How would you describe your blog in one sentence?
Pretty Little World is a blog that showcases fashion and design that's modern but that also has classic appeal.
What was your inspiration behind the items you picked for your dream wardrobe for fall?
For me fall is a season that's all about comfort - but that doesn't mean you have to live in sweats. I chose pieces that allow people to be comfortable, but still have a polished and slightly glamorous style. I also wanted to pick pieces that people could easily mix-and-match in a wardrobe: for instance, sequin skirts that go with frilly blouses and sky high heels, or just as easily with a loose sweatshirt and flat boots.
What are your favorite trends for fall?
My favorite trends for fall are sequins (I'm so thrilled that people are finally getting into sequins for every day!), ankle boots with a strong wedge, and fur (faux or real, vintage or new). The easiest way to add a little bit of interest to a plain outfit is to toss on a fur vest and a cute scarf.
If you win the $1,000 prize, what will you use it for?
There's so much crazy pretty fashion out there, but I've also been trying to be a better shopper, and really only buy pieces that are classic and that I'll wear for a long time - $1000 would be an amazing way to add some of those pieces to my collection.
What are you looking for in reader-submitted sets? What should your readers keep in mind to win $1,000 if you are the winner?
I'm pretty partial to classic outfits (jeans, striped tee, trench, etc.), but I like little punky touches too. I'm interested to see how readers might change-up classic pieces and make the outfits special. People have been creating really cool looks so far just by adding accessories in fun ways!
