Often times I get asked questions and often times I get asked the same questions. This led me to this conclusion: Make a Q&A page. I know, simple and sweet, yet it just came to me. If you have any other questions, feel free to tweet me or Facebook me.
When did you start Breakfast with Fashion?
I started BwF in mid-December 2011 sitting on my boyfriend’s parents’ living room floor. It was all started because I was bored and wanted to do something. If you told me then what it would be now, I would have said you need to go take your crazy pills.
Where are the photos from your banner from?
My absolute amaze banner (you know it’s gorg) is c/o Kaylyn Parrish. The photo credits (in a left to right manner) are as follows: Breakfast with Fashion “Gray and Blue,” Chanel Spring 2012 Runway Show from Allure Magazine, Vintage Inspired Photo, Blake Lively in Bullett Magazine, Kate Moss at the Ritz in VOGUE, Luv AJ Lookbook, Three Great Fashionistas, Kate Moss in David Yurman, Karlie Kloss in Elie Saab Fall 2012. Kaylyn’s online portfolio to come!
Who takes the photos for your site?
Well some of them are credited to outside places, some of them are from shop pages in order to make product collages, but the ones that are originals are either taken by myself or my boyfriend. However, I will always credit the source in which I found the photo.
How do I know if you are just promoting a brand or if you truly believe in the product?
First off, I would never promote a brand that I didn’t think was worth. Second, I was journalism major in school—do you understand how much ethics and transparency are drilled into your skull? Moral of the story, I only promote products I would use and I will always let you know through calling the post a dedicated post, saying straight up it is a partnership, or if I get a product and am wearing it, using a c/o.
How old are you?
Older than 15, but less that 64.
Do you have any internships?
I was the head/managing editor with CollegeFashionista and have been an editor since May of 2010. I started out with the site in 2009 as a Style Guru. I then became one of the first editors for the site in May 2010. From there I became the first editor for CollegeFashionista International (January 2011). Finally, I became the head editor.
