Meghan Ross: The Picture Perfect Style Blogger
One look at Meghan Ross’ Instagram feed or blog, "Your Darling Style," and you will immediately agree...she is the perfect style blogger. With her cohesive social media aesthetic and adorable yet informative website, there was no doubt in my mind that I needed to interview her as my blogger of the week. I met Ross five years ago because she was playing one of the characters in a musical adaptation of one of the children’s books that I wrote: Peace, Love, and Cupcakes. Back then, I knew that she had an incredible singing voice but I was completely unaware that she would eventually become one of my style inspirations. Check out our interview below and you, too, will be inspired.
When and why did you decide to start Your Darling Style?
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.
How would you describe your personal style?
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.
What message are your trying to convey on your website?
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.
What is a style staple or a current trend that you think people should embrace?
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 and 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?
What is your number one beauty product recommendation?
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!
Any future plans for your blog?
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!
