Confessions of a lifestyle blogger
We meet Julie, a 28-year-old from Antibes and a project manager in the pharmaceutical industry who, in her spare time, takes photos she posts on Instagram, writes articles for her blog and shares glimpses into her life on social media with her community of almost 80k subscribers
Julie became interested in fashion at an early age, flicking through her mom and sister’s magazines for inspiration. She then discovered blogs, before moving on to photo-sharing social networks like Pinterest and Instagram. At the time, she was unemployed with plenty of time to fill, so she set up her own Instagram account and began following some profiles. The Instagram concept was pretty straightforward: getting inspiration from others, but also sharing her own discoveries!
It was a natural progression for her to embark on an adventure of her own, publishing several images of her looks before creating her blog in late 2015, which allowed her to reach a wider audience. Today, her blog is brimming with fashion and home ideas, but also articles on lifestyle, recipes, restaurant recommendations and photos of her recent travels.
Julie tries to be sensible when shopping. She prefers to rely on quality basics, but often breaks this rule and succumbs to more on-trend pieces. We like her minimalist yet modern style that she accessorizes delicately with jewelry and a well-chosen pair of shoes. From lace-up sandals to studded mules and colorful sneakers, she varies her looks without ever losing the chic that’s key to her outfits.
It’s worth adding that Julie loves shoes and isn’t afraid to show it. But she doesn't consider herself a shoe addict (although her boyfriend Théo disagrees). She says she’s simply accepted the fact that she has a lot of shoes. One day, when she counted them, she realized her collection added up to over 50 pairs... So what?! Indeed, she still caves in and buys new ones when a new season begins, though she tries not to have too many similar pairs.
In short, Julie is a breath of fresh air, making us want to replicate her smile and live life to the fullest! And this attitude is also what Vanessa Wu shoes are all about!
