Special thanks to my friends over at Edge Magazine for spotlighting me as one of the "Edge Elite" features on their site. Here's a snippet of my interview, done by mt good friend and former BET coworker Kori Fields. When I first started my blog in July 2009, I highlighted these really cool scarf necklaces Kori used to make. She's amazing. anyway, here's part of the interview...
What keeps her on The FASHION Edge… I’m always on the lookout for new and exciting things. I’m very much into trends but I always come back to tried and true classics that make me look and feel good. I also don’t underestimate the power of old stuff i.e vintage. Fashion is so cyclical, everything comes back around.
Christina on her FAV upcoming blogs to watch…I absolutely love scouting for new blogs. It’s my favorite activity. One blog I adore is TheMoptopMaven.com – she gives such great advice and hair/makeup tips, I’m addicted! I also admire Karen Blanchard’s style, from WhereDidUGetThat.com and even though I’m not a men’s style guru, I adore StreetEtiquette.com. They make everything look so next level and fly!
Her advice on starting your own blog… I get asked this question all the time. I would say, start off on a blog platform you feel comfy with. Some absolutely love WordPress, I’m personally a Blogger kind of gal. Once you’ve got that down – go for it! Speak from your heart, be genuine and be active in the blogosphere, and the people will surely come. As long as you make it personal and you exhibit passion, it’s inevitable that people will take notice.
