We first discovered Sabrina Carder in our favourite fashion monthly Company Magazine. Sabby C was featured in a shoot with our classic embellished perspex clutch bag for their November issue, now we check her blog 'The Young Eccentric' for our daily fix of Sabby's style. Blogging mainly about fashion and her personal style, there is a lovely mix of photography and everyday musings.
The 20 year old film student (who is also an identical twin) from just outside London is definetly a blogger to watch. Her outfit choices can be labelled 'eccentric' but we think they are inspirational. If you want to avoid wardrobe envy, look away now...
What inspired you to start your blog?
Hearing the phrase "Sabrina, what ARE you wearing!?" by most of my friends and family ever since I started to dress myself may have had a slight influence on why I started my blog. I love the fact I can freely express my style and by doing so it has given me a lot more confidence to wear what I want and not to care about what others think.
Describe your style.
My style is very eclectic. It often goes between grandma and a grunge tomboy. I love mixing styles and also have a great soft spot for 90's nostalgia. I never plan what I'm going to wear so you never know what I'm going to turn up looking like, or from what decade.
What piece of clothing could you not live without?
My oversized vintage Levi's denim jacket.
What's been your best vintage find?
I recently purchased an awesome vintage embroidered silk bomber jacker for the bargain price of £7! More to the point it makes me feel completely bad ass (Ryan Gosling in Drive has nothing to do with this...)
If you could raid someone's wardrobe, whose would it be?
Cara Delevingne - I love her novelty streetwear looks featuring a lot of Jeremy Scott and Local Heroes!
What's your favourite item from the Skinnydip AW13 collection?
I'm loving the silver spike headphones! I wear my headphones around my neck most of the time, the bling factor of these would complete any outfit!
Never wear something just because all your friends are - embrace your own style.
New season must have?
Sandals with a chunky heel and cute socks.
What is your most treasured possession?
The collection of jewellery and clothing I kept of my nan's.
Who was the last person you chose to follow on Instagram?
Lily Collett (@LILYCOLLETT), she makes the most awesome handmade matching top and bottom sets in amazing retro/vintage fabrics.
What's your fave blog to read on your lunch break?
style2bones (www.style3bones.com) which is run by Dominique Nghiem's - I want everything she wears! It's 90's soft grunge heaven!
What is dream career?
I would love to do a job where I can dabble in and out of different media platforms. I have great respect for Fearne Cotton, Alexa Chung and Jameela Jamil and their numerous different ventures and talents, I would love to follow in their footsteps. I also have a strange dream of going on tour with a band as I love music and want to live on one of those touring buses!
If you were invisible for a day you would...
Madly dance around in a food shop eating as much yummy food as I could.
