Introducing Elle of Eat Style Play

I love Elle's style! The woman can rock a dress or a skirt with a fab pair of heels with ease, you'll see what I mean when you her pictures below.  I prefer dresses and skirts to pants so she's a woman after my own heart. Along with owning and expressing her fab personal style, Elle is a sweetheart. How do I know this? She supports her fellow sister bloggers. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Elle and her fab blog, Eat Style Play. 

So tell us about yourself, who is Elle? 
I'm a native Washingtonian, who's passion is to create food delicious food, create my own style, and have fun. It took me a few years to get to a point where I was confident about my love for all things aforementioned. 

 What inspired you to start your blog? 
 4 years ago, I started a gossip blog. It wasn't until my grandfather made a comment about how America is sucked into celebrities and don't have priorities that I changed my blog. I then went for an inspirational blog finding cool items, and sharing my ideas of style. Eventually I started posting personal post. I was hesitant about posting style pictures, and finally started to do so after a little encouragement from my other blogger friends. My food post were inspired by my grandmother who taught me how to cook, and blessed me with the skill of creating a meal out of nothing. 

 How would you describe your style? 
 This is hard, I have style that changes, I love wearing leather, I love having an edgy feel. But there are sometimes when I want to just throw on jeans and a vintage tee. My style is all over the place depending on my mood. Just the other day I felt a little gothy. I wore a long black lace coverup, dark wine colored lips and a fang necklace. It wasn't too crazy, but i had watched all 3 or 4 Underworld Movies, I wore it well, and people loved it. Sometime i'm inspired by the craziest things. 

 Where do you get fashion inspiration?
I get my inspiration from magazines, like V magazine, Nylon, People Stylewatch. I find it in blogs as well, my favorite being Where Did You Get That. I love Karens style because she is able to dress in so many styles, and I feel like I'd wear so many of her outfits. I'm also inspired by the Man Repeller, simply because she doesn't care, and we both share that feeling of loving fashion no matter what men think. I've always had a weird taste growing up and showing up in head to toe red wasn't the best when trying to bag a little boyfriend in junior high haha. I never got hit on and I know it was because I scared half of them away with some of the crazy stuff I used to wear like platform Chanel Shoes that my step-dad found at the thrift store. I was already tall, and now I was taller then most of the boys. I got Zero play. 

What are three of your favorite pieces in your closet? 
 Lanvin Oxfords that I'm ready to rock this fall. Prada Color Block Wedges that I brought on my vacation in Rome. American eagle Outfitters Skinnies, that I always run to when I'm out and about.
