I emailed Slim the moment I came across her blog. She owns her style - it's bold, self-assured, fabulous, but most importantly it's hers. She embraces her individuality, which is reflected in her style. For that she's a style inspiration (in fact you'll find loads of inspiration when you visit Slim's blog). It is my pleasure to introduce Slim and her fab blog All Things Slim.
So tell us about yourself, who is Slim?
I'm a smooth bi-coastal player and lover of fashion and music. Especially rachet music lol. I have been living between NYC and LA since '04 and work freelance as a stylist. My friends would probably say I'm kind of insane, but I give really good advice.
What inspired you to start a style blog?
Pressure from my friends. Fashion is my heart beat. I had been meaning to do it to shut them up for a while, but I always felt that I wouldn't have enough time. It is definitely a huge time committment, but it is so worth it. I have met so many dope people and the feedback has been amazing.
Where do you get fashion inspiration?
Everywhere. People watching and music give me random ideas... New York and LA have completely different approaches to style. Over the years, I have found a way to pull from both and make it work. I will say that being in New York for longer than 6 months will make you wear black daily though lol. Coming back to Cali makes me want to wear color.
Where do you like to shop?
Online mostly. I can easily become obsesed with a certain item and sites like Polyvore help me track it down. I love Nasty Gal. For actual store visits, I like Top Shop and Soho in general in NYC, Melrose and The Wasteland in LA.
What are three of your favorite pieces in your closet?
I have a pink body-con dress that I swear was made specifically for my body and coloring, my black Top Shop skinny jeans (I have 7 pairs) , and my cape coat.
What are you looking forward to wearing this summer?
Lots of neon rompers and high waist skirts, and cut off denim shorts. Oh, and open toe shoes. Not seeing my toe nail polish half of the year depresses me.
Anything else?Not that I can think of, but if you'd like to knw anything else, just let me know.
