Tell us about how Fashion for Lunch began.
I started my blog four and a half years ago and I expected it to last a week, but I caught the blogging bug and here I am! I was working in fashion at the time and I wanted to share some of the amazing things I had seen as well as snippets of my own extensive wardrobe!
How would you describe your personal style?
90's Courtney Love meets a cartoon drawing of Bet Lynch. I love coloured faux fur, glitter accessories, chunky heels, vintage vibes, bleached hair, designer labels and silk scarves. I'm big into accessories too!
Where do you go for style and content inspiration?
A number of places really. My friends have great style, I find blogs and Instagram a constant source of inspiration, and I have a few go-to stores where I find some of the newest and coolest designers around! I have always loved vintage fashion too, so I love looking at old films, books, and musicians for style inspo too!
You share a lot of fun and colorful flat lays on your Instagram. Any tips for aspiring flat lay wizards?
Firstly, thank you! That's super kind of you! I always think about colours and shapes, I move things around and try different objects and then eventually I think 'ok, that's kinda cute!' Just keep trying new things and experimenting, after a couple of hundred photos, you should get one! It's a little bit like taking a good selfie!
What tips do you have for someone who is trying to grow their following?
I know this is 'blogging rule no.1' but content is really is king! Take the best photos you can and keep going! Rome wasn't built in a day and these things take time to build up.
Anything else you'd like to share?
Mainly just have fun! Try to do your own thing and experiment. If a photo isn't successful, don't let it upset you, just move on and take another!
