It's my pleasure to introduce Yvonne, a D.C. fashionista and Editor of the blog Pink Dollhouse. Read more about Yvonne and her fabulous blog below:
Tell us about yourself, who is Yvonne?
Lovingly sarcastic shoe addict who carries Harpers Bazzar in her handbag like it’s the New York Times. Trendsetter perhaps, but I don’t realize I am on trend until I see it in the magazines and go “oh yeah I have that”. I can be thought of as a risk taker, I took a risk starting a blog, and that blog ended up being the best resume I could have ever created. Secret lover of reality tv and 90’s sitcoms, overall fashion social media junkie who couldn’t imagine leaving D.C.
What can readers expect to find when they visit your blog?
I write the way I speak. If you can’t hear my voice then it is not authentic. My blogging style is Joan Rivers meets fashion, and considering she is the host of Fashion Police makes me love her even more. I am a real girl in a blogger world that is fluffed often by reality, you won’t find self posed pictures while randomly looking over my shoulder. I didn’t even want to post pictures of myself until my blogger friend Ashley of I am Ashley Gaga encouraged me to show readers my personal style.
Where do you find fashion inspiration?
Everywhere, from the magazines to a girl (or guy) wearing something kick awesome on the street. Like Coco Chanel ( who is my fashion go to) “Fashion is not simply a matter of clothes; fashion is in the air, born upon the wind; one intuits it… it comes from ideas, manners, events…"
What trends are you looking forward to wearing this Spring?
I am loving the graphic trend black and white together is so classic but with a pop of color gives it a rocker chic edge. I am also loving the soft pastels with floral trend, I already bought a pair of silk floral printed pants from Nordstrom Rack of course!
I would tell your readers to take a risk and step outside of what is expected. I graduated from college during the recession where job opportunities were a dime a dozen or you were expected to work for free. Instead of making excuses I made the best of it, and sought out opportunities that eventually lead to better ones. Never close an open door because that could be the doorway to something better.
