To finish up this two-part introductory post from last week, I would like you all to meet Lilly! A beautiful 21 year old fashion blogger from the west coast, who definitely has the most gorgeous hair (can we trade for about a week or so?) and shares a mutual love of thrifting with yours truly! Hope you are all as excited as I was to learn about the ladies behind Tilly Style Tuesdays. So welcome Lilly!!
Name: Ileana (a.k.a. Lilly)
Age: I just turned the big 21!
Where do you blog: Thy and I blog at tillystyle.wordpress.com. Follow us! I usually write my posts in my apartment between or after classes.
How did you get into blogging: My bestie Thy actually got me into blogging. We always received compliments about our outfits so we decided why not share our very different styles with the world.
How would you describe your personal style: Definitely flirty, fun, and sophisticated. I am the kind of girl who loves those one-of-a-kind pieces with the smallest details such as buttons on a sleeve or a scalloped short bottom. You will usually see me in solid colors, but thanks to Thy I'm slowly starting to explore those crazy new patterns the fashion world is throwing at us.
Where do you work or what do you study in school: I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch for 2 years now. I know what you are thinking and yes...it is the store known for its loud music, dark lighting, and intense aroma, but you get use to it after awhile and who can complain about great discounts on clothes?! Other than work, I am a full time student working towards graduating with a major in Marketing at Barrett, the Honors College at ASU. Just 2 more years to go!
What is your dream job: There are so many dream jobs that I would love to have, but I think it would be amazing to become a marketing director, preferably in the field of fashion of course.
What are some other blogs you love: Two of my all time favorites has to be @Sydneyfashionblogger and @fashionhippieloves (you can follow them on insta!). They are always traveling around the world, wearing gorgeous outfits by world-known designers, and all the while having fun. Why can't this be me?
What's been your favorite post from your blog so far: It would have to be my "home-run outfit." I love going out to watch and cheer on games whether it be baseball, hockey, basketball, or football. I'm a tomboy at heart (surprising I know), but who doesn't love feeling cute and comfortable in a favorite pair of shorts and a t-shirt?
Favorite season and why: Fall... layers upon layers of amazing clothing and the knee high socks that peak out of leather riding boots! Need I say more?
Favorite drink: Well I just turned 21 so I think I'm allowed to say piña colada. Trust me, order one, even if you have to order a virgin piña colada, your taste buds will thank you.
Favorite food in the world: Sushi!!! I could eat it 24/7, except for maybe breakfast, but other than that it's pretty darn amazing.
Favorite musical artist: I can't say I have a favorite. Artists I listen to range from Beyonce, Shakira, Aloe Blacc, and even Blake Shelton.
Favorite guilty pleasure: It would have to be making pizookies (cookies & ice-cream) with my boyfriend and watching extremely cheesy movies in our pj's.
Which actress would play you in a movie version of your life: Definitely Jennifer Lawrence! She is funny, confident, and not afraid to be her crazy self.
What's the most beloved article of clothing you own: Right now it would have to be my natural waist, ripped shorts from A & F. They are extremely comfortable and go with almost everything!
Your favorite place to shop or clothing brand: Can I say thrift shopping? The options are endless, especially on a college budget. Buffalo Exchange and Last Chance are two of my favorite places to go.
Go-to accessory: My rose gold, diamond studded Fossil watch that my boyfriend gave me for Christmas last year. It goes with everything, and I always get compliments!
Shoes or purses: Can I pick both? But if it was a life or death situation, I would have to pick shoes. You can never have enough shoes (as cliché as it may sound)!If you could wear only one outfit every day for the rest of your life, what would it be: A summer dress. You can dress it up with heels and jewelry or down with a pair of sandals. It's the perfect go-to outfit.
I am so excited for these two to be bringing their youthful and fun perspectives on fashion to this blog so check back every Tuesday to hear what the girls over at Tillystyle have to say!
