In our next post, Lorna will share how she styles her jewelry. Stay tuned!
How does it feel to be the 2013 Bath in Fashion winner? How did you celebrate?
I'm actually really overwhelmed that I won. I never usually win anything so to win something as big as that I am so excited. I can't thank my readers enough and everyone who voted for me. It means so much to me. I've been blogging for just over 3 years now so it's nice to know it's finally paying off! As for celebrating, unfortunately I'm sick at the moment but I will probably have a meal out with my boyfriend on the weekend. I'm not really a party person so you can expect something quiet lol.
What drew you to be a fashion blogger?
I actually didn't intend to be a fashion blogger. It was more of a natural progression. I originally started Raindrops of Sapphire as a place to call my own where I could share my likes on fashion and my outfits to communicate with others who felt the same and then it went on from there as a slow development. I just really enjoy being able to share fashion tastes and everything with everyone else.
If you could steal a celebrity's closet, who would it be and why?
That's an easy one! Definitely Jessica Alba! As I'm a denim addict she has the most amazing denim collection! She also styles her jeans perfectly; her style is a lot like my own so I would definitely choose her!
What store is your go-to for jewelry?
I have a mixture of places I usually buy my jewellery from! Topshop and ASOS are my main go to places as they have some gorgeous statement pieces for a great price. I'm happy to buy jewellery from anywhere though as long as I like the pieces! I don't mind what the brand is. It's all down to taste.
What's the last piece of jewelry you bought?
I actually bought a few pieces in one go. I got a few gold and colourful spike bracelets and animals printed bracelets as well as some bold crystal rings. I picked these up in the sale a couple of weeks ago! I love to accessorize.
