Ginger Mattison is the brains behind not one, but two fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogs (The Fierceness and Make It Dirty). And she’s pretty, well, fierce. So we chatted with her about her fashion and style inspiration, yummy summer recipes, and the hottest accessories for summer. Read on!
Tell us a bit about yourself. How did you get into blogging?
Growing up I wanted to be a beauty editor for a magazine. When I realized it wasn’t going to happen, I took matters into my own hands. I get to experience a variety of things and ever since I started my life has been much more interesting!
Describe your style in 3 words.
Feminine, Classic, Edgy
Where do you get your fashion inspiration?
Everywhere! Celebrities, other bloggers, my surroundings. I carry around a notebook so I can write down all my ideas because the random things can be so inspiring.
What’s the trend forecast for this summer?
I am most excited for midi skirts in a pencil shape. J.Crew has one right now and I want it in every color.
What is the hottest hue of the summer?
Tomato red is a classic that I love to break out for summer, it gets me in vacation mode.
What ‘s your go-to summer accessory?
Definitely a straw fedora. Adding one to your outfit makes even a t-shirt and shorts so chic.
Do you have any new summer recipes to share?
I’m a vegan and love to bake. I can’t wait to try this amazing strawberry rhubarb crumb pie recipe from Isa Chandra Moschowitz: http://www.theppk.com/2011/05/strawberry-rhubarb-crumb-pie/
What’s your favorite piece of jewelry you own?
It’s a tie between an amethyst heart necklace my husband gave me for my birthday and an arrow bracelet I wear with everything.
You have a men’s lifestyle blog, Make it Dirty, as well. What inspired you to create that?
My new years resolution was to incorporate more masculinity into my look. The more research I did, the more I realized how much is out there. I wanted to create a place where men could go to learn about grooming, style and cooking but not have to go to a women’s blog to get it.
What’s your favorite item from EvesAddiction.com this summer?
I am a sucker for cocktail rings. You just need that one show stopping piece and your outfit is complete. This black rose ring could be dressed up or down and I love black jewelry.
