An Interview with Vanessa of Take Only Memories
Hi, I'm Vanessa from Take only Memories. I recently moved from NYC to Berlin where I started my style blog in order to have a reason to wear all my lovely clothes even though I'm working from home.
What do you do when you're not blogging? What is your job?
Vanessa: I work freelance as many things. All art related (if I can help it). I would like to work as an actress full time.
How would you describe your personal style?
Vanessa: Different every day, depending on my mood. I do love vintage clothing!
Who or what has been your greatest fashion influence?
Vanessa: I am a total film geek and get very influenced by styles in movies. That is another reason why my style can vary so much.
3 fun facts about you:
Vanessa: 1. I love watching TV shows but I don't own a TV. 2. I've lived in 8 different cities in three countries. 3. I would like to go to Madagascar to help lemurs. They are just so cute!
What inspires you?
Biggest style splurge and/or deal:
Vanessa: The biggest deal I've ever gotten was on a Nicole Farhi leather jacket that originally cost about $2000 and I got it for about $60 at an employee sale. Oh yes!
How are you able to stay fashionable without spending a lot of $$? What are your tips and where do you shop?
Vanessa: I really only buy things in the sale or second hand. I also don't buy that much clothing. I like to re-style the things I have. My tip for buying vintage clothing is to always check the sale section. Sometimes the items only have little faults that you can easily mend yourself.
In your opinion, every woman should own:
Vanessa: A nail file.
4 things you can't live without:
Vanessa: 1. Chocolate! 2. Sparkling water 3. Sunshine 4. My laptop
What is your favorite thing to do in the summer?
Vanessa: Eat ice cream!
Do you have any phobias?
Vanessa: I'm totally neurotic, so yeah, many. Examples: Wolves and socks rubbing together.
Three things that are always in my fridge:
Vanessa: 1. Milk 2.strawberry jam 3. something that's gone off
