Today I'm featuring another fashion blogger in my 'She's Got Style!' series, allow me to introduce you to the creative mind behind Versicolor Closet, Edwina Bazile.
I'm 26 years old, originally from Haïti but currently residing in Queens, NY. Although I graduated college with a degree in Finance & Investments, I have an undying love for everything fashion. I decided to become a fashion blogger about six months ago since I figured it was something I can do on the side to not only express myself but also expand my knowledge in the fashion industry. Because I am a lover of all colorful things, I made it my mission to inspire women (and men) around the world, through blogging, to add a bit of color to their wardrobe and their lives as a whole. More about me and my style can be found on my blog site: www.versicolorcloset.com
How do you define your personal style?
I am not sure if there is one specific style category I fit into because I love to experiment a lot when it comes to my style. One day I may wear something that makes me appear soft and feminine and the next I may come off as edgy. It's all about what's comfortable and what works for my body, my style & my budget.
Who are your style icons.... Who do you draw your inspiration from?
I draw inspiration a lot from nature and my surroundings. We don't live in a black-and-white world so because color is all around me, I'm easily captivated by anything colorful. I also love to people-watch and by doing that, I get to see other people's way of dressing and the different ways one clothing item can be worn. Celebrities that I would consider style icons include June Ambrose, Solange Knowles, Jennifer Lopez, and Rita Ora.
When did you realize you had a passion for fashion?
Wow! That's kind of a tough question. I've always loved fashion for as long as I can remember. I have pictures of when I was a two-year old, twirling in a dress and loving my white cowboy boots. So it is safe to say I was born with a love for fashion. It's evident that at some point in my life, I may not have been able to express my fashion sense the way that I would've wanted, due to being too young to dress myself or perhaps financial constraints, but the passion has always been there and it's not going anywhere.
What is the one trend you wish would die/be over?
Lol, well if I don't like a trend, I would just not wear it but it may be someone else's favorite so I wouldn't wish for it to 'die'. But to answer the question more directly, I would just say that I strongly dislike the whole boxers showing under super saggy jeans on men (and some women too) and I cannot stand to see girls out and about in Uggs and pajama bottoms.
What is your favorite accessory?
I'm a big fan of all accessories but if there's one thing I cannot leave my house without it's my earrings. But I also have a weakness for statement necklaces. My current favorite is a multicolored beaded one from Aldo which can be seen in this post on my blog.
What is your favorite make-up product?
I fell in love with Maybelline Volume Express mascara the first time I used it. It works wanders on my barely-there lashes so it tops the list of my current favorites.
What are your hopes for your blog?
I am hoping for a successful blog as are most, if not all bloggers. But for Versicolor Closet, that success will be defined by the fact that readers will continue to visit because they know they will find an inspirational quote that will motivate them, or know that they will find an outfit idea that will not cost them a fortune. I also hope that my followers and subscribers will see through my work, that if you set goals and work hard, you can achieve them; That adding a little color to your wardrobe can brighten up your day. If I inspire one person to do better in any aspect of life or dress better - which in turn increases their confidence, then I'll know Versicolor Closet doesn't only mean changeable in color but also changeable for the better.
