favourite chictopian inspiration There are many inspirations for me on Chictopia. For starters Haiku_Ambulance and Aphrodite are absolutely chic, elegant and sexy. Then angiekje and Annebeth, I look forward to their posts every single day because they are so creative and fun. Also SonjaG and cityofbugs; they are so adorable and girly. And so there are many more, but I cannot mention all of them here.

A girl who is in love with fashion ever since she was born, empowered by flowers, chocolate and the most delicate style. From the land of beautiful things; sushi, mochi (I personally can’t live without those), the most gorgeous garments, accessories and many more: NanaHoshino

I absolutely adore your style and would describe it as flawless, delicate and girly. What inspires you on a daily basis? Thank you! I love fashion magazines (I am a Vogue and Elle addict), I am also inspired by fashion blogs and fashion week reports.
I was working as a florist before and painting is one of my hobbies. These two activities have learned me a lot about the use of colour. Nature contains so many colour combinations and you can also find these in any form of art.

You take great pictures and have been on the homepage several times, how do you decide where to take these and what’s your favourite part of the day to do this? I am still learning how to take good pictures from other Chictopians and still discover new ways to take them.
I was very happy to see my photo on the first page (made a print screen)! I take all pictures myself; I am an independent person, live alone and I am single :) When I take these pictures I first look around to check and make sure no one is around, then I open the back door of my car, place the camera in it and push the self-timer. If someone catches me by surprise, I pretend to look for something in my car. It’s kind of funny. That is why I often take pictures at parking spots or quiet roads on weekend mornings.

I am very happy to find a congenial person on Chictopia! I tried it yesterday and it worked very well!! Thank you so much for that tip!!
When I get caught while taking pictures I tend to pretend I’m just standing there, looking at something :D (this works very well if you have your hands on your hips or so, but you should try it standing in an awkward pose lol)
Where you in the blogosphere before you became a member of chictopia? I first started my own blog in order to improve my English. I wanted to record my favourite items and outfits so I decided to blog about fashion. While I was browsing other fashion blogs, I noticed many fashion bloggers with Chictopian badges and I really wanted one on my blog. That’s when I decided to join Chictopia and once I started I really liked the concept. I am now posting my outfits more on Chictopia then I am writing my own blog.

You are a very active member, what draws you toward Chictopia every day? It is like an addiction actually. There are so many stylish people and they all have their own unique style, I just don’t want to miss out on their latest outfits. It makes me want to check what they are wearing today, every day.
When I post my outfits and receive kind comments from my chic friends, it makes me happy every single time and makes me gain confidence in myself. I am glad to meet lovely friends who all have the same quality: a passion for fashion. And also, I can be something similar to a model here even though I am very small!

I agree with EVERYTHING you are saying :) being a Chictopian also helps improving my self-image and that’s simply amazing.
What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe? Heels! I’ve always hated my calves. When I was a student I practiced a lot of sports. I got a bit muscular and my legs became more male. A boy once told me “you are small but you have big legs…” Ever since, I only wore pants…. until one day, I was wearing heels, looked at a mirror and noticed, they didn’t look bad at all! I began to enjoy wearing skirts and shorts with heels. At that moment my wardrobe expanded enormously.

Ever since I’ve read “Memoires of a Geisha” I have been in love with Japan and I would LOVE to go there someday. Tell me what it is like to live there? First of all I want to say; I also really love going on trips, I have been to many countries, I loved them all and would like to visit some more in the future. I must admit it is lovely to live in Japan, we have beautiful seasons, culture and food. I am proud of the kimono in particular. It is not comfortable to wear but has amazing dye, embroidery, etc. I am planning on wearing my kimono to my friends wedding and am excited to show it to you on my blog. ;)

Definitely one of my favourites in the book too, the way they describe the beauty of a kimono. Any last words?
“I apologize about my lack of vocabulary. Thank you for choosing me for the interview, Angie! Chictopians are always so kind and positive. I am happy to be one of the members. I want to say “Arigatou” to everyone here. :) "

You are very welcome, you’re such an inspiration to me and so many other Chictopians, I just had to know more about you. Arigatou Nana and may everything go as you please in your life!! Thank you for reading this interview everyone!!
