Sam from Style By Kys
I’m Samantha, a psychology student living in Sydney trying to satisfy her addiction to shopping to fill her overflowing closet. I started my current blog over a year ago as a creative outlet for myself since leaving high school. My blog is just a way of expressing my appreciation of beautiful clothes, posting editorials I love, clothing that would make a great addition to my wardrobe as well as a travel diary.
How did you first get into fashion and blogging?
I started getting into fashion from the age of about 15 when I discovered Tumblr. Editorial shoots with models dressed in stunning clothing, detailed shots of accessories and of course the street style snaps were very dominant on my dashboard and since then fashion has grown to be a huge part of my life and I have never looked back.
As for blogging, ever since I discovered Rumi Neely from Fashiontoast when I was 16 that’s when I started taking an interest in blogging.
Where are some of your favourite places to shop?
I spend most of my time browsing online as I don’t have enough time during the week to visit the shops. So online, it’s the usual suspects of ASOS, Topshop, Shopbop, My-wardrobe & Net-a-Porter, and when I do get the chance to go to the shops, I am most likely at David Jones as they have all my favourite brands under the one roof!
Which bloggers do you look up to and why?
Rumi Neely from Fashiontoast; I am still an avid follower of her blog as I absolutely love her photos!
I also adore the Australian bloggers such as Margaret Zhang from Shine by Three and Nicole from Gary Pepper Vintage; it’s an amazing to watch their journey on how far these two lovely ladies have come in terms of blogging and the amazing opportunities it’s given them. Despite their success, they are such lovely people to talk to and are extremely down to earth.
Christie from Dark Blue Stripes wants to know: What has been your most rewarding blogging experience to date?
It would have to be meeting local based bloggers and getting to know them personally and calling them my friends. Also, attending my first fashion week this year, it was such a great experience that I would love to do it all over again.
What should we ask the next interviewee?
If you could shoot in a place, anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
