I created this website so I could document my wears and my opinions.
Variety is the spice of life as they say – so its always exciting for me to have a guest blogger. Why? They share heart warming stories that leave you feeling like you have known them for ages.
With that I would like to introduce you to Chrissy – a woman who marches to her own beat and rocks platinum hair reminiscent of EVE way back in the Ruff Ryders days.
Who are you? Chrissy Z
Age? Twenty Something
Location? Sydney, Australia
What is your favourite hairstyle? Being a hairdresser it’s easy to change my hairstyles whenever I want, but my absolute favourite was my short blonde natural hair. I got to play with creating different shapes and tones. It was a lot of fun.
How would you describe your personal style? I hate conforming to a specific style because I’m always open to stepping out of my comfort zone and switching up my looks. I have so many different pieces in my wardrobe and I love mixing and matching different pieces to create unique outfits with some of the same pieces. I can’t say that I choose to adopt a specific versatile style, because I’m naturally attracted to various looks and concepts.
What is your go to fashion outfit? A classic pair of jeans paired with a statement top, and a pair of ankle boots or sneakers. Being a mum on the go I need to be comfortable.
What are your must have items in your wardrobe? I need my black staples, such as black jeans, black dress, black pants. These items are always a perfect starting point to any outfit.
What inspires your style? I grew up in East London where people are very expressive with their clothes and individuals who are daring and creative have always inspired me. Also, growing up, the women in my family have always had fun with their style. Anything that is not my norm has always intrigued me, so I find myself purchasing international fashion magazines and following bloggers from countries I have no connection to.
5 things about you that the world should know about you?
- I love learning new cultures and languages;
- Before I was a hairdresser I was an accountant;
- I love to cook! If I had to quit hairdressing my next career would be a Chef;
- I am an adrenaline junkie, bungee jumping, sky diving – you name, it I will do it!
- I love reading Shona novels.
What is your relationship Iike with your body? Growing up I was always comfortable with my body, absolutely loved it. After having my daughter I had to fall in love with body all over again. I was a size 6 before and I became a size 16 after. I didn’t want to be that size as I felt really unhealthy. I worked hard to get down to my size now which is a 10. I struggled and it took me a while to get to a place where I can say my body changed because of this precious little human it created. How can you absolutely hate your body for doing something so magical that gifted you with a beautiful child. Also, having a daughter has made me very careful as to how I speak about my body in front of her because I don’t want her to feel insecure about her body from watching me not loving my own.
Do you like your body? Every stretch mark, every weird toe, my saggy boobs, MY imperfect body – I love every inch of it.
If anything what would you change about your body? The only thing I want to change about my body is to be fitter and stronger.
What is your guilty pleasure? Chocolate anything! I have a major sweet tooth!
Special thanks to Chrissy for giving us an insight to her life. When we were talking about this blog post she said that she had never featured on a website. She did a fantastic job of staying true to herself and sharing the real real.
