Interviews

Giuliana (pictured), 21, who lives in Porto Alegre, has recently started her blog: Suede Dreams Inc (www.suededreamsinc.com). Her blog includes outfit posts, online shopping ideas, inspiration and the latest fashions.

What made you want to start a blog? I have always wanted to have a fashion blog but didn’t feel ready for it when I was younger, so it was a matter of timing really. I started my blog two months ago and I’m so glad I finally got around to it as it’s been great.

How did you come up with the blog name Suede Dreams Inc? That’s actually another reason why I was putting it off, I wanted to have a cool name for it, one that sounded right. Every time I thought of a name I’d write it down and this, I think, is the best one I came up with. I think it’s fun and that’s the point I want to get across with my blogging.

How would you describe your blog? I spend a lot of my free time browsing the internet so I thought it would be nice to share the things I find interesting. Suede Dreams Inc. is like a style and inspiration board.

What is your style? Where to start.. Umm, I pay close attention to detail so I’m quite picky when it comes to textiles and fabrics and making sure clothes and accessories are well-made. I also get bored easily so I’m always mixing and matching different colors and patterns to keep things interesting. I don’t usually buy anything too trendy as I like to get as much wear out of my clothes possible so it’s key that they are versatile (at least in my own eyes).

What inspires you? Mainly street style and great magazine editorials.

When you’re not blogging what are you doing? I study. I major in Business Administration and minor in Marketing in grad school. I also work although I’m currently jobless. Among other things, I enjoy cooking, traveling and learning languages and I’m an avid movie goer.

The young lady behind Feathers + Futons: Lindsay

Age: 19

Location: Raleigh, NC

Why did you decide to start Feathers and Futons?

I decided to start Feathers + Futons as a fresh start. I had been blogging on another blog and just did not like the direction it was going. So, I decided to delete it and start from scratch. Not once have I ever regretted my decision to do so.

How would you describe your blog?

I would describe my blog as a little bit of everything- fashion, beauty, decor, and most importantly, design. Some people do not like that I do not blog about one thing, such as fashion. But I just post what I like. This is because if you don’t post what you like, then chances are you will just stop blogging.

What do you enjoy most about blogging?

What I enjoy most about blogging is meeting other bloggers and interacting with them. Through blogging I have made many great friends, found my love for graphic design, and have had amazing experiences. I also love the ability to share images, ideas, fashion, and more with so many people.

In three words describe your personal style.

I can give you two- Classic and Color. I am one of those people who buy all of the basics and then purchases a few statement pieces. That way I can mix and match. I know it isn’t very exciting, but it works for me!

What is your favourite outfit? Describe it to us.

My favorite outfit is one that is Classic and Comfy. It consists of my favorite jeans- New York and Co. Skinny Bootcut. I would then pair it with a white v-neck, some silver flats, and a bright necklace. I believe that you don’t need to go all out to look good. That, and it would be a little weird to go grocery shopping in heels in the suburbs.

You will soon be the Editor-In-Chief of the soon to be launched online magazine ‘Poppy’, what can readers expect?

The short answer- readers can expect a lot. Poppy is a completely blogger run magazine. This means that we are on the lookout for bloggers who are interested in joining the team. This magazine is all about embracing the blogging community and will have everything- fashion, beauty, decor, design, fun interviews, and amazing opportunities. I am extremely excited about what is to come with this magazine.
