Blogger Spotlight: Catherine from Silhouette Girl

For anyone who saw my I Heart Blogs post, you already know that I'm a big fan of this blog and I'm so glad that I was able to interview her. Catherine of Silhouette Girl is a teen with an awesome, laidback style. Read on to find out more about her and don't forget to check out her blog!

When did you start blogging and why?
I started on Chictopia in November 2008 out of boredom, and by February I started Silhouette Girl because I noticed that most Chictopia members also

When did you get interested in style/fashion and what sparked that interest?
I've always had some sort of interest in what I wear... for most of elementary school, I was very obsessed with wearing the color purple! I think that my interest was sparked by my aunt and grandmom - both would make frequent trips to JoAnn's, and I would tag along sometimes. I really enjoyed looking through the pattern books.

Describe your style in 3 words.
Simple, understated, casual

What is your favorite decade and why?
There's aspects of different decades that I like... the femininity of the 1950's, the freedom of the 1960's, etc.

What's on your wish list for fall?
I'm still not sure! There's a variety of shoes I want, but they always sell out in my size before I can contemplate buying them. I'm actually not a fan of shopping, so I probably won't even get around to purchasing too much.

Any plans to attend NY Fashion Week and/or the Chictopia10 conference this year?
Sadly, no! I was lucky last winter to attend NYFW as one of the winners of the Chictopia10 contest... and I was lucky to have a four-day weekend when it occurred. I'm too busy!
EDIT: Catherine is going to be a speaker at Chictopia10!!

What are your interests/hobbies (besides fashion)?
I really enjoy making (vegan) food, writing, drawing, painting, crafting, etc. I'm a creative person. And I have to admit - I'm quite a fan of the Spanish language!

If you could only shop at one store for the rest of your life, what store would you choose and why?
I usually find myself unimpressed by individual stores... but I'd have to say H&M. I appreciate smaller shops/boutiques, but if I could only shop at one store, it would have to have everything!

Name your favorite (or favorites):
book: Harry Potter series... I'm a nerd! and I quite liked Galapagos by Kurt Vonnegut
movie: Thirteen, 500 Days of Summer
tv show: Dexter!
color: it's still purple, I just don't wear it as much!


She acts like summer and walks like rain

Title comes from "Drops of Jupiter" by Train. I'm so sorry for my lack of blogging! Not having a camera kinda prevented that. Well, my mom got me a camera so I can once again take outfit pictures! Thank you so much for the camera suggestions. Unfortunately my mom bought the camera for me so I didn't have a say in what kind it is, but I'm fairly happy with it. It's a Nikon Coolpix L22.

Now on to some very exciting news. As you could see, I redid the purple streak in my hair and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, especially because I did it myself and I'm not exactly experienced at hair dying. What do you think?

PS - I'm going away this weekend so no posts til Sunday or Monday. Sorry!!
