Hello! Please introduce yourself and your blog

 Hi! My name is Amie and I write a fashion blog called She Wore WHAT!?

When did you start blogging and why?

 I started writing my blog a couple of years ago because I have always loved fashion but could never afford to wear designer pieces, so I used my blog to highlight trend-driven high street pieces and also websites or stores that I found that were affordable and I wanted to share with others. I also love vintage shopping and I used my blog to show my finds.

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

 I always highlight what I am up to on my blog over other social networking sites for fashion like hypeed, chictopia and lookbook. I'm always really proud if one of my looks gets a lot of votes or if my followers make comments about it, it's a great feeling!

Describe your style

 My style is based on elegance-I always think about my grandmothers style when I am dressing and I think this is why I have such an affinity with vintage clothes. I never wear jeans-in fact I only own one pair! I much prefer peg trousers with silk tops and fitted dresses which I wear with a twist like a vintage boot. I love classic pieces which stand the test of time.

Whats your favourite item of clothing?

 I love trousers. My favourite trouser shapes are harem or peg leg shapes. I find them so easy to wear and I have soooo many pairs!

What is your favourite High Street shop and who is your favourite designer?

 I tend to mainly shop online or in charity shops...I love a bit of Topshop now and again, but two sites I really recommend are Yull.co.uk for fabulous British shoes and thecherrycloset.com for amazing vintage. Designer wise, I love classic houses like Chanel and YSL but also (slightly) more affordable brands like Acne and Jil Sander-classic, clean shapes and stylish pieces.

Apart from Blogging, what do you do?

 I am a fashion writer and would love to make this my full time job. But I also work in retail!

What is your dream?

 I would love to own a vintage boutique with my boyfriend, selling vintage clothing (me) and records (him) I would love it!

Tell me a Secret

 I am addicted to 80's and 90's sitcoms and watch them on repeat! My favourite is The Darling Buds of May!
