An Interview with Mars of fashion insouciance
I am a 21-year old woman who loves fashion not just because of the sophistication and glamor but also because it is one of the greatest inspirations that introduce millions of people to creativity, art appreciation, and subliminal beauty. Blogging for me is more than just a mere hobby or pastime; it is also a means of expressing yourself while honing your fashion inclinations. Say hi to me at fashion insouciance.
What do you do when you're not blogging? What is your job?
Marinela: I work as an editor, editing and writing abstracts for scientific papers concerning the plant sciences. That's mostly what I do when I'm not blogging. Other than that, I read, play with my pets, visit scenic places around town, sample local delicacies...
3 fun facts about you:
Marinela: 1. I own five pets. 2. I cannot dance. 3. In college, I was the only person in my volleyball class who had to take a "written exam" aside from the practical one because I sucked (and still do) at sports.
What is your favorite city to shop in?
Marinela: Makati City, Philippines. But I mostly do my shopping online.
Favorite item of clothing in your closet:
Marinela: My floral dress with a heart cutout detail at the chest.
How has your blog changed over the months/years?
Marinela: When I started blogging I wrote too few words and thought the photos should do the talking. Now I write to my heart's content, detailing every aspect of my outfit that I want to discuss with my readers.
In your opinion, every woman should own:
Marinela: High heels. Whether you're 5-foot or 6-foot tall, a pair of heels will ALWAYS make you look more beautiful and feel more powerful.
One trend you would like to never see again is:
Marinela: Tights as pants. It's just not right. I shudder every time I see pantylines and butt cheeks through those almost sheer tights.
What 5 items do you always have in your purse?
Marinela: 1. Cellphone. I feel detached to the world when I don't have my cellphone with me. 2. Compact mirror. 3. Lip balm. My lips are always dry. 4. Handkerchief. My mother wouldn't let me leave the house without a handkerchief. 5. Handy umbrella.
How long does it take you to decide on an outfit to post?
Marinela: When I am struck with an inspiration, I immediately look into my closet to see if I have pieces conforming to that inspiration. It usually takes me less than 5 minutes to put together an outfit.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Marinela: Chocolates. I cannot stop myself from eating lots and lots of chocolates.
Your most worn shoes:
Marinela: My 4-inch nude Parisian heels. The color goes with everything, and the height is just enough for everyday wear.
Your most worn piece of jewelry:
Marinela: Two rings from my boyfriend of 6 years.
