chai, cinnamon & couture//

i have recently interviewed the lovely Chantelle of chai, cinnamon & couture, her blog contains compilations of pretty pictures, favorite fashion editorials, street style from around the world and occasionally an ad campaign or runway looks.

Favorite book?
Anything and everything by Jane Austen, especially Pride & Prejudice.
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is another favourite of mine :) I love reading, books always make me happy!

Top five favorite songs?
My favourite songs are changing constantly, although I love songs from Owl City, Lady Gaga, Ladyhawke, The Plasticines, Lily Allen, Regina Spektor, Imogen Heap and Lisa Mitchell has a lovely voice too!

Favorite meal to cook?
I love cooking but I'm a total beginner! I really should do it more often, although the only thing I know how to make is bolognese. . . oh and cupcakes!

What's currently on your wish list?
The entire Miu Miu Summer 2010 collection, some sleep and a break from school!

What is your favorite fashion trend at the moment?
I don't tend to follow trends, although I adore the nautical look; i'm obsessed with navy & white stripes teamed with red :) Also, I simply adore the cute socks & heels trend, it's so sweet :)
What's your most treasured piece of clothing?
My red satin boxer shorts that have a black cat print on them; very miu miu-esque! I made them in sewing class and they were my first piece of clothing I've ever made so I love, love, love them :)

What fashion designers do you like?
Lee 'Alexander' McQueen: A true inspiration, with undeniably incredible talent! His work reflected how fashion is art.
Jean Paul Gaultier: He's French and he loves cats and corsets, he's also very cute in his interviews and he makes beautiful clothing!
John Galliano: Because his hair is longer than mine! Only joking! He's daring, crazy & truly incredible!
Karl Lagerfeld: Oh, I wish to have half his knowledge one day!
Miuccia Prada: The superwoman behind Miu Miu and Prada, she is super fantastic!
Yves Saint Laurent was a wonderful fashion designer, who I'll worship 'til the day I die!

How would you describe your style?
I tend to dress minimalistically and quite femininely :) I usually wear a statement piece some jewellery and a majority of the time I'll be wearing a pair of pretty but uncomfy shoes!

What inspires you?
Amazing people and places! I am always being inspired by the wonderful world of blogging! And I can always pick up inspiration from everywhere I go!

Where else can we find you?
I am so addicted to tumblr at the moment []

What's your dream for the future?
I dream of being best friends with Karl Lagerfeld! I want a unicorn and a house full of Miu Miu and sparkly things :) I guess I just want to be happy... But then again, don't we all?!

Thank you so much Chantelle :)
