Carmen's questions

1.What inspires you the most?
Fashion-wise, images on tumblr, pinterest & blogs inspire me mostly, as well as people's personal styles. I'm also inspired by amazing books and films.

2.What is one item of clothing that you can't live without?
I don't think I could live without my black skinny jeans. They're so versatile and go with absolutely everything. 

3. What is your favorite fashion themed movie?
The Devil Wears Prada for sure!

4. What are you looking forward to wearing this spring?
I'm on the hunt for some boyfriend jeans as well as some high-waisted ankle grazers. Also, I just wanna wear pretty pastels because I tend to keep it black n' white monochrome most of the time. 

5. Heels or Flats?
Oooft, this is a tough one! It really depends on my mood and outfit, because I love heels, but sometimes I like to wear bad-ass high top sneakers or my Doc Martens. 

6. Your biggest style regret?
Hmm, I'm not sure if I regret anything too much from recent years. Although when I was really young, I used to love wearing these really tight stretchy crew neck tank tops with awful graffiti prints or cringey shapes. FACE PALM! But then again, I guess I didn't look too ridiculous since everyone seemed to think they were a good idea!

7. Your favorite song?
How could I possibly pick just one!? But right now I'm gonna say 'Waves (Robin Schulz Remix)' by Mr Probz cause it's aaaamazing! 

8. What's your favorite dessert?

9. The last book you've read?
Right now I'm reading 'Thrive' by Arianna Huffington!

10. What is your favorite season for fashion?
Mmm, probably in between seasons, where I can wear summer clothes, but team them up with boots, cardigans, light weight jackets etc. I'm not a massive fan of Winter!

11. Favorite magazine (on-line or print)?
Other than fashion magazines, I love reading Intelligent Life. But I'm on the hunt for some great new fashion mags! I need ideas! 

I nominate these 11 wonderful blogs:

11 questions for my nominees

1) I need new books to read! What's the best one you've ever read?
