Inspiring Style: Eva

I love to see people expressing themselves through clothes. How their personality shines through. And I love wardrobe_remix. So one day, as I was browsing photos I stopped and wondered just how great it would be if I could meet some of these people, get to know what inspires them, what they think and cherish. Then, the next second I stopped and realised I can do that! Naturally, the easiest way to do it is through an interview. Simple, right? For the first attempt, I asked one of my absolute favourite wardrobe-remixer Eva (also known as IBelieveInUnicorns) to answer some questions about herself and her style. And you know what? She is indeed amazing.

Daiane: Let's start with some basics about yourself.
Eva: My name is Eva and I'm 17 years old. I live in Bern, the capital of Switzerland. I'm currently still in school with art as a major.

D:How would you define your personal style?
E:My style's quite hard to describe since it changes so often. But in general I'd say it's very storybook-like with a whimsy twist.

D:What inspires you?
E: Practically everything. Of course wardrobe-remix but also movies, art, children's book illustrations, literature, old photographs and nature.

D:What couldn't you live without?
E:My sketchbook, my two lovely cats and having the time to lie down in the grass and watch clouds fly by.

D:Whose style do you admire?
E:The two people whose style I admire the most are the two wardrobe_remix users sunshineupton and thriftcandy. Both have a wonderful hippie sensibility with amazing attention to detail that never ceases to amaze me.

D:What do you do in your spare time?
E: I read quite a lot, at the moment Jane Eyre which is wonderful. In addition to that I draw and sew quite a lot and I love watching movies. Also, I have to admit to be quite a geek, so I read lots of comics and enjoy sci-fi quite a bit.

D:If you could fill your wardrobe with the collection of any fashion designer in the world, who would it be and why?
E:I'd say none of them. I'm really not very interested in high fashion to be honest. I'd rather go to a thrift store and buy as much as I'd like there.

D:What are you loving right now?
E: My rose scarf! It has been glued to my neck for a few weeks now and I don't really see that ending anytime soon:)

D:What are your must-haves for this fall?
E:I have just watched the movie "Dancer in the dark" and I am now determined to find a little brown woollen cardigan like the one Björk is wearing in the movie.

D:Anything nobody else knows about you?
E:Sometimes when I get bored and annoyed with the world, I dream of running away with a gypsy clan and spending my life travelling in a little wooden caravan full of wondrous treasures and magic. It's my favourite daydream.

Isn't she just fabulous? If you want to see more of her outfits, visit her flickr page.

Sweet treats,
Daiane

  1. I love her photos on wardrobe-remix if only for the amazing decor of the room she poses in.

  2. Oh, she is one of my favorite remixers! I especially love her room and the fact that dolls' clothes hang on the walls.
