Fashion Interview with Tessa from House of Wonderland

Hello Lovelies,

Hope everyone is enjoying February.  I’m excited that I will be rocking it this month with blogging three times a week.  I’ve decided to blog Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  Mondays will be retro fashion history aka Decades of fashion,  Wednesday will be retro beauty tips and tricks, Fridays will be OOTD Fridays.  I will also be featuring small businesses that I love as well! I’m excited to share new content with you weekly.

Next, I got to connect with the lovely and talented Tessa Shearer from the House of Wonderland via #TheGirlGang on Facebook.  I am so glad I found her and this group of amazing women to connect with.  Below is our fashion interview.  🙂

Why is fashion important to you?
Fashion is so important to me as it’s what got me started in my job the first place! I was always inspired by designers, singers, and other famous icons.  It made me work extra hard to pursue a career in fashion.  My earliest memory is creating a pair of shoes made from paper! 😀 I drew around my foot, cut out a strip for the strap and scrunched up a bit of paper for the high heel! I think I looked completely daft but I was so proud of myself 😀
 
How does it make you feel?
One word… Freedom
Where do you go to buy your clothes or which websites do you buy from?
I make some of my clothing as well as buying plain items from cheap stores(Me too!). I do however love investing in key designer pieces, but a big splurge like that only comes once or twice a year due to my poor bank funds (I hear that!) 😀
What is the most important thing you consider when you are shopping?
The thing I think about most is coordinating clothes! I hate to spend too long getting ready so I buy mostly plain black, white, and gray clothing so whatever I put on will match! *Style tip: Doing what Tessa does gives you a chance to show off your personality with your accessories whether it be a bold necklace, leggings, or other jewelry. It will help you stand out but not overdo it! 😉
If you could only wear clothing from one particular decade which one would it be and why?
It has to be the 1950’s! I adore the silhouettes, styles, and class!
What are your favorite accessories to wear, i.e brands, homemade, local, Etsy etc. ?
House Of Wonderland jewellery (I love her vintage-inspired pieces) of course! 😀 But I am a sucker for Tiffany & Co!  I love long simple necklaces although I also love rockabilly necklaces too!
Side note:  Below are my faves from HOW.

How does makeup play into how you dress?  What is your favorite makeup looks and where do you buy your makeup products?
I am so boring! I wear the same stuff every day! I usually wear foundation-liquid, powder, bronzer, blusher, 2-3 eyeshadows, eyeliner, eyebrows, eyeliner, and mascara! I love 1960’s eye makeup though! I couldn’t go anywhere without my eyebrows though! Obsessed about eyebrows! I’m weird like that!
Please describe one of your favorite outfits and if possible the links to where you got the items and or descriptions.
Hmm… My favourite outfit is one I got agggggggeeeeesss ago! I think the shop actually closed down now! But it’s a 3/4 length sleeve black top and a wrap around asymmetric black wiggle skirt? I’ll try and find a picture and enclose it 😀
