In the blog post series ‘Talking Style’ I’m interviewing fellow bloggers about their style. And I ask them for tips of fun unknown shops, and how to find your own style! This time, I’m talking style with Taria-ann from Survivor On Stilettos! So, time to get to know her and her style a little better!
1. How would you describe your style?
That’s quite a tought one, because I’m a real style chameleon! I dress according to how I feel, and I don’t really stick to a certain style. But you can always find statement items in my closet. I really love glitter, sequins and leather. At the moment, I’m in a sporty chic phase.
2. What can visitors expect when they land on your blog?
I recently totally changed my blog. First my blog was called Frunette.com on which I would mostly post outfits, but now it’s changed into Survivoronstilettos.com. Survivor On Stilettos is now my ‘diary’. It’s much more personal and I share a lot more with my readers. More pictures, less text, and more updates about fashion, beauty, lifestyle and travel. Basically just my life, with a focus on fashion!
3. What’s on top of your wishlist?
Now that it’s so cold out, I’m looking for nice winter shoes. I saw these by Timberland. Usually I’m not really into Timberland, but I really like these! A really nice color, and they are just a bit more feminine :-)
4. What’s your favorite go-to outfit?
A classic Fedora hat, long black coat with a turtleneck underneath, and sneakers. Comfortable, but also chic.
5. Who’s your biggest (fashion) inspiration or example?
At the moment, I don’t really have one particular person who is my biggest example. Although I do have a lot of respect for women like Olcay Gulsen and Negin Mirsalehi. When it comes to outfits I find my inspiration in tv series (Gossip Girl!) and Instagram.
6. Which item in your closet is your absolute favorite?
My Balmain x H&M jacket. No matter what I wear with/underneath it, my outfit is always interesting. Such a nice item!
7. Any smaller or unknown brands we need to know about?
I recently discovered a website called Ankit, which sells all these cute lifestyle Instagrammable items. Like a hashtag lamp, marble phone cases, and mugs in the shape of a cat. I’m one of those people who can browse the internet for hours looking for different online shops which I don’t know yet. But I usually forget to write them down. Very clever!
8. What is your favorite trend at the moment?
Metallic sneakers/shoes. I can’t get enough of those!
9. And last, but not least, any tips for people who are currently figuring out their own style?
Keep experimenting and find out what feels good. Making mistakes is ok. I also had so many fashion misses. Also, wear what you want, and don’t mind about what others will think :-)
