Tell us your name, age, profession and what you typically wear every day
My name is Ana, I'm a 29-year-old mom-to-be, and I work as a marketing assistant for an energy-efficiency project. My style is very casual, I like comfortable clothes made out of natural materials, such as cotton and silk. Jeans are inevitable, a necessary part of my closet :) Although my Polyvore sets are filled with heels, in real life I wear them only when necessary - I feel good in them but I'm not really a fashion victim - comfort comes first! Also, I love dresses and skirts, especially summer ones!
Where do you live, and what trends are big there?
I live in Croatia's capital Zagreb and I'd say we're a fashionable country. We have many great Croatian designers, but also, people here just have a great sense of style. Judging by the girls on the streets, a big trend for this spring are floral prints and strong colors as well as wingtip shoes.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do like about that brand?
I couldn't say that I have only one favorite brand, I appreciate many famous brands as well as DIY projects of certain bloggers. I like Jason Wu, Lanvin, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Balmain, Burberry Prorsum, Chloe, Stella McCartney. Those designers are not really alike, but their designs have a certain appeal - they are interesting, simple and special at the same time. It's a great art to create something that appears to be simple but still catches the eye with an interesting detail.
Which celebrity has great style?
I love Michelle Williams's style, as well as Blake Lively's (especially in her role in Gossip Girl). Sarah Jessica Parker is already an icon, and Jennifer Aniston as well. Recently I've noticed Olivia Palermo, whose style is definitely inspiring!
What are your personal aspirations/goals?
My personal goal has nothing to do with fashion, really :) Fashion is just a world I like to dive into once in a while, but my personal goal is only to enjoy life as much as I can and appreciate all the small things in it. I would love to create a business of my own some day and enjoy in doing it, as well as to enjoy a happy family life, filled with laughter, love and health.
How has Polyvore affected your life?
Polyvore is a hobby of mine that helps me to take my mind off of some things and to be a little girl playing dress up once more :)
I find it entertaining and inspiring - you get to see the latest fashion trends and have the freedom to adjust them to your personal sense of style. I have a certain creativity in me and this is just one way of showing and developing it.
Describe your personal sense of style.
My style is simple and "clean", I'm not up for some fashion experiments. I love interesting details in clothes and jewelry but true elegance can only be simple. Therefore, my rule would be "less is more".
