This week, I would like to present Rebecca Lien from the stunning new blog fashioninfusion.
Rebecca is originally from Taiwan and now currently lives in New York. She works as a designer assistant at a trend forecasting company. Her style is very unique and she has a way of mixing prints and patterns with black to make it look very chic. Meet the stunning Rebecca.
1. What made you join Chictopia and now start a personal blog?
I have a blog with Wretch which is similar to a community blog like Chictopia, except instead of the blog being about fashion, I post pictures of myself and everything to do with my life here in the US. I have had this blog for years and its the perfect way for me to keep in touch which my family in Taiwan.
I have always loved fashion and styling and I used to post pictures of my outfits on Wretch, then one day I was browsing around online and came across a side bar advertising Chictopia. I clicked on it to see what it was all about, and BANG! I loved it and joined straight away.
Through Chictopia I have met so many amazing and creative people and its incredible how they inspire and influence me and of course they all leave the sweetest compliments, which is really encouraging.
I started my blog not too long ago, but sadly because of my work schedule at the time I really had a hard time keeping it up to date. Now I am trying my best to update my blog as often as possible as I love to share my love of fashion for everyone to enjoy.
2 How would you describe your style?
Ha-ha. This is quite funny because honestly, now that I am working, I wear black all the time where as before I would never have worn black in my life. I used to live in color and prints, but now I cannot imagine not wearing black items as I feel very comfortable and confident when I wear them.
I would say my style changes all the time and it depends on my mood and how I feel when I get up in the morning. I like to build my outfit around one item, for instance a new pair of shoes, a necklace or and DIY item that I’ve made.
3. Whose style do you admire?
I like Kate Lanphear, Taylor Tomasi, Miroslava Duma, Sienna Miller and Kate Bosworth because they have an incredible way of mixing and matching their outfits.
4. Name your 5 favourite fashion items?
1. A black handbag. From my closet would be my Vivienne Westwood leopard.
2. Laced-up ankle boots – From my closet would be my Acne booties.
3. A black, cool designed jacket – From my closet would be my Comme des Garcons jacket.
4. Cool tights/leggings.
5. Statement jewelry – Like my self designed necklace.
5. What is the best thing you have learned from having a fashion blog?
I have met lots of sweet, kind and ordinary people who love what I love. We inspire, encourage and learn from each other every day and we are all in our own little fantasy fashion world. I have to say that I have met lots of amazing people through blogging and Chictopia. The Internet offers so many new communities for people to share their interests and to promote themselves.
Rebecca’s amazing style is truly her own. She shows you how to wear all the different trends and incorporate them with every day outfits in the most unique way, which definitely makes her one of The Fearless Fashionistas.
