Tell us a bit about yourself.

Hello, my name is Melanie and I am a personal style blogger for Aetherlily. I love fashion and clothes, which is why I created a blog where I can express my style and hope to inspire others. I enjoy spending my free time by the ocean and eating food, especially anything sweet!

Describe your personal style.

My personal style ranges from feminine and sweet to something more bohemian, vintage, or edgy. I tend to not stick to one style because it’s more enjoyable to play around with different material, patterns, and staple pieces. I usually wear clothing with neutral and nude tones but on another days I would prefer darker or warmer colors.

Who are your favorite fashion designers?

My favorite fashion designers and brands are Free People, Dolce Vita, Topshop, DANNIJO, Mango, Helmut Lang, LF Stores, Jeffrey Campbell, Madewell, Chanel, and Steve Madden.

Which celebrity style do you like the most and why?
I love the Olsen twins. They look good in anything!

Where do you get your style inspiration from?

My style inspiration comes from many of the other personal style bloggers out there. They really know how to put together amazing pieces that it makes me wish I had their entire wardrobe!

What is the main item to buy on your list right now?

Hm, my main item I would like to buy right now is a Chanel quilted bag. But I know I could never have it because it is way beyond what I can afford, haha.

What’s your latest dress purchase and where did you wear it?

My latest dress purchases was a fringed lace tunic dress from Free People which I wore to the beach in Miami and a knitted low back dress from Urban Outfitters which I haven’t had the chance to wear yet but can’t wait to! Just waiting for the right opportunity.

What’s your favorite accessory?

My favorite accessory are shoes! Shoes complete the outfit, and I definitely believe they are a girl’s best friend. They make you feel confident about yourself while walking down the street like it’s your personal runway.

What are your top 3 cities in the world?

Tokyo, Paris, New York

Curly hair vs. Straight hair ?

Curly hair. Just because I would have straight hair every day, and only get the chance to curl my hair for dressy occasions or when I have enough time when I get up in the morning.
