You seem like a very lively and dynamic person, tell us more about you, where do you come from, your origins?
I am very dynamic, what a great word to describe me! I am a little dramatic and never quite fit in in the small town, I am from Washington State, I feel like I've finally been able to be myself in Los Angeles and I'm loving every minute of it.
And what about your personality?
I am super opinionated, dramatic, easily entertained and make stupid jokes that sometimes only I laugh at... I find that people are prejudice about all kinds of things, race, sex, sexual orientation and attractiveness too, and people often think, when they first see me that I'll be a huge bitch, sometimes I say something way overly bitchy trying to joke around and it rarely goes over- for some reason I keep doing it...Usually my boyfriend can rectify the situation by making a similar joke that ALWAYS goes over- it's so unfair lol, but the people who know me laugh, because it's so unlike me.. I'm pretty easygoing ironically. Quite the dichotomy, I am.
Your fashion website is ''fashion Addict'', what is it all about and are YOU really a fashion addict?
I am easily bored and move on from things fairly quickly, I try things and quit them like I change clothes, the two things that have always stuck with me are cooking and fashion. Sometimes wearing a cute outfit is the only reason I will get out of bed on a bad day. I have been known to shop anywhere and yes, I used to have anxiety about leaving a store without a purchase.. I've overcome that need, now I only buy something if I really love it, and not to calm my nerves. My blog is a personal style diary first, then a place for me to review restaurants, nightclubs, clothing lines, products (as I am very opinionated), and of course a place I cover all kinds of fashion news and events.
You have around 100 pair of shoes wow, tell us more about this collection?
Kier: ''I’ll buy two pairs of the exact same shoe and keep one in the box until the other is worn out… '' tell us more about it
Here is a good portion of my heels, there are more shelves below and a closet of boots and a rack of flats as well.. Of course with some of my hats on top! :) Like I say in my "about me", I have a few duplicate pairs of these shoes in boxes at the top of my closet, (especially if the shoes are from ZARA, because you'll never see them again, once something from Zara is sold out, it's gone.. except for in other bloggers post which torture me!) and when the original pair gets too stretched out, lost or ruined, I'll still have them, but new again! I do the same thing with clothes that are white.. buy two.
Your Bucket list is very interesting, is their a story behind it and what is your BIGGEST dream?
I have always felt like life is too short and I want to get in as much as possible before I die.. I think I had a school project along the lines of writing what we wanted to do before we died, and we had to complete one of the things on the list within year.. (The one I completed was to walk The Walk of Fame.) I enjoyed it, and continued to add to the list..

What is your motto in life?
Be yourself. Everybody else is already taken.
Where do you do your shopping, any favourite brands or online shops?
I love Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Zara, ASOS, TopShop, H&M and Forever 21 for my most common stuff, luxury brands, I love Charlotte Olympia, Dolce & Gabbana, Saint Laurent, and Chanel.
How would you define your style, what influence it and where do you draw your inspiration?
I'd say my style is 1950's/1960's meets present day. I love classic shapes and silhouettes, tailored items, in bright colors with a sexy edge. My style is part crazy old lady, part Marilyn Monroe, part Audrey Hepburn and part trouble causing fun!
what do you like to do in your spare time?
According to you what is most important in a look?
Fit 100%. No matter what your style is, if it fits well, and how it's meant to fit, even if it's not form-fitting- like a loose shift dress, as long as it has shape and doesn't look like a tent, chances are you'll look better than half the people anywhere- the fit. I also think fit displays an attention to detail, and a quality that people, especially employers, notice right away.
You've been wearing hats since birth, is it your indispensable accessory?
I have curly hair, I love accessories, I hate the sun in my face, hats solve so many of my problems lol, I couldn't live without them. In Jr High I even petitioned that girls should be allowed to wear hats in school if they went with their outfits.. It didn't work for my class, but It did make room for discussion, and they actually did change the rule about 3 years after that.. You're Welcome!!
What is your favorite color?
I don't think I have one. Maybe lavender, like my blog logo, but I love so many colors.
Your 5 favorite fashion blogs you read daily?
Which place does fashion takes in your life, is it your way of expression, a passion etc....
Fashion is so many things to me, it represents freedom, because of so many women in countries where they don't have the freedom to wear what they want, or they don't have the funds, which represents how grateful I am to be where I am in life that I can afford to dress how I want (of course there are things I cant buy yet, but I think I'm very lucky with what I have). It's also my passion- I finally found something (my blog) that drives me, challenges me and helps me be creative and hone my writing skills, and paint.. Yes, I have recently started painting my favorite fashion images from my blog and will be selling the paintings on my blog.
If you had to escape the real life where would you go?
Underwater and become a mermaid

Your own EXPERIENCE
Recently I have made a huge decision to get a breast enlargement and rather than trying to hide them from my readers and leave them feeling disconnected from me and full of questions like "Omg does she have two massive tumors in her chest?" lol, I've decided to document the entire count-down and surgery and afterward how I'm feeling, etc.. I think there a lot of girls considering it who don't have adequate information about it, and I'm a very honest person, and I'm confident in my decision so I thought, why not? read more about that on my first post here, and follow the countdown..
