Vintage Stop*


When I first started blogging, I came across Vintag Stop; what a wonderful blog it is ;). Full of fashion mainly, but also about day to day life; always from an interesting point of view. Funny thing is that I realised Vicki, whom is 16, went to my dance school, also I see her walking down my road from school ( makes me sound a tad like a stalker.....) ;). So I decided it was time for a little thing called an 'Interview'. It s a good read ;)

How did you start to become interested in fashion?

 I keep changing my mind about this question because I'm not

really sure how my interest for it occurred. My family has
been a huge influence. I think my sister, Liz was the
largest influence since she had been interested in fashion
long before me and always bought fashion magazines like
Vogue and Elle and I always liked looking at the
advertisements and the pretty clothes. My parents always
loved John Galliano's couture, I was intrigued by my mum's
old wardrobe and my dad studied textiles and had all these
old men's Vogue magazines so I guess I've been slightly
surrounded by fashion growing up although it didn't affect
my sister, Alex at all (she's a very plain Jane).

How would you describe your style? 
Always changing. I get bored easily of the same thing after
a while so I like to try new things out regularly, being
influenced by what I like on the cat walk and my mood,
mixing it with my mum's old vintage.

Who inspires you in Fashion? 

Alexa Chung and Florence because they never fail to deliver
a wonderful outfit. Lady Gaga because she takes everything
to the next level and I admire that in a way. Alexander
McQueen, Tim Walker and John Galliano for being absolute
genuises. I'm sure I'm forgetting some more people.

What inspired you to start your amazing blog ;)? 
My friend, Aashna (
already had a blog and told me about it and said I should
try it out and I'm so thankful for that because blogging is
bloody fantastic. Tavi ( also
inspired me to because I admired (and envied ;)) her
individuality and
success at such a young age!                                                        <-------- Ahhh SAME as me!                  

Your main ambition? What would you like to do eventually in
Fashion/ Life?

Well, in a perfect world, my mum would encourage me to go
into fashion and the fashion industry wouldn't be so
competitive. But for now, my dreams are to be successful,
rich and happy in whatever I do (probably something Mathsy)
but to keep my love for fashion alive by continuing
blogging. Oh, and I aim to sit in at least the third row in
any fashion show and to have my hands on my own pair of
peach diamante encrusted armadillo heels! Yes, I'm very

Your main hobby? 
Dancing, playing the piano and playing tennis on wii which
is my greatest forte ;)

What is Fashion to you? 
Ahh, I always think of this question. I won't say anything
cheesy like it's art or whatever so I shall say that is a
bunch of fresh ideas that designers think of which changes
every season and creates a trend which influences people.

Fave designer, why? 
The late Alexander McQueen, the great man himself, because
he was so consistent in each line and I've loved almost
every single one of them! May Sarah Burton keep up to at
least half his standard. Apart from that, I don't always
stick to a favourite designer since it depends on how much I
like their most recent collection which changes every
season. For me, Spring/ Summer 2010 was the best so far -
Miu Miu, Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs were all too good
for words.

Fave shop, why? 
Beyond Retro all the way because it's very affordable, the
vintage is bloody amazing and there won't be anyone else
with the same item!                                                                 
<-------- Ahhh SAME as me!
