Today I interviewed one of my favorite bloggers: Lisanne Beute from Fashionable and Me! I'm following her blog for a pretty long time and she has always been in my top-3 of my favorite bloggers. I was honoured to interview her and this is probably one of my best interviews.
How do we recognize you and your style?
My style is girly and elegant with a fashionable touch. That touch can be everything, mostly it is something that people don't expect like a leather piece or something boyish. I love special items, things that not everyone wears. I also like pieces with a pattern.
Do you get inspired by people on the street? If yes, where do you think is the best streetsyle?
Yes, I get inspired by people on the street. I think Amsterdam is the best place to be in the Netherlands, but last summer I spend in Denmark and there we went to Copenhagen. That was really amazing, that people are sooo well dressed. Copenhagen is definitely my number one.
Do you like the catwalkstyle or do you prefer streetstyle?
I like a combination of both. I love watching catwalk shows, the pieces they show on the catwalk really inspire me. I like the tought behind the pieces. But, I also love streetstyle, because that are real people, who wear their own combinations. I love sitting on a terrace in the summer and watching people.
How do you combine your clothes?
I always try to combine my clothes in a different way.Actually, I never wear the same combination. Sometimes, when I'm really busy, It's hard, but I just don't like wearing the same combination twice.
What is the coolest thing you've ever done?
Hm, that's a hard question! If I look to the things that I did because I have a blog, it's definitely the Young Talent shoot for the Dutch CosmoGIRL and also Amsterdam Fashion Week was an amazing experience. Futhermore, a really cool thing I did was going to sailingkamps - I did that since I was 8 years old - , because that's always such an nice expirience.
How did you get invited for Fashion week and what was your first reaction?
I opened my mailbox last year July - I think it was July, but maybe it was alreay August - and I saw the email with the invitation, I run to my mom and screamed: 'I'm invited for Amsterdam Fashion Week, aaaaaaah'. I really didn't expected it and It took some days until I realised it. I just got the invitation and I didn't do something special to get it, except blogging ;)
What do you want to reach in your life and with your blog?
In life, I want to do things I love, like blogging, being busy with fashion, spending days with friends and graduate at high school next year. I have a goal and I want to reach that goal. My goal isn't very specific, but I know that I want to mean something for the fashion industry when I'm older. I want to keep my blog as I hobby. It's a kind of personal diary about my life and outfits. It's great to look back to one year ago and see the changes.
What do you want to reach in the fashionindustry?
I don't now yet what I really want to reach. After my high school I want to go to the Amsterdam Fashion Institute to do the study Fashion&Branding and after that I would like to work at a magazine or work for a brand/label. It's also a dream to start a own company. I would like if someone hears the name ‘Lisanne Beute’ that people say: ‘Ohh, that’s that girl’, haha.
How did you get to be blogger for Cosmogirl?
As I told I had a shoot because I was scouted as Young Talent. After that, they asked me If I wanted to blog for their site and ofcourse I said yes. I really like it!
What things do you enjoy the most about blogging?
Being busy with fashion, styling, photograhy and writing. Blogging is a kind of expressing yourself, finding your own style. I know and learn what I like and what I dislike and I also got much more confidence trough my blog.
11.What are you doing in your free time? Do you also spend your free time with fashion?
I also spend free time with fashion. I like to work on my style book, I like to draw, I like to style outfits and I also love reading fashion magazines. Besides this, I have a job and unfortunately I have to spend quite a lot of time on school.
How do you promote your blog?
Actually, I don't really promote my blog. I'm just blogging. If I have time, I leave reactions on other blogs. The blogs for CosmoGIRL ensure a bit promotion.
Do you have any tips for small blogs who want to be big like me? :)
Just be yourself. Blog things that you like, be enthousiastic and work on your blog with passion. I believe that If you believe this things yourself, other people will see it too. Don't focus to much on 'becoming a big blog' but just have fun in what your are doing!
