NAME:  Carly A. Heitlinger
WEBSITE/BLOG: The College Prepster – www.thecollegeprepster.com
CITY + COUNTRY: New York, United States

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

I was a freshman at Georgetown University and going through a difficult transition to college life. I started blogging as a creative outlet.

 

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?

It was a little bit of a joke between my classmates and me. It was just a funny play on words about being preppy in college.

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?

I blog every day and I write about all kinds of topics, not just outfit of the day posts. I try to make my blog like a conversation between me and my readers.

Put together but comfortable.

I love how Olivia Palermo ties in trendy pieces with an overall classic wardrobe.

BLOGS TO FOLLOW- RP INTERVIEWS Rebecca Laurey FROM Amsterdam

wFKR3EjREvOPPLjvMsOQqY161SYpLEri8NthnhSIWpE

NAME: Rebecca Laurey
WEBSITE/BLOG: Raspberry & Rouge – http://raspberry-rouge.com
CITY + COUNTRY: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

I started out not knowing anything, just because my friend introduced me to blogging and I thought it was a nice way to express myself and my big passion for fashion. I never knew about all the possibilities it could bring me, let alone it becoming my fulltime job.

 

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?

I wish I could tell you an incredibly interesting story about my blog name, but I can’t. It’s simply the result of a brainstorm session, in which I only knew that I wanted an alliteration starting with a R (both my and my boyfriend’s name start with the same letter). Also, I didn’t want it to start with fashion or style, since I felt like everyone was doing that already.

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?

It’s strange to say this about myself, but I think for me the quality is really important. Photography is the focus on my blog, and I’d like to think this might make me stand out. Next to that I think being yourself is really important, because if you’re you you’re unique.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?

I think it’s a mix between Scandinavian minimalism and California cool. I LOVE the 70s and 90s when it comes to fashion, so I’m definitely throwing some of that in the mix these days.

 

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?

Jane Birkin. She’s so effortless!

 

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?

I really love what Claes Iversen is doing. He’s actually Danish, but lives in Amsterdam. It’s beautifully made and creatively designed.

 

FAVORITE WEBSITES?

I have a few websites I like to check on a daily basis, which include blogs of some of my friends like Zanita’s (http://zanita.com.au). Also: Who What Wear, Daily Mail, Arrows (men’s blog, but I love it).

 

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?

Currently, I’m obsessed with my Chloe bag. It’s such a classic and the beige colors are so this season too!

8BUr-ikJnwjiyhWd2YRmvcdkjIFHTZKHzKEniMb-F8A,ugsFiPLiwpCvGOHBrxHDArnlzrneqotn1A1FwiIL4kg

 

FAVORITE BOOK, MOVIE + BAND?

I don’t read as much as I want anymore, unfortunately, simply because I don’t really make the time. I just read Gone Girl which I loved, and preferred over the movie. Notting Hill with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant is still my all time favorite movie. I don’t really listen to bands, I’m more into house music. My boyfriend is a professional DJ and obviously my fave too :)

 

IF YOU WERE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND CARINE ROITFELD WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR? I would definitely wear something that’s really me: flared jeans, oversized sweater or leather jacket.

 

SONG YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE MOST/ON REPEAT?

I’ve been obsessed with the Moonlanding mix of Moonwalk away by Goldfish for 2 months now. I’ve heard it for the first time when I was in South Africa in December, and I can’t stop listening to it. So much feeling in that song!

 

ANY OTHER BLOGS YOU LOVE?

Like I said above, my very good friend Zanita is one of my fave girls to follow. I love Aussie blogs in general, so effortless.

 

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?

I don’t think you can really make mistakes when it comes to fashion, but you can definitely make a wrong decision when it’s not based on your personal preference. If you buy clothing just because it’s in fashion, and not because you actually really like it. Everyone prob made that mistake once, for me that probably includes the Birkenstocks. I really liked them on others, but for me it just doesn’t work. I have a pretty awesome pair in my closet that I think I only wore twice.

 

3 FASHION TIPS?

Wear what you like and like what you wear. Don’t over-do it, less is definitely more for me! And last but not least: always pick personal style over what’s in fashion.

