Happy April, Locals!
Aren't we glad it's finally
Springtime?! Here in California, it's a fun mixture of lots of sun and lots of rain, and as a result we're given a plethora of blooming roses, lilies, and bold fashion statements!
In the midst of all of the fashion bloggers that flood your Instagram feed with bright colors and a great matching of florals, you might want to keep an eye for local fashionista, Kiarre McGee! Born and raised in Bakersfield, 23-year-old, Kiarre McGee possesses an intermingling of confidence, self-awareness, and a fashion sense sent from the heavens!
(TLA): You’re so versatile with your looks! How would you describe your style?
(KM): Well, thank you. Honestly, that's what I love so much about fashion[:] you can style it how you want. I love being versatile with my looks; it's one of my forms of being artistic and expressive. [However], I would describe my core style as classy, earthy, and whimsical.
(TLA): What are your go-to spots when it comes to picking out an outfit?
(KM): Sadly, the places I love most are a bit too pricey for me. But my perception is this; I can pretty much find a good outfit to put together in any store. But if I were to say my go to's at the moment, it would actually be 3 very common places: Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, and Target!
(TLA): There are a lot of fashion bloggers out there; how do you make yourself stand out amongst the community?
(KM): There are definitely many, but I simply stand out[!] By confidently being myself, and sharing my authentic style, [I] at the same time shin[e] light, encourag[e], and motivat[e] others.
(TLA): Who are some of your favorite bloggers?
(KM): My favorite bloggers would have to be @songofstyle, @iamgalla, and @vivaluxuryblog! [T]hey take their fashion blogging so seriously, and it shows. They present high quality photos, and their sense of style is superb. They are very consistent with great content, and looks. [I] literally [am] so inspired by them as fashion bloggers!!
(TLA): What has been your greatest achievement?
(KM): I'd have to say my relationship with Christ; being saved. My faith is a big part of my blog as well!
(TLA): Would you rather?
Collect shoes or Collect Purses?
(KM): Hmmmm this is a hard one. I'm not really a shoe person, but I do have quite a few. I do love purses, but I don't have many. So this may sound a bit contradictory, but probably purses/bags/backpacks of course the cute, expensive, stylish ones.
Instagram or Facebook?
(KM):Instagram all the way[!] No questions asked!
Always have curly hair or Always have straight hair?
(KM):I would say always have curly hair, because that is the natural texture of my hair, and I love my hair, although I switch it up often. And curly hair is so diverse[;] you can do a lot of different styles with it. So I'd say curly!
(TLA): What advice could you give to aspiring style bloggers?
(KM): I would say don't be afraid to share your style, and put yourself out there. You won't know the outcome if you don't try. So start! Put your best look together, and set up a photoshoot with a good photographer and get it going! Also, be consistent. The more you post, the more people will become familiar with your blog. [I]f they are coming to your blog because you say you're a fashion blogger, then chances are that's what they are going to want to see. [S]o be as consistent as you can. Lastly, don't try to copy others. [I]nspiration is great, but be you! And rock your style confidently!
