Styl, uroda i inteligencja- to brzmi jak nasza babka! Przeprowadzilysmy wywiad z Pina, prawniczka z Kanady a zarazem blogerka, kreatorka bloga Fashion Justice. Pina dzieli sie z nami swoim unikatowym poczuciem stylu, ulubionymi kosmetykami i obserwacjami o byciu blogerka. Mamy nadzieje ze polubicie ja tak samo jak my! 

Ana : How would you describe your style?

Pina: A little Carrie Bradshaw in that I am a chameleon and love to experiment with different looks. I love to dress according to my mood and what my day will require of me. If I have a presentation or a meeting I may be in total lawyer mode (with a Pina twist of course). It all depends but one thing you I will always focus on is proportion I am only 5 1/2 ft tall and I always need to make sure that I don’t get lost in my clothes so I will typically cinch in my waist with a belt. I love corset belts and was wearing them before they became mainstream this year. Heels for me are pretty much non-negotiable. I love to to look polished, whether I am going for a work appropriate look or walking the dog in distressed jeans.
Ana: How does the inside of your wardrobe look like?

Pina: A mix of pencil skirts, distressed jeans, blazers, lots of shoes, belts and accessories. I have a mix of designer finds (Chanel, Hermes, Louboutin) and ultra affordable items such as Forever21, H&M and Zara. I love mixing high-low.
Ana: Whats the top of your shopping list for 2017?

I am actually nor sure as I am waiting for Spring 2017 to hit the retailers before I can wrap my mind around how to style the next hot look (example, ballet trend). I usually shop for new trends at the beginning of the season and then work them in into my wardrobe as the season progresses.
Ana : How did you started your blog?

Pina: I used to get stopped in the street by strangers telling me that they loved my outfit. I realized that I would never wear it again the same way so I thought I should start capturing my outfits in pictures. I also wanted the world to know that being a lawyer doesn’t mean you are drab and boring and I wanted women to realize that you don’t have to sacrifice style for smarts, because my big belief is that you can be smart and stylish, in fact the 2 go hand in hand.
Ana: What’s the best thing about being a fashion blogger?

Pina: Being able to inspire women and young girls. The emails and messages I receive from women thanking me for inspiring them, or telling me that they want to be like me – a stylish lawyer one day – is truly rewarding. Getting recognized is fun because it makes me realize that I am actually reaching people and accomplishing my mission. It’s amazing to actually meet my followers in person (when they recognize me in the city) and I love getting pics with them. I am very grateful for my followers.
Ana: What are the style rules you live by?
Pina: Proportion is key. Never make the clothes wear you – you wear the clothes. Mix high and low brands. Have fun with fashion and never leave the house unless you love your outfit. Own your look and be true to who you are. For example, if you can’t walk in heels, then don’t wear them because you won’t walk gracefully. Stay true to your authentic style self style and always put your best self forward. You are your personal brand.
Ana: Who inspires your style?

Pina; I am my own inspiration and I look to creative ways of building my look. For example, I recently found a left over ribbon from xmas and used it for a choker and a bracelet and it looked great. The other night I went out for a drink with my friends and at the last minute I grabbed my 2 belly dancing sequinned cuffs to complete my look and it looked so money!

I love adding these special touches. It makes my outfits truly unique.
Ana : What’s the one thing you don’t think your readers know about you?

Pina: I am a great life coach and love motivating people (maybe this your could tell from my blog). I am on point with reading situations and people and my friends rely on me for being the voice of reason.

Ana: What’s your beauty regime?

Pina: I love trying different products and brands but for the last year I have been obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury’s products. They are very hydrating and much needed for living in Canada. I use her eye rescue cream as well as her Magic cream as a daily facial moisturizer and her night Magic cream. I also looove her clay mask because it makes my skin glow a la JLo. I have super dark circles and I use Cle de Peau’s miraculous concealer. It’s expensive but it is the best I have ever used.
Ana: Where do you shop?
Pina: I love Zara, H&M and Forever21 for my trendy fun items. I also have a local Toronto designer who sews me up some great stuff. I love a few local Toronto shops such as Mendocino and M Boutique. I find the higher end products wherever I find them…sometimes through resellers and consignment shops.
Ana : Where would you like to travel this year?

Pina: ITALIA! I want to visit the land of my DNA. The italians always look so effortlessly chic. I also want to take a quick trip to Miami. I love the glitz and glam and the architecture. Their coloured buildings look like candy!

Ana: Thank you Pina, you are such an inspiration!

Ana; Jak opisalabys swoj styl?

