I don't know if you all have ever heard of this fabulous blogger that I am about to tell you all about, but she is fabulous. The blogger that I discovered a few months back is a daily read of mine and that blogger is Jacey of Damsel in Dior. I read her blog daily and gather so much inspiration from it. I love the content she writes about and love the way she writes. I really recommend each and every one of you to start reading her blog. I know you all will absolutely love it and she will never let you down. I am so happy that I had a chance to interview her and hope you y'all enjoy reading about her.
1. What inspired you to start blogging?
I was desperately seeking a creative outlet and multiple colleagues were asking me on a daily basis how I put together different outfits. After repeating myself over and over I figured it'd be easiest, and fun, to create a blog where they could find all of the answers there!
2. How did you come up with the name of your blog?
I grew up often feeling like a damsel in distress. I never quite fit in anywhere and felt like a bit of an outcast. I moved to Los Angeles and slowly started feeling less and less like a damsel in distress and more secure, confident, happy and like a "damsel in DIOR!" Dior doesn't necessarily mean the brand, it represents my new lifestyle.
3. How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging full time about 10 months ago but I've always had a blog.
4. What is your favorite piece of clothing or accessory that you own?
I sold my wedding dress to purchase the Cartier Love Bracelet. It's my favorite piece because it's a daily reminder of my beautiful wedding and the dress that I loved wearing so much.
5. What is your most extravagant purchase involving clothing or accessories?
Aside from the Cartier Love Bracelet, I'd have to say my Missoni cardigan. I don't view handbags or nice pieces of jewelry as "extravagant" because they are excellent investment items. However, with clothing and trends that may change quickly I very rarely will spend a lot of money on a piece of clothing. At the time it felt extravagant purchasing a $1,000 cardigan, but it's become one of my closet staple items. I love it and am happy I pulled the trigger!
6. What item is number one on your wish list?
Right now I am saving up for the Chanel quilted jumbo bag!!!
7. If you could sit down for dinner with a designer, who would it be?
8. Who is your fashion icon?
Right now I am loving all things by Heidi Merrick. I do not only love her work but she is absolutely fab!!!
9. What inspires you?
Everything. I draw inspiration from music, art, shopping, and places I travel.
10. What about blogging do you love most?
I love creating graphics. It feels creatively artistic and I get a very big worker bee high off of it:)
11. Favorite designer at the moment?
12. Do you have any advice for fellow bloggers?
Stick to an editorial calendar and don't give up. Be very consistent in the times you post, amount you post (even if it's not a lot) and have a business plan. If you don't invest in your business, who will?
