Blogger of the Week:
Check her out like right now: Nadia Aboulhosn
I was introduced to Nadia's blog over a month ago, and I have read almost every post from beginning to end. Since that very day,I wanted to get in contact with her and feature her on CRB. After tweeting her, within the next ten minutes she responded and was excited about the feature. I am so excited to introduce the amazing Nadia!
1. What inspires you to post on your blog?
I get inspiration from almost anything and anyone. Bold statements are what inspires me most. I like things that catch attention and stand out from the rest. I try to do the same through my fashion. I want to inspire my followers as much as I'm get inspired.
2. Do you thrift often if so, where and how often?
I thrift shop all the time! I am super obsessed to the point where every chance I get I'm thrifting. Goodwill, Salvation Army, any resale store will do. I rarely shop in malls. I love thrift stores because it's more of a challenge for me to construct an ensemble. Plus, it has less trendy clothes which can make anyone stand out from the rest.
3. What was your best find(s) at a thrift store (or any other store)?
My favorite and best thrift store find is a 1950s black sequin dress. I have yet to do a post on it but it's coming soon!
4. Where are you located?
I am currently located in Orlando, Florida but relocating soon to New York for fashion school.
5. How has blogging changed your perspective on the outside world of fashion?
Blogging has changed my perspective in many ways. It has changed my perspective on even myself. What I have noticed most about fashion blogging is many people dress similar. Fashion AND blogging are both ways for me to express myself, and I wouldn't genuinly be expressing myself if I was doing what everyone else was. Blogging has really made me find my OWN fashion sense.
6. Who are some of your favorite fashion bloggers?
My favorite fashion bloggers are Karla Deras from http://karlascloset.blogspot.com/ and Olivia Lopez from http://www.fashionsalade.com/lusttforlife. They are both very inspiring.
8. If you could describe your fashion blog in one word, what would it be?
One word to describe my fashion blog is very hard, but if I had to choose it would have to be bold.