Pina: Carrie Bradshaw poniewaz jestem jak kameleon i kocham eksperymentowac z roznymi stylami. Ubieram sie w zaleznosci od nastroju i tego co w danym dniu robie. Jesli mam prezentacje lub spotkanie bede wygldac jak prawnik- z dodatkiem Piny oczywiscie. To zalezy ale zawsze zwracam uwage na proporcje poniewaz mam 153 cm wzrostu wiec musze uwazac aby nie utonosc w ciuchach. Zwykle podkreslam talie paskiem. Bardzo sie ciesze, ze w tym roku pasy w stylu gorsetow znow staly sie modne. Obcasy sa dla mnie nieodzowne. Lubie swietnie wygladac niezaleznie od tego czy ide d pracy czy wyprowadzam psa w podziurawionych jeansach.

Ana; Jak wyglada od srodka twoja garderoba?

Pina: To miszanka spodnic olowkowych, marynarek, duza ilosc butow, paski i akcesoria. To mix ciuchow od projektantow (Chanek, Hermes, Louboutin) oraz sieciowek takich jak Forever21, H&M i Zara. Lubie je mieszac ze soba.

Ana: Co zamierzesz kupic w nadchodzacym sezonie?

Pina: Jeszcze nie jestem pewna co kupie na sezon wiosna/lato. Czekam aby w sklepac pojawily sie nowe kolekcje abym mogla zastanwic nad stylizacjami nowych trendow (np. baletowego). Zwykle kupuje nowe rzeczy juz na poczatku sezonu i staram sie je polaczyc z moja dotychczasowa garderoba.

Ana: Jako aspekt bycia blogerka lubisz najbardziej?

Pina: To, ze moge inspirowac kobiety i mlode dziewczyny. To emaile, ktore otrzymuje od kobiet, ktore pisza, ze je zainspirowalam lub od mlodych dziewczyn, ktore chca w przyszlosci byc stylowymi prawniczkami- to jest naprawde wspaniale. Bycie rozpoznawana jest przyjemne ale przede wszyskim pokazuje, ze docieram do moich czytelniczek i spelniam swoja misje. Ogromnie nie zawsze cieszy kiedy spotykam moje czytelniczki (kiedy podchodza do mnie na ulicy) i ciesza mne zdjecia z nimi. Jestem za to ogromnie wdzieczna.

Ana: Twoje zasady stylu?

Pina; Przede wszystkim zachowac proporcje. Nigdy nie pozwolic aby ciuchy mnie nosily- to ja je nosze. Mieszanie tanich i drogich rzeczy. Bawienie sie moda. Mienie swojego styl i bycie soba. Bycie swoja unikalna marka.

Ana: Kim sie inspirujesz?

Pina: Przede wszystkim soba, zawsze staram sie w kreatywny sposob budowac swoj outfit. Na przyklad niedawno uzylam wstazki, ktora pozostala mi ze swiat jako naszyjnik i braznoletke. Ktoregos wieczoru wychodzilam z przyjaciolmi na drinka i zaraz przed wyjsciem zalozylam dwie dzwoniace branzolety, ktore zostaly z lekcji tanca brzucha. Mysle ze wygladaly swietnie dopelniajac moj outfit. Takie szczegoly buduja calosc.

Ana; Czego nie wiedza o tobie twoje czytelniczki?

Jestem znakomitym life coach i zawsze motywuje ludzi. Jestem w stanie bezblednie odczytac sytuacje a moi przyjaciele polegaja na moim glosie rozsadku.

Ana: Beauty regime?

Pina: Kocham probowac nowe kosmetyki. W zeszlym roku mialam obsesje na punkcie produktow Charlotte Tiblury. Znakomicie nawilzaja co przydaje mi sie jako mieszkance Kanady. Uzywam jej kremu pod oczy i kremu Magic na dzien i na noc. Uwielbiam tez jej maske blotna poniewaz mam po niej promienna cere a la JLO. Na cienie pod oczami uzywam korektora Cle de Peau’s, ktory czyni cuda. Jest drogi ale jest najleszy jakiego do tej pory uzywalam.

Ana: Gdzie robisz zakupy?

Pina; Kocham Zare, H7M i Forever21 gdzie kupuje najnowsze trendy. Odwiedzam tez lokalnego projektanta w Toronto, ktory szyje dla mnie niektore rzeczy na zamowienie. Czesto tez odwiedzam butiki Mendocino i M Boutique. Rzeczy od projektanot czesto kupuje z drugiej reki.

Ana: Gdzie chcialabys pojechac w tym roku?

Pina: Italia! Chcialbym odwiedzic kraj moich przodkow. Wloszki zawsze wygladaja tak naturalnie szykownie. Chcialabym tez wybrac do Miami. Kocham blichtr tego miasta i jego architekture. Te kolorowe budynki wygladaja jak landrynki!
