Photo Credit: Shop Style Conquer.Today, I am hosting a blogger spotlight for a new blogging pal I found in the blog-o-sphere. Anna Martin of Melodic, Thrifty & Chic. She is so unique and lighthearted in conversation.
I am happy to say I made a friend with similar interests. She started her blog in 2011 and has been featured on many social style networks like ModCloth Style Gallery, Chictopia and many more. She has a neat shop on Store Envy and Etsy, where you can snatch some of here quirky finds and loves. She has an eclectic yet retro style direction which comes across smashingly on the internet. This lawyer turn fashionista has great potential in the blogging world and is making her way up the ladder. I got to interview this wonderful lady to get to know her better and share her little corner of the web with you all.
1. What inspired you to start blogging?
Anna: Two friends of mine wouldn't stop hounding me until I did it. Haha. I basically started the blog to appease them.
2. Where are you from?
3. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Anna: Jamaica - that's where the majority of my family lives and I would want to be close to them.
4.What is you favorite item to wear in the fall?
Anna: Over-sized cardigans. The lumpier, the better.
5.What are your favorite TV shows(if any)? Films?
Anna: Right now, it's all about Dexter, Breaking Bad and The Newsroom. I'm waiting impatiently for the new Ghost Busters movie to come out as well as Enders Game.
6. What social media outlet do you feel works best for building your blog community?
Anna: I would have to say Chictopia. It's the first social media tool that I started using when I created my blog and it has really taken off in terms of blog hits and followers in the 13 months that I've been using it.
7.What is your favorite online clothing store to shop with?
Anna: I have so many. It's really hard to choose. I would say it's a tie among ModCloth, UrbanOG and TIL Darling.
8. What styles inspire you?
Anna: The styles that inspire me are the ones that are a little off-kilter. I like to see people doing unconventional things with patterns, shapes and colors. The more outside the norm, the more attention I give.
9. Name five of your music faves at the moment.
Anna: Letherette, FM Attack, Casio Kids, Body Language & Com Truise
10.What is your main focus in the coming year?
Anna: To make the two friends I mentioned earlier proud. :D I just want to focus on quality content for my blog and do the best I can at letting people know who I am and what I'm about. The worst thing for me is being misunderstood or mischaracterized by people who don't know me. So, I feel like it is really important to be transparent. I've also made a lot of great friends through my blog and I'd like to continue to use my blog as a way to keep up with them. Hopefully, I can make some sales from my Etsy and Storenvy shops along the way. The funds raised from my shops will help make my dream of teaching law abroad a reality. =] Thanks so much! - Anna
