I don’t think I have ever posted an introduction about myself and fashion. I suppose, I’m the sort of person who just assumes people can read me, and know exactly what I’m on about. And fortunately that is not how the world works. So, I decided to create a little Fashion & I survey in hopes that will give you a better idea as to not only who am I, but my fashion interests as well.
What is your name?
Celina, my online nickname for as long as I can remember has been Flipper, and my gamer tag is exmotion.
Where do you live?
Melbourne, Australia. Born and bred.
What got you into fashion?
Cosplay. Cosplay has taught me so much in terms of what suits my body type, how different types of fabrics work and colours go well together.
How would you describe your fashion style?
Simple, Modern and Elegant. I’m a huge lover of high end fashion, mainly because they always seem to be the brands with the ultra-modern, chic, edgy looks that I adore. Pick up a copy of Vogue, Marie Clarie, Harper’s Bazaar, Cleo and you’ll know what I mean. Yes, I’m quite mainstream, and I love it!
What are your favourite fashion items?
I’m a jeans person, I love skinny jeans as I find them very flattering. I’ve never been huge on dresses or skirts, as I grew up a tomboy (and to some degree still am) but I’m trying to change that, slooowly! Jeans will always be a staple to me. Right now I’m loving white flowy tops, very elegant and delicate and reflects the beautiful Summer weather we are enjoying right now. Large sunglasses are always a must as well as simple jewelery. Nothing too attention grabbing, I prefer for my entire outfit to speak for itself, rather than one or two loud items. And finally heels, I love heels. Maybe it’s because I’m not a very tall person, but I do love the added height and how they truly compliment a person’s figure and legs. The only heels I’m not fond of are those with high platforms, not my style.
What’s your favourite clothing brand?
I don’t really have one, I tend to shop around for things in my style that are affordable. But I adore the styles found in Review, Saba, Satch, Sass & Bide, Pilgram and many more. Admittedly I don’t own many of their items, $400AU for a dress is a bit much for me at this point in time, but that doesn’t mean I can’t shop around for cheaper alternatives
What’s your favourite accessories brand?
Based on my collection, it would appear Louis Vuitton. This year I am trying to move away from Monogram styles, and looking for more classic items. I’m trying my best to branch out and expand my collection to include both brands from all ends. I’d love for my entire collection to be very versatile whilst still being true to my style.
What’s your favourite makeup brand?
I don’t have a favourite brand per say, but favourite brands for each type of makeup (and some are still undecided). For example, I adore MAC pigments and eyeliners, and Lancome stock my favourite mascaras and Giorgio Armani is my current most loved foundation brand.
Do you make your own clothes?
As a cosplayer I can, but I chose not to because it is so time consuming. I love and am in the process for creating some costumes / gowns particularly for photo shoots and print later on. But in terms of day to day wear for myself, I’m a workaholic, and would rather use my time working, and saving money to spend instead.
That’s all I can think of now, if you can come up with any other questions be sure to let me know
