Blog Spotlight: Smaggle Style

I am starting a new feature in which I will spotlight some of my favorite bloggers here. I will ask them a few questions about why they blog & give you a chance to get to know them a little bit better. If you would like to be featured in the future, feel free to send me an email!

I am pleased to have the lovely Lady Smaggle of Smaggle Style as the very first featured blogger! I don’t quite recall how I first came to Lady Smaggle’s glorious fashion blog, but I am so very glad that I did! Her ability to mix & match her wardrobe leaves me amazed every time. Her love for fashion is palpable, as is her love for life. I asked her a few questions that she was nice enough to answer:

Let’s just get straight to it. Why do you keep a blog?
I started reading fashion blogs when I finished uni about 2 years ago. I didn’t have any assignments to do and I kind of missed them and as I have serious issues with sitting still for long periods of time I decided I needed something else to keep my busy. Plus I read fashion text books for pleasure and I felt that I had some useful info to share. It’s really addictive now and I feel a little panicked if I don’t blog for a few days.

What do you hope that your readers will come away with after reading your blog?
I hope people will be inspired to try different styles and that they won’t be afraid to dress like themselves. I hope they will learn not to take themselves so seriously. And I really hope that people will feel good about themselves.

What inspires you?
Art, theatre, design, film, literature, history, travel… I read constantly. My friends are ridiculously inspiring and have amazing careers – actors, directors, academics, lawyers, designers, psychologists, writers. I’m very fortunate to have such amazing people in my life. I also adore other fashion blogs as inspiration. It’s a great creative little community out there and I love being a part of it.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I love performing, reading, travelling and designing. I rarely watch T.V and I always have a jewellery project half finished in my handbag. I love to drink red wine, watch British comedy, go on picnics and I’m obsessed with painting my nails! I also LOVE playing board games. I’m a total geek.

Do you have any advice for up-and-coming bloggers?
I haven’t even been blogging for a full year yet so I’m not sure how practical my advice is but I try to always reply to every comment on my blog. It sometimes takes AGES if I have like 30 comments but I just feel that if someone has taken the time to read my blog and comment on it that the least I can do is reply. Also I recommend that you put heaps of your own photos on your blog. Daily outfits, DIY projects, shopping trips… I love to see photos from bloggers all around the world.

List a few of your current favorite blogs.
I have the usual favourites like Style Bubble, Kingdom of Style and Fashion Toast. Recently I’m adoring Freelancer’s Fashion Blog, The Snail and the Cyclops and Strawberry Kitten. I’m a sucker for cute Europeans with killer fashion sense.

Anything else you would like to add?
A big thanks to Emily Abigail for profiling me! I’m honoured to be featured on a such a gorgeous site.
