Interview with Zlataa

Zlataa has a way of turning basics into magic. Whether she's pairing denim cutoffs with a vibrant handbag or pair of heels or mixing an edgy leather dress with a simple cardigan, it looks like accessorizing is definitely her sweet spot! One can only drool over the flawlessness of her outfits.

Here are some of her sets:

Tell us about yourself.

Hello everyone! :) My name is Zlata, I'm a 19-year old IT & digital economy student. I am a huge fan of photography, film, music, traveling, design and fashion of course. :) I currently live in Bosnia, but I'd love to move elsewhere someday.

How would you describe your sense of style/fashion?

My style is very simple, but sometimes I love to add edgy or strong colored accessories or jewelery (especially rings) to a basic outfit.

What's hot in your 'hood right now?

Floral and animal prints.

What's one thing you wish people would wear more of?

Leather skirts. I rarely see people wearing them here...almost never.

How did you discover Polyvore?

My sister told me about it, and I was delighted. :)

Tell us a little about what you use Polyvore for and why. What do you like about Polyvore?

I love everything about Polyvore, it's my virtual closet with all the amazing stuff I want so bad in my real closet. :) I use it to express my style and to enjoy in other people's creations. I also have really great friends here! Without them Polyvore wouldn't be the same place for me, they inspire me a lot every day. :)

If you could share one tip or trick with a new Polyvore member, what would it be?

Just enjoy sharing your creativity and sense of fashion. ;)

Do you have a favorite fashion designer or style icon who has influenced you?

I don't have just one favorite designer or style icon.

What online stores do you like to clip from?

I'm not much of a clipper. In the past, I've clipped some things from missselfridge.com and asos.com.

What are your 3 favorite sets of the ones you've made?

It's so hard to choose!

What's your favorite set created by another Polyvore member?

This is so hard, it's impossible to choose! But okay, here is my favorite for today. It's a set made by my dear iwa, it's so simple but so stylish. I love all the items.

We interviewed
shoptillyadrop last and she wants to ask you if we should always follow the trends?

Not necessarily. There are a lot of people who don't follow fashion trends at all, but have great style and taste in clothes.

Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?

Having an option to sort 'My Items' by color would be great!

Bok, Zlata! Obožavam tvoj stil...
"Something Bigger Than Your Skin" mi je tvoj najdraži 'outfit'. I imaš pravo, ni u Hrvatskoj cure ne nose kožne suknje, cvjetne uzorke, jarke boje i funky uzorke. Uglavnom ulicama svog grada i Osijeka i Zagreba viđam cure u crnim, sivim i dosadnim bojama. Nemoj me krivo shvatiti, nije da one ne izgledaju dobro, naprotiv, ali mi uvijek fali malo boje :)). Trudim se to promjeniti...

Her sets are amazing, and I am so proud that someone from Balkan is popular here, and Zlataa really deserves it, because of her unique style...
