Today’s Interview is with Carrie Critton (CC Loves Blog Owner). And here are our questions!
Q: How did you first become interested in fashion and why is it important for you?
Carrie: I have been interested in fashion since I was old enough to pick out my own clothes. As my mom tells it, I used to select my outfits as early as nursery school! As I say on my blog, fashion is my sustenance! It is a fabulous form of self-expression and something I get excited about every day! I have been fashion blogging for nearly five years now, and it still is just as fun and fresh as the day I started!
Q: What inspires you? Who are your favorite designers?
Carrie: Art and architecture inspire me immensely. I was an art history major in college! My favorite designers/labels these days are Monique Lhuillier, Jason Wu, Versace, Gucci, Three Floor, and Burberry Prorsum. For shoes, I am loving Charlotte Olympia and Nicholas Kirkwood.
Q: What was the most expensive thing you have ever bought?
Carrie: With my first paycheck as an attorney, I purchased a gorgeous St. John military coat at Saks Fifth Avenue. It is a classic piece and I still wear it today, 12+ years later!
Q: What are your cost saving tips? Can you share them with our readers?
Q: What things do you choose to save money on?
Carrie: I generally save money on cosmetics and hair care by shopping at my local pharmacy rather than at a department store. I also purchase less expensive, costume jewelry rather than fine jewelry.
Q: Do you have money saving tips for our readers when it comes to fashion?
Carrie: My cardinal rule is: If you have any doubts about a purchase, forget it! Only buy what you truly love. Shop at less expensive sites like forever21.com and asos.com for trendy items. Make your bigger purchases only for timeless and lasting items that you will have in your wardrobe for a lifetime. Splurge on shoes and handbags.
Q: What do you think about taking out a loan for buying something you love? Have you ever taken a loan?
Carrie: I have only taken out a loan for a car.
Q: What are your TOP 5 favorite fashion blogs and why? Do you mind if we interview them too?
Here are my five favorite fashion blogs… I’m sure that my fellow fashionistas would love to be interviewed, too!
Thank you so much for interviewing me!
