no more occupied - not yet retired. Love it!

When did you first start getting crafty and creative with fashion?

ever since I was little I was intrigued from the fact that my hands could make things. It all started in 6th grade, making earrings and wire wrapped jewelry to sell between classes.

Who are your favorite fashionistas and designers?

Madonna. Always ahead of her times.

What are your ultimate style tips?

Follow your heart, it works: even in fashion !Sometimes "less is more", but I can see how "more is more" as well. So, back to the point: fashion needs to go hand in hand with your mood: that is why sometimes you look at yourself in the mirror with an outfit and totally hate it, and the day after could be your best look.

If you could borrow one thing from a celebrities wardrobe, what & who would you choose?

Rachel Zoe's shoe closet. With all the shoes tucked into it, of course :) !

Which fashion blogs do you love to read?

Some are pure editorials, like, I follow many knitting inspirational blogs for example, and DIY blogs... often I check to get a glance of what's happening in the DIY world before my coffee in the morning... then I go to my Bloglovin' list.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I'm terrible at cooking, and I have a spectacular black thumb: anything else that I could do with my hands... count me in.

Other hobbies... I have three dogs and I like to teach them tricks, tried some agility but both my dog and I got bitten from another dog, so we gave up (although we were really promising!), and love outdoor sports.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Creativity is just like anything else, if you keep nurturing it, it will grow bigger and better !
