April Blogger of the Month – Off of Broadway

For our April Blog of the Month I chose Arkansan blogger Amanda from off of broadway. Her style is fun, eclectic and the perfect mixture of old and new. Be sure to check out her amazing vintage selection on her Etsy store: amandromeda

-What made you decide to start blogging?

i started blogging because i had recently stumbled upon sites like chictopia and lookbook and started reading other style blogs such as calivintage and secondskin style.  i loved all the inspiration i was gleaning from them.  i thought, ‘hey there might be people who could get outfit inspiration from me too!’

– How would you describe your style?
      this is so hard for me to pinpoint.  i think my style is always evolving.  just look through my blog archives!  my style changes as i get older, as i do my hair differently, as i get inspired by others.  the list goes on and on.  but what it all comes down to for me is individuality and creativity.  fashion is quick and easy, style is a reflection of who you are.

– What are some of your favorite blogs?   
      i put those into 2 categories.  there are the ones that are my favorites because i truly love the girls and i want to keep in touch with them like merl (merl kinzie), jessie (style and pepper), yen (my edit), julie (orchid grey), jen (jen loves kev).  and then there are the ones i go back to just for the pretty outfits, like street style blogs.  and tales of endearment just because i want to BE natalie joos 🙂

– You mix a lot of vintage and current pieces, how do you think that helps you better define your style and make it more unique?
      well i own a vintage store so i kinda have to look the part 🙂  but i like how vintage sets you apart from others; you’re not gonna look like everyone else.  but also, you can find so many vintage items that are almost identical to what’s on the runways and in big box stores for waaaaayyyy cheaper.  but yeah, the mix is key.  no one wants to look like a period piece.

– Do you have any advice for people who want to get into blogging or are just starting out?

i’d say just be authentic.  don’t immediately go after sponsors or try to make blogging your career.  just have fun, find your voice, your style.

– What do you find to be unique or different about the Southern fashion scene?
      i think there’s still a sense of demure conservatism in southern women.  not at all in a bad way, but in a more respectful way.  not everything has to be skin tight and see through to be sexy.  am i right?
