We fell in love with Filio Metsi of All You Need Is Style with her first StyledOn post and have been hooked on her blog ever since! Filio's life is like a dream come true; living in Greece as a fashion editor, running her own store, and flying off to exotic vacation spots. We caught her inbetween takes to find out what makes her tick and what she gave up to become what she is today. Read on to find out more about this blonde bombshell's flirty style and why we chose her as our latest Blog Love!
StyledOn: Tell us a little about yourself-how did you get into blogging?
Filio Metsi: A bit about myself? Well I currently have my nails painted with "Polish me happy" green, I can't seem to be blonde enough, and I'm still waiting for calorie-free Nutella to be discovered (Editor's Note: aren't we all?). Blogging came to me easily, it was the natural step after having all my friends ask me where I shop and advice on how to style their clothes. It began more as an online inspiration bloard, where I posted photos I liked, but then my friends urged me to show my wardrobe, and here we are!
SO: What's your favorite part of your job as a fashion editor?
FM: Being a Fashion Editor is what I gave up Biology for, so I try to have as much fun as I can with it. I just LOVE to style all the merchandise we have in the boutique. Putting together newsletters and the online magazine is the perfect way to introduce new trends and fresh ways to wear the things you already have in your closet, as well as to get through to a wide audience of different ages, body types, and aesthetics.
SO: When did you first fall in love with fashion?
FM: I don't know how this happens, but it seems that style must be in a little girl's DNA, a love for fashion gene. My mom told me we used to argue about which (pastel pink) sandals she should buy me (I couldn't yet walk but wanted the ones with open toes). I guess it's something that finds or chooses you, not the other way around.
SO: Any style secrets you'd like to share?
FM: Hmm, my style secrets...Always put the spotlight on just one part of your body, for example, either the legs or the back. For instance, I always try to wear something slouchy on top paired with cut-offs or a really tight skirt paired with a basic, loose tee Works every time.
SO: If you could collaborate with anyone on a project, who and what would it be?
FM: I would absolutely kill to collaborate with Miroslava Duma on, well, anything, but why not a Russion Retrospective of Haute Couture gowns. Oh my.
SO: What is the most treasured item in your closet?
FM: My gold snake bracelet and my strawberry Chanel 2.55.
SO: What most inspires you?
FM: My mom has always been a true inspiration in all the ways possible and I tend to rejuvenate my mind with all the beauty I come across when I travel.
SO: We're currently loving your blog! Which blogs do you read the most?
FM: Thank you! My online everyday routine consists of a bit of WhoWhatWear, StreetFSN, StyledOn, and The Coveteur to get my fashion pulse going!
SO: If you could go anywhere, where would it be?
FM: I love to travel and there are so many places I long to visit, but for now I would say somewhere exotic and virgin like the Phi Phi Islands in Thailand. You're welcome to join!
