Fashion Blogger Files: Meet Lena (Quality Rivets) from Canada!

Sooo tell u a little about yourself:

Who influences your personal style and how would you describe your style:

My style is influenced by my surroundings. The bloggers I follow, the magazines I read, the movies I watch, the places I visit, etc. Then I just interpret the styling I see to make it my own.


Why did you start fashion blogging:

I had stumbled across the website Chictopia, which is a site where people post their outfits. After a few months of just being a follower, I decided to post a picture of mine for the hell of it. I got good feedback which was very motivating. Thy great comments I kept receiving made me keep posting. I then decided to give blogging a try and that was successful. It’s a great way to vent, give people ideas, and meet some interesting individuals. I’m addicted! lol

Tell us a bit about your modeling career and your ultimate aspirations:

Modelling career?? No modelling for me. This is just something I do for fun :)

Who is your favorite fashion blogger and why?

I actually have a few bloggers that I read, not one in particular that I favour. Fashion Toast, Fashion Squad, Where Did U Get That, The Haute Pursuit, and many more. I love their style, the way they put pieces together to create a masterpiece outfit, some great DIY ideas, etc.

What are your plans for 2011?

I actually just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on Dec. 30th, so my plans at the moment are to be the best mommy I can be :)

Who is the designer to watch in 2011? I saw a few pieces from designer Jonathan Simkhai’s and I find them very versatile with a great mix of masculinity/femininity. I think we might hear his name mentioned quite a bit in 2011.

What are your favorite brands? Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, Isabel Marant, and too many others to name.

Do you have a favorite runway or fashion model? I love Kate Moss. Her

look, her style, it’s just perfection.
