Blogger of the Moment: Fashion Chalet

What can I say about Fashion Chalet? Erika’s outfits are like a lovely stream of concision narrative that tracks her days in sleek lines, high heels, ballet slippers, leather, sequins, and tulle. Each entry is another chapter in her story of style. If you haven’t visited her blog yet, you’ll be hooked on her looks. Her staple accessory? Her long locks. As soon as you think you’ve categorized her style, she’ll switch from a sexy sheath dress to laid-back jeans. You never know what you’re going to get when you visit her blog, and that’s why you keep coming back for more.

Read on to see some of her ModCloth picks and get the inside scoop in our interview with her. And don’t forget to check out her namesake dress!

What is your fashion/styling rule? Any tips for getting your look?
I pick one part of the body to showcase – either legs -(bottom half) or arms -(upper half) unless it’s Summertime, I think it is always best to leave room for some Mystery. Black, grey and navy look good on just about everybody- it’s always key to have some basics in these colors on hand.

Favorite style icon?
I like to call my favorite style Modern Audrey, meaning classic, decadent, veering always on a more feminine side,yet still encompassing some edge and modernity to it all.

Favorite movie?
Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Up.

Is there a specific era that influences your style?

There are so many, but probably the ’50s and ’80s, mostly.

What style blogs do you follow?
I am enamored with so many Photo blogs out there (Little Plastic Horses, Knight Cat, tumblr, Stardust and Sequins). I also hold Street Style blogs close to my heart (Jak & Jil, StockholmStreetStyle, Garance Dore, Streethearts).

What inspired you to start your own blog?
A deep love for wanting to share what I was wearing with the world. I’ve always taken outfit photos of my looks – ever since high school –  but I never really had a proper place to share them on. One day I started to see blogs popping up and decided to give it a whirl!

When you’re not blogging, what are your other hobbies?
Reading, dancing, shopping, cooking, spending time with my family, traveling…

Any tips for girls wanting to start their own fashion blogs?

Blog often, and about anything and everything you love. The rest will follow… and above all, always make sure to identify what you are wearing. 😉 Inquiring minds want to know!

And last but not least – if you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead, who would it be?
Julian Casablancas from The Strokes. I want to know how he comes up with his intense lyrics and sweltering beats.

Plus, don’t for get to check out the Fashion Chalet Dress!

About Turi

When Turi isn’t blogging, you can find her nose behind a book. But reading isn’t her only pastime. She loves running (cue jogging stroller), taste-testing pizza and burgers, and working on the next great American novel. Her latest homage to all things literary? Her son is named after writer Dashiell Hammett. How apropos.

    Thanks Turi. =) Love the way it came out!!

    Julie – so sweet. I put as much passion and effort behind my music picks as I do with my outfits. So, that really made my day (and night!)
