My name is Gaby. I was born and raised in Paris, France. Passionate about fashion, especially shoes, I am the editor of the fashion blog Feminine Bliss. I work in the field of communication and content creation.
How would you describe your style?
I remain convinced that fashion is not just about money, but a matter of taste. I’ve never dressed better than when I was a student and earned $600 a month as a makeup artist. My relatives tend to make fun of me when I wear Chanel shoes with $0.99 sunglasses… “Really Gaby?” But for me, it’s about fashion, I like to mix styles and trends. In a nutshell, I’m very eclectic. I draw from a little bit of everything I see around me. Some icons I admire are Jenna Lyons (Jcrew), Isabel Marant and Miroslava Duma. I love the early 90’s new jack fashion a la Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, you know Will’s jumpers and Doc Martins :). I also love the 50’s classical era by great actresses like Lana Turner.
How do you decide what to wear in the morning? I have two major priorities: elegance and comfort. I like to wear casual clothes while having some presence. I choose my outfits depending on my mood and the weather. Sometimes I buy clothes that I only wear a few months later. It can take me 5 minutes or a whole week to come up with a certain look. First, I decide on the shoes I’m going to wear and select an outfit that compliments them the best. I also try to balance: a tank top is a no no with a mini skirt and a mini short is a no no with a cropped top. In my opinion chic is better than vulgar.
