Blogger Inspired Fashion Week 2013 Featuring: Terra - Stylish White Female

Hey Dolls!!

Let’s give a warm welcome to today’s Blogger Inspired Fashion Week Feature – Terra from Stylish White Female.  I found out about Terra’s blog when she left a nice comment on mine and you guys should know by now, I checked her blog out and saw something I liked and been following this Stylish White Female ever since. 
I love all the personality she displays in her posts.  She is hilarious and keeps me laughing.  My favorite thing on Terra’s blog is Terra’s Community Choice Installment because she picks an item or a group of items and seeks advice from her audience on what their favorite look is.  In my opinion all of the choices are good, so it’s a bonus because it’s a really good way of getting the most out of your wardrobe.  Take a look at this Fashionista who is spreading her style all over Pittsburg and the blogosphere. 
Name: Terra McBride
Age (optional): 34
Full Time Career: Director of Social Media

Tell Me and My Readers a little bit about yourself and your background.
Pittsburgh is where I live with my husband and 17 month-old daughter. I’m passionate about good food, fitness and a solid sense of style.

How would you describe your signature style?
Feminine with an insatiable urge to experiment.

How do you go about creating an outfit or look?
I’ll usually be in the mood to wear one thing {a pair of pants, a skirt, tights} and I’ll build my outfit around that one piece. Clearly the weather plays into whether I choose boots or pumps and my mood dictates heels versus flats. Hint: It’s almost always heels!

What is your FAVORITE Feature to accentuate?
I like my legs in skirts. When I was younger, I often thought my legs were too ‘meaty.’ But over the last few years, I’ve embraced my legs and felt like they are perfectly muscular.

What are your FAVORITE places to shop?
Jupe Boutique, Hip’tique and Pavement in Pittsburgh. Zara, ASOS and Queens Wardrobe online.

Who are your FAVORITE Designers and/or Clothing Brands?
Do I have to choose? If I must... My favorite designers are Alexander McQueen, Diane von Furstenberg, and Rachel Zoe.

Is there a Spring/Summer trend that you’re dying to incorporate into your wardrobe?
Truth be told, I don’t try to seek out trends. I go with what I love. That said, I am in love with the Pantone color of the year, emerald. I’ve been wondering how I can incorporate emerald into spring/summer, since I think of emerald as a fall/winter color.

Why Blogging? What turned you on to the Blogosphere?
I’ve always enjoyed online communities. I was seeking an opportunity for a creative outlet and the blog seemed like a great way to express myself with writing and photography. It’s been fun to build relationships and learn new skills.

What thing(s) sets your blog apart from other blogs?
I hope that my point of view helps set me apart from other blogs. I love Pittsburgh and I love supporting local businesses and initiatives.


Name 3 Bloggers whose style you just live for.
As you know, my blog is geared towards FASHION and FINANCE, so tell me in what ways you combine the two.
When I think of finance, I think of conservative clothing. But that definitely does not mean boring. Pencil skirts are one of the sexiest pieces of clothing. Pair one with funky pumps and a perfectly-fit blazer and you look kind of perfect!
What advice would you give to up and coming Fashion Bloggers?
Above all else, you must be yourself. Everyone has something to say that will resonate with others. If you’re honest about who you are, people will be attracted to that. And you will be happier with what you are producing.

I would definitely say that Terra lives up to her moniker “Stylish White Female.”  There is never a dull moment in her wardrobe in my opinion and she shows great variety in her styles from professional to casual all the way to maternity options.  Now, I have to be honest, I have never looked at or known Pittsburg to be a Fashionable place, but Terra has surely changed my mind about that, not only with her own personal style but by sharing some hot shopping spots as well.  So I’m guessing maybe I need to put Pittsburg on my list of places to visit in the future.  Dolls, if you haven’t already, be sure to check out Stylish White Female, I’m sure you can and will learn a lot from Terra. 
I know you’re wondering which look of Terra’s I chose to re-produce.  Well here goes….I chose this cute colorful look from Terra's SWF Seeks...Color Splash post on 7/16/2012.  I hope you like my depiction of your look Terra.  
 Dolls, what do you think?
