Hi guys! In today's post I interview the beautiful Giulia! We have been following each other for almost a year and I have loved seeing all her daydreams and inspiration. For more information, read below!
Tell me a little about yourself?
My name is Giulia and I am 17 years old, I turn 18 in May. Ever since a young age I have lived in and traveled to many countries, I just love to explore new places! I currently live in Switzerland but study in England. I am bilingual, speak both English and Italian fluently while learning French at school. I run the blog thetrendbible.tumblr.com and trendbible.blogspot.co.uk.
How did you start blogging?
I've always been surrounded by fashion, both my parents love dressing up, whether it's for events or a family day, so it rubbed off on me too! I would look at blogs in personal style for outfit inspiration, and then I decided to create a polyvore account (giuliabardelli.polyvore.com) so that I could plan clothes with clothes, I'm sure any girl would dream of have! I started by creating my own style blog on Tumblr in December 2012. The community is so friendly and has grown significantly since then!
What would you say your blog is about?
My Tumblr style blog is a place where my followers can ask me any questions about fashion and where I put up all my polyvore appliances. I also tend to blog about photos or quotes that inspire me. It's more a canvas on what's going on inside my head, as opposed to my blog where I stick to the key theme of fashion and my travels.
How would you describe your personal style?
I would say that my style is quite versatile, I love to change things on different occasions. One day you will see me wearing a dress, the next day I will be in sweaters, true history! I say comfort is the most important element when putting together an outfit and also jewelry! I love to put a little edge on my clothes with a leather jacket and a few rings.
Giulia's personal favorite outfit
Where do you get your inspiration?
Magazines! Since I travel a lot, it is crucial for me to have something to read while waiting for my flight. Polyvore and Pinterest are also a good online source for outfit inspiration. When I go out, I also look at the street style (one of the reasons I love Fashion Week) for inspiration! There are so many ways to be inspired that lie ahead of us.
Who are your favorite bloggers?
I have been following Jess of Tuulavintage since 2011 and she has definitely been one of my biggest inspirations, I will check the blog at least once a week and I always find myself through her Instagram. I also love Danielle Bernstein from WeWoreWhat because she always amazes me with the outfit she puts together. Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast and Margaret Zhang from Shine By Three are also some of my favorites.
Name an item in your wardrobe you can't live without and why?
My trusty pair of black Topshop Joni jeans! I love how you can find a fit depending on your height and waist size. Who doesn't love a good pair of comfortable black jeans? When it comes to shoes, I'm currently obsessed with my leopard pony hair Kurt Geiger slip-ons! Slip-ons generally add a more skater vibe to an outfit and I love it right now.
What is currently on your wish list?
It's a hard question! I am in desperate need of a graduation dress so I would say so! Or a black or camel-colored long line – I can't get enough of them!
What trends do you think should never be popular?
It's hard, because I think there's a time and place for every trend. But now that I've said that, I don't think a lace corset top would fit any situation apart from a Halloween party.
