Style Q&A with Rosie of Secondhand Rose

It’s time to go behind the seams with another fashion blogger to find out what her style secrets are!

As the title implies, this is a series I’ve started here on my blog where I pick the brain of my favorite fashion people to find out what their style secrets are.

Today I’m thrilled to introduce you to Rosie of Secondhand Rose. She’s Canadian and has great style. Need I say more? ? How about that she has a knack for wearing head to toe black but makes it look unique with quirky details and interesting extras. Read on to learn more about her style!

How did you get into fashion/fashion blogging?

I was in such a rut when I started my blog back in 2012. I had just dropped out of college and my creative passions seemed to have left me. The only thing that really made sense to me at the time was working on my personal style and I felt the need to turn that into a creative outlet. There were a handful of other plus size bloggers around at the time and they really inspired me to start my own blog. Fashion has always been something that appealed to me. I have always been fat and dressing a fat body, especially when you’re young and especially during the late ’90s and early ’00s was extremely difficult. It seemed that everything was designed for older women and I wasn’t happy with that. I had to start thinking outside the box when it came to fashion from a young age and that’s something that has stuck with me ever since. I hope it never leaves me.

Where do you draw outfit inspiration from?

Mainly Instagram! I live for the explore page.

What is one thing you’d never give away in your closet and why?

My black Pascal Dr. Marten boots. They’re so comfortable and they go with everything. I love adding a bit of edge to my ensembles and they’re the perfect piece to do that with.

Who are three fashion bloggers inspiring you at the moment?

Right now I’m obsessed with Natalie from Shameless Creature, Kiah from Rez to the City, and my real life BFF, Laura from The Fashion Kidd .

These ladies have the best style and I love how they break fashion “rules” constantly and effortlessly.

What style advice would you give others?

Don’t listen to what others have to say. If you feel comfortable in something, if you’re happy with what you’re wearing and if it’s not offensive – wear the hell out of it.
