Blogger Spotlight | Margo from Classroom Couture

Hi my fashionable people I want you guys to meet one of my style crushes Margo from Classroom Couture. She has an amazing scene of style and her shoe game is crazy!! lol I'm not even going to lie to you guys I was smitten after going through her instagram pictures I knew I need to go and check out her blog and after reading her blog. I knew that I was have a full on style crush on Margo, I really enjoy her personal style and her blog, I mean look at her do you know any teacher's aides who dress like her?? Well now you do. Being a fan of hers, I really wanted to email her and asked a few questions about being a blogger and Margo was kind enough to answer them all for us. lets get started!!!

1. How do you describe your style?
  Margo:I would describe my style as classic chic with a hint of prep.

2.What are your closet staples?
  Margo:Closet staples are a black boyfriend blazer, white button-down, leopard accessories {clutch and belt}, dark skinny jeans, LBD {not only little black dress but a little BRIGHT dress too}, pearl earrings, a high waisted pencil skirt, nude pumps.  My staples are pretty basic but I guess that's why they are my staples :)

3. Who are your style icons?
  Margo: My style icons are Rachel Zoe, Kate Moss, Nicole Richie, Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Onassis, Miranda Kerr, Olivia Palermo.

4. Who or what inspired you to start a blog?
  Margo: The inspiration to start Classroom Couture came to me one day on my drive to work. I was listening to the radio and they had a poll question:

"Real estate agents are said to be the best dressed professionals.  We surveyed people to find what professionals they find to be the worst dressed."  Guess who they voted the worst dressed professionals?  Teachers!?!  I immediately knew I needed to set the record straight and maybe offer some ideas for looking stylish and professional in the classroom.

5. How has blogging changed your life?
  Margo:Blogging has certainly had a positive impact on my life. It's a creative outlet for me and gives me a place the fashion community. I've also met some wonderful people and made some friends along the way.

6.What is the story behind your blog name?
 Margo:Coming up with a name for my blog was pretty easy as a teacher {classroom} who loves fashion {couture}. I also enjoy alliterations so the choice was obvious!

7.In your own words what does fashion mean to you?
 Margo: Fashion to me is not only a way to express myself but it is truly a form of art.  I knew I was artistically inclined form an very young age. Not pursuing my talent after high school was a regret of mine for a while. I knew I had to find a way to incorporate art into my every day life. The blog has allowed me to do just that.  The way I dress is an artistic expression of my personality.

8.Do you have an advice for a new blogger??
 Margo: My best advice to a new blogger {and I still consider myself a fairly new blogger} is stick with it!  There have been many times when I get discouraged or overwhelmed {or hate the way I look in my pictures} and want to give up. I just quickly think of the satisfaction of producing a great post, and that gives me the strength to push on. Reader comments are very inspiring too. Another piece of advice ~ don't go into blogging thinking you're going to make money. Do it because you love it and think any money you make as an added bonus!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post.You guys should go check out her blog here. p.s. all of the above pictures are from Margo's blog.

Blogger Spotlight | Missy from Pop of Style

Hi my fashionable people!! I want you guys to meet one of my style crushes Missy from Pop of style, I have been reading her blog for sometime now and I'm having a full on style crush. Not only is she stylish and gorgeous, she has shown me that you can be stylish with out trying.  I mean look at her outfits! Do you see what I'm talking about?? not only is she a pro at mixing prints and patterns. She is just one fabulous stylish sweet blogger. A couple of months ago I started thinking of a way to share all of my favorite bloggers with you guys and that's how blogger spotlight was born, So lets get started. I asked Missy a few questions and here are her answers.

1. How do you describe your style?
  Missy:I would describe my style as classic with a preppy edge. I love to combine timeless staples with pieces that express the fun side of my personality. I love to play with color and mix prints! 

2. What are your closet staples?
  Missy:My closet staples include great statement making flats, classic riding boots, blazers, pearls, over-sized watches, colorful yet classic button down shirts and skinny-fitting jeans/pants! 

3. Who are your style icons?
  Missy:Too many to name! :) I'm inspired by so many stylish women- Olivia Palermo is probably my favorite of all; Taylor Tomasi Hill, Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific, Zoe Saldana, and Kate Middleton are also some of my favorites! I love the way that each of these women combine completely different pieces and have the knack for combining them to create a style that is uniquely their own!

 4. Who or what inspired you to start a blog?
   Missy:I've been thinking about starting a blog for about 5 years now and it took my taking a course for my Masters two years ago to finally figure out how to work the technicalities of the website/blog itself! I've always loved the art of creating an outfit that fits someone's unique style and looking through fashion magazines has been a hobby of mine since I was small. I've always wanted to be able to find my own way of creating and expanding upon my own personal style and that's truly what blogging has done for me. It's been a long, sometimes rough, yet truly fulfilling and rewarding experience that I wouldn't change for the world!

5. How has blogging changed your life? 
   Missy :Since I started blogging almost two years ago I've found out a lot about myself. Through blogging, I've really found my passion and something I honestly look forward to working on every single day. Blogging has been my outlet for stress, creativity, and while doing so I've found that I've gained even more passion, drive, and confidence within myself. You don't realize it at first but the hidden payoffs often can be found in the support you gain from the community; writers/bloggers like you that share your passion and encourage you with every step!

6.What is the story behind your blog name?
  Missy :"Pop Of Style" was a name I decided on after throwing around what seemed to be about a million of ideas! When I started to blog, I originally wanted to combine my two loves- fitness and fashion by posting outfit ideas with a fitness/health tidbit on the bottom. After awhile, I decided to focus on outfits and trends! I used "pop" to signify how color, prints, or a statement piece can make an outfit pop. I wanted my blog name to be simple and catchy! 

7.In your own words what does fashion mean to you?
 Missy :I always loved the quote "Fashion is what is offered to us four times a year; style is what you pick out of that fashion." - Lauren Hutton To me, style is more important than fashion, because style makes a person unique. Fashion trends are certainly not made for everybody or every body. It's those personal touches that brings a person's sense of style together and makes it unique and identifiable.

8.Do you have an advice for a new blogger??
 Missy :My advice for a new blogger would be to keep posting regularly and stay true to your style- this is the only way to maintain your brand's integrity and to gain followers that actually mean something and who will be there for you. What you put into it is definitely what you're going to get out of the experience! Also, supporting others means a lot! In a world where it seems like bloggers are a dime a dozen, it's nice to know that there are people out there who support you and it is so important for you to support them as well. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Can you tell how excited?? I'm so happy that I got to have her on the blog. and don't forget to go check her out here. All the pictures are from Missy's blog.
