Fashionista OF The Month:
1. We would love to get to know you more. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hi! My name is Laura Gedeon, I am a Seattle based blogger, social media manager, and fashion photographer. Most of the time you can find me sipping coffee and editing photos at my local coffee shop or out taking photos for a local blogger.
2. How did your passion for fashion start?
My real passion for fashion started in high school when I took a fashion merchandising course. It inspired me to not follow the traditional college route, and attend FIDM (the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) in Los Angeles where I obtained a degree in Merchandise Marketing. I feel like fashion has always been the base throughout my schooling and career.
3. If you had to pick one store to shop at for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Nordstrom! They have the BEST customer service and are always on trend. I feel like its definitely worth it to spend more on quality items and to support a business that is focused on their customers! Also, they carry super cute home decor and have the best fries at their bistro.
4. What is your must have accessory?
I am not a big accessory gal but I ALWAYS have a coffee in my hand, a busy girl has got to stay awake somehow!
5. Who is your main fashion inspiration?
Honestly, this changes pretty much weekly but I have been loving @tezzamb and @jacimariesmith, I have both of their preset packs and I am obsessed with their unique aesthetics! Their style in both photos and clothes definitely stands out from the rest of the (very large) blogger crowd.
6. Describe your “go to” outfit?
This fall my go-to outfit has been an oversized sweater paired with my favorite fisherman hat, skinny jeans, and some black booties. I am usually running out the door in a hurry so it’s always good to have this on hand!
7. What are your future goals for your personal brand?
I would absolutely love to blog full time. Content creation is definitely my passion and although it is so amazing that I get the opportunity to do this for other brands, I would love to create more for myself.
8. What makes you feel beautiful?
A matching bra and underwear set makes me feel like I can conquer the world.
9. What makes your heart beat? What do you believe in, stand for, and want to tell others about?
Live your truth! Do what makes you happy! Go out there and live your best life! We spend a majority of our lives at work (9-5, M-F, 4 times a month, 52 times a year) so do something you enjoy. Turn your passion into your career and figure out a way to monetize what you love to do all day. If you do something you are passionate about, it won’t feel like work.
