What interests you the most about fashion?
The versatility of the clothing items. Fashion allows us to be creative, to deconstruct a look, and to create hundreds of options within different styles. Fashion enables us to have a different style on a daily basis and I love that. Besides, the fashion world provides us with the opportunity to be who we want to be without fear – there are no barriers and I believe there aren’t any rules either.
What made you decide to make a blog on fashion?
I have always loved Street Style XXX. I realized that everything linked to Street Style was rather expensive. Once I found it so easy to find clothing items in the same style, at more affordable prices and just as trendy, I decided I could help fill in the existing gap (at the time) and start a blog which would help people to find affordable outfits and trendy tímeless items that people could actually acquire at reasonable prices.
What is the best element of being a blogger?
Undoubtedly, knowing that you helped someone to feel more beautiful and confident. I love to give advice about what to wear at a wedding, how to dress for a birthday dinner party, how to combine a specific pair of boots.

What are some other blogs that inspire you?
I love to see fashion blogs containing tips and outfits, but I also like to follow blogs related to subjects I am not as comfortable with, such as makeup, for example, Bárbara Inês, Style It Up, The Pink Elephant Shoe, and Double Trouble.
What are some products that you wish to try out?
At the moment, besides footwear, which is my biggest passion and the item I always like to try out, I am curious to try a new camera (Olympus), because it is light and it produces good quality content. I think it is a good product if I want to invest in the IGTV vídeos that I like to produce so much. Furthermore, I feel curious about everything that
What are you looking forward to in the future?
One of my goals is to accompany, in person, people when they go shopping and to aid them to choose what to have in their wardrobe. I have come to perceive that more and more people would love to have full accompaniment, as far as fashion is concerned, that is, to sit next to them and understand what they like wearing and what they find difficult when thinking of filling their wardrobe with. Guiding people to select an adequate set of clothes adjusted to their needs and personality improves their self-esteem. There is nothing more rewarding than helping people to feel good with themselves!
