Being authentically happy never goes out of style

There’s nothing like getting styling tips from a fashion girl. Now, make that a sparkly fashion girl. In our Sparkle Talk Series we chat to sparkly girls, shiny brands and ask fashion and style bloggers to dish out their sparkle style advice.

Last week we chatted to Ellese Launer, writer of the fashion and style blog Rock Paper Glam

HI, ELLESE. WE’VE DISCOVERED YOUR SPARKLY PROFILE ROCK PAPER GLAM ON INSTAGRAM, HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME FOR YOUR BLOG AND WHY DID YOU START IT?

I believe fashion should be fun and playful, so I took a childhood game and put a spin on it!

HOW DO YOU KEEP IT FRESH AND EXCITING, WHERE DO YOU FIND IDEAS?

I draw a lot of inspiration from menswear actually! I think adding a touch of masculinity with feminine elements is such a beautiful combination. I also turn to the runways for upcoming trends.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST EXCITING MOMENT ON YOUR JOURNEY SO FAR.

I have been really fortunate to experience some amazing milestones. I think sitting front row at my first runway show during NYFW is something i’ll never forget.

WHAT’S YOUR PIECE OF ADVICE THAT YOU WOULD GIVE TO WOMEN THAT NEED A LITTLE HAND WHEN IT COMES TO STYLING.

Invest in a really great pair of heels and a great purse. Everything in between can be from budget stores, But your handbag is your calling card.

YOUR LAST SPARKLY PURCHASE WAS

Stuart weitzman otk boots in burgundy. They are amazing!
