Clogs! // Interview with Maria of CHICISIMO!!!!!!!

Many of my dear readers are familiar with Chicisimo.com (I'm sure!) Maria the founder of the site, was kind enough do to an interview with me. Enjoy!

Mouthwash:Chicisimo is such a wonderful accomplishment! It's quite an astonishing feat, really. About how many hours a week would you say you spend updating it?

Maria: Well, that's not easy to respond to. I am quite adicted to personal style blogs, I love them, I love personal style pictures, so I spend a lot of time visiting blogs and enjoying new styles. I update Chicisimo in between those visits. I spend all my day doing this. I love it!

Mouthwash: Does anyone help you with Chicisimo?

Maria: Yes! I started alone back at the end of 2008 in San Francisco. Not long ago, my hubby started helping me: he's the geek one in the couple,  I love [the] fashion.

Mouthwash: From all the outfits you see from week to week, are you seeing a favorite trend of the moment? What catches your eye?

Maria: Good question! Chicisimo is just a reflection of the personal style community and therefore we see all kind of trends. We can't forget these girls are true fashionistas and a lot are beyond trends: some wear the latest trends, others wear what will become trends in next seasons... What is important is to be happy with your style, and I see a lot of that - also summer dresses worn now in winter.  What catches my eye? Diversity! I love to see girls trying new things!

Mouthwash: Do you have a(ny) favorite designer(s)?

Maria: No! I like a lot of them, but I don't have a personal favorite. A while back, it used to be Giorgio Armani! Now, I go through tons and tons of collections and select what I like in each of them. Later, I remember the specific piece but I forget about the designer :(

Mouthwash: Tell us 3 items in your fridge that you couldn't do with out.

Maria: Fruits, vegetables and cold water are my 2010 resolution. But what I truly love is chocolate, cockies, icecream, coke and candy. The problem is: I cant control myself with this stuff!

Mouthwash: Would you be willing to give a snap-shot of the must have items in your purse? ie, items you couldn't leave the house without?

Maria: My wallet and keys are the two only items I always have with me. I don't take my sunglasses, or make-up, or brush. I can't even remember to take my cell with me. I'm a disaster!!!

Mouthwash: What's some of the music you are listening to now?

Maria: I listen to all types of music, but I'm lately listening a lot to Madonna, Alejandro Sanz, Shakira, old songs of La Oreja de Vangogh and Michael Jackson. And you'll laugh, but having the little girls (3, 4 and 5 years old) Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and similar songs are part of my everyday life.

Mouthwash:Thank you so much Maria for taking the time to do an interview with Amber's Mouthwash!
