Getting to know Kimberly Higgins
Some of you may know the beautiful Kimberly Higgins as the fashionista who loves to save and thrift shops. She graces us with her style on our news feeds and invokes inspiration to many who follow her.
Today I am collaborating with Kimberly in a campaign called Bridging the Gap. Two fashionistas from two different eras come together and get to know each other. I decided to interview Kimberly by asking 10 questions about herself.
Questions for Kimberly

2. Me: Have you always been interested in fashion?
Kimberly: I have. My mom was really into fashion and was always well dressed. I think I loved fashion from an early age because of her.
3. Me: Where you fashionable 10 years ago?

9. Me: Choose an era to live a life of fashion in, which era would you dress up in?
Kimberly: 1950’s Love the fully billowy skirts with the more defined waistlines. Love the pencil skirts and swing skirts. More hats were worn then.
10. Me: What was your go to fashion item 10 years ago, what is your go to fashion item now?
Kimberly: Pearls and probably pearls now. Back then, I can go with about anything. A dressy dress or a simple tee.
After this short interview with Kimberly, I’ve learned that we have some similarities like Audrey Hepburn and Kate Middleton being our fashion Icon. 10 years ago I was not as fashionable as I am today because I couldn’t afford much however I did buy inexpensive sparkly dresses to go out in. I also loved the 1950’s era for the skirts and hats but I also love the 1920’s era for glamour and their fancy dresses and hats.
All and All it was really fun getting to know Kimberly a little better. She was one of the first fashionistas who followed me and made a huge influence to me in the Instagram fashion world, I am glad I know her.
P.S. Sorry I have been IMA with all my blog post and I apologize for that. I have seriously been wrapped up with a ton of stuff I need to do for my job. Hopefully I will be back into the swing of things soon. Miss you guys!
