Fashion Friends // Meet Stephanna

How would you describe your personal style?
I've been told, by others at least, that my style is a mix of hipster and vintage fashion. In my own opinion, I think my style is a combination of those, but also including street style, Parisian fashion, and a touch of bohemian here and there. I do like to jazz it up sometimes. After all, who really has a specific style these days?

Who/What inspires your style?
I take most of my style inspiration from websites like Pinterest. Seeing other people's style and outfit ensembles inspires me to create my own with personal touches.


What is your favorite clothing piece?
I do have a favorite cable knit sweater I purchased from Forever21, but since everyday can't be perfect sweater weather, I usually don't leave my house without a hat or a big purse. (whatever the weather!)
Who is your favorite fashion icon?
I have so many! Narrowing it down, I would have to say Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, & Clemence Poesy.

What inspired you to start a blog?
I've actually wanted to start a blog for a couple years now. I would find fashion blogs and become completely inspired by everyone's individuality, uniqueness, and style. I wanted a way to show the world fashion from my point of view. I wanted to be sure I could handle the responsibility of handling a blog, so I waited, purchased a laptop, did a bit more waiting, then finally created SBcouture.

Tell us three fun facts about you?
I've been a huge fan of superheroes for as long as I can remember! (nerdy, I know)
I'm a vegetarian, or to be more specific, a lacto-vegetarian.
I'm moving to California in about a month or two!
How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for about a month! It's a lot to get used to at first, but I think I'm starting to get into the swing of things. 

What inspires your blog posts?
I have always been a little self-conscious, and I find myself taking more pictures of still life then I do of myself. I like my blog posts to have an air of artistic confidence, wether it's a picture of a succulent plant or a selfie. Art has always inspired my posts on social media in some way.


Who are your favorite fashion bloggers?
I have so many blogs that I admire. The first few blogs I was ever introduced to that I still love to check up on are Cristina Coradona's Trop Rouge and Bonnie Bartons's Flashes of Style.
Where is your favorite place to shoot photos?
Interestingly enough, I don't exactly have a favorite place to shoot. I travel a lot so when I find a brilliant looking spot, I have to stop and take pictures! Usually those areas happen to be city or downtown sceneries. I love the look of a skyscraper or a 4 story brick building.

Why is fashion and personal style important to you?
I have always liked the idea of dressing up (or down), but still looking incredibly fashionable while doing it. Style and fashion is one of the highest forms of art, and art is the best way to express yourself. Since I have never been very talkative and always a little bit shy, fashion is my way of displaying my personality. When I feel like I look my best, I am the most confident. When I dress to display my style, I do it for me, not necessarily to impress or outshine anyone. My personal style is important to me because I feel like I can be myself and let my personality shine!
