Wednesday Blogger Show Case // Fun, Fearless Bloggers Feature

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Today's blog feature is Catherine Reid Soles from Fashion Blender. Her Blog is about Fashion and style. I for one , love her style (and her blog that I read on daily basis). She is from Charlotte but is temporarily living Greensboro, NC. Like most great fashion bloggers she attended University (of Carolina) and Majored in Fashion Merchandising. I asked Reid , that is she could do anything, become anyone, what would she do? & did I ever love her answer”  Oh wow. Probably Oprah haha, what doesn't Oprah do? I want to give back to people, communities, less fortunate while doing something I love that comes naturally. I'd love to be the Oprah of fashion.” She lived in Italy, only one of both of ours favourite places to visit, and who doesn’t love wine county J.

People always ask her is she was a cheerleader in high school , I think that’s because she smiles a lot (at least in all her pictures) but she was an athlete .. playing basketball, volleyball , tennis  and soccer. This makes pretty cool in my book.

1 .Why did you start writing a blog? What inspired you to become a fashion/style blogger?
I started my blog when I lived in Italy two summers ago to document everything I came across. More of a live diary. Then when I returned from Italy I took off for NYC to intern for Carolina Herrera. This evolved my blog the Fashion Blender.

2. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I love reading other girls opinions on clothes, and ways to style different pieces. Seeing different people styles via blogs opens up my world to a side of me I never knew I had. And getting to know girls all over the world with a love for fashion!

3. What is your favorite fashion trend currently?
I love the drop waist right now. Although I can't wear it too well I love it on other girls. Also the mirrored prints, and shorts and blazers in the same print, I am all about! Oh and camo!! Loving the camo.

4. What is one thing you don’t leave house without?
My iPhone. As my boyfriend says...its 'my life'.

5. What is your go-to outfit? What is that one thing that will always be in style for you?
My go to outfit would be a breezy pair of printed shorts with a loose button down tank and a bright scarf and flats. This easy look can go anywhere. Your not too overdressed, but you don't look like you rolled out of bed. Also - A red purse will always be in style for me. My Tory Burch fire engine red robinson purse comes with me everywhere. I don't care what I have on! A red bag is a neutral to me.

6. What are your hobbies? What do you do in for free time (other than blogging)?
I love to shop :) (what girl doesn't) I like to read, I enjoy needle pointing, and getting a good walk in!

7. Best fashion advice you ever got?
It is better to be overdressed than underdressed. Amen!
