Today we meet Jelka of Fashion Ice.
Hi Jelka, tell us a little bit about yourself (who you are/what you do/where you’re from, etc.).
I’m Jelka Lepever, a 16 year old student/model from Belgium
and the proud owner of www.fashion-ice.blogspot.com.
How would you define your style?
I think you can’t define my style. I always wear something different. One day I’ll be dressed up and the other day I’ll be wearing something comfortable. I wear what I like at the time.
How did you find your sense of style?
I’ve always been interested in fashion but I was afraid to express myself in it. Trough the years I got tired of it and decided to wear what I like and don’t care what people would say. At this day I’m still trying to create my own style.
What inspired you to start a style blog? What motivates you to keep blogging?
My very first blog was intended for my modeling career, to show my latest pictures and stuff. When I got in touch with fashion I thought it would be cool to share my experience and style with the world.
I never expected that people would read my blog, just the fact that people read my blog motivates me.
What was the best comment you ever received from a reader?
I think each comment is amazing! I love to read all the comments, positive or negative. I learn from each comment!
Who/what inspires you?
The street looks! I love to see what other people like to wear.
What are your favourite pieces in your wardrobe?
Blazers for sure! I love to wear blazers, you can wear it in a casual outfit as in a comfortable outfit. It fits in almost every outfit!
What is your top fashion tip?
Wear what you like and don’t be afraid of what other people say. Fashion must be fun
What advice do you have for new bloggers or people considering starting a blog?
Write about what you like and be honest with your readers, your readers will try to get to know you like they know you for ages.
What importance do social networks have for you?
A lot, it’s an easy way to get to know your readers better and what they like about your blog/style.
What is your favourite thing to do when not blogging?
Beside blogging I love to spend some time with my friends and family.
And of course I’m very busy with modeling also.
How would you describe fashion in the city where you live?
They like to be dressed as comfortable as they can be.
What message do you hope to send to your readers?
Don’t care what people think of say about you, be yourself! Life’s too short to be someone else.
