I recently had the delight of interviewing fifteen year old Dana from Seattle who runs the lovely blog, Daily Dose of Dana. Dana’s blog consists of her many gorgeous outfit photos, showing off her classic but cute sense of style. Here is my interview:
1. What inspired you to start your Tumblr and start posting your outfits on Lookbook?
It all started when I was in 8th grade and I wanted something fun to do that was separate from school and all my own. I loved reading other fashion blogs, so starting my own sounded like a really cool thing to do.
2. Are you surprised by the popularity and success of your blog and outfits on Lookbook?
Of course I am! It’s incredibly encouraging to me to see that so many people like what I’m doing, and I never could have expected it. I have put a lot of hard work into my blog and Lookbook, so it’s exciting to see that it has paid off.
3. Who or what inspires your outfits?
I’m inspired by many different things including other bloggers, Lookbook, and my friends.
4. How would you describe your style?
This is a question that I always struggle with. I guess I just trust my instincts when putting together an outfit. Sometimes it turns out more girly and sometimes more edgy. I think that mixing different styles together can create a really unique and dimensional look.
5. What is on your wishlist at the moment?
Currently I have been wanting a new pair of cool, interesting shoes, but I haven’t found the right pair yet. Also, for spring I want to get a pretty lace dress to layer and a pair of unique sandals.
6. What is your number one style tip?
My number one piece of advice, which applies to fashion as well as all other areas of life is to do what you want to do, and don’t pay attention to what the people around you think of it!
