Here's a great interview with awesome fashion blogger Anna Pitto of www.followpix.com! We had the opportunity to catch up with Anna who talked about her style, her dream job and she also revealed a few useful tips for aspiring bloggers. Have a nosey!
Ah, we just love fashion! And we found some amazingly talented
bloggers who have the same passion for fashion. And Anna Pitto is
one of them. Hmm, her blog, www.followpix.com, is a place where
you'll find a riot of outfit ideas but also lots of helpful posts.
Check out Anna's exclusive interview!
BG : Why fashion blogging? Let’s start by hearing a little about yourself and your blog.
Anna Pitto: My name is Anna Pitto, I live in Genoa, Italy, I'm 22 and I study Business! Well, I was really bored by my studies, actually. I was a big fan of fashion. I couldn't wait for the next issues of my fav magazines to come out every week. I had the hobby of drawing some dresses-sketches, too. And I could also add that I adore English, so I used it as an excuse to read every day a lot of international blogs. It is like exercising, uh? Then, one day, my boyfriend and my sister together pushed me to open one all mine: and this is it! It has become my best companion when I want to escape from those boring numbers, laws and graphics.
BG:Do you find it difficult to separate your blog from other blogs?
Anna Pitto: I always try to create that distinctive gap I usually look for when I read other inspirational blogs. It is really difficult. Sometimes I feel like I'm copying someone, and it is really an annoying feeling: I'd love to reach uniqueness everytime I can. And that is my purpose!
BG: How would you describe your own personal style?
Anna Pitto: I keep it simple. I love basic outfits, adorned with bright jewelry or eye-catching accessories! For example: skinny jeans, white t-shirt, colored ballerinas and matchy-matchy maxi-necklace. That's it. Let down hair and a little bit of lipstick maybe! Sometimes, on the other hand, I wear elegant adorned dresses with little clutches and high heels. I like to focus on a particular detail everytime, to sum up.
BG: Who or what has been your greatest fashion influence? Do you have a style icon?
Anna Pitto: I got most of my inspiration from my family. Especially thanks to 4 figures: my grandma is the most elegant woman I know (she easily wears wide-legs Jacob Cohen jeans, red Converse and an Hermes pendant, but she is a big fan of cachemere leggings too!), my aunt number one (brunette, with a passion for flowered silk shirts, and a strong Mediterranean look which make us look alike), my aunt number two (blonde, with an addiction to high-heeled shoes and amazing bags), and my cousin/best friend (she looks like a model, and I mean, for real, so everything she wears looks beautiful on her, but she also is one of the most best-dressed girls I know so...bingo!). I have some other icons, such as Ines de la Fressange, Olivia Palermo, Miroslava Duma, Hanneli Mustaparta, Anne Hathaway.
BG: What is the one item in your wardrobe you couldn't live without?
Anna Pitto: A brown pull. When I study, my outfit is usually composed by it, a pair of jeans/leggings and a t-shirt. Plus, a maxi bag for all the stuff!
BG: Your favorite designers and brands?
Anna Pitto: Oh-oh this is the most difficult question of the entire interview. I could simply say Chanel, Saint Laurent and Louboutin...But I prefer to invite you to follow my blog and discover some other designers, famous or not, I walked into during this blog-period ;)
BG: You can't leave house without...
Anna Pitto: I can't leave house without...phone-lipbalm-chewinggum-scarf-notebook-pen-keys-gloves-elastics-plasters-hairbrush-postit-pencil-calculator-rubber-lipstick-businesscards-documents...I'm a very-organised girl. Or my bag is.
BG: Your favorite magazine is..
Anna Pitto: I know it is strange but I adore the 4 yearly numbers of H&M magazines! I also read a lot of piles of Elle and Glamour.
BG: What would be the ideal job for you?
Anna Pitto: I don't know yet. I'm a bit confused about it. I'd love to continue something linked to the web-marketing, which is really interesting to me. But I would also love to take part into my family business which is completely out of fashion!
BG: Finally, any advice for those getting into fashion blogging?
Anna Pitto: Have fun, and always look for beautiful things: maybe you'll become that who is looked for!
