Read on to learn all about Tiphaine's unexpected temper, favorite Christmas activities, and go-to inspirational blogs.
StyledOn: Tell us a little about yourself - how did you first get started in blogging?
Tiphaine Pittet: I'm a 19 year-old design student from Switzerland. Even though I started blogging less than a year ago, I've been passionate about fashion for a long time!
SO: What has been the best experience that blogging has opened up for you so far?
TP: Well, there have been so many already! I guess the most amazing one was the opportunity to attend the Zürich Fashion Days last fall.
SO: When did you first fall in love with fashion?
TP: I can't even remember that! I think that's something I've had in my heart for a long time.
SO: How has your style evolved over time?
TP: I guess it has become more mature and feminine, because of course I have become grown up and more serious you know (I'm still a child inside, though!)
SO: If you could collaborate with anyone on anything, who would it be and why?
TP: I would love to work withs ome high fashion brands like Alexander McQueen, or some great magazines like Vogue or Elle because they have been my greatest inspiration for a very long time.
SO: Tell us something about yourself we may not expect!
TP: I can quickly get really mad or super happy and may overreact when something goes wrong (or on the contrary, really great!) I consider myself rather moody and passionate. My boyfriend could tell you, he has to deal with me and my temper everyday!
SO: We're currently loving your blog! Which blogs are on your daily must-read list?
TP: Well, thank you! In my bookmark there is: The Blonde Salad, Anouska Proetta Brandon, Kayture, Cupcakes and Cashmere, and Annawii to name just a few. I actually read a lot of blogs - I think they're such a great source for inspiration.
SO: What are the three 'must-haves' you think everyone should have in their closets?
TP: A pair of fancy heels, a warm yet very fashionable coat, and a timeless handbag.
SO: What are your favorite holiday recipes and/or traditions?
TP: Since Christmas is my favorite holidaday, I guess I'd say pretty much everything that is related to it. I mean, walks under the snow, hot chocolate, Christmas gift shopping, watching Christmas movies, decorating the house...I guess you see my point!
