I had the wonderful opportunity to interview a lovely fashion blogger. Stephanie of Lam in Louboutins has quickly become one of my favorite bloggers. I think she pieces together beautiful outfits, with different colors, patterns, and textures all mixed to create a unique array of outfits.
Rubiiee (Me!): What prompted you to start a fashion blog?
Stephanie: I was actually bored during the summer at work, since it's our off season, and I started surfing the web and discovered these wonderful things called blogs. I started with Cupcakes and Cashmere, then found Wendy's Lookbook, then went on to discover Atlantic-Pacific and so forth. I wanted to start a blog that combined the two things I loved, fashion and food (mostly making desserts). Not many of my readers know this, but when I first started my blog it was titled Sweets and Chic Boutiques. But I decided to be more fashion focused as I got further into blogging and changed my blog to Lam in Louboutins.
Rubiiee: Who has been your greatest fashion influence?
Stephanie: I would have to say Olivia Palermo. I just love her classic style, but she always knows how to add a pop of something to her outfits! Lately though, I am absolutely obsessed with Blair from Atlantic Pacific. She can do no wrong in my books.
Rubiiee: Where do you gather inspiration from?
Stephanie: I love flipping through the J.Crew style guide every month. I love how they casually mix prints and patterns and textures so beautifully.
Rubiiee: Who are your favorite designers?
Stephanie: There are so many favorites, but my ultimate has got to be Valentino (but Miu Miu is a close second) it's the perfect combination of girly and edgy. For shoes though, I obviously love Louboutins.
Rubiiee: What are your favorite places to shop?
Stephanie: J.Crew is my number one place to shop, they fit my personal style perfectly
Rubiiee: What do you invision your blogging feature to be?
Stephanie: I am so happy with the direction my blog is going. I hope that it can continue growing and reaching out to other readers and just be an inspiration to people.
Rubiiee: How has blogging affected your career decisions, has this lead them anywhere new?
Stephanie: I'm actually an accountant at Ernst and Young and I'm currently pursuing my CPA license. As much as I'd love to have a career in fashion, I haven't yet thought about actually pursuing a career in fashion. It still seems like a dream to me.
Rubiiee: What has been your most rewarding blogging experience so far?
Stephanie: I love it when a reader tells me that they were inspired to dress a certain way or purchase something because of my blog. It's definitely very rewarding to hear that.
Rubiiee: Do your friends and family support your blog?
Stephanie: Of course! My boyfriend is the photographer, hehe.
Rubiiee: Any advice your like to leave for the readers and fashion lovers?
Stephanie: There are no rules when it comes to fashion. Everyday is a new canvas and let fashion be your art!
