An Interview with Elanor of Missing Lovebirds
Hello! My name is Elanor and I run Missing Lovebirds, a personal style and life blog. I'm a girl of 18 with an affection for all things vintage and lovely, and I strive to inspire and be inspired every day. My little blog is a collection of all things I love and my adventures throughout life. I currently reside in the northern San Francisco/bay area but have plans to move to the pacific northwest when I leave for college fall of 2012. Blogging has been a wonderful experience thus far, and I will be taking Missing Lovebirds along for the ride as I leave my home and start my life!
What do you do when you're not blogging? What is your job?
Elanor: When I'm not blogging, my job is being a student! I'm in my senior year of high school, so school work takes up most of my time when not blogging. Other than school, I spend time with friends, explore with my boyfriend, and I enjoy reading and listening to music, as well!
How would you describe your personal style?
Elanor: I would describe my personal style as... highly vintage inspired; definitely thrifty. I also I enjoy mixing styles and decades; old with new, etc. Also, my style is dynamic - it is ever-changing by what inspires me, and that's the way I like it!
What inspires you?
Elanor: First and foremost, probably fellow style bloggers. But also, looking into the past inspires me, as I love incorporating vintage styles into my outfits. As often as I can, I try to be inspired by the world around me because there is so much out there!
Favorite item of clothing in your closet:
Elanor: I am so bad at choosing favorites! I just thrifted this beautiful late 50s/early 60s vintage dress... so I'll say that's my current favorite!
Biggest style splurge and/or deal:
Elanor: Biggest style splurge... I bought these awesome suede heeled boots for 50 dollars... I'm not much of a splurg-er as you may know. ;)
What are key pieces from your wardrobe that you find yourself wearing over and over?
Elanor: Key pieces as of lately are definitely blouses. Anything with a collar I've been loving.
Do you keep your older clothes or do you like to keep your closet small and organized?
Elanor: I keep my older clothes, which is a problem with my already limited closet space! I am working towards getting rid of things I don't wear much anymore, damaged clothes, etc.
What's your latest obsession?
Elanor: My latest obsession are collars and blouses as I stated above. I'm especially fond of sheer blouses! Soo lovely.
I can't live without...
Elanor: I can't live without... I suppose my camera and phone. But honestly, I could probably live without all of this! ;)
If you could have one wish granted, what would it be?
Elanor: If I could have one wish granted, I suppose it would be to have my nerves for the future calmed! I'm a worrier.
3 fun facts about you:
Elanor: 1. I have very poor vision and I wear contacts. 2. I was born with very dark brown/black hair. 3. I'm a complete and total cat lady!
What is your favorite thing to do on a lazy Sunday?
Elanor: If I'm not going to church; sleep in late, watch movies... :)
