An Interview with aaucello
aaucello, a Smashionista since 07-Feb-10, recently had an interview with us.
Angelina is a Model/Actress from the NYC/NJ area. As one of Smashion's sellers, she believes in "fashionista swag without the ritzy tag". Check out her blog, Fashion on a Dime.
What do you do when you're not blogging? What is your job?
aaucello: I am a full-time working SAG/AFTRA Actress and Model in NYC. When I am not blogging or working, I love to travel!
How did you come up with your blog name?
aaucello: I love the thrill of the hunt when it comes to fashion. Plus, I want to show women that it IS possible to own great designer pieces without breaking the bank- hence the slogan, "Fashionista Swag Without the Ritzy Tag" ;)
How would you describe your personal style?
aaucello: I love to play dress up! I love going out and dressing in cute, trendy dresses with statement heels and clutches!
Who or what has been your greatest fashion influence?
aaucello: Celebrity wise? Rihanna- she knows how to look sexy, trendy and sophisticated all at the same time. On a personal level, I'd have to credit the wardrobe team on the movie/television sets I work on- they have taught me to put together great outfits, and I get a glimpse at all the latest/future trends
Which label dominates your closet?
aaucello: I'm not sure if only one label takes the lead... yet.
What is your nerdiest hobby?
aaucello: I am guilty of playing church bingo on way too many Saturday nights!
Who is/are your favorite shoe designer(s)?
aaucello: I LOVE Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Prada, Manolos, etc. I never pay full price though- the best part about owning high-end designer shoes is the bargain stories I have behind each pair!
What would be the one fashion tip you would give to a friend?
aaucello: Never pay full price!
What is your fantasy splurge?
aaucello: Splurge doesn't exist in my dictionary :-P
Where are you from and what are your top three favorite places to shop in your city?
aaucello: I am from the NJ/NYC area. Truthfully, my favorite places to shop include Gilt, Craiglist, and eBay because I love finding a bargain and never have time to shop in stores when I am working. I know my size conversions in all my favorite brands to ensure a perfect fit. :)
Three things in your closet you cannot live without:
aaucello: Clutches, Heels (I am 5'3!), and Dresses!
Who are your favorite bloggers we don't know about?
aaucello: My friend Paula has a pretty impressive fashion blog- fashionfeen.com!
