Blogger Style | Samantha


"Blogger Style" of the Week goes to Samantha from Essex, United Kingdom. She has a flare for denim and peplum tops, and knows how to rock them well.

If your style had a slogan, what would it be and why? 
Hmm that’s a tough one. I would have to say ‘If I like it, I’ll wear it’ because I dress for me and not to please other people. 

Who or what inspires your style? 
I get most of my inspiration from other bloggers because I feel like I can relate more to their style compared to celebrities. I also get inspiration from Instagram. The other day I was just thinking to myself that I may have a problem. I am addicted to taking screenshots (lol). There are so many stylish people on Instagram and I always find myself saving pictures of looks that I like, using them as inspiration and then recreating the outfits to fit my style. I literally have hundreds of screenshots on my phone (lol).

What are some of your fashion obsessions?  
At the moment it’s coats. I’ve been trying to build up a small collection of statement coats in different styles and colours. 

What item(s) in your wardrobe you cannot live without?
My peplum tops without a doubt and denim shirts. I’ve got quite a small collection of both.

What do you think of plus size fashion compared to 10 years ago? 
I think years ago there was this sort of disconnect between brands and fashion for plus size women. It’s only in the recent years that brands have now come to the realization that plus size women are into fashion too and have started creating stylish clothes for plus size women. There’s a lot more choice and variety nowadays.

Any favourite Bloggers? 
Ooh yeah the list is so long but just to name a few: Soraya of Style is My Thing, Shirley B. Eniang of Shirley's Wardrobe, Fisayo Longe of Mirror Me, Melissa’s Wardrobe, Karla’s Closet and Nadia Aboulhosn.

Why did your start 'Lil' Miss Buttercup'? 
I’ve always been into fashion. It’s something that I’ve always loved and hopefully will have a career in one day but my style hasn’t always been on point. I cringe at some of the outfits I put together lol. I came across Shirley’s (Shirley B Eniang) YouTube channel and her blog and that just opened me up to this whole world of blogging I didn’t know about. I liked the idea of dressing up and putting outfits together so I decided to start my own blog as a fun way to document my style.

Heels or Flats? 
Hmm both. I wish I could wear heels all day long but unfortunately I can’t so I always have a pair of flats in my bag.

What is your favourite lipstick of the moment? 
Red Carpet Red by Charlotte Tilbury. It’s just the perfect red! It’s matte but velvety so it’s not as drying on the lips and that’s what I love about it. 
What is one thing your readers would be surprised to hear about you? 
I am very shy! It might not seem like it since I’m always in front of the camera. I’m always amazed at bloggers who take pictures in the middle of a busy street or in a crowded place like how do they do that?! That’s something I want to work on...being more confident and care free.
