I caught up with Cecylia to chat about her style and all things blogging! Check out the interview and her gorgeous photo below:
Please tell us about yourself and when you started blogging >
Ever since I was a toddler, I loved fashion. I used to parade around the house in my mom’s clothes and she fuelled my passion by making me exquisite pieces. Growing up, I excelled in academics so everyone expected me to become a doctor of some sort, however my secret love affair with fashion never dimmed. So after working a few years as a veterinarian, I desperately wanted to be involved in fashion in some way, and after reading some fashion blogs, I decided to create my own 3 years ago. People always commented on the uniqueness of my name so naturally, Cecylia.com was born.
How would you describe your style >
One part elegant, one part quirky. I’m not dictated or bound by trends, and I love styling pieces in unexpected ways.
Who inspires your wardrobe and why >
Stylists, models (off-duty looks) and fashionistas from Street style blogs. These are ‘real-women’ who have interpreted trends and adopted them in their own repertoire, I find these ladies very refreshing and inspiring. Hence I gain confidence to put my own spin on things as well.
Three must-have items for Spring/Summer >
Who are your favorite Aussie and International designers >
I adore Karla Spetic, recently I discovered some hot young talent like Kathryn Beker, Livia Arena and Sonya Kraan, and internationally my heart flutters for Jil Sander and Sophia Kokosalaki.
