I am very very excited because I was planning on doing it for a while,that was one of the main reasons why I started blogging.I wanted to connect with people all over the globe,talk with them,exchange ideas and point of views.So be ready for some more interviews coming up.
My first and special guest is a fashion blogger I was following for some time now and I was impressed with her style that is a mixture of grunge,bohemian,vintage with a romantic vibe.Her sweet and innocent personality sparkles throughout our conversation.Don't forget to go and see her charming blog Mademoiselle S and enjoy our lovely talk.
Let's start by hearing a little about Savina? Tell me something about yourself.
My name is Savina Nikolova and I'm 20 year old girl from Sofia, Bulgaria. I recently moved to France with the idea of following my dream and to study arts and fashion here. I live all alone with my white cat, Puhi. I love drawing and I love writing on my personal fashion blog.
How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
I've been blogging for 5 months. What made me start? I really don't remember because I was thinking of doing my own fashion blog for a year before I started this one. I guess, I was influenced by other fashion bloggers and I wanted to create my personal place to show my style ideas, outfits, art works, etc.
What has changed for you since you started your blog?
My budget! But in a good way! I started to shop more wisely and to plan for the future. Before I started my own fashion blog, I was buying everything I like, without thinking whether I will wear it twice or not. Now, I buy things only when they are needed and when I can use them in the future.
How would you describe your personal style?
This is the hardest question ever! My style is a fusion of elements from many different styles, such as grunge, rock, bohemian and vintage. There is always something very romantic and innocent in my outfits, even when they are edgy and weird. The way I dress depends mostly on my mood. If I have to describe my style in one word it would be "MS", which is taken from "Mademoiselle S", but it is abbreviation of "my style", too. Of course, I'm still in process of developing the idea of MS style, but that's the definition I can give you at this time.
Do you read fashion magazines and if you do, which ones?
I don’t read often, but I’m a big fan of “Marie Claire” and the French “Vogue”. Actually, I have a little collection of “Marie Claire”-s at home.
Have they influenced your sense of fashion and personal style?
The fashion magazines? No, I don’t think they influenced me in some way, because as I said, I don’t read fashion magazines often.
Do you think that fashion blogging can replace fashion magazines in the future?
Yes, I think it’s possible! Reading fashion blogs is free, it takes no time to check out as many fashion blogs as you want and there is a really huge variety of bloggers all over the world. I don’t want it to happen, because I want to work as a fashion editor in a magazine, but if I have to be honest, my answer would be “yes, fashion blogging could replace fashion magazines in the future”.
Where does your outfit inspiration come from?
My main inspiration comes from random people in the streets and from other fashion bloggers. The movies from the 90's and old black & white photos of my parents also inspire me a lot. Gosh, I love how my mommy dressed up when she was at my age!
Who has been your greatest fashion influence?
As I said, I adore my mother’s style when she was 20 years old, so maybe is. But I don’t know. I don’t think that I have a greatest fashion influence, because I change my taste constantly. If someone has inspired me a lot two months ago, I may don’t even like him now.
Who is your favourite fashion designer at the moment and why?
I don’t have a favorite fashion designer. To be honest I don’t even buy designer clothes. Although, I think it would be amazing for me if I have the opportunity to visit a fashion show of Alexander McQueen, Luis Vuitton or Moshino someday. They do the best fashion shows ever!
What do you hope to achieve through your fashion blog?
The first and main thing that I want to achieve is to create my own fashion style that inspires the majority of people who read and follow my blog as much as it inspires me. And if someday someone stops me on the street and recognizes me as Mademoiselle S, I will be the happiest person on the planet!!
What is the best bloging tip you can give to my readers?
Before you start a blog, consider it well. You will need time to take photos and write. Will you have enough free time? When you consider this, take a few months to get a good wardrobe of clothes and invest in a nice camera! There's nothing more irritating than images of poor quality! This is my advice, it works for me and I’m pretty sure it will work for you, too!
Hope you enjoyed the interview and see you around,lovelies! :)
