Fashion, Costume Design, Lifestyle, & Inspiration (With a touch of my love for London)
What’s your day job?
Student at CSULB & Costume Design Intern
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
I love utilizing my blog as a platform to express and share my passions, and to hopefully inspire others. “La Belle Mélange” stands for “beautiful mixture,” and that title truly expresses what my blog is about, a mixture of everything I love in life.
Traveling, photography, fashion design, watching TONS of TV, going to concerts/tv tapings, and listening to Lady Antebellum!
How would you describe your personal style?
Classic with a touch of romanticism. I’m extremely inspired by Audrey Hepburn, so when I get dressed I often think, “What Would Audrey Wear?”
What is your favourite thing about Los Angeles?
I was born and raised a little outside of L.A. I love living so close to such an amazing city with endless possibilities. I have always loved “Hollywood” and Costume Design for tv/film, and that definitely stemmed from living so close to L.A.
How did you start blogging?
My very first blog came about due to my study abroad trip to London during the summer of 2010. I updated friends and family about my adventures in the UK, and I fell in love with blogging! When I returned home, I decided to start “La Belle Mélange,” to express the many passions and interests in my life.
Favourite designer and why?
My favorite fashion designer is Kate Spade for her adorable and classic accessories, handbags, and clothing. I love living colorfully, as she always encourages her customers to do. Since I aspire to be a costume designer, my favorite CD of all time is Edith Head. She dressed everyone from Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Doris Day, and many more iconic actresses!
Favourite store/bar/restaurant/activity in Los Angeles?
I LOVE Anthropologie! My all-time favorite activity in L.A. is going to TV tapings such as Ellen, The Big Bang Theory, and The Voice!
What is your most prized material possession?
My Kate Spade jewelry!
What beauty item could you not live without?
Blush & MAC eyeliner!
