This girl swept me of my feet in the way that I became a fan of her twice in less then half a month. She landed in the list of style icons twice and twice at top speed, one time due to a fake user who stole some photographs somewhere in the middle of August and the other time with her real account, exposing the faker and placing a real Chictopian record (over 150 fans in less then ten days). This new style icon has been on the first page each time she uploaded, I present to you : lehappy

There was a fake account created in your name, using pictures from your blog. What was your first reaction? I was a little bit shocked by the idea of seeing my pictures posted by another person, assuming to be me. It is a form of disrespect to the effort I’ve put into these pictures. It’s so easy creating a fake profile on the internet. What really annoyed me the most was that she wrote large descriptions about the garments, which revealed a totally different personality then my own.

For me it was a good thing she mentioned your actual blog because it revealed your true personality and made me want to do this interview. Do you have any idea how this person operated? I have no clue! But what I know is that this person is very creepy and doesn’t have any boundaries.

Do you believe you could have prevented this from happening? Actually no. I made a Chictopian account a couple of days before she made the fake one. But I didn’t update as frequently as she did.

When I was interviewing you, you had the title of style icon in an arms reach, today you are one how does that feel and what does being a Chictopian style icon mean to you? Being a Chictopian style icon means a lot to me. I’m really thankful and honoured :)

I really love all of your outfits, they have a lot of je ne sais quoi. How would you describe your own signature style? Eclectic. I would describe it as the combination of vintage, grunge and gothic. Sometimes simply one of these styles, sometimes the three all together! I love almost every single style out there. I can’t mention just one trend because it wouldn’t be sincere. However, I have always been leaning more towards dark colours, so I would say I wear the dark items of every style adding at least one black accessory to each outfit.

I read about your Peruvian background, in what way does your origin influence your style? If you mean the community in my surroundings I would say not that much, people in Peru tend to wear whatever commercial brands propose to them, the majority does not have a personal style. However, the aesthetic scenery we have does inspire me enormously and that influences my style. One of the most inspirational moments was on my trip to the jungle.

Does your fashion sense run in the family? My family is not that into fashion but that doesn’t mean they lack any sense of style. My mom used to dress AMAZING when she was my age. I want to kill her every time I see old pictures where she’s rocking badass stuff.

Tell us about your blog, what makes it stand out? I think what makes my blog a little bit different is that I try showing my personality in every post. I don’t want it look too general and formal, you know. I keep it as a fashion diary where I share a little bit of my life to awesome pals around the world and thank them enormously for their feedback.

You’ve been on the first page several times now, any tips for other Chictopians in order to get there? Just try to show the outfit in the best way possible! I don’t think that lighting is that important as long as the picture looks good all together. What I mean is that there are some darker pictures that actually look better that way. So I would say, just try to show your outfit in the way you think is best and make sure that you get a clear shot of every garment on your body, so that people can appreciate the combination better :)

What would be your advice for new Chictopians who are reading this interview? Enjoy your wardrobe and share it with us. Be spontaneous keeping your personal style!

Are there any trends you would like to try for yourself in the future? I am loving the ombré hair so much. But I don’t think it would look good on me so I probably wont try it at all :(

I have exactly the same idea about ombré hair :) What would you do with a piece of white fabric if you don’t have anything to wear on a normal day? To find your own personal style you need to start from scratch and follow the path that your intuition wants you to follow. Believing in yourself is the most significant thing when finding an individual style. Get inspired by all trends in the world but don’t let it submerge you completely and avoid getting caught in trends that don’t suit you.

Thank you for this interview, you are such an inspiring person. I wish you all the best in life, may you never experience identity theft again and live your dreams!! For anyone who hasn’t visited lehappy’s blog , you really should!! You’ll find a lovely assembly of great pictures with a vintage-vibe.
