I am happy to have Alina from The Closet Crush as a guest on Beauty and the Mist. Let’s dive into her fashionable world and see why I love her style!

-What triggered your decision to start blogging and how did you come up with your blog’s name?

I started my blog right after I took the Bar exam to become an attorney.  I always wanted an outlet to the everyday routine and blogging/fashion has always been my passion.  I came up with the name as a result of always using the term “crushin’ on” a particular item.  I said why not generalize it for the entire closet…The Closet Crush.

-What was your relationship with fashion before starting your fashion blog journey? Have you always been a fashion enthusiast?

I’ve always loved seeing and trying to style upcoming and new trends. I always enjoyed looking at what other people wear, especially living in New York – you’ll see anything.

 

-Is fashion a part of your every day lifestyle?

Yes, fashion is definitely part of my everyday lifestyle.  I really can’t leave the house without being content about what I’m wearing…even running out to the store. I know, it has come to that!

-Is it difficult to combine a fashion blog with motherhood?

Definitely – it is hard to maintain the fashion blog with motherhood and a full-time job.  But I look at my blog as a hobby and to get away from the everyday lifestyle – it is sort of my escape. And I enjoy it! I can’t think of stopping it anytime soon; it’s become second nature to me now.

-Are there any necessary qualifications in order to become a fashion blogger?

I don’t think there are any certain qualifications.  One thing you definitely have to be is determined.  If you are not determined in what you want and what your goals are – then you will not keep up with your blog.  No matter how hard it is, I always strive to do my best and keep going! But if it is your passion – then go for it!

-Do you maintain your own style or are you a faithful follower of the latest fashion trends?

I say that I stay true to my own style and also keep up with happening trends.  If there is a trend that I wouldn’t particularly be fond of, I won’t try it out.  If you have been following me for a while, I generally stay true to being simple, but making a subtle statement.

-What is your trait that makes you stand out from other fashion bloggers?

There are SO many fashion bloggers out there, it is such an over-saturated market now.  But, to stand out – I am myself.  I talk to my followers like I talk to my friends.  Being an attorney/mom/blogger – I try to incorporate the multi-tasking into my blog and sort of give my followers a glimpse of my everyday life.  I recently starting doing this but incorporate work outfits and inspiration into my blog too.

-What advice would you give to a girl who wants to start her own fashion blog?

As far as advise to those who want to start their own blog – just go for it! Do it.  The more time that passes, the more you will regret it! At least you’ll know what it entails instead of always wondering “what if”
