Why did I start The Basic Skinny?
I started The Basic Skinny essentially as a creative outlet, an escape from my day to day activities. This blog will express and attempt inspire its readers by delivering inspirational content regarding to fashion, illustration and shopping.
I will also showcase the life and style transformation from my daily denim & tee’s wear to skirts, blazer and ruffles.
I hope everyone enjoys reading Anguillian Paperdoll just as much as I enjoy writing it! A place to escape to full of whimsy and prettiness.
What do I do besides blogging?
I am a full time intimates designer. I am constantly working on creating new, fun and inexpensive ideas for the customer. I commute to new york from Philly 4-5 times a week just to do what I love. I love illustrating, doing lots of D.I.Y projects & shopping (a habit that needs to slow down). I am a very creative individual, sometimes to creative.
What did I study at the university?
I studied Fashion Design at Moore College of Art and Design. I took plenty of other classes to see what I wanted to minor in however, once I decided it was going to be Graphic Design it was too late. I learned so many other things that help me in my daily duties at work from taking so many different classes such as; Printmaking, Oil Painting, Book Box & Portfolio, Advanced Photoshop, Web Design and the list goes on.
Where do I get most of my clothes?
My wardrobe is predominantly Urban Outfitters, H&M & Forever 21. I also have a habit of window shopping online. I love Nasty Gal, Need Supply Co, Sole Struck & Pixie Market. I try not to spend too much on clothing because I love Bags and shoes. Every year for my “birthday” I purchase a bag for myself. My favorite bag designer right now Marc Jacobs, I love his bags. My accessories are from random places or D.I.Y’s
