When I was at New York Fashion Week, I had the opportunity to grab coffee with our latest Blogger of the Moment, Liz of Late Afternoon, a true California-girl fashionista . I already knew from her blog that she had impeccable style, dreaming up clothing combos that I’d never think of but that looked amazing. Think piling on two watches and a handful of bracelets or pairing two different leopard prints — outfits that sound crazy when described but end up looking effortless when worn. She truly has a unique vision when it comes to personal style.But fashion isn’t the only thing Liz lives for. She got her undergrad degree in psychology and thought she might pursue a career in research, but her natural eye for all things fashion has led her down a different path.

What is your fashion/styling rule? Any tips for getting your look?
Never underestimate the power of accessories, and never leave the house feeling anything less than confident. To get my look, mix edgy pieces with feminine touches and always layer on the rings.
Favorite style icon?
I am inspired by so many people! But basically any woman who is intelligent, ambitious, stylish and kind.
Favorite movie or book?
Favorite books: The Bell Jar and Gone with the Wind. Favorite Movie: Gone with the Wind and The Virgin Suicides
When you’re not blogging, what are your other hobbies?
I love to cook, explore the city, check out art openings, thrift/vintage shop, and find new places to eat.
Any tips for girls wanting to start their own fashion blogs?
Find your voice and don’t get discouraged.
What is your ultimate dream for the future?
To have a job that is both creative and secure, start a family with my other half (my boyfriend), live in an old Victorian house where I can have all the pets I want, and to have the freedom to travel around the world.
If someone said you could travel anywhere in the universe, where would that be?
Is a parallel universe a choice? According to string theory, there’s a possibility those exist.
And last but not least – if you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead, who would it be and what would you eat?
I would eat with Albert Camus and we would feast on foie gras, escargot and duck confit.
