Blogger Spotlight: Sarah from Bad Penny

Well, this is the "special surprise" I promised you - an interview! Sarah from Bad Penny is an amazing girl with great style and a fun personality. I recently had the opportunity to interview her. Read on to find out more about her and definitely check out her blog and online shop.

When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging last summer but I was very green and didn't update much. I started up Bad Penny on blogspot in November 2009 and it has been much more successful. I update almost every day now. (:

When did you get interested in style/fashion and what sparked that interest?
It's hard to pinpoint...I've always swam against the current when it came to fashion. Whether I was wearing striped extensions in my hair or painting my nails black or wearing dresses from the 60s. I feel like I came into my true colors fashion wise around 2008 when I was a sophomore. I idolize people like Janis Joplin, Coco Chanel, Joan Jett, all so different but truly iconic when it comes to fashion. I'm a very independant person and I find it impossible to wear what everyone else does. It's dreadfully boring.

Describe your style in 3 words.
Revolving, Thrifty, Edgy

What are your interests/hobbies (besides fashion)?
I front an indie rock band called Milos Fare (check them out on myspace) and I sing for my school's jazz choir. Music is a huge part of my life and I take it very seriously.

What do you consider key pieces for summer?
Rompers and colorful vintage sundresses are a must! A great pair of vintage shades, strappy sandals, high-waisted shorts, and vests should be abundant in any summer wardrobe.

If you could only take 10 pieces of clothing (including shoes and accesories) with you to a desert island, what would you take?
This is a hard one...
-Big Sunglasses (For obvious reasons)
-Comfortable Sandals
-Floral V-neck tank
-High-waisted shorts
-Floppy Sun hat
-Polka dot Sundress
-Cotton Romper
-A thrifty watch (So as to not lose track of time)
-Comfy Keds
-Waist Belt

If you could switch closets with one person, who would it be and why?
Hmm! I'm going to have to say Jenny Lewis. Not only does she front a band like I do, but she takes an empty suitcase with her when she tours and fills it up from thrift stores across the country as she goes. How cool!

Name your favorite (or favorites):
book: Harry Potters are fantastic. Also love Running with Scissors.
movie: Oh gosh, Sabrina (circa 1958) with Audrey Hepburn is AMAZING. But I really loved The Runaways and I adore Sleepy Hollow with Johnny Depp.
TV show: Glee!!! I'm a complete Gleek.
color: I'm a huge fan of teal and maroon!
