{SS} What inspired you to start the StyleMile

{BC} I’ve always enjoyed a level of quirkiness and creativity when it comes to style. It’s fascinating how you can say so much with just what you’re wearing. Somewhere between collecting a wardrobe that would put a Hoarders episode to shame, and needing a way to document them, StyleMile was born. I have many different personal side projects but this is definitely my baby – it represents so much of myself, and how I’ve evolved stylistically and as a person.

{SS} Your go-to blog list?

{BC} There are so many inspiring bloggers out there! But my favorites are The Style Student, On The Racks, Atlantic Pacific, Sea of Shoes, The Blonde Salad and Garotas Estúpidas & Blog da Thássia from Brazil.

{SS} In regards to your personal style, do you have a signature accessory?

{BC} My wardrobe is ever changing, however I am known to always be rocking pretty rad kicks. From flats to sneakers to heels, shoes are my favorite staples – and I don’t necessarily have to break the bank every time! I just love that even if you’re having a bad hair day, you spilled tea on your blouse or anything like that, you can always count on a pair of shoes to lift your spirits (and your outfit).

{SS} A few items in your “styleshack” A.K.A closet that you can’t live without? 

{BC} 1) A neutral blazer is a staple for every season – especially in Michigan where even summer nights can get chilly. 2) Little black dresses are also a must. From workday to date night, you can easily give a simple LBD an overhaul with the right accessories and duh, some fab shoes. 3) Finally, I can’t ever get enough of jewelry, dainty or statement. When I’m sans-earrings I feel totally naked.

{SS} Who inspires your style? Favorite Style Icon?

{BC}  How cliché would it be to say Sarah Jessica Parker – or more specifically Carrie Bradshaw? Haha, but seriously, Carrie embodies the essence of dressing for yourself and no one else. She could get away with mixing couture and an old college tee with such ease. Questionable choices? In life, yes. In style, never. I call it taking risks and it pushes me to take some of my own.

{SS} Favorite “local” boutique(s)? 

{BC} I love the thrill of finding amazing thrifted pieces. Whenever I’m in Royal Oak, I stop by Sally’s on 4th to do some hunting! I’ve struck gold there a few times! I’ve also shopped at The Posh Boutique in Novi, and Caruso Caruso in Birmingham.

{SS} Favorite fashion social media app or social media site?

{BC} Instagram is currently the mecca of fashion and style inspiration. So naturally every morning I scroll through it as I’m getting ready for work for ideas and just to stay up-to-date with trends (follow me @bruntunes!). I also like DuJour, which an app for your looks. You can tag each piece and ask for feedback from other users – it’s pretty fun!

{SS} Currently listening to….

{BC} Lana Del Rey’s new album Ultraviolence on repeat. Cruel World is my favorite track. I saw her live twice this year and she’s a crazy-talented artist, not to mention a great style icon as well.

200px-The_Fault_in_Our_Stars{SS} Summer read? 

{BC}I’m totally behind on book trends, but I’ve been reading “The Fault In Our Stars” recently, trying to avoid seeing the movie before I finish! I’ve been also reading a book on Brazilian history – which is where I’m from – “The History of Brazil in 50 Quotes,” that digs deep into a bunch of famous quotes throughout time.

{SS} If you could go anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would you go?

eiffel-tower{BC}I would wake up, lean out the flower-donned windowsill overlooking the city, and my eyes would focus on The Eiffel Tower. Le sighs…

{SS} Words to live by?
