Its that time of the month again for the Q&A segment! I have been following Tatiana's quirky blog for quite a long time, and each of her posts are crafted so well together that I knew I had to interview her. With such an original blog name (The Deathly Fashion) and eccentric style of fashion, this avid Harry Potter fan/Californian based teenage-blogger explains how she manages school and a blog, and her favourite must haves!
1. What inspired you to start blogging?
I was inspired a lot by Rumi Neely from Fashion Toast, she was one of the first blogs I had read and I loved it. It felt great to know that fashion lovers aren't afraid to put their originality up on the Internet to show others. That by itself was a great inspiration.
2. Describe your style.
I would definitely describe it as experimental. Everyday I try out different styles from real prep to very skater/cool girl. It really depends on my mood, what music I listen to at the time, and even other blogs.
3. Favourite places to shop?
eBay is your bestfriend! Other than that, I like Cotton On, H&M, and I'm starting to get into Forever 21. (Story of my life as a teenager with a small budget.)
4. How do you juggle between schoolwork and finding the time to blog?
That's a great question! I take a lot of Advanced Placement classes and have extra circulars including yearbook, so it takes up a lot of my day. It's definitely a debate on how to prioritize them, but I blog in my spare time at the moments since I have a lot of responsibilities. School has always been first for me.
5. Favourite trends of this season?
Leather has shot through the roofs and I love it, different textures are great. I also loved the laser cut-outs during NYFW back in September.
6. Where did you come up of the name "the deathly fashion"?
It came from the title of the 7th installment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I just really liked the idea of putting something personal about me in my blog title.
7. What do you hope to achieve in your blog this year?
Gain more followers and getting know more bloggers. Networking is super important, so it's one of the top goals for me this year.
8. Dream career and city to live in?
My dream career is to be an editorial stylist, preferably for W Magazine. As to live, I'd definitely want to base in LA or New York City, but travel around the world to do jobs.
9. 5 things you cannot live without?
1. My Family
2. My iPod (Music + taking pictures!)
3. Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose Kiss
4. Green Milk Tea
5. My Betsey Johnson Watch
10. Favourite books?
I love all the Harry Potter books (of course), my favorite out of the 7 is Half Blood Prince. Besides HP, I really love Howl's Moving Castle by Dianna Wynne Jones and Target Underwear and a Vera Wang Gown by Adena Halpern. Fantasy and Sci-Fi books are my favorite but right now I'm branching out and reading a John Green book recommended by a friend. (I'll let you know what I think!)
