Yay! A new Blogger of the moment! I'm thrilled to introduce you to Krystal of This Time Tomorrow. Not only is she incredibly stylish, but she's basically living my dream life. I should move to Reno and steal her identity... or maybe not. Haha! Well, anyway, she just started blogging this spring and has quickly become a style icon in the blogosphere, and for good reason. Head over to This Time Tomorrow, but first, read the interview she did with Delightfully Tacky! Thanks Krystal!
1. What is your favorite part of blogging?
Interesting question, mainly because I'm not particularly crazy about blogging myself. Most days, as I'm sure we've all experienced at some point, I feel rushed or tired or generally not that into it by the time I get my tripod and camera out. I'm much more interested in checking out everyone else's blogs. The idea of a fashion blogging community
is quite inspiring--that a group of style-conscious people can collaborate and share ideas, like an interactive issue of Vogue but much more relatable.
2. What inspired you to start This Time Tomorrow? Any particular bloggers who got you into it?
I originally started This Time Tomorrow earlier this year in April. I was soon to be graduating and with that, I would be leaving my two jobs, one at the school newspaper and the other at a local newspaper in town. Basically, I wanted something to fill my time and keep me accountable, off the couch and out of my style rut of wearing American Apparel v-
necks and jeans.
3. You've said in your blog that you work on a magazine, what do you do exactly?
Ah, the job question. I know I've alluded quite a bit to my job, especially as of late, with our most recent deadline passing just a few days ago. I work at a local style magazine in town called Reno Style, which features stories on local business owners, lifestyle features around the community and yes, fashion editorials. I'm currently the assistant editor, overseeing most of the general production but am also the stylist, which means I style, direct and coordinate our fashion spreads.
4. What is your dream job?
I would love to be Grace Coddington. Creative director here I come.
5. Of all the places in the world, where would you like
to visit or live most?
I would kill to live in Paris. But then again, who wouldn't?
6. What got you interested in style/fashion?
Four words: Clarissa Explains It All. I know. I know. Melissa Joan Hart, whatever happened to her? I remember growing up, coveting everything she wore.
7. You got to go to the Weardrobe Conference in NYC, how was that? What was your favorite part of the trip?
Of course, meeting that many girls that you previously only knew through an online platform, still blows my mind. They were all so sweet, fun, interesting and naturally, stylish. I just loved all the down time we had hanging out in one of the best cities in the world.
8. What inspires you on a daily basis?
Lately I've been good about compiling my inspiration folder, filling it to the brim of torn out photos and editorials from my stack of fashion mags. I'll usually, depending on the mood, flip through it the night before or morning of and find a particular photo that sticks out from the rest.
9. What's your favorite thing about living in Reno?
Reno is one hell of a quirky, weird place. Plus, we're the only state that gets Halloween off because someone back in 1864 decided that it was a good day to create Nevada's statehood.
10. What is your favorite part of the day?
When I watch reruns of Mad Men with my boyfriend.
11. What are some of your daily must-read blogs?
Oh, tough one! I do love daily posts from Jessica of What I Wore, Katy of Kansas Couture and Kelly over at The Glamourai. But of course, sitting in front of a computer for most of the day lends itself well to checking out other blogs. Le Blog de Betty, We Were Damsels, Late Afternoon, Song of Style, Karla's Closet and Delightfully Tacky are among my top picks as well for inspiration.
12. Why do you think people should bother with putting together interesting outfits or caring about what they look like?
I always fall back on this quote from Ms. Coco:
"I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with
destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny."
