Hey lovelies! Today’s a little special post for you…A little interview with one of my absolute all-time FAVOURITE bloggers ever…Caroline from Burkatron! She’s one of those awesome, inspiring bloggers who you just seem to adore at first look, and scroll through her whole blog feed until your eyes start hurting, admiring her awesome fashion and DIYs…
1.Why did you start your blog, and did anyone inspire you?
I started blogging about a year and a half ago! I’d never heard of blogging, and it was actually my boyfriend who suggested I start one, so I had a look at a few and thought I’d give it a try!
2.What do you do other than blogging?
I’m an artist by trade! I’ve been painting since I graduated from Central St Martins, but blogging has taken up a lot of time recently, so it’s a juggling act at the minute!
3.What’s been the best experience that you’ve had during your time blogging?
There’s been a few, but I recently filmed an advert with Toyota which was a really fun experience! It was a positive idea movement inspired by their eco friendly hybrid car; I was able to set up a shop and give away free beautiful vintage clothes to passers by…! I felt like Santa Claus, aha!
4.Do you have any people/things that inspire you?
I’m usually inspired by anyone creative, I also read a lot of French blogs, particularly Betty Autier who really inspires my outfits! I always find colour a huge inspiration, so my fashion posts tend to be a little eye watering, aha!
5.What camera do you use?
I’ve ‘borrowed’ my boyfriends Nikon D60 for the last 6 months, but I still take a lot of snaps on my iPhone! As long as there’s good natural light, the pictures are still great (you don’t necessarily need expensive equipment!)
6.How would you describe your style?
Eclectic, I’m a bit of a magpie! I love night street clothing and mixing it with my vintage collection. I like to think of it as boho/hobo chic 😉
7.What’s your favourite and essential item of clothing/accessory you think everyone should have?
One perfect fitting pair of jeans! It takes me ages to find a pair to suit my shape but it’s worth it in the end!
8.Do you have any favourite designers?
Philip Lim, Stella McCartney, Christopher Kane, Marni and KW Anderson to name a few.
9.Which places do you often shop at?
You can usually guarantee I’m wearing something from Topshop, Urban Outfitters or ASOS most days!
10.If you could steal anyone’s wardrobe, who’s would you steal?
Oooh toughie! Alexa Chung or Isabel Lucas…My two favourite boho crushes!
Thanks again Caroline! It was so lovely having you on my blog!
