I started as a blogger on http://www.missalvy.com . It was a platform for me to jot down my memories as a diary and also share my love towards fashion, beauty and travel to the world, I guess from there people started to notice me especially my favourite brands, I get to work with them!

Describe your personal style in THREE words
Comfortable, classy and flirty.
Less or more?
I have no preference on this. Sometimes I like to go all natural and be really simple, but sometimes I like to go crazy with my outfits, and be different. There’s no rules in fashion, really.
What do you wear on lazy days?
Dresses. Because, you still look all put together without any efforts!
Who’s your style icon?
Rihanna! I loveeee everything about her! She can pull off any styles from elegant to street, she always looks so good!
How do you stay up to date with fashion?
I occasionally turn on youtube and check out my favourite fashion youtubers current styles. The easiest way to check out the latest trend is on instagram! If i’m feeling the need for more inspiration, I’ll go on google and check out videos on fashion week!
What do you think about denim over denim?
It’s definitely bomb and a fashion statement. However, I avoid wearing the same denim texture, so i don’t look washed out.
Sneakers, flats or heels kinda girl?
Heels! It’s because I’m really short and have a pear shaped body so heels definitely help to elongate my legs.
What’s your style philosophy?
“Everyday is a fashion show and the world is your runway”
What’s a fashion trend that can never let you down?
Plain white t-shirt. If you have nothing to wear, invest on a plain white t-shirt, match it with skirts, or jeans, or oversized jacket. It will never fail to look amazing!
Do you see makeup as part of fashion?
Yes it is. However, without wearing makeup can be a fashion statement too, look at Alicia Keys!
Which celebrities have the best style to you?
My Girl, RIHANNA!
Monochrome or colour blocking?
Can I say both? There’s no rules really. But currently, I’m really into monochrome.
Who is the most fashionable woman that you know?
My mum, sounds corny yes, but she always teaches me how to dress well. Sometimes I thank her for all the vintage gems that she still keeps!
What’s your favourite thing to wear?
Lace-up heels. I have a lot of them!
Accessories you can’t live without?

What are the FIVE things that you must have in your bag?
Lipstick (because I look pale without it) Face mist, in case i need extra hydration. My iphone, ofcourse. Power bank and my purse hahahaha.
