An Interview with Mary of Fashionbirds
I'm Mary from Fashionbirds, a blog on which I tell my personal fashion fairy tales and my style diary with which I hope to inspire others. I am an adventurous, happy girl from Switzerland currently living in the Netherlands but I can never stay long in one place... I hope to live in every fashionable city in the world once. One of my biggest wishes is to have a voice in fashion someday and have a walk-in closet.
What do you do when you're not blogging? What is your job?
Mary: At the moment I am studying International Marketing Management in the Netherlands and I love it. Fashion has always been a big passion in my life that’s why I will start studying Fashion Marketing next semester.
How would you describe your personal style?
Mary: My style is chic with an edgy twist; I like e.g. combining silk or chiffon fabrics with black leather. I love adding little details to casual outfits and sometimes I enjoy wearing really extraordinary pieces.
What is your fantasy splurge?
Mary: There are many… At the moment I would love to have a Céline classic box bag.
Where are you from and what are your top three favorite places to shop in your city?
Mary: I moved to the Netherlands 3 years ago. Amsterdam is a great city to shop: I adore the store Nummer 9 at the Prinsengracht and a shop called Shoobaloo which has great (designer) deals during sale season. There is an area called “9 straatjes” (9 little streets) which is perfect for a shopping stroll
3 fun facts about you:
Mary: 1. I love to play Pokémon on an old Gameboy. 2. I am obsessed with nail polishes and lipsticks. 3. I put one particular salad sauce which I bring from Switzerland on everything I eat,.
What inspires you?
Mary: Street style photos, fashion blogs and picture books about Brigitte Bardot inspire me when I’m seeking fashion inspiration.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Mary: (Online) shoe shopping. I am addicted to high heels.
What is your favorite thing to do in the summer?
Mary: I’m a real summer girl; I enjoy barbequing with friends, lying in the park and enjoying the sun and of course I love summer sale!
What's your favorite animal?
Mary: Strangely, my favorite animals are moose. I know they’re huge but I think they’re kind of cute.
People would be surprised to know that I...
Mary: … am really, really afraid of frogs and totes. I am literally getting a panic attack when I see one.
If I could escape to any time and place, I would go to...
Mary: I’d escape to Paris in the early 1920’s to absorb the atmosphere and charm of that beautiful city.
Mary: Lots of sunshine, a good book and a bowl of ripe strawberries.
