Fab Collab: Meet Piniel

February 7, 2014

Hello, friends!  I am very excited to announce that today’s post is a collaboration with fellow blogger Piniel of Pins Place!  Piniel contacted me recently asking if I was interested in working together and I was like, “Heck yes!  That girl is stylish and super cool!”  Of course, my reply was (only slightly) more professional.  ;)


Piniel is a personal style blogger who shares outfits, nail art, awesome Polyvore collages (seriously some of my favorite fashion inspiration) and so many more fun fashion-related posts!  I also interviewed Piniel about her blog and her personal style, here are her responses:

1. Pin’s Place is your personal style blog, how did it get started?
It was right out of college, I wanted to do something creative, personal and something that helped me grow. 
2. You have such great personal style, especially because it is so uniquely you.  How would you describe it?
Thank you, that’s so sweet. I don’t really know how to describe it, I’m drawn to loose silhouettes and clothes that you can move in. Comfort is a big deal and finding that balance between being stylistically aware and still comfortable is where I live. 
3. Where do you find most of your fashion inspiration?
I find inspiration in a lot of things. The obvious ones are fashion magazines and Pinterest. I’m also a huge movie/tv buff, I’m drawn to the emotions behind different characters fashion choices. 
4. What drives you to keep blogging?  What do you like most about being a personal style blogger?
It’s such a great (sometimes frustrating) creative process, and I always end up getting something out of it. Being a personal style blogger allows me to be aware of trends and interpret them in a way that makes sense in my every day life. 
5. Okay, enough about blogging, what else do you like to do in your free time?
I like watching shows like Scandal and Chicago Fire (my most recent favorites) and reading about blogging and fashion (sounds boring but I really do like learning more about the industry).

I have been a long-time follower of Pins Place because Piniel always shares such great fashion inspiration.  I love the fact that her style is so accessible, and you get the feeling from reading her blog that she is just a really cool, down-to-Earth, stylish gal.  I highly recommend checking out her blog – Pins Place – if you haven’t already!

Piniel also interviewed me; to see my answers check out her post here.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this peek at one of my personal favorite style bloggers and, as always, thanks for reading!  :), Kristi
