Styleclone: When did you first become interested in fashion and why?
Becca: “It must have been about 4 years ago. I came across Vogue and loved fashion from then on. I got an Elle subscription and have been a loyal subscriber ever since!”
Styleclone: Why did you decide to start a fashion blog?
Becca: “My uncle made a blog to show us what he was up to (because he lives abroad). So I thought a blog is just a website really, so I made an account myself and wrote about fashion, and little did i know, blogs were the next big thing!”
Styleclone: How do you keep your blog fresh and exciting?
Becca: “Write about the latest trends, read the latest fashion magazines. Put your own personal imput on everything and experiment. YOU are your OWN boss with blogging, there is no-one to tell you what to do!”
Styleclone: What is it about your blog that keeps people coming back?
Becca: “I have no idea really. Maybe they are inspired by me? I’m not sure. I just post my views on fashion, I suppose if they like my views they’ll come back and read my blog again!”
Styleclone: Which blogs do you visit regularly and take inspiration from?
Becca: “I don’t so much take inspiration from other blogs, I write about my own views, something unique, not what all the blogs are writing about. But I do enjoy reading some, like FashionChampagne.com and ItsFashionDamnit.
Styleclone: What is your favourite thing about Fashion Train?
Becca: “I suppose it’s the fact that I can post about what ever I like to do with fashion, and the name of my blog! It used to be called ‘fashionistageekly’ but I changed it one day. I had no idea how I thought of the name, but I’m glad I did!”
Styleclone: Will Fashion Train always be a hobby for you or do you intend to work on it full time?
Becca: “I started my blog for fun, as none of my friends are interested in fashion the way I am, I never dreamed of it as becoming a bit like a profession. But it’s amazing to be doing something you love so much and earning some money through advertising from it!”
Styleclone: How would you describe your style?
Becca: “My style I’d say, is Indie and Girly and a mixture of the nautical/tailored look too. It’s a real good mixture of styles and I love everything stripey and floral!”
Styleclone: What is your favourite outfit you’ve featured on the site?
Becca: “Probably my prom dress, or the most recent Desire Clothing dress in the style of Taylor Swift, I loved that outfit!”
Styleclone: Who is your style inspiration?
Becca: “I love looking at people on the street similar to my age what they are wearing, but I also love what Taylor Momsen and Alexa Chung wear.
Styleclone: What is your favourite store?
Becca: “I love my online shopping more now, so my online shops are Desire Clothing and Chiara Fashion. Instore I like New Look, H&M, Miss Selfridge and Topshop!
Styleclone: What current fashion trend are you loving at the moment? And what are you hating?
Becca: “I love the bodycon skirt trend, I have about 5 of the skirts right now! And I’m not keen on the tailored shorts look.”
Styleclone: Do you think everyone can be fashionable?
Becca: “I think they can be fashionable as long as they in-corporate the latest trends with their own personal style.”
