Today I wanna introduce you to Natalie Suarez' blog Natalie off duty which I discovered quite recently. Besides her loveliness I was fascinated by her easy but amazing style so I talked to the young lady:
1.How old are you and where are you from?
I'm 18 years old and from Los Angeles, California.
2.What's your occupation?
3.Which three words describe you best?
Friendly, smart, creative
4.When did you star blogging and why did you start?
I started blogging about 2 months ago. My sister introduced me to amazing fashion blogs and I found so much inspiration. I found images I could relate to. Street Style inspires me more than any magazine editorial could.I started "Natalie Off Duty" in hopes of inspiring others as well. Having my blog is such a fun way to connect with all the people from around the world who are as interested in fashion as I am.
5.How would you describe your personal style?
I would say my personal style is unique. I have a ton of vintage pieces that are of such great quality and so different from what stores are selling now.I mix them in with designer pieces and inexpensive pieces from Zara or H&M. I like tough looking clothing, like a pair of vintage combat boots that I'll throw into a girly outfit. I just hate looking like everyone else, so wearing vintage and staying away from trends, sets my look apart from the rest.
6.What's your favorite item of the moment?
I'm in love with Alexander Wang's ankled buckle booties.
5.How much money do you spent per month for new clothes/shoes/bags?
It really depends. Some months I'll spend a few hundred dollars on clothes, while some months, I don't buy anything. Right now, I'm only buying pieces that are different from anything I already own,which isn't very much, considering I have so many clothes!
6.Where do you like to shop?
I love shopping vintage and second-hand because I always end up finding inexpensive pieces of really good quality! I'll hit up a Goodwill or Salvation Army once in a while. But I do love luxury pieces that I can get at Barneys. Big department stores like Barneys, Neimans, and Saks always draw me in, especially when they have great sales!
7.How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Hm, I don't really know. Probably like 25 really great shoes.
8.One of the current trends you would never go with/hate...
I don't think I will ever wear Harem pants. The shape just isn't very flattering haha! But some people can rock them!
9.If you could buy one item no matter how much it costs what would it be?
I would probably buy a new Bally leather jacket. Their leather is so soft and light. I have one already that is a bit old, but is still amazing! I wouldn't mind having another one, because I'd wear it all the time.
10.Who's your personal fashion icon?
I love Jane Birkin. She had fantastic personal style when she was young, and stays stylish as she ages beautifully. She makes everything look effortless and cool. I think her daughters, Lou and Charlotte, definitely got their great sense of style from her as well!
11.Heels or flats?
Heels even though I am already so tall. I love walking in them!
Fashion is fun to play around with especially when there are so many beautiful clothes out there!
13.Tell us one of your vices.
I bite my nails. I wear nail polish whenever I'm not working to grow them out and stop biting haha!

'Coco avan Chanel' came to our cinema too. Gonna watch it tonight. I'm very excited and can't wait to see it.
Actually I was planning to do an outfit post but I'm a bit ill and look like ghost so instead I'll post these pics of Skye Stracke for the German Tush. The editorial is called 'Let Me' and I think it's brilliant apart from her face expression that appears a little obscene to me.

Lately I noticed more and more boots with leopard prints. At first I was a little unsure whether they look a little trashy but this trend is really growing on me. The most spread ones are definately Ashish's platforms for Topshop. They were sold out immediately and are offered for atomic prices at ebay now. Though I've to admit that I prefer the bigger patterns like Maria's or Erin Wasson's shoes. I guess leopard prints will never get out of fashion...
Well have to get back to learning biology and maths now. Posting was just a little break to take breath. Lucky me there's only one week of school left.
P.S. Thanks for the great feedback on my interview. More blogger features are already in progress.
