it would be blogging and reading other blogs. It's become a part of my life and I love it :)
14. Favorite Retail Store/Place to shop?
I probably own more clothing from Forever21 than any other store, but I love H&M, Dynamite and the Joe Fresh clothing line as well.
15. What Advice do you have for new fashion bloggers?
Blogging is all about the community. To be successful, in whatever way that you want, means being a part of that community. Comment on your favourite blogs, get involved in Twitter, Facebook and on Bloglovin' amongst other social platforms. You will find a lot of great people behind your favourite blogs, and getting to know them is the best part. Also, it's important to have good quality photos on your blog (I know my pictures aren't always the best, but I hope to be fixing that in the next few months). You don't need a super crazy camera to do it, you just need to know your lighting and your surroundings.
Kelly you're awesome!
