Why "Chic Little Poor Girl"?

The name “Chic Little Poor Girl” was inspired by one of my greatest Style Icons – Edie Sedgwick and her film  ‘Poor Little Rich Girl’ by Andy Warhol.

When and why did you start blogging?

I became devoted to design blogs in 2009. By 2010 I was living in Haiti, and craving a creative outlet for my fashion and design inspiration. In 2011 I moved to Los Angeles and Chic Little Poor Girl was born. What ultimately began as an "on the cheap" style blog fueled by the belief that aesthetic, taste and style are not inherently linked to a big price tag, eventually grew into a wonderful, creative lifestyle. Blogging continues to be an incredible outlet. 

Where are you from?

I am from Meridian, Mississippi. But I have a wanderlust for exploring in new places. So far I have experienced Sewanee, Tennessee – Portland, Oregon – Les Cayes, Haiti - Los Angeles, California, and Austin, Texas.

What camera do you use?

I use my father’s old Canon 10D. I have several different lenses but I mainly just shoot with a simple 50mm. The photos on my blog are taken by my boyfriend, Alex, and myself. All my images are edited in Photoshop CS6.

Do you have a “real” job?

I recently made the decision to leave Los Angeles and my job as Program Director for a local Non-Profit, move to Austin, be closer to family/friends and pursue creative projects! Wish me luck!

Who created your blog?

I did! Using squarespace. My old blog was created on the wordpress platform and I also have a tumblr!
