Q Can you tell us about your blog and when you started working on it?
Voguish Affair is a Fashion Blog wherein I share my personal style along with styling tips and tricks. I started my blog in August’14, after completing my graduation.
Q What inspired you to start it?
I have been a fashion-enthusiast ever since I was a kid. Dressing-up games never really ended for me. I have never been afraid to take risks when it comes to styling and fashion and wanted to share that with others as well through my own personal style. A blog was the right platform to do that.
Q How would you describe your own personal style?
As rightly said by Yves Saint Laurent: What is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it, I believe being confident in my own skin is how I would describe my personal style. I do experiment a lot with the new trends and fresh silhouette that each season brings in but most important is to be comfortable and confident.
Q What are the challenges you faced when you started blogging?
I always thought it wouldn’t be that difficult to start a fashion blog because I always loved clothes and could pose a little too. But I was wrong! Fashion blogging is a lot of work and being up-to-date with the latest trends is not as easy as it seems. But at the end of the day, it is all worth it as I love dressing up and inspiring others to dress well. After all, the confidence that comes from being well-dressed is immeasurable.
Q Where do you hope to reach through your blog?
The sole purpose of my blog is to inspire people, to make them feel good about themselves and dress-up thoughtfully. I would count my blog’s success with people being inspired by it.
Q Does this hamper your work?
Blogging never affected my work routine. I manage my blog on weekends.
Q How do you balance your professional and personal life?
I use weekends to shoot blog posts as well as to post the pending ones, while utilizing my travel time in framing blog post’s content. Life is all about creating a balance between your responsibilities and your passion.
Q Where do you see your blog in the next five years?
As a believer in the concept of constant learning and continuously challenging myself to improve, I would be working on improving my blog more and more each day. In the next five years I see Voguish Affair being turned into a Fashion Label.
Q What’s the message you would give to people to take up their passion alongside their profession?
It is the heart that is important; one should always stay youthful at heart and never let the flame of passion die.
