A Collected Style Interview Feature: Sonya of TheStreetStyled
I am an Australian girl living in Portugal, who loves graphic design and fashion.
My first ever blog that I started was called Sugar Beauty, after following so many great blogs I thought it would be a cool idea to start my own at blogger. This was my first option because I had never heard about Tumblr until one day, I cant remember from whom but I saw the potential that it could offer. Soon after I migrated Sugar Beauty to Tumblr and began to post, only realizing after two months that a lot of people were also posting similar things (editorials, lookbooks, models etc..). This made me think and look into a new niche.
Then I thought about street style because I enjoyed seeing the real fashion street photographers where capturing and there wasn’t many blogs on Tumblr that posted about this. So that is when The Streetstyled began. It has been two years now, and I have never looked back. I really do enjoy every effort I put into my blog and really want to make something good out of it. So fingers crossed!
