My Interview With Bessie of Bravoe Runway

One of new favorite blogs is Bravoe Runway. I discovered this blog a few months ago and I have been hooked. This blog has turned into my go to for lots of my fashion questions. Bessie, the writer of Bravoe Runway has such amazing style and her blog posts never disappoint me. I hope you all check out the interview I did with her and check out her blog!

1) What inspired you to start blogging?

I have always been "that friend," you ask all your fashion related questions to or want take on a shopping spree. Questions like do these shoes go with the outfit? Am I getting a good deal on this? What is hot this season? Can you give me ideas on how else to wear this skirt? Every time I gave them an answer, I'd get the concluding sentence, "Bessie you HAVE to do something to share your fashion ideas with others," so I decided to start my blog, Bravoe Runway!

2) How did you come up with the name Bravoe Runway?

Bravoe rhymes with Nouveau which means new in French. For many people who visit Bravoe Runway they’re picking up new brands, fashion terminology, ideas, and trends for the first time. I say “Bravo” to them for trying something “Nouveau!” When you combine the two words…you get “Bravoe.” I added Runway because in fashion, that’s where it all begins!

3) How long have you been blogging?

I started my blog on April 1, 2011 slightly under 5 months!

4) How would you describe your style?

I would say my style is classic with a modern twist. I like to keep things simple and without a lot of fuss!

5) What would you say is a woman’s most needed accessory?

A great handbag! A handbag is not just an accessory, but it is also a statement that compliments and completes your outfit! A poorly selected handbag can ruin an outfit very quickly! It doesn't need to be expensive, or from a high-end designer, but it needs to be be well constructed with good quality materials!

6) What is your most cherished piece of clothing or accessory?

My most cherished accessory are my Swarovski Encrusted Chanel Sunglasses. I feel glamorous when I wear them whether I have make-up on and I am going somewhere or I have zero make-up on and I am going to run errands.

7) Jimmy Choo or Christian Louboutin?

Christian Louboutin for sure! I own two pairs, red and black!

8) What is your favorite trend at the moment?

My favorite trend at the moment is Bohemian Chic and it can be as Glam as you make of it!

9) Have you ever had or would you ever consider a career in fashion?

I certainly have! Prior to blogging I considered working retail on the weekends to get first hand fashion experience, but decided working full time and blogging would keep me busy enough, and a weekend job would be too much. So now, I think a stylist or a wardrobe consultant would be a fun job! Could you see me going to someone's closet and putting outfits together with what is already there?

10) Any advice to fellow bloggers?

When you first start, focus on writing good content. Make sure this is really what you want to do and this is something you can keep up on a regular basis before you start promoting it to others! For seasoned bloggers, get your inspiration from your fans by giving them what they want to see! They tell you this through their comments, yet still reflect your own personal style, and create your post from there! It's easier said then done so take it one post at a time!
