Fashionista Spotlight

Have you ever wondered how fashion bloggers make a living with their blog? Some bloggers have other jobs while others even create a company out of their blog like Chiara from The Blonde Salad. Even other popular bloggers like Olivia Palermo or Lauren Conrad develop lifestyle websites with fashion as one of their features. It is amazing to see how bloggers start up and make a name in the fashion industry. This week’s Fashionista has always dreamed of developing a blog. So you never know, she may be the next Olivia.

Name: Sayyada Rahim

Major: Economics

Year: Senior

CollegeFashionista: Where did you get each piece of this outfit?

Sayyada Rahim: My floral button-down is from H&M. I also bought my black jeans at H&M. My cardigan and fuchsia scarf are from Target. My sunglasses and purse are KORS Michael Kors.

CF: Where do you look for fashion inspiration?

SR: Usually I look for fashion inspiration in magazines like Glamour and Elle. But I also follow a fair share of bloggers. My favorite blogs are Negin Mirsalehi, Dulce Candy, and upcloseandstylish. The last blog is only on Instagram but has amazing looks that way out of my price range.

CF: What are your favorite stores?

SR: Target, Nordstrom and H&M are my favorite stores. If you go to the teen section of Nordstrom, you can actually find really great deals. But my favorite store is definitely Target. I love Target because about every two weeks they change their clothing and accessories. They are always up to date with trends and their clothes are always affordable. I absolutely love Target.

CF: If you could have anyone’s wardrobe, whose would you want to have?

SR: Definitely Olivia Palermo. She is a fashion superstar. I love her style and the way she carries herself. She is very sophisticated.

CF: Describe your style in three words.

SR: Bold, girly and colorful.

How To: Start off with a floral button-down. Add an emerald green cardigan and black jeans. Wear your favorite black booties and complete the outfit with a fierce fuchsia purse.
