I dont think I've seen anyone do overalls so flawlessly.
I think she might have a knee high socks obsession too.
LOVE this hat
My name Erika Fermina. I'm a California native and grew up in the East Bay Area, Walnut Creek to be specific. I am currently located in Los Angeles studying Fashion Design at Cal State Northridge. I also promote Stella Artois Cidre when I'm not blogging. My whole life I've loved altering and making clothes, only recently have I been taking that love to the forefront.
What makes you “different”?
Gosh. Honestly, I have no idea. There are so many people out there it's hard to be original these days. But ultimately being different isn't exactly my goal. I wear what I love and I love what I wear. My goal is to put the best version of myself out there.
Describe your style.
My style is incredibly eclectic. I love vintage, grunge, classic, and dramatic pieces. It all depends on my mood that day. Somedays I feel like a dangerous vixen, ready to kill a man with my stiletto heels. Other days I feel like a puppy, all bouncy and full of optimism. Like I said, it all depends on the day.
Who is your favorite designer or brand?
Elie Saab. He makes incredibly gorgeous gowns and I want to wear all of them.
Who is your biggest fashion inspiration?
Alexa Chung is basically a given. Emma Stone and Emma Watson have excellent taste as well. I also gain so much inspiration from bloggers I follow. I love what Priscilia Diniz does, she has fun and looks good doing it!
What piece in your closet could you not live without?
I have to choose just one?? Oh golly. Well, I just got a new grey acid wash dress thats so comfy and I would live in if I could.
What would you say your fashion philosophy is? (what fashion means to you)
I've said it already, but I cannot reiterate it enough. Wear what you love and love what you wear. People see what you're wearing before they speak to you, so they catch a glimpse of your personality before even saying hello.
Describe your style with two words
What is your number one fashion advice?
If you don't love it, don't buy it.
What do you think is the most important thing in ones appearance for example; shoes, hair, clothes, handbag, attitude, etc.
Attitude, 100%. If someone isn't confident in the way they look, it will show. The key to pulling off any outfit is the confidence behind it. I could walk around in a belted plaid sleeping bag and people won't question it if I'm comfortable and confident with it.
My dream job would be to work as a personal stylist. I love talking to people about their style and what aspects of them they would like to present to the world.
If money wasn’t a problem what would you do for a job?
I would be a professional shopper.
What could you not live without?
Food, water, shelter, my family and friends.
Favorite song right now?
My favorite song 5ever is "Be a Man" from Mulan. It pumps me up.
I love any artist of the Renaissance Era. I just adore how everyone has a glow or, literally, a halo.
You must allow
yourself to grow
in all the places
you never would"
If you could change one thing in the world, what would you change?
I would change peoples' attitudes and make them more patient and caring. I feel like people have too much of a sense of entitlement and it causes a lot of unnecessary problems.
There is a quote that says “every person is here for reason, everyone has a purpose”; what would you say is your purpose?
I'm still trying to figure that out. Once I find out, I'll let you know!
What is your hobby?
Aside from blogging, I love playing video games and crafting.
Currently, The Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin. I know it's a series but they're all my favorite.
Bacon. Or dark chocolate.
My favorite animal is my puppy Luna. However if we're speaking generally, I would have to say pygmy marmosets.
Gosh. Pretty much any shade of purple or teal.
If you could go back and give your 13 year old self a piece of advice what would it be?
You may not fit in right now, but keep doing what you're doing and you'll be fine. :)
