Blogger of the Moment: Flashes of Style

Bonnie’s blog, Flashes of Style, is one that I wish I’d discovered a long time ago. Each of her outfits look effortless, but are really perfectly paired collections of thrifted and new pieces that are Alexa Chung-worthy. Bonnie is a fashion student who dreams of being a stylist, and she’s definitely on the right path. On top of her to-die-for eye for outfits, she’s also a super sweet gal. She’s the kind of person you’d want to take vintage shopping with you–helping you find gems among the racks. Her namesake dress is one you’ll want to check it out, along with all her ModCloth picks!

Who are your style icons? What else inspires your sense of style?
To me, quirkiness takes the cake. My style icons are unique women from all decades, like Alexa Chung, Mary-Kate Olsen, Mia Farrow, and Pattie Boyd. Day-to-day, however, I am inspired by the little town I currently live in and all of its natural beauty.

Where do you call home? Do you feel your locale influences your style?
I really have lived all over the place, from Missouri to London, but what I call home is the good ol’ state of Texas. I lived there for almost 20 years of my life, and living in the suburbs of Dallas is what ultimately got me into fashion. There really is a unique fashion scene there that most people in the country do not know about.

What blogs do you follow?

I draw most of my inspiration from personal style blogs such as Greer, Autilla’s Blog, and The World Looks Red.  I always leave feeling enchanted.

If you could live in the pages of a book or on the set of a movie, which book or movie would it be? Why?
I am a sucker for films overflowing with beauty, so basically anything directed by Sofia Coppola. The Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette never fail to leave me in awe.

You’re a fashion student, right? What would be your dream job when you’re done with school?
Yes, I am a fashion student about to graduate (eep!). It is typical but so true; my dream job would be as a stylist. That is why I started my fashion blog, because I am obsessed with creating a concrete concept through something as basic as pieces of clothing put together. It is such a great form of expression.

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world
who would it be? What would you eat?
J.K Rowling! We would thoroughly discuss Harry Potter over grilled cheeses with tomato soup.

What would the perfect romantic date be for you?

An afternoon picnic on a day with no obligations or deadlines. It would be the perfect temperature for dresses and laying under the sun.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

Behind all my photos, I have quite the eccentric personality. My roommates/people that are close to me always say, “If only people knew how weird you actually are.” You can typically find me at home dancing/laughing/talking in a funny voice.

Do you have any secret dreams for the future?
I want to conquer my big city dreams and, after I make my mark in the fashion industry, build my own cottage in the mountains in some place like Colorado or Montana. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed, of course!

Don’t forget to check out all of Bonnie’s favorite ModCloth picks!

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.
