Zoe Namey, Creator of Zoe With Love is next up in our special feature on fashion and lifestyle bloggers. She is dishing the scoop on her favorite Pittsburgh based boutique, Spring and Summer trends to look out for, and her idea of the perfect date outfit. Check it out!
Define your style?
Feminine and chic -all the way.
What is your idea of a perfect date outfit (for a man and woman)?
A killer dress and heels for the ladies and a tailored pant, casual jacket and slim button up shirt for the guys. That’s how my husband and I usually dress, anyway.
In what ways do you think that fashion is evolving in Pittsburgh?
Well… I just think it’s a good time to be doing anything related to style and fashion in Pittsburgh right now. It seems like there is a genuine interest from the city as a whole and people are in search of things like this to follow locally. It’s great to see it unfolding.
Using one word, describe Pittsburgh style?
Who is your celebrity style crush?
I have 3 in particular that I swoon over. The always fabulous Sarah Jessica Parker, the age defying JLo and the Olsen twins who I grew up watching since the Full House days (I guess that’s technically 4.)
What are your favorite places to shop in Pittsburgh?
No. 14 has never disappointed me. And this isn’t fashion related, but my all time favorite place to stroll and shop is the Strip District on the weekends.
What inspired you to start a blog and what makes your blog different?
It started with searching for a creative outlet and a place to organize all my thoughts. I liked the idea of funneling things that inspire me into one place. This is a difficult question because every blog is different since each blog incorporates something unique about the writer’s personality and interests. My interests go beyond fashion and into interior styling and florals, which I personally believe go hand in hand with fashion.
What is your favorite lipstick (color and brand)?
Dior Addict Lip Glow in Lilac.
What trends can fashionistas look forward to for Spring and Summer 2016?
Lots of floral prints!
What is your favorite accessory?
A great bag, if you’re going to splurge on one item, this is it.
What advice do you have for someone who is trying to discover his/her’s sense of style?
Think of your personal style as a means to express your personality. It’s a way to visually express ourselves without having to say anything.
