Why did you decide to start a style blog?
I originally thought about writing a book on how to dress well on a budget with shopping guides. Then I started following other fashion bloggers and realized a blog was the perfect way to share my daily outfits! Laura Lily was born March 2012.
Is blogging your full-time job?
Yes! I left my finance job in April 2017 to pursue my blog full-time and it is a dream come true! It took 5 years for me to get my blog up and running to be able to go full-time. I am sharing the highs and lows of working for myself on my “Real Talk” YouTube series.
Who are your favorite designers and stores?
Express, Nordstrom, and Asos are my favorite retailers to shop.
Any style icons?
Kate Middleton- she is just such a classy, well-dressed lady. Blake Lively is my favorite celebrity style icon. She knows her body and how to be sexy without overdoing it.
What is your favorite part about fashion blogging?
The ability to express my creativity through photos and videos. I get such a rush while brainstorming new ideas and watching them come to life! I also love meeting incredible people who inspire me to challenge myself to be a better business owner and creative. Over the years a few of these people have become some of my closest friends. I now cannot visualize my life without them in it.
What are you looking forward to next?
Growing my brand to include larger collaborations and product lines with brands that I love while continuing to grow as a digital influencer. I also want to travel internationally a lot more to experience new cultures and places.
What is your background?
Born and raised in Minnesota, moved to Los Angeles when I was a senior in high school, graduated from UCLA and have lived in LA ever since. I am half Persian and half Swedish.
What are some unique things your readers might like to know?
I have a horse, an Arabian named Zcinny (Zin-knee) and I have had him for 15 years. He is a darling. I love to sing, howevere I am too shy to sing in public. It takes a few drinks at a karaoke bar where no one knows me before I can really let loose.
What kind of camera do you use?
My personal camera is a Canon 5D Mark II with an 85mm 1.8 lens. My photographers use a Canon 5D Mark III with a variety of lens (normally 50mm 1.8 lens.) I edit my photos using Camera Raw, Photoshop and various iphone apps (Facetune and Instagram.)
