My name is Heliely Bermudez, I am 20 years old and I live in Temecula, California.
I just started blogging just this year, so I’m very much new to everything.
I started up on posting my looks on lookbook and decided to post up the rest of the pictures from my random photoshoots unto my blog and I guess everything just went from there.
Fashion is a vent system for me, it’s a way for me to express myself and put myself out there when I can’t verbally and physically. I’m a very shy person at first but I have a lot to offer and a lot to show. Fashion is also a form of art to me, a creative way to give off a sense of individuality and uniqueness.
Nowadays fashion bloggers have become such a success (or at least those who have gone really far) in the fashion world through the connections that they have received from their blogging and also have become a successful way to advertise. If you’re a famous fashion blogger, tons of followers will see what you wear and will definitely get hooked on that as well. If it wasn’t for a few of my favorite fashion bloggers (for instance Aimee Song) I definitely would not have been pushed as much as I did to start my own blog haha.
I’m not so sure about replacing fashion magazines, but I do believe that they’ll play a role in successful advertisement/promotion. Most likely what they’re doing now, which is bloggers working with a few magazines.
My favorite item in my wardrobe at the moment would be my ankle wedged boots and my Mustard over-sized blazer, can’t seem to get enough of them!
Indispensible items..hmm my loose button-up polo, my over-sized knits, and my high-waisted distressed shorts, I can always, always find a way an outfit together with those in any kind of weather.
From everywhere really; people, movies, magazines, art, patterns, and etc. There’s an endless list of places to get ideas and inspiration from.
My greatest inspiration..hmm I have to say at the moment I love Korean Fashion, ahaha oh my love for Koreans!
DW__How important is it for you to look your best and why?
Honestly, there’s moments where I get completely lazy and just wear a pair of jeans a shirt with slippers, but other than that looking my best is important to me. I’m the kind of girl who will dress up even if I’m just going to school. From where I live not so many people dress up, so when I do put myself out there lots of people would probably think in their heads why I’m so dressed up like I am. But, to me going out and looking nice is a way to show that your confident in yourself, that you value yourself, and to be honest first impressions mean a lot when it comes to meeting new people or even passing by people. Everyday has an opportunity of its own. You’ll never know who you’ll meet and who you’ll affect.
DW__What are the worst and best aspects of blogging?
I’m not sure I’ve met the worst part of blogging yet, but the best parts is hearing that what you put out there inspires other people and how awesome is that? haha.
DW__Who usually takes your pictures ?
My sister usually takes my pictures and I edit. She’s the main reason why I’m still where I’m at and supports me all the way. She’s, to put it simply, the best next to awesome.
DW__If you had to choose only one pair of shoes what would it be ?
Hmm..one pair of shoes to live with forever? I’d say flats or a pair of boots. Now if it’s one pair of shoes I’d choose too ever get at the moment it’d be Jeffrey Campbell 'Hough' Sandal or Nicholas Kirkwood for Erdem Floral Print Pump! Ahhh if only…
