Hey Guys, it’s Austrie! I’ve been chatting with one my favorite fashion/beauty/fitness bloggers, Stevie Henderson (she’s even done some styling for New York Fashion Week!). Talk about Confident, Fearless and Inspiring! She’s got some great advice about upcoming summer trends and fashion faux pas she’s not afraid to break. She’s also shared the links to some of her favorite things and some items on her wish list. So go ahead, fall in love with her style just as I have.
What’s your story? How did you get started with your fashion & beauty blog?
I’ve always loved fashion. I styled hair for a number of shows and designers at New York Fashion Week, was a buyer for a clothing store for many years, and went to school for hair and makeup. My college roommate has a fashion blog that has been very successful (Amber Fillerup, Barefoot Blonde). Seeing her success and the doors it’s opened for her prompted me to do it. I love that it’s a way I can express my fashion and inspire others, as well as the time it gives me at home with my husband. It’s opened doors for us to create a business of our own, we recently attached our own online clothing store to the site! It’s been so fun to be back buying and picking fun things out. I will say none of this could be possible without my sweet husbands support. He takes all my pictures and helps me out with almost everything! If I say, “we” or “us”, I mean my husband and I. I’m the face of the blog, but he does all the behind the scenes stuff.
Do you have any guilty pleasures when it comes to fashion and beauty?
OF COURSE!! Haha. I could spend too much time on you tube watching make up “vloggers”. Kandee Johnson is one of my favorites!
What fashion faux pas do you have no problem breaking?
Black and Brown! Whoever said that wasn’t allowed, I don’t know but it is one of my favorite color combos in fall.
What are some home décor items and furniture pieces you dream of having in your home?
I love anything from Society Social. The colors and patterns she uses are so fun. It’s a little girly to decorate the whole house in.. My husband may not like that but for sure for my office one day!
A cigar couch from Restoration Hardware is a must have for my husband and I though!
What are three words to describe the style of your home?
- Minimalist, we are the opposite of hoarders. We throw too much away if anything gets close to being somewhat cluttered.
- Clean, my husband vacuums every other day and if there is two dishes in the sink and a pair of shoes not put away we feel like our house is a mess.
- Simple, we try and keep our decorations simple and modern, we like the whites with pops of gold and color.
Can you tell us something your followers don’t already know about you?
They probably don’t know my more athletic side. With a fashion blog I don’t share it too much but in high school I was on the swim team, and ran cross-country and track. I did a number of events in track but my main one was pole vault. That’s the one I miss the most! After high school I got more into rock climbing and cycling.
What advice do you have for the upcoming summer fashion and beauty trends?
Blues and Whites are strong colors for Spring and Summer and doubling up on those, wearing all white or all blue. As well as prints. Wearing the same print on top and bottom is very in right now.
Do you ever incorporate favorite fashion items into your home décor?
I notice with prints, yes! I’ll be really into floral or animal prints and try and find new pillows similar them!
I’m all about her fearless sense of style! Isn’t she fun? Make sure to follow her on
