FAN FEATURE FRIDAY - Torrina

Friday, May 13, 2011

So I wanted to start a new feature for my blog. I want to feature my fans/readers. If you would like to be featured for a friday all you have to do is follow my blog via google friend connect. You don't have to be a blogger, just a fan!!

For my first feature friday, I'm featuring my Best Friend Torrina from College. We went to school together at Bucknell University, and we were crazy shopaholics together. Definitely don't shop with either one of us if you are trying to stay on a budget! Torrina's best style is displayed by her going out outfits. While mine are rather plan an un unique, Tori steps up the notch.

Name: Torrina Worthy
Age: 27
Occupation: Clinical Data Coordinator
Hometown: Norristown, PA
Current Location: Same









Dress: Bebe

Shoes: Aldo

Necklace: New York & Co

Clutch: Express























How would you describe your personal style? Simple, jeans, tops, and boots because it's easy. For going out dresses and heels are also easy.

Do you have any fashion icons? Not really, but recently I've taken a liking to Zoe Saldana's style and make-up and I recently purchased her fragrances from AVON








Dress: Vicki S
Bracelet: Ann Taylor Loft
Shoes: Aldo



























What do you use for inspiration when putting together your outfits? Nothing in particular really inspires me. I just like something that's easy to put together...but I do like to read InStyle Magazine and cut out outfits that I think are cute. If I really like them, I'll attempt to find items in my closet or make purchases that will allow me to recreate the look. I've done that a few times this past year and I thought it was fun trying to find the pieces I was missing or finding ways to substitute.

What is your opinion on fashion trends? Do you follow them? I think there are too many trends that exist today to really keep track or follow them all. I don't think I go out of my way to personally follow the trends. The stores I mainly shop in try to feature the latest trends, so just by shopping at that store, I can't help by indirectly end up following some of the latest trends (i.e. Express is selling a lot of rompers and skorts this Spring)



Dress: Arden B
Romper: Express
Shoes: Victoria's Secret
Earrings: Borrowed from her Mother


Do you feel a lot of pressure to dress with the current season of trends living near a big city (Philadelphia)? Not sure I understand this question, but I would say that the weather living up North definitely influences my style and forces me to wear certain items.







How is fashion in Philadelphia different than other place/s you haev lived or visted? Philadelphia is definitely an urban area, so this past year I saw a lot of people wearing leather jackets, skinny jeans, and lots of fashionable boots in the winter. I guess it just differs in the fact that it's cold here, the majority of the time so boots and jackets are worn a lot through the year.








Dress:
Bebe

Belt: Bebe

Shoes: Vicki S
















Have any life experiences helped to shape your style? I cannot spend a lot of money on clothes, so I have learned how to splurge on key, staple items that will last for year. In addition I've learned how to bargain shop on items that I may nor wear more than once. For instance, I don't mind buying a cheap dress that's cute just for one night out. I enjoy bargain shopping to create "Looks for Less"





You have fantastic style! Would you consider starting your own blog? Or at least joining sites like lookbook and chictopia to display your outfits? I don't think so, because I would not have the time to start my own blog or follow them.


Dress: Forever 21

Earrings: Forever 21

Shoes: Aldo















Do you do any thrifted/vintage shopping? Not really, but I'd like to try one day. I have a friend who used ot always find great accessories at the local thrift store, such as earrings, clutches, and belts




What is your favorite item in your closet? All of my dark blue jeans: boot cut and skinny because I can dress them up for going out, wear them to work, and dress them down if I wear flats of flip flops.



What is your go-to handbag? This past winter I splurged on a Sorial New York dark purple leather bag from BlueFly.com. I spent over $200 on it, but I got a lot of compliments on it and because it was real leather, it was reliable and sturdy




Dress: Arden B

Shoes: Aldo




What are your favorite fashion magazines? I don't really read any except for InStyle because Shalanda gave me a subscription as a gift. Every now and then I like to read People Style Watch, but I don't think that counts as a fashion magazine! Lol. I used to like reading Lucky Mag because they featured a lot of affordable products. I find that Fashion magazines in general can be intimidating when they feature so many items that are too expensive for the average consumer.


Which outfit shown above is your favorite of Torrina's?


Well Everyone! I hope you enjoyed my first Fan Feature Friday! I hope to have someone else want to be featured next week! If you want to be featured please send me an email to Shasielove@gmail.com


Also I'm pretty good and reading everyone's blogs everyday, but due to the blogger debacle and packing to go out of town...(I'm now in Pittsburgh, Pa), I'm about 300 posts behind! So don't fret I'll be making my way through to check out all of your updated blog posts!


Luv,

  5. @}i{ Girl you would NOT scare off my readers. My readers all understand that everyone has a different definition of style, and that you don't have to look like you just came out of a magazine to be featured. I'm interested in displaying individual style, likes and dislikes. so sign up girlie!
