Tell us about yourself.
My name is Béatrice and I'm a 22-year old Journalism student. I live in Bordeaux, France, but often go to Paris to shop with my sisters. I am a real shopaholic! I created my blog a few months ago to share my outfits and my style.
What's the story behind your Polyvore name?
I chose amber-nicki-rose as my Polyvore profile name because I love Amber Rose and Nicki Minaj.
Amber Rose is very photogenic, she has such a beautiful face and smile. Nicki Minaj is such a talented rapper and singer -- I love her voice, her songs, and her style.
What are your personal aspirations?
I would like to be a fashion journalist. I'd love to travel around the world to attend the fashion week and see celebrities like Anna Wintour, Victoria Beckham, Rachel Bilson sitting next to me at a fashion show.
It would be so exciting!
How has Polyvore affected your life?
I can say that Polyvore has changed my life! Before Polyvore, I knew famous brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Burberry, Gucci, Fendi... but now it's different, I know many more. And when I see people in the streets, I'm able to recognize the brands of bags or shoes they are wearing because I saw them on Polyvore. My sister and my friends are always surprised by this and ask: "How do you
know that?" And I answer: "Thanks to Polyvore!"
Describe your personal sense of style.
I love wearing mini skirts even if it's cold outside. It may be strange but I feel free with my mini skirt on! A mini skirt, blazer, loose top, satchel bag, high heels, and let's go! I really don't care what people say about my style and my outfits, I wear what I love. I don't mind if it doesn't please others as long as it pleases me. If I feel good, that's all that matters.
What are your favorite brands?
My favorite brands are Hermes and Chanel for bags, especially the Chanel 2.55 in black and gold -- I would die for it! I love Christian Louboutin for shoes, the Daffodile platform pumps are so amazing but I'm not sure I could walk with them! I also like Alexander Wang for sweaters and tops because the cuts are often asymmetrical and very original. I love J Brand jeans. Balmain and Isabel Marant make beautiful blazers and jackets.
Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?
I just wanna say that the Polyvore Team does incredible work each day; there is always something new on the site. So thank you so much, Polyvore Team! You rock!
