You have seen Ashleigh of The Blonde Silhouette on BNE Style before, featured for her impeccable style and as a guest contributor. This time she is in the hot seat, answering questions about her love of fashion and personal style which she describes as:
“Constantly evolving! I am a very feminine dresser who loves bold graphic prints, bright colour blocking and multi texture! My signature style sees me fusing classic luxe pieces with modern structured prints/fits.
When it comes to accessories I definitely favour a minimalist attitude and would rather make a statement with a luxury piece – ie, my favourite Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM handbag, simple yet striking!”
What are you wearing?
I am channelling a very Parisian influence with a classic monochrome shift dress by Toi Et Moi (Toi Et Moi is French for ‘you and me’ and is a Parisian-chic inspired Australian label based in Sydney). I love the simplicity and flowing form! My favourite feature in this number is the neon lace inserts which lifts the print and adds a vintage feel to the look.
Keeping with the Parisian theme, I have teamed this dress with a statement Louis Vuitton tote, capturing the luxuriousness of the Champs Elysees. A final touch includes a dash of monochrome accessories from Lovisa and a bold Jo Mercer mule.
What are your favourite clothing stores?
I love to day dream amongst the high end luxury of Louis Vuitton- although an occasional indulgence. I regularly treat myself to pieces from Sportsgirl, Witchery, Sheike, Country Road, Veronika Maine and Myer.
Who is your style icon or someone that inspires you creatively?
Like any other true fashionista, I idolise the lifestyle of Carrie Bradshaw! She is effortlessly cool, chic and classic- not to mention her shoe collection is most enviable!
What do you love about blogging and working in the fashion industry?
Meeting and collaborating with like-minded fashionistas! That is what inspires me to blog- being surrounded by the eclectic styles of fashion savvy individuals.
