Christine Interview


DW__What's your name? How old are you and where do you live?

Christine. I live in the Netherlands.

DW__When did you started blogging and How did you come up with the idea?

I started blogging quite a few years ago, but it took me a while to figure out what kind of blog suited me best. I started Fash n Chips 2 years ago and although at first I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with it, it's slowly turned into a personal style blog - I guess that's the best way to describe it.

DW__Could you introduce your blog?

My blog Fash n Chips is about my personal style and taste. On there you can find my outfit photos, things that inspire me, films I love, shopping ideas and little travel reports. It's mostly about images though.

DW__What is fashion for you?

In some ways an art. And also a way to express yourself.

DW__According to you, what is the most significant period for women's fashion?

I don't know. Maybe the 70's, because I feel that ever since then anything seemed possible in women's fashion. At the same time I'm not sure that this is a good thing, because nowadays a lot of women look like they could actually use a little more structure.

DW__What do you think about the influence of fashion bloggers in the fashion world?

I'm not sure they actually have a lot of influence, but it's obvious that they're very popular right now. I think it's fun in a way, but it also makes the fashion world seem a bit more shallow.

DW__Do you believe that one day they'll replace the fashion magazine or do you think it's just ephemeral ?

I can't see them replace the magazines entirely. I for one still love flipping through a good magazine even though I may have seen most of the stuff in there already on internet.

DW__3 Indispensable items?

A pair of classic black pumps, a big coat and a black leather bag.

DW__Where do you get your ideas from?

I get inspiration from anything. Films, nature, dreams.. anything.

DW__What is your greatest inspiration?

I don't know. See previous question.

DW__How important is it for you to look your best and why?

It's not very important to me at all. In fact, I'm a bit of a sweatpants kind of girl. But I can feel quite good about myself with the right amount of makeup, a good hair do and a pair of heels - and I guess that's what it's all about; feeling good about yourself.

DW__Who would qualify to be an icon?

Someone with a unique or instantly recognizable style and who doesn't necessarily follow every trend.

DW__Your ideal female or male would have what style? what would he/she be wearing?

They would be wearing something that would reflect, express or enhance their personality and that they'd feel comfortable and confident in.

DW__If you had to choose one bag what would it be?

Right now I'm coveting the Givenchy 'Antigona' bag.

DW__What camera are you using?

Canon EOS 600D. And sometimes the Canon 5D Mark II.

DW__Websites? blogs? other links?

DW__One last/final word?

Live, laugh, love.
