We caught up with one of our favorite bloggers Megan, from Donatila Rose, to talk style. If you read our blog on the regular (which, you should!) you’ve probably noticed that she’s been all over it lately! What can we say…when we’re obsessed, we’re obsessed.
NAME: Megan Rose
BLOG URL: http://donatilarose.blogspot.com/
Hometown: Bay Area, CA
Favorite food: I am very open-minded when it comes to food so I have SO many favorites. Filipino, Japanese and Indian are some of them.
Best movie ever: It’s really hard to answer “best or favorite things” questions because I never have only one. But these are some: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, La Bamba, Blow, Science of Sleep, Clockwork Orange, and Dragon.
Favorite color: Cream and orange.
Hidden talent: I’m great at finding things my husband loses.
Number of shoes in your closet: I haven’t actually counted but around 50 pairs.
How did you start blogging?
I came across Chictopia while searching for a pair of shoes and found individual blogs from there. There were a few that I frequented and they inspired me to start my own.
How would you describe your style in 5 words or less?
Retro, simple, minimalist, prim.
Finish this sentence:
I’ll never be caught dead wearing…there are certain brands that I want to say, but one I think is safe to say is Ed Hardy, lol.
What blogs or fashion sites do you check religiously?
Of course, Fashion Toast. Sincerely, Jules is really cute and I get a lot of inspiration from Oracle Fox and Knight Cat.
What’s the best style advice anyone has ever given you?
YSL said it best, “Fashion fades, style is forever.” Interpreting that gives you good advice: find your style, which is natural, unique and constant. Once you find it, you can take any fashion or trend, that you like of course, give it your touch and you feel good about it.
What 5 things can you NEVER leave the house without?
iPhone, purse, keys, sunnies, and sunblock.
It’s a typical Saturday night, where are you, who are you with, and what are you doing?
These days, most likely at home with the family. In the rare occasion that I am out, it’s with my husband and our friends. I like low-key lounges with good music like the ones that can take me way back, the classics, reggae, and current ones.
What do you love about DV by Dolce Vita?
I love that it carries the same unique style as the original Dolce Vita but in a much more affordable price. I always had to wait for my favorite Dolce Vita shoes to go on sale. The quality is really good too!
