Karencyan may blog from across the sea, but she has an international appeal that would blend into the city of her dreams perfectly. Her StyledOn posts have shown off some of her DIY favorites along with her varied and spunky style. We sat down and got inside her head to see what inspires her and what she can't live without. Read on to get to know more about Karencyan and gather some inspiration from abroad...
StyledOn: Tell us a little about yourself - how did you get into blogging?
Karencyan: My name is Karencyan, a fashion design student and fashion blogger from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I am obsessed with everything in fashion and loved to discover bloggers and fashion sites. I realized I would love to share my own inspiration and thoughts about fashion, along with some of my DIY ideas, to everyone around the world. I've had my blog since 2009.
SO: How has your style evolved with your blog?
KC: I usually share my daily outfits in my blog - a little bit of grunge rock sometimes mixed with vintage granny pieces...that's my favorite style.
SO: We love that you're from Malaysia! Can you see yourself staying there?
KC: I love traveling so much, I'm eager to go to every lovely place in the world. However, I do love staying in my own country, enjoy spending time with my family, and I love the food here - tropical fruit, spicy soup, and nasi lemak etc. You have to give this awesome food a shot, too!
SO: When did you first fall in love with fashion?
KC: I've had a passion for fashion since I was a kiddo. I loved to dress myself (and my sister!) up in front of the mirror or make accessories for my barbie dolls. I loved to flip through fashion magazines instead of reading fairytale storybooks before I went off to bed.
SO: Any style secrets you'd like to share?
KC: You can't go wrong with a pair of jeans. Everything goes with jeans, a white tee and tweed blazer or a pair of sneakers. Don't be a label slave - always try something new, fashion is fun!
SO: If you could collaborate with anyone on a project, who and what would it be?
KC: I'd like to collaborate with Tavi Genvinson of Style Rookie. Maybe a DIY project (she does well with DIY). She's a talented blogger and I get so much inspiration from her projects.
SO: What is the most treasured item in your closet?
KC: That would be my favorite ripped jean shorts - I can't imagine what I'd do without them, I put them on a couple times a week!
SO: Where do you find the most inspiration?
KC: I love stumbling upon different fashion websites such as Lookbook, Tumblr, Chictopia, and Pinterest to find inspiration about trending tips, hair styling, and DIY ideas. I also enjoy reading some of my favorite fashion blogs as well.
SO: If you could go anywhere - where would you want to go?
KC: New York! New York lifestyle always mesmerizes me. I dream about the nighlife and truly fun experience.
Are you loving Karencyan's style as much as we are?
