ONE GIRL'S ADVENTURES IN FASHION, FOOD, BEAUTY and BEYOND
Carrie: Meghan! I am so excited that I’m able to interview you. I have been loving your blog posts lately. Your Valentine’s Day outfit ideas were super creative. When did you decide to start Your Darling Style and why?
Meghan: I launched Your Darling Style in early October of 2016. I was supposed to audition for a huge show that day but was injured and could not attend. I have always loved fashion and was passionate about beauty and lifestyle. I had been thinking about starting a blog for a while and decided to just sit down and do it. I spent that entire night brainstorming and creating YDS. In just a few months, YDS grew quickly and escalated from a hobby into a part-time business.
Carrie: That’s incredible! And I always knew that you had great taste in fashion, even back in 2010 when I first met you! How would you describe your personal style?
Meghan: I like to incorporate a classic, unique, darling-esque style, which is affordable and on-trend, with a sparkle of luxury in-between. My biggest splurge is anything Gucci.
Carrie: Oooh, I love Gucci! Besides displaying gorgeous clothing and giving great style advice to your blog’s readers, what message are your trying to convey on your website?
Meghan: There are a few different messages that I am trying to convey to my subscribers. I hope to inspire my followers to own who they are and feel confident. I also want to inspire them to attain their own creative style while pursuing their dreams (and I know this since I’m constantly following mine as a performer). I also just recently launched a weekly series on my Instagram story called "Meghan Moments,” which is going to include small personal stories that vary from dating advice to encounters with strangers, as well as other positive tips and advice.
Carrie: I’ll definitely look out for that! Maybe you could give my subscribers some advice now? I would love to know your fave style staple or a current trend that people should embrace.
Meghan: Accessories are my staple pieces. I would have to say that 85% of my closet consists of jackets & handbags. Right now, I am embracing the big & fuzzy teddy/sherpa coat with my Gucci belt/Marmont bag. I love that these coats are a huge hit this season! I literally had to build a closet just for coats...can you sense the obsession?
Carrie: Yep...and I’m so jealous of your coat closet. Now, when it comes to beauty, do you have a favorite beauty product that you can recommend?
Meghan: My number one beauty product would be Too Faced mascara. This product is my number one go-to. Your eyes tell a story and with this mascara, you will notice your eyes pop in photos! Sometimes, there are days when we just don't have the energy to put all of our makeup on and with a little dash of this mascara, no one will ever know!
Carrie: Thanks for sharing your beauty secret with me! Lastly, do you have any future plans for your blog?
Meghan: YDS will be launching a YouTube/beauty channel this spring! I am currently working on creating tutorials, hauls, and more. I constantly get asked for hair tutorials and my everyday makeup looks, so I look forward to sharing them with the world!
Carrie: I can’t wait to see the videos! Where can readers find you on social media?
Meghan: You subscribe to daily/weekly updates from Your Darling Style at www.yourdarlingstyle.com and follow my Instagram, which is @yourdarlingstyle. Stay tuned to find out about my YouTube channel launching soon!
Carrie: I definitely will! Thanks again for talking with me, Meghan!
