Frequently Asked Questions..
How old are you / Where are you from / What do you do?
I am currently 19 years old, I am from Sheffield, in the North of England andI blog part time and run my online store You Wear Fashion full time. I sell mainly vintage with an occasionally reworked vintage piece. Take a look!
What shoe size/dress size are you/how tall are you?
I am a uk size 3 for shoes, UK 6 for clothes & I'm only a teeny tiny 5ft tall!
But you look so tall in your pictures?
I know I know - Look HUGE! I think it;s just the way the angles are - but I don't do it intentionally! I have fairly long legs and wear heels alot so that adds to the illusion haha!
How much do you weigh? You've lost so much weight - how did you do it?!
i haven't weighed myself in a long time - I am healthy and happy and thats all that matters (and is the only thing that should matter)
Regarding weight loss etc, I am a keen workout junkie and I eat quite a healthy diet (with occasional treats. As I got older weight came off a I lost alot of puppy fat. Theres no magic secret - I do however live and swear by the 30 day shred. It made me much more toned!
What camera do you use?
I use a Nikon d3000 which is fairly cheap, around £250 on ebay or amazon, nowadays. Very good for beginners! I also use it with a 50mm lense I bought off ebay, which is around £200 brand new? I would definitely recommend it - it gives you the gorgeous 'blurry' background effect. It's more about lense quality than camera quality if anything!
I also just use the auto settings on my camera!
Who takes your photos
My little sister who is 14 usually! I do pay her haha don't worry I don't force her! Sometimes my boyfriend does however :-)
What are your favourite online stores?
I LOVE International stores such as Nastygal, Wasteland and Romwe!
Closer to home, My favourite online store is Missguided, and highstreet shops are Zara, H&M and Urban Outfitters. I also love vintage, charity shops and carboots - defnitely have a good rummage if you are a vintage junkie like myself!
What carboots do you go to?
I live in Sheffield, and on the outskirts of where I live (my county is South Yorkshire) is Derbyshire, and I go to 3 different ones which I honestly don't really know the names of, but I know are in Eckington, Chesterfield and Dronfield. I'm sorry I'm not much help - I've been going since I was little so just know it by directions rather than name! As for if I know of other carboots anywhere - I'm sorry I literally only know about ones near me!
How do you find such good bargains?
I think it's like a sixth sense now (haha) since I've been going since I was little. But take a look at my carboot guide HERE for a little help!
I want to start a blog but I don't know where to start / how to get noticed. HELP
Starting a blog is really not as daunting as you think. I would recommend Blogger.com, it's free and very easy to use. Have a little fiddle around and look at tutorials and you will learn about it pretty quickly. In regards to getting 'big' - blogging isn't about being big or well known. I have only really been 'noticed' this year, and I've been going 3 years! It's just about really, being honest and blogging about things you love. Whether you get 'big' or not, as long as you know you love your blog and what you do thats all that matters!
Do you have a (insert social networking site here)?
