Interview with Stefanie Kunkman from Steffy's Pros and Cons

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m sponsoring Steffy’s Pros and Cons for the month of July [my link's on the left side of her page].  It feels so great to be collaborating with one of my favorite bloggers.  I wanted to know more about her style and blog, so I interviewed her and I’m sharing it with my readers.  Hope you enjoy it…



What was your very first motivation to start blogging?
I started to blog originally back in the days of live-journal. Steffy's Pros and Cons was originally a personal little diary where I would write and share pictures but after browsing fashion blogs for a little bit I decided to change its direction!

Why Steffy’s Pros and Cons?
As mentioned above, Steffy's Pros and Cons was originally more personal (the older entries have been deleted). I started it after a big breakup, and would write my "pros" and "cons" of each day to try and see the bright side of life!  So... the name stems from that. I still see it as a place to document my ups, downs and everything in between!

Who is your biggest inspiration?
Other bloggers of course! I specifically adore the styles of Flashes of Style and Fancy Treehouse. I also love Twiggy (but who doesn't) and Edie Sedgwick!


How would you describe your style? 
  I would describe it as vintage inspired and extremely girly. Anything polka dots is a go!

How is fashion lifestyle from where you are living right now?
Fashion goes two ways in Miami. You're either "runaway chic" and you love all of the high-end brands or you're thrifty like me. I think thrifty is becoming more "in." I am not ashamed of waiting at 9am outside of thrift stores with all the miami crackheads!
 
What do you want to achieve with your blog?
 I want to network of course, meet like minded individuals who have the same interests as me, share with the world ways to dress cute but affordable but most of all get my foot in the door of the fashion world. I am returning to fashion school this month, and would love to either work as a merchandiser or a buyer and eventually own my own vintage shop (in store.. i already have my online shop Tea and Tulips). I think this is a step in the right direction!

What recommendations would you give my readers and fashion bloggers to have a successful blog?
I say keep your content true to yourself, post original content and make sure your images are of good quality. All of my favorite blogs have great photographs!
