An Interview with Ana of The Fashionista Commuter
The Fashionista Commuter is the personal blog of 25-year-old Ana Gonzales from the Philippines. This online diary chronicles not only her travels, foodie-life as a vegetarian, her accessories business, and family and friends stories, but also her wearable style. Even her long commutes just to go to work, hangouts, and events give her tales to blog about.
What do you do when you're not blogging? What is your job?
Ana: I manage my own online shop where I sell accessories I design and made. You can view my designs at at www.shopanagon.tk and www.facebook.com/anagoncollection :)
Who is/are your favorite shoe designer(s)?
Ana: There's so much lovely high-heeled shoes in the market, but right now I really really want to have all the Toms and Sanuk in the world! They are just the comfiest!
Three things in your closet you cannot live without:
Ana: Denim shorts, loose long tops, and floral dresses.
What is your favorite city to shop in?
Ana: I love Hong Kong! In my country (Philippines), definitely in love with Manila and Makati fashion districts!
What are you currently grooving to?
Ana: Katy Perry songs, haha!
Biggest style splurge and/or deal:
Ana: I always spend on shoes! Everything else I can get in thrift stores, but I always invest on a good pair of shoes, especially when I travel. The last time I went to Singapore, I brought home 3 pairs!
How are you able to stay fashionable without spending a lot of $$? What are your tips and where do you shop?
Ana: If you're on a budget and you want LOTS of clothes, go thrift shopping! I love rummaging through the racks and racks of beautiful clothes with dirt-cheap price tags! Also, try to reconstruct or DIY! A little tinkering on your dress or top will make it look brand new!
In your opinion, every woman should own:
Ana: A little black dress and a man's white shirt.
4 favorite fashion accessories:
Ana: Statement bib necklace, turquoise rings, long necklaces, and stacking on assorted and colorful beads bracelets.
What are key pieces from your wardrobe that you find yourself wearing over and over?
Ana: I love my man's white shirt! It's so versatile, I can wear it over and over again and just change my accessories or wear a skirt or shorts or jeans with it! :)
Favorite beauty product of all time? Why?
Ana: Lip gloss, and L'Oreal Base Magique--it keeps me shine-free!
Do you have any comfort foods and what memories do you have associated with them?
Ana: M&Ms with nuts, this yellow pack of goodies bring back good carefree high school memories. :)
