Q: What made you become a style blogger ?
Coco : Ever since the good old MySpace days, I’ve always had this fascination with the idea of creating my own beautiful corner of the internet. I’m completely self-taught when it comes to web development, and I feel like my blog is a testament to my true aesthetic — not just by way of my personal style, but also my hope to create a beautiful web experience for my readers as well. To me, my blog is more than a fashion blog, it’s a lifestyle brand. While showcasing my personal style is the primary message of Millennielle.com, I’m always exploring new verticals to expand on, like travel, beauty, health… anything that encapsulates what the modern millennial experience is.
Q: What advice do you have for someone who wants to start a blog ?
Coco : Like all things in life, putting together a plan and purpose is the key to being successful at what you do. Of course, the way one person defines success is different from the way the next person does… so define what success looks like to you, and go after it!
Q: What are some good cameras for blogging ?
Coco : I love the Canon 5DIII with a 50mm lens. The 6D is pretty awesome as well
Q: What/Who inspires your style ?
Coco : I’ve always been a city girl, so people-watching and street style scoping is a major source of inspiration for me. I love seeing women who can pull off unique pieces, and still make it work… like Glazer’s character on Broad City — I’m so obsessed with how unconventional and fantastic her style is!
Q: How would you describe your style ?
Coco : In 3 words: Timeless, Alluring, Classic
Q: Any goals for 2016 ?
Coco : Just to keep building, really… I’m open to wherever this journey takes me!
