What is your occupation? If you are attending school and do not work, what is your
major? During the day, I work in TV promotions in NYC. At night, I blog!
Where is your hometown located and what do you love about it?
I live on Long Island, just under an hour outside of NYC. I love the location because of the small town feel, but the ability to go into the big city for work or play.
List any hobbies/talents you possess.
During the summer, I love spending all of my free time at the beach. During the winter, I am an avid hockey fan - I LOVE the New York Rangers.
How would you define your personal style?
My personal style recipe is one part classic, one part trendy, with a pop of color. I love to pair items that others may not think to wear together. I love to color block, mix patterns and textures, etc.
Tell me a little bit about your blog (e.g. name, genre, etc.)
I write a personal style blog, Michelle’s Pa(i)ge - a pun on my own name, Michelle Paige :)
How did start blogging and how long have you been a blogger?
I began blogging only about 6 months ago. I spend so much time commuting to and from NYC each day; this became a creative outlet, a way to spend my train time, & a place to share my style & personal styling tips with others.
How do you find inspiration for your blog?
I find inspiration everywhere. From the streets of NYC, to magazines, to celebrities to other bloggers. There are outfit ideas all over.
What do you ultimately hope to accomplish through blogging?
Everyone has to get dressed in the morning. My goal is to make it a little more fun for people. I get inspired daily by fashion bloggers that I follow & I hope to inspire others with my own style posts.
What is your favorite fall fashion staple?
This season it’s felt hats & booties. Rag & Bone makes great options of both, but if you don’t have that type of budget, Forever 21 is my favorite for hats & Sam Edelman has great booties!
Apple Cider or Hot Cocoa?
Hot Cocoa! - with marshmallows & hot chocolate :)
How do like to style plaid?
I love that plaid is a trend this season that can literally be worn by everyone. You can do a little, with a scarf or a shoe, or a lot, with a dress or coat. Plaid comes in so many color patterns & looks great paired with just about everything; I can’t get enough!
How do you celebrate fall (e.g. pumpkin carving, visiting the pumpkin patch, etc.)
Since the weather gets colder during this time and I spend more time indoors, the amount of baking that I do increases. There’s nothing better than the sweet smell of baked goods in a kitchen. My favorite fall recipes are apple crumb & pumpkin butter bars!
