Here I am, a little over a month into this new venture of mine, and I thought it would be a good time to take a look at how far I've come, and where I want to go with Styleiish.
Ok, so Who am I? My name is Sonia, I'm a thirty-something wife and mother, and I really really really like everything to do with fashion, shopping, and styling.
Until recently, I had never given too much thought about joining the "style blog" universe. There are so many fabulous blogs out there, and I enjoyed reading them, but never thought to do one myself. The idea started to brew when some friends said, "you should just blog about how you put it all together, it'll make it easier for those of us who don't know".... and I thought, maybe that's something I can do.
On to the "what"... I wanted to create something a little different from the blogs I'd been reading. Like I said, there's some really fabulous blogs out there, and they provide great inspiration. However my MO is a little different. First of all, I love a good deal; I don't want to show a beautiful top that costs $50- to me, that's too much. Second, I wanted it to be about HOW to wear the clothes and shoes and accessories, not just where to find them. The more I thought about, the more I liked the idea of creating an amateur stylist site, hence Styleiish was born.
Where... well of course, with blogging and Instagram, it's worldwide. I'm so pleased to see interest for Styleiish from all over the world. Personally though, I'm based out of the Vancouver area in Beautiful British Columbia.
When... Styleiish has been on Instagram for about a month and a half now, and live on the blog for just over a month. Its been a lot of fun and I've learned an incredible amount, and I continue to do so every day. The style blogging community consists of so many positive, helpful and stylish women.
And lastly, Why... why did I start Styleiish? Simply because I felt there was a need out there for simple, basic styling advice. I'm no expert by any means, but I'm all about sharing what I know how to do, and learning from others about the things I don't know.
My hope is that I can entertain, inspire and help women through Styliish :)