 

FAVORITE SNACK/ PICK ME UP?

My guilty pleasure: Coca Cola (regular).

tumblr_nk3uaiZIqa1ruxyndo1_500

NAME: Della De Leos
WEBSITE/BLOG: The Letter D – www.delladeleos.com
CITY + COUNTRY: Manila, Philippines

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

The fact that there could be a good place to dump all my photos inspired me to start a blog! I was also inspired by Rumi Neely whose travel photos are amazing. I myself wanted to have a blog filled with memorable photos too.

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?


My blog stands out because it has a lot of art in it. It has everything – Travel, Food, Fashion, Photography, Art and did I mention Art?

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?


That is a very tough question as my personal style always depends on my mood. I would just say it is always emerging and it has to always be classy.

 

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?
 


It would be a tie between fictional character Blair Waldorf and fashion influencer Rumi Neely.

 

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?


Vania Romoff, Cherry Veric and Boom Sason.

 

FAVORITE WEBSITES?


Aside from the other blogs I listed below, I love Tumblr! Tumblr is where I get all my inspiration. ♥

 

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?


My favorite item in my closet right now would be these chunky boots from Light In The Box. They match with any kind of outfit!

 

FAVORITE BOOK, MOVIE + BAND?

My favorite book is no other than The NoteBook by Nicholas Sparks. One Day for my favorite movie. And for my favorite band, it will always be Nirvana.

 

IF YOU WERE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND CARINE ROITFELD WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR?
 


I’d wear this by outfit by Jason Wu

 

SONG YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE MOST/ON REPEAT?
 


My Only One by Kanye West ♥

 

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?


Having two patterns at once – a zebra and a checkered pattern on my flats and skirt. Ew!

 

3 FASHION TIPS?

1. Always be classy including when you decide to show some skin – don’t look like a hooker.
2. Dont have too much colors on your clothes! My maximum would be three.
3. Just be comfortable and don’t dress for anybody else but yourself.

 

FAVORITE SNACK/ PICK ME UP?

My favourite snack is Kit-kat. My favorite pick me up line would by Miriam defensor’s “Are you an armpit? Because youre so close to my heart.”

Fashion Blogger to Follow- Melinda Fleming FROM Los Angeles

NAME: Melinda Fleming
WEBSITE/BLOG: Curated Cool – http://curatedcool.com/
CITY + COUNTRY: Los Angeles, USA

We could not have been more excited to get to know Melinda Fleming of Curated Cool. She is one stylish and fashion forward lady! Not to mention she lives and travels all over the world. Total global fashion girl. We think you will love her taste, genuineness and energy as much as we do.

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

I wanted to do a business online, like a creative outlet not even knowing it would be a blog. Then one day I had an “ah-ha” moment. People had always commented on my style and taste and would always ask me ” Where did you get that?” So I started finding unique accessories and decor pieces. Then in December 2013 I started doing fashion outfit ideas, because I posted a picture of me wearing something on social media and got such a response – That became a game changer when I did that.

 

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?

Ha! I tried to be so brainiac and serious about the name in the beginning, then I just thought about what was my message? A curated collection of really cool stuff. So I put two words together and there we go!

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?

People have commented how clean and minimal it is. And that’s always been the aesthetic I’m going for. So hopefully I’m succeeding at that goal. I know who I am and I focus on a style thats about a way of life, not just a look for the day.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?

Clean lines, minimal with edge, and high-end vintage. No two days are the same, so I dress very much in the moment and how I feel. I never worry about trends. If anything I run the other way. I find it more interesting when somebody can say “Where did you get that” without recognizing who the designer is.

 

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?

I’m gonna go with Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen. Since they are a duo I’m counting them as one. They seem to just get it.

 

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?

-The Row
-Rodarte
-Band Of Outsiders

 

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?

An vintage Italian weekender bag. It’s got the mix of perfect color and patina and I get so many comments on it.

FAVORITE BOOK, MOVIE + BAND?

Book – The Little Prince

Movie – “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” because all the outfits were designed by Givenchy and were simply spectacular.

Band – The Black Keys

 

IF YOU WERE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND CARINE ROITFELD WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR?

