WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG

I started blogging wayyyy back when 2008, when blogging first became a “thing”. I was in college working towards my degree in Fashion Merchandising & wanted an outlet to share all of my experiences and inspirations, so starting a blog just kinda made sense at that point in my life. At first, it was strictly a hobby as I needed to focus on my education, but once I graduated it took center stage of my life & has now grown into what it is today!

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?

Love this question, cause honestly, I don’t think anyone knows!

You know how they call people who get all flirty when drinking a “lush”? Yea, well that’s basically how I get with fashion. Whenever I get a new pair of shoes I love or a bag I’ve been eyeing for a while, I literally get a little buzz off of the buy (aka shoppers high!).

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?

I think the combination of fashion + DIY make my blog stand out. Typically you either find fashion bloggers or DIY bloggers, but rarely both!

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?

Minimalistic, comfortable, & a little bit 90’s inspired.

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?

Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen combined, always (there basically one person, right?). I know that’s so cliche of me, but I really don’t care, they are amazing in every way.

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?

Honestly, when it comes to clothes there aren’t a lot of local designers I know much about here in San Diego. Jewelry though, I am all about JNB Style. The midi rings are my favorite :).

FAVORITE WEBSITES?

Nylon | Refinery 29 | StyleList | IFB | WWD

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?

My Alexander Wang Prisma lunchbag purse.

It was seriously sold out everywhere and impossible to find, so I was pretty ecstatic when stumbled upon what I think was the last one on the entire internet!

FAVORITE BOOK, MOVIE + BAND?

Favorite book: Gone Girl (& all books by Gillian Flynn for that matter!)

Favorite movie: Currently: Boyhood | Of All Time: Factory Girl

Favorite band: Currently: HAIM | Of All Time: Fleetwood Mac

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

Wow! That’s a hard question. I would probably wear my leather skinny pants, a crisp white v-neck with this pinstriped blazer I just got, & pointy toed ankle boots (preferably the ACNE Loma boots). Keep it simple, always.

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

Divisionary (do the right thing) by Ages and Ages & Redneck Woman by Gretchen Wilson (don’t know why, but this song gets me pumped!).

FAVORITE E-COMMERCE SITES?

Missguided | Topshop | ASOS | Pixie Market

ANY OTHER BLOGS YOU LOVE?

The Skinny Confidential, Modern Legacy, & Sunday’s Pearl are my daily go-to’s.

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?

Following a trend that I didn’t even like in the first place! Obviously you’ve got to take chances, but don’t just follow trends because other people are. If you don’t like it, stick to your gut!

3 FASHION TIPS?

1. Stay true to yourself/your style
2. Splurge on good jeans (it really makes all the difference)
3. Don’t take it too seriously! Fashion is fun, so get weird with it.

FAVORITE SNACK/ PICK ME UP?

Ginger shots! I started drinking ginger shots in Copenhagen this past year & ever since I’ve been hooked. They give me a ton of energy, strengthens the immune system, aids in digestion, boost metabolism, & detoxifies. You can order them up at your local juice spot or you can make them yourself. Find my personal recipe here.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?


Wanting to work in the creative arts field when I’m older was the main reason to start this blog. Being able to showcase my work and love for photography and fashion is a great way to get started. You have to start somewhere!

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?



Having the three things women love in this era (food, fashion, photography) creates a more relatable environment attracting and inspiring more people.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?


I don’t think its possible to pick one style! Everything depends on the mood I’m in and I love switching things up!

 

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?


I can’t get enough of  Candice Swanepoel’s style.

 

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?

Denise Carolyn.

 

FAVORITE WEBSITES?



Most of my inspiration comes from either Instagram, or of course Tumblr.

 

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?


My favorite item in my closet right now is my green army jacket! Its big, comfy and works with almost anything!

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 12.34.03 PM

FAVORITE BOOK, MOVIE + BAND?

My absolute favorite movie would have to be ‘Silver Linings Playbook’. As far as books, anything with romance! And although I can’t pick one, I love The Weeknd.

 

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

I’m Not the Only One, by Sam Smith

 

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?



Biggest mistake- thinking its the 80’s and trying to wear a chunky belt with every outfit.

 

3 FASHION TIPS?

1. If you’re not confident with what you’re wearing, don’t wear it.
2. Don’t hide you’re worst features, show off you’re best.
3. Less is definitely more in some cases. Simple and clean outfits work!

NAME: Heather Hahn
WEBSITE/BLOG: Chiffon Souffle – http://chiffonsouffle.com
CITY + COUNTRY: Los Angeles, California

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

What overall inspired me to start my blog, was that I actually started out blogging, for wardrobe stylists,when I was being an assistant stylist at the time, right before I started college.
I wanted to have a place where I could have sort of a ‘diary’ to record my thoughts, and share things that inspired me in everyday life.

 

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?

The story and inspiration behind my blog name ‘Chiffon Souffle’, came up random. I was living in West Hollywood at the time, right off of Robertson Blvd, and there are A TON of cute little cafes there.

I wanted to it have the work ‘Souffle’ in it, because I am obsessed with those, and I love food, and randomly came up with “Chiffon”, for my love of fashion. I don’t even know what brought that about.

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?

What makes my  blog stand out is that it is not just a foodie blog, or a fashion blog, it’s a lifestyle blog that is geared towards topics in everyday life.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?

My signature style is very weird, and random. I like to be chic, yet edgy at the same time. It’s like looking pretty, and wearing a pair of converse, if that makes sense.

 

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?

There are a lot of fashion designers who I idolize, but I don’t really have a #1 fashion icon :), I like to be me, and dress the way that I want to, without following ‘trends’. Your own personal style is what makes you unique as a person.

 

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?

My favorite local designers would have to be Rebecca Mink of Mink Shoes, she designs an amazing vegan line, and Sara Horne who designs ‘ Sara Horne Jewelry ‘.

 

FAVORITE WEBSITES?

My favorite websites would have to be:
Who What Wear
WWD ( Womens Wear Daily )

 

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?

This sequin Aidan Mattox dress that I have <3 When it’s appropriate to wear sequins, i’ll wear it. Hopefully soon.

 

FAVORITE BOOK, MOVIE + BAND?

I don’t really read too much, so i’m not sure of a favorite book.

My favorite movie would have to still be 22 Jump Street, it’s so funny.

My favorite band would have to be HOLYCHILD & their new song “Running Behind”, it’s everything.

 

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

Hm! What would I wear, that’s a tough question. I really love DVF & Marc Jacobs

 

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

Hozier- “Take Me To Church”

 

ANY OTHER BLOGS YOU LOVE?

I really love “The Man Repeller”, it’s hilarious and the editor is brilliant.

 

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?

In high school, in the snow, wearing UGGS and a jean mini skirt with a tan. I guess it was a “Ohio” thing at the time, i’m from there.

 

3 FASHION TIPS?

– Don’t follow trends

– Dress how you want to dress

-Wear things that will make you happy and comfortable in your own skin. Don’t care what anyone else thinks
