Blogger Profile - Steffy's Pro's and Con's

While I am off to Finland, enjoying the midnight sun, visiting old friends and celebrating the wedding of my dear friends H. and M., Steffy of Steffy's Pro's and Con's has agreed to be a lovely guest on my blog today. I have been a happy reader of her vintage-inspired style blog  for quite some time. She wears those amazing thrift finds and also sells the clothes in her own online shop! I was happy to have her answer some questions for my readers. So, if you haven't done so already, go check her out now!

Blogger Facts
Name - Steffy of Steffys Pros and Cons
Age - 23 (24 on Jul 13!)
Location - Miami, FL

What’s the story behind your blog name? 
I started my blog as a personal blog to try to recover from a breakup many years ago, and I would record the pros and cons of every day to find the positives in the situation. Now I just think it is cute and kind of original… the personal posts have since been removed :)

Why do you blog? 
I blog because it is a creative outlook for me, and it leads me to many other people who have the same interests as I do. I also like to record my life, I have journaled and taken pictures since I was 11.

How long have you been blogging? 
I have had some sort of online space for years. I used to have a livejournal, then I began my blog on blogger back in 2008/09. It turned into a fashion blog in February of 2011.

What has changed for you since you started your blog? 
The biggest change is my outlook on the blog itself. I used to think that I had to post every single day and comment on every single blog every day, it was stressing me out. Now I just do it when I want to and I try to find a happier balance so I can enjoy my real life also.

Do you have any goals or dreams you want to reach through your blog? 
I obviously want to be recognized for my personal style and I also want to continue to grow my store. My dream is to one day open a real vintage shop down the road. In the meantime I would love to become a stylist/merchandiser for a prominent company.

Do you have any go-to accessories?
I am obsessed with my new blue bag from francesca’s collections. I wear it almost every day. I also have vintage sunnies I wear with everything.

Do you have a favorite trend for the summer?
This summer I am trying to dress to stay cool. It is already 95 degrees every day in fla so I turn to shorts and light weight tops.

How does your beauty routine look like in the morning?
Hm, I don’t do too much. I usually fix my hair up a bit (straighten the bottom and curl the top part) and I add some blush and lipstick and voila!

Do you have any vintage /thrift shopping tips?
I say just go into it knowing what you want, and with a color/pattern in mind.

Your message to girls that want to start a personal style blog
Put out content that really expresses who you are, try to only post photos that are of good quality and only post MEANINGFUL information. My biggest pet peeve is when people post 30 times a day. Every post should be well thought out and special. 

Happy 4th of July - Happy American Independence Day!!