Yes please!! I’d wear my favorite beaded vintage jacket, burgundy leather skinny pants, stiletto booties, and a massive clutch bag. I’m a sucker for a clutch. I like tension in an outfit as I find the opposites attract and help bring a look together.

 

SONG YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE MOST/ON REPEAT?

Daft Punk’s “Digital Love” – I rock out every single time.

 

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?

Wearing stilettos on a grassy field. Your heels will sink into the grass guaranteed!

 

3 FASHION TIPS?

1. Wear what works for your body shape.
2. Less is always more.
3. Confidence is sexier than any outfit. Remember that you wear the clothes, don’t let the clothes wear you.

 

FAVORITE SNACK/ PICK ME UP?

BLOGS TO FOLLOW- RP INTERVIEWS Vicki Victoire (pseudonym: Gwen Vikkey Miao) from Hong Kong

KPW4RL9nDGKhPxGjshe9HG0IAzIZndmy76v_7tCL99cPhotographer: Lucas Huang

Photo taken at New York Asian Fashion Week Extravaganza produced by Vicki Victoire (Gwen Vikkey Miao) of La Mode by GV Miao – an Oriental Perspective – http://la-mode-by.gvmiao.com/   

 

WHAT GOT YOU INTO FASHION BLOGGING?

I first set up my blog in 2010. I guess it was my enthusiasm for fashion,faith in the power of originality, and passion for emerging designers. I used to be a fashion marketer and visual merchandiser for a few brands such as Ralph Lauren and TSE New York. I have a feeling that bloggers from all over the world are doing more or less the same thing. Being conscious of my Chinese heritage, I tend to make my blog unique and genuine by specializing myself in oriental-inspired fashion with eastern motifs cross-fertilizing western styles which brings an exotic feel to it. You will find my blog exceptionally different from the majority of bloggers’ in terms of style, themes and choice of topics.

 

WHAT IS THE MAIN PURPOSE OF YOUR BLOG?

I’ve set myself the mission of exploring the emerging fashion markets in the East and bringing any potential Asian designers, especially Hong Kong designers to the world’s attention since I started blogging 4 years ago. Considering that their lack of financial resources is always a major obstacle for many prodigious young Asian/Hong Kong designers to moving their career goals one step forward, I feel an urge to spread the word about the best up-and-coming designers from Hong-Kong,China,Japan, Korea, etc. and make the name of our future design stars known,and their works seen as their talents deserve to be valued. That paved the way for the launch of my September’s debut New York Asian Fashion Week Extravaganza – fashion show(https://www.facebook.com/newyorkasianfashionweekextravaganza) initiated and organized in the name of my blog. In addition, my blog aims at providing a platform for fashionistas to comment on their favorite oriental/ethnic/folklore designs and express their views on fashion of an oriental theme. Followers are encouraged to leave words about what they think “orientalism” may possibly mean,and what necessary elements should be there to make it oriental fashion.

 

WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF HAVING YOUR BLOG?

The most exciting part lies in heaps of opportunities to travel to different places and meet up with some most brilliant creative talents from all over the world that have come to me, which have broadened my scope of horizons in fashion, art and culture. Also, the satisfaction and happiness of being the first one to discover and share hidden fashion treasures are beyond words.

 

WHAT IS THE MOST CHALLENGING?

To maintain authenticity and genuinity of the blog without turning it into another advertising platform for brands.

 

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE IDEA?

By traveling, my annual overseas fashion trip – FashionCamp Milano in 2011, International Fashion Days in Kiev, Ukraine in 2012, a visit to and an interview with Hollywood’s celebrated up-and-coming Swiss couture designer Stephanie Burkhalter in her studio in Milan last year, and the latest New York Asian Fashion Week Extravaganza has inspired me to consistently come up with some exclusive and one-of-a-kind subject matter for my blog. My next stop in 2015 is Paris Fashion Week.

 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT HONG KONG FASHION?

Dynamism, creativity, designers’ unreserved devotion, dareness, and what’s more, a particular role that played by the impact of east-meets-west culture as a result of postcolonialism on one’s design.

 

WHO IS YOUR READER?

My readers are those who know exactly what style suits themselves best and will never follow trends too much. Trends fade but style stays.
