Today's giveaway comes from a super-talented fashion student and bow enthusiast, Michelle-esqu. Michelle recently opened a new shop where she sells hair accessories and more! So I'm so thankful that she chose to celebrate by hosting a giveaway here.
But first, let's learn a little about Michelle:
1. Tell us a bit about yourself
My name is Michelle and I run a fashion blog. I currently in school to get my Bachelors Degree in Fashion Design. I thought I was fit to become a doctor (what a stereotype!), but I ended up going to art school instead. I'm not sure where fashion is going to take me, but it doesn't matter to me considering that I really love doing anything that requires creativity. I am currently an intern for one of Orange County's (southern California) local designers. Maybe one day I'll open my own clothing line, who knows! :)
2. What made you decide to open up a handmade shop?
I've opened so many shops in the past years, that opening a handmade shop wasn't all that new to me. I have designed t-shirts and sold vintage clothes, but this is the first time that I have opened a handmade shop online. I am obsessed with bows! I wanted to share with everyone else my obsession with bows by selling them online. I really hope you guys check out my store. I promise I'll have more bow-related things soon (other than hair accessories, of course).
3. What is your favorite part about blogging?
My favorite part about blogging is getting to know my readers. When people leave me comments, I feel really great inside. People take out the time to read your posts and really get to know you better when you blog about your life. I've met a lot of my real life friends and my current boyfriend of almost two years through blogging as well!
4. What is your personal style motto?
Haha everyone asks me this question and I am not sure how to answer it. My style motto would have to be: Don't wear it to impress others, wear it to express yourself. I want to say this shouldn't have to apply just in fashion but with life as well. Do it for you and not for anyone else.
