Lauren's Blog Loving - Coco from Vodka in Teacups

Welcome to the first in my ten part series of Lauren's Blog Loving (If you want to follow me on the REAL Bloglovin then click here). I'm so excited to be introducing you to my 10 favourite bloggers - I love interview articles myself!

My first interviewee is a blogger I hugely love! Her blog is fairly new and deserves lots of love for her stylish, uplifting blog. Here's my interview with her.

Coco from Vodka in Teacups


 


Hello! Please introduce yourself and your blog

Hello, I’m Coco! I run Vodka in Teacups, a fashion/art/things I find inspiring blog.

 

When did you start blogging and why?

I signed up for Livejournal when I was about 12 or 13 (10 years ago, yikes!) because it was all the rage and I guess I’ve been blogging on and off since then. ViT started at the beginning of this year as something less about my personal life and more about style and things I find exciting or uplifting.

 

What is your favourite feature on your blog/what posts are you most proud of?

I try to make the blog as positive-minded as possible. Fashion isn’t the most inclusive of industries so I like to balance it with things that encourage self-love. It can be really easy to get caught up in one standard of beauty and worth. I appreciate beautiful clothes AND beautiful minds.

 

Describe your style

A friend once said I dress “like you’re going to sleep with men and then eat them” which is surprisingly apt! Girly but with a hard edge. I have an hourglass figure so I wear a lot of pencil skirts, but with leather jackets, super high heels, etc. Lace tea dresses with knuckle duster rings and such.

 

What’s your favourite item of clothing (and a photo if you like)

My ¾-length sleeve leather jacket. I throw it over everything; jeans & flats, ballgowns, whatever! It stops outfits looking too ‘put together’. My Mulberry Bayswater must get a mention too as I carry everything with me everywhere and it’s really stood up to my abuse!

 

Oh that picture of you hugging the Bayswater makes me so jealous! I know you have a huge amount of knowedlge about designer fashion so here’s a question I’m dying to ask - What is your favourite highstreet shop and who is your favourite designer

ASOS! Updated daily, good quality, and not too expensive. I think they’re even quicker than Topshop in translating runway trends to mass production, actually. My favourite designer is Alexander McQueen… nothing will replace him but Sarah Burton is doing an incredible job of executing his vision without sacrificing her own creativity.

 

Oh yes! I loved your blog post about Sarah Burton and the takeover! Apart from blogging, what do you do?

I’m currently a housegirlfriend. If it’s a chore, I do it on a daily basis!

 

What is your dream?

To own a small bungalow with a huge amount of farmland, and rescue animals full-time. Cleaning out kennels and litter trays isn’t chic or fashionable but it’s where my heart has been since I was little. I’m a proud crazy animal lady!

 

Tell me a secret?

I meditate twice a day, every day, and have done for the past 8 years.
