What is your blog about?
Haus of Steez is a translation of “house of style” I chose this name knowing that I wanted my blog to focus on my two passions in life, interior design (haus) and personal style (steez). My blog shows my viewers not only outfitting tips but also interior decor inspiration.
What inspired you to start your blog?
It all began when I won a couple Instagram giveaways. After I received the merchandise, I would style a look around it and re-post to my personal page. I noticed that people really started to gravitate towards how I put my looks together. The brands sometimes re-posted my images to share with their fans. It was not only exciting, but it also made me more passionate about the collaboration of personal styling.
How would you describe your personal style?
I like to think of myself as a style. Because of my professional job as an interior designer, I can’t always dress the way I want. My look often changes from preppy to pin-up during the work week and then to edgy and punk over the weekends. The expression of individuality is what I love most about my personal style.
What is your favorite pair of shoes that you own?
My Edison lace up oxfords from Michael Kors are my favorite pair as of late.
What/who are your favorite brands/designers?
Mink Pink, Nasty Gal, Missguided, Unif, Topshop, Miista, The Ragged Priest, and Zara to name a few.
What is your favorite restaurant?
The Meatball Shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
The best local spot in your neighborhood?
Space 98‘s rooftop bar on those Brooklyn summer nights.
