On Monday we gave you a little sneak peak of our newest Blogger BFF. We've been waiting to tell you all about her and the day is finally here. We are so excited to introduce you to Rebecca, creator of The Clothes Horse and our newest featured blogger!
Rebecca describes The Clothes Horse as an artistic personal style blog that showcases her daily outfits as well as anything that inspires her. We've been long time fans of Rebecca and have loved watching her style evolve and transform over the years, all beautifully photographed against the gorgeous Pennsylvania landscapes surrounding her home.
We asked Rebecca a few questions...
What does cute mean to you?
Cute is actually a term I fought against in college, but I've come to accept. I suppose when you're petite, you have a baby face, and a predilection for dresses it's the one thing people will always call you and they usually mean it as a compliment. Cute is fun and sweet—it's an approachable pretty that you want to carry around in your pocket.
What is your most fun fashion moment?
Well I've been to NYFW a couple of times and I've worn some fun outfits there, but recently I was just down by a river near my house in a sequin dress playing with sparklers and a friend and it was just a perfect summer evening. I can't imagine something more fun than that.
How would you describe your style?
Realism meets romanticism; I tend to be inspired by Pre-Raphaelite paintings or buy a new dress and have a visioning of myself wearing it as I stroll along the Seine and then watch the sun set with some handsome stranger and a bottle of wine, but I balance those silly fantasies with reality. Paris is littered with cobblestones and my own life with dirt paths so I'm usually in flats or heels of a reasonable height I can walk miles in—I'm a dreamer with my feet on the ground and I think that's reflected in my wardrobe.
Who is your fashion icon?
I don't have a fashion icon. I admire the way a number of women past and present dress, but I don't want to imitate anyone in my own personal style journey. I hope to take elements from a lot of people (and fictional characters in films and books!) in to a mish-mash all my own.
What is your most guilty pleasure?
Well I don't really believe in guilty pleasures; if I like it why should I be ashamed? But cheesy science fiction shows and movies is a big one—I still rewatch The X-Files.
Thank you Rebecca! We heart you!
