In the end, Mirror Fanatic is a blog that focuses on all the fabulosity in the mirror.
Name: Sky Conner
Hi Sky, can you start by telling us a bit about yourself?
Okay…a sample of me would be I’m from St. Louis, I live in Chicago for college, and I’m going through a handbag obsession phase. I aspire to be a Fashion Director for a magazine or brand. God is 1st priority with everything I do…I think that touches a little of everything.
Can you tell us about your blog and what inspired you to start it?
I started in purely being intrigued with it. Once I got my feet wet and found my niche I realized it was a platform of self-expression. It’s a way of me showcasing what and who I am through fashion. I am able to connect with people on such a pure and genuine level and I just find that to be absolutely beautiful.
How would you describe your own personal style?
I think I need a new saying but I always say “classic with a twist” I always will do something, “standard” with a hint of, “ah ha!” This is natural for me but I love that it provokes thought and discussion but also allows others to find their own style.
What are the must have items on your FW’14 list?
My must haves this winter are more tennis shoes, particularly a pair of chanel trainers. I also have tons of outerwear on my list as anyone in Chicago knows you will be in need of outerwear pieces. Last on my list is a timeless bag! My eyes have been dead set on the Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bag so hopefully I can cross that off soon.
What do you think will be the big hits fashion wise for next season?
I believe we will see tons of white. I think we will see a lot of short dresses like back in the 60’s.we will see Crop tops and Midi’s, sandals and boyfriend jeans, as well as more ladies wearing skirts with tennis shoes.
Where do you tend to buy your clothes and why?
I buy in segments. For fast fashion I buy H&M, Zara, TopShop, Asos, and even Forever21 from time to time. On a designer level I shop Bluefly, Saks Fifth Avenue, Burberry, and Outnet.com. I do this to give a good mixture on my blog. I focus more on fast fashion because it’s more accessible to my viewers. I want everyone to feel like they can look and feel amazing without spending thousands of dollars.
