Meet SF Shop Girl

Thursday, January 10, 2013

While I'm out of town on business (coming home tomorrow, yee!!), I thought it would be nice to introduce you a close friend and fellow fashion lover - SF Shop Girl, Alexandra B. Below is the our full interview. Make sure you check out SF Shop Girl. Hope your week has been going great!

So you agree... Alex has some serious style!

Small blurb about you and SF Shop Girl
I am a San Francisco dweller, fashion + design enthusiast, lover of color and all things creative.  
SF Shop Girl's Mission:
Fashion is all about authenticity, captivation, creation and resiliency.  My hope is to entice and enlighten readers about the industry from a personal and professionally curious lens.

Inspiration for starting SF Shop Girl
I was inspired to start SF Shop Girl because I have been a fashion enthusiast nearly my entire life.  I have a thirst for knowledge and I love connecting with other people in the industry and featuring brands and fellow bloggers whom I admire.  Plus, I have a career, so this is a creative, exciting diversion.

3 things people should know about you
1. I was a competitive gymnast
2. I met Ryan Gosling (He called me up on stage during his concert)-Highlight of my life ;0
3. I have a Master's degree in Sport Management-clearly, I've been putting my degree to great use.;)

Favorite 2012 memory
My favorite 2012 memory was ringing in the New Year in London with my wonderful boyfriend!

What are you looking forward to most in 2013?
In 2013, I'm looking forward to traveling...and turning 30!  Yikes.

What do you love about fashion?
Fashion is a form of self-expression.  Even if someone's aesthetic doesn't match mine, I can appreciate individuality and non-conformity.  
It is inspiring, ever evolving and such a flourishing industry.  I love pretty much everything about it.

Current item you’re lusting for
I'm currently lusting over Charlotte Olympia cat flats.  I know they've been out for ages, but I haven't been able to bring myself to purchase them.

1) Louis Vuitton Wallet
2) Stella McCartney Round Sunglasses
3) Chanel Rouge Lipstick

3 items every fashionista should have

What’s your motto?
Be different, impractical and daring.  That way you are never a prisoner to trends.
