Last month we gave you a little sneak peek of our newest BFF blogger. We’re so excited to be featuring Bonnie Barton, creator of Flashes of Style.
Bonnie has been sharing her gorgeous photography, her fashion and beauty inspirations and her awesome vintage inspired style. Bonnie is a new New Yorker so we of course had to have her come to the Fred Flare warehouse for a proper hangout. We took a little walk around the neighborhood and got to ask Bonnie some questions, chatted about our fave local vintage shops and enjoyed the beautiful fall weather.
What does cute mean to you? Cute to me is feeling completely whimsical and beautiful at the same time. I am actually on the constant search for ‘cute’ and so far things that make me feel the cutest are bows in my hair, a cupcake in my hand, and polka dots or flowers on my dress. I aspire to be a connoisseur of cute.
What is your most fun fashion moment? I cannot pin-point an exact moment, but overall I’d say moving to New York City has been my most fun adventure in fashion. Living here has allowed me to be right in the center of all the excitement and has kept me constantly inspired.
How would you describe your style? I would have to say my style is vintage-inspired with a bit of a modern edge. I almost always wear one vintage piece and spice it up with a current trend or bold statement piece.
Who is your fashion icon? My style icon is most definitely Alexa Chung. I love how her looks are always the perfect mix of quirky yet classic. She constantly inspires my wardrobe and reminds me to keep always keep fashion fun.
What is your most guilty pleasure? The television show Gilmore Girls… I still constantly watch it even though it has been off the air for quite a few years now. It’s just too good and I can’t help myself!
We had so much fun hanging out with Bonnie for the day and think she looks perfect in our Shimmering Lace Dancer Dress and BB Dakota Marty Coat. Matched with our Jeffrey Campbell Cosmo Spike Flats and Triple Spike Pendant this sweet fall outfit gets an extra edge.
