"In 2010 i started a blog and had like two posts, and it was awful and terrible -- like outfit mirror shots. I didn't keep up with it. I had always been interested in fashion and having just graduated college, I was having a hard time finding a job related to fashion, so I decided to start a blog again and try to create something for myself. It's been a really good outlet for me. Creatively, it's been awesome."
"The majority of the skills I have that are really valuable, I've learned from blogging. And most rewarding is the friendships I've gained from blogging. I feel like I've meant so many like-minded people who I wouldn't have met without the blog."
"I shop all over the place, I shop anywhere from Nordstrom to Target. I've been shopping a lot at ASOS recently, and I LOVE Zara. J.Crew, Forever 21, H&M -- it's always a range, it just depends on where I'm going and what I need."
"My favorite designers -- I really love Jason Wu, I feel like he can go from edgy to super-girly. He always has a unique take on things. I love Rachel Zoe because I feel like her clothes are so wearable."
"The meaning (behind Natalie Dressed) is actually based on the phrase 'nattily dressed' -- I had never heard it before, and I looked it up and it essentially means smart or fashionably dressed. I feel like that message, in not just clothing, but in all areas of your life, is very important and super fun. I like the dual meaning and I like that I can put my name on it and kind of have the play on words too."
