Fashionista from San Diego :: Jade Elise

Jade Elise is one of our contest winners at Mode Republic! Let’s learn more about her.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I'm from San Diego where I still live today. I'm a student and as of now, I'm undeclared...still trying to decide what I want to do!


How did you become interested in fashion?
I found some fashion blogs, in particular and and from there the obsession began.


What inspired you to start your own blog?
Other fashion blogs in general. I enjoyed reading them so much that I decided to make my own. I made quite a few starting back a few years ago but wasn't satisfied with them. I kept deleting them and finally settled with for some reason.


What are your dreams and aspirations?
I have many hobbies that I would love to master. Probably too many, but I would be happy if I could master my knitting, sewing, and piano skills.


How would you describe your style? What’s your favorite look at this moment?
This is the question I dread because I always give such a common answer! It truly does change often. Sometimes I want to be more preppy whereas other days I want to be more edgy.


Where do you get your fashion inspirations?
I read a lot of blogs but I'm trying to find other ways to find inspiration. Photography and fashion magazines are good inspiration, but I try and just wear things that I like or that I'm comfortable in.


Where do you shop? What are your favorite brands?
I love to shop from ASOS and Forever 21. I like Forever 21 for the obvious reason that it is affordable but what I love about ASOS is that I can find a wide variety of different styles and brands. I feel that I can also find pieces on there that aren't just 'trends'. I love to look at J. Crew also.
