The New Prep

Tell us about yourself.

Kim Thomas, 31. Memphis, TN native. I’m a legal assistant and salesgirl at Banana Republic during the day, and a fashion writer and a consultant by night. I’m addicted to magazines, enjoy painting, beading, writing, discovering new music, and shopping for makeup!

2. How and why did you start your blog?

I first started blogging in 2007 on MySpace (it was a personal/relationship blog) but I started KP Fusion September 2010 because I needed an outlet. I was switching industries (I used to do contracting at an insurance company) and I knew that I wanted to write about fashion but due to opportunities being limited in my city –our fashion industry is relatively small- I launched it to gain more experience and to find my writing “voice”. I researched blogs to figure out layout, writing style, and topics and went from there!

3. What are your personal aspirations/goals?

The ultimate goal is to own my own boutique and to be a fashion editor at a magazine. That has always been the dream. I will also continue to build my styling portfolio so that I can do more wardrobe consulting and freelance styling work. I want to be completely immersed in fashion!

4. How has Polyvore affected your life?

Polyvore is AMAZING. Because it’s not always easy to do a pull and set up a shoot every time you’re inspired and want to try a look, Polyvore gives you the opportunity to do it. You have access to so many brands that you may not come across regularly or could only dream to use! KP Fusion is not a personal style blog (it’s more editorial), so I can still create looks that readers may want to try while still displaying my own personal thoughts on what I find fashionable. For bloggers that don’t have to budget to produce their own photo shoots yet, Polyvore saves the day!

5. Describe your personal sense of style.

My personal style is classic with a twist. I’m curvy so I stick with what looks best on my body. I like trends but I’m selective with what I try; every trend isn’t for everybody so usually I experiment with the season’s hot color, and with my accessories and shoes.

6. What are some of your favorite brands?

Banana Republic, Elizabeth and James, Alexander Wang, ASOS, Kate Spade, Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, and DKNY.

7. Got any requests for the Polyvore team?

Men’s fashion. I want to incorporate it into the blog and Polyvore sets would be perfect!
