An Interview with Catie of Fleur d'Elise
Hi, I'm Catie from Fleur d'Elise. I live in Seattle, WA with my husband and a tiny dog, named Frida. I started my fashion blog in 2010 and it's been one of the best decisions I've ever made. Blogging may be a lot of work, but all it feels like is fun!
What do you do when you're not blogging? What is your job?
Catie: I am in the exciting world of property management. I also nanny and tutor. It sounds like a lot, but it's not. I actually have time enough to add on a fourth job! Instead I design cards and do other crafty things.
How did you come up with your blog name?
Catie: My middle name is Elise and I'm also part French. My mom was actually born in the same village that Joan of Arc was from, so the Fleur de Lis symbol is very important to my family. My sisters and mom all have tattoos, but I'm afraid of needles, so I just named my blog after the symbol.
What label(s)/store(s) do you favor?
Catie: I love and can AFFORD H&M and Forever21. I would love to shop at J. Crew and Barney's regularly. Someday I'll own a lot of Jil Sander and Chloe.
3 fun facts about you:
Catie: 1. I have been fascinated by insects since I was very little; I actually have a collection! 2. When I was 14, I made my mom get me a Russian tutor. I'm not fluent, but I can still read it. 3. I lived my dream of living in England. Unfortunately it was only for 7 months.
Biggest style splurge and/or deal:
Catie: Probably my Chloe flats. I got them at a sale at Barney's. They were the last pair and were magically just my size. The Shoe Gods were smiling upon me that day.
In your opinion, every woman should own:
Catie: A classic oxford shirt. It sounds boring, but you need staple pieces to build off of! What if all your shirts had beading or crazy patterns? You would only be able to wear one at a time. No layering! Oxfords can be dressed up or down, and the color magically goes with everything.
What 5 items do you always have in your purse?
Catie: My vintage eel skin pocket book, Weleda lip-balm, my iPad, floss, and at least one pair of fun sunglasses!
What's your favorite animal?
Catie: This is hard. I'm kinda nerdy when it comes to animals and nature. I'm gonna have to go with beetles, though.
My favorite color combo is...
Catie: Robin's Egg Blue and Goldenrod.
I can't live without...
Catie: Sugar. It's going to kill me.
I feel my best when:
Catie: My feet don't hurt. I've had a lot of problems with them this past year. It's amazing how much everything depends on your health! Be careful in those platform heels, girls!
List three foods you ate today:
Catie: Three of my favorite foods: Egg, toast, cherry pie.
