Here in the Skinnydip studio we love lusting over fashion blogs. Scrolling through street style inspiration and discvoering new brands through a blog is a daily lunchtime occourance. We came across Victoria, a Manchester based blogger through a friends recommendation. Now we check her blog, Inthefrow for our daily fashion fix!
Victoria, a pastel pink haired 24 year old is a Fashion Retailling lecturer by day, blogger by night and we cant get enough of her style. Any girl who can go from being completely glam to cool grunge is fine by us! Skinnydip has just launched up north in Topshop Arndale and what better way to get to know they city when with a local fashionista tour guide...
What inspired you to start your blog?
I was massively inspired by the blogging world when I randomly stumbled upon it two years ago. I realised what a huge and exciting opportunity it was and decided to give it a go. 14 months later I still love every minute.
Describe your style.
I always describe my style as eclectic. I can go from being sophisticated and tailored wearing designer and heels one day to grungy and casual the next with a beanie and a band tee. It all depends on who I'm seeing that day, where I'm going and what the weathers like.
What piece of clothing could you not live without?
At the moment I couldn't live without my heeled boots collection. I just bought an incredible navy and monochrome pair from Topshop and a wedged heeled pair from Daniel Footwear. It's all I wear now! It means you can still be warm and comfortable but stylish.
If you could raid someone's wardrobe, whose would it be?
I would probably raid the Olsens wardrobe. They are just so cool and always look awesome. Otherwise it would defiantly be Victoria Beckham.
Whats your favourite item from the Skinnydip AW13 collection?
I absolutely adore the Tropical iPhone case with the pink gem stones. As you may be able to tell, I like pink at the moment so this would be the perfect case for selfies. I also love the perspex clutches. Just so unique to modernise a tailored look.
Find a comfortable and sensible pair of heeled boots for winter rather than flats and you can transform your outfit from casual to stylish without loosing warmth. Also, any jacket with shearling is usually a winner for the winter.
Christmas party must have?
Sequins, sequins and more sequins. I am absolutely obsessed with them right now. Nothing says Christmas party more than some sparkle.
What is on your Christmas list?
I'm hoping for a new camera lens, but I have also asked for some beautiful vanilla candles from the White Company and a few makeup and hair treats.
What is your most treasured possession?
I would probably say my new Sandro camel coat. It called to me in Selfridges and it was the last one so I had to buy it. Beautiful fabric, silk lining and a cream shearling collar. So pretty!
Who was the last person you chose to follow on Instagram?
I last followed @georgedrury. A guy came across in my feed who does beautiful things with fonts and lettering. It's something I havnt seen before so I figured I'd give him a follow for a refreshing change.
What's your fave blog to read on your lunch break?
My favorite blog is Native Fox. She makes me wish I had all the money in the world. She dresses in head to toe designer everyday and lives somewhere in California. She is just fantastic at what she does.
If you were invisible for a day you would...
I would probably head down to London and break into Buckingham Palace to sit with the Queen and her corgis. I'd love to know what she actually does in her spare time!
