Every time I see one of Chiara Ferragni’s style posts of cool Instagram shots, I wish she was my best friend. Not only is Ms. Ferragni super stylish, but she seems so fun and has a great outlook on life. I came across her blog, The Blonde Salad about six months ago and I’m hooked. Not only does she run a successful blog, but she also has her own unique shoe collection (her pieces are insane), and she rubs shoulders with the best at Dior fashion shows and the Golden Globes.
Launching her blog in 2009, Chiara inherited her passion for fashion and photography from her mother. She started up her blog like the rest of us, as a way to express herself visually. Aside from the unbelievable success of her shoe line, Business of Fashion named Chiara as one of the most influential personalities of the international fashion world.
At 27 years old, Chiara doesn’t take herself too serious. I love this quality in a person and it shows through some of her posts and personal shots. A lover of Mickey Mouse, she incorporates her youthful ways into her blog making her all the more relatable. She is all about enjoying life to the max and making the most of it.
Every girl loves a good handbag, a lovely Kate Spade or Accessorize bag makes me extremely happy. Chiara however, is all about the Chanel and Valentino. Along with these fabulous bags, she always have an embellished clutch with her name across it. Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a HUGE collection of these beautiful designers just locked away in your walk in wardrobe. Ahhhh to live the high live, eh?
Now on to the shoes! I’m a sucker for all things novelty. I have a strong collection of various brands at home and I have fallen head over heads for Chiara’s quirky collection. Mixing food and fashion is the way forward, add a touch of beauty to it and I’m on board. It is my mission to treat myself to a pair, hard part is picking my favourite design. Am I a popcorn lover or flirty lash kind of girl? 😉
Again, Chiara has made sure that her fun for fashion attitude is represented throughout her collection between the bold colour, fabulous prints and sparkling fabric, or shall I say sequins?!
Only in my wildest dreams could I imagine attending a Golden Globe after party. However for Chiara, all of her dreams seem to be coming true. If any of you have ever watched the fashion reality programme, Fashion Bloggers, then you will recognise Zanita alongside Nicole Warner from Gary Pepper Girl.
And finally, I’m sure that all of you stylish ladies have been lusting over the images from the Dior Haute Couture SS15 Show?!?! Well not Chiara. No, instead this lucky rascal got to take a seat at the fabulous show and enjoy it in real life. That is a mere dream of mine and it is crazy that this is a daily part of her life. I mean, getting to visit Paris alone and take the standard selfie in front of the Eiffel Tower is still on my bucket list. One day, Niamh. One day! 😉
If you are serious about fashion and/or blogging, then I would seriously suggest checking out Chiara. Have a great day!
