Fashion, Farfetch and Me.

Where do I start?? I don't know if fashion has always been in me; that is something I would need to ask my mum. But what I can say is that fashion is now a part of me. I don't mean always following the latest trends (that to me is not fashion). Fashion is about being creative, unique and always adding a bit of personality.  
One of my favourite online fashion houses Farfetch recently emailed me and asked me to be a part of their amazing competition (how could I say no). Farfetch are amazing! They deliver everything from fashion, to incredible shoes to make up and if you have not visited their page before then please make that a priority on your list of things to do today. You will not regret it. I didn't know where to start with this piece but after reading 'The Fashion Blogger's content pack', mapping it out and having a little think, I knew exactly how I wanted this piece to go. Farfetch interviewed several bloggers and boutiques (it holds up to 400 fashion boutiques offering you an inspiring shopping experience). So what I decided to do is use the questions asked and create my own interview with Farfetch about me, my style and why I love using Farfetch. 

So...When Farfetch met Lilcrissy ;)

How would you describe your style?
My style is a mixture of styles. It definitely depends on how I am feeling that day, what I look like that morning (sometimes a bad hair day changes everything) or the weather.  One thing I will say about my style is that you will always (99% of the time) find an item of black clothing on me. I love wearing black. 

What is your niche?
This was a little blurry at the start of creating my blog but after reading/researching and looking at my Instagram, my niche kind of came to me. Being only 5ft, sometimes styles do not always suit me, and when you see them on the catwalk, you want them to look like that on you so I have to find what is out there and make it work for a lil shorty like me. It is what inspired my blog name and also my moto; You do not need to be tall to wear amazing clothes. I am also a gym gal so I wanted to work on health and fitness and share my experience at the gym but also what I put together to go to the gym. 

What do you believe to be your first true fashion purchase? What made you buy it?  
This answer is easy! It was my Balenciaga bag. It was the 'it' bag when I was growing up. My style icons at the time were (and still are some of my favs) Nicole Ritchie and Sienna Miller. When I saw the bag on them, my love for it was immediate. I bought a second hand blue one until I was finally able to purchase my very own black one. I have so much love for it. 

Who is your favourite designer?
Obviously Chanel. But I love Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Celine and Burberry. Luckily are few of these are on the Farfetch app. 

What types of photos would you say receive the biggest engagement on Instagram?
You will see that most of my pictures are done in front of a mirror. It will be what I am wearing that day or an outfit I have just put together. I think that they are the ones that get the most likes because they are outfits that anybody can put together. They are not complicated. They are pieces you can wear again and again. There are items on there that I have worn more than once (but change the way I wear it) and that you can dress up and dress down which is what I love in an outfit.

Which influencers did you use to follow before becoming a blogger? 
I follow a few people. Some I still follow today and if I ever need inspiration I would go to them (and Pinterest); Sincerely Jules, Lydia Elise Millen, Lovely Pepa and Trendy Taste

What's on your Farfetch fashion wish list at the moment?
I have a few things on my Farfetch wish list BUT one in particular. That is Givenchy Medium Antigona bag. I LOVE this bag!!!! I have the mini Antigona but it is not always practical for everyday wear. That's what I love about the Medium size one.
