Meghan has some great taste… which you can tell by just heading over to WIT & Whimsy for even a tiny period of time. Lucky for us, she’s been able to share some of her experience with us here at DenimDebutante.com. Enjoy the interview!
How did you start WIT & Whimsy and why?
I started WIT & Whimsy back in 2006 because I just adore fashion and women’s lifestyle topics and wanted to share my perspective in a manner where others could enjoy it. Honestly, I can never get enough of fashion and beauty (as proven by the constant stack of magazines on my coffee table and my Google Reader RSS feeds which most would probably describe as “out of control’!). I think the female blogger population is truly amazing and I love sharing with not only that community but other readers who rely on WIT & Whimsy for fresh perspectives on all that is fabulous, fashionable and fun.
Do you have a go-to brand that you trust the most? What do you think they do better than others?
For staples I buy at J.Crew 7 times out of 10 because their pieces are versatile and the sales allow you to stock up so you’re able to refresh your wardrobe on a regular basis with pieces you’ll use in dozens of ways. J.Crew’s silk blouses and cardigans have found a home in my closet many, many times.
… and what is your favorite pair of jeans overall?
Seven for All Mankind. Hands down.
What about your dream pair?
I’m currently lusting after a pair of Current/Elliott’s!
What was your first pair of designer denim (if you remember)?
Seven for All Mankind medium wash bootlegs. I wore them out and had to buy another pair!
If you had one personal tip for DD readers, what would it be?
Don’t worry about the brand or a denim trend as much as the FIT. If a pair of jeans don’t fit you well, it doesn’t matter how much you spent or the brand name. For instance, as much as I love J Brand denim, it doesn’t do me any favors. So stick to your favorites. They’ll probably be happy you’re not cheating on them
