Memoirs of a Fashion Blogger: Meet Tammy

Ladies and gentlemen, do I have a treat for you today!  Since I am such a fan of fashion and how style is interpreted by other fashion bloggers, I wanted to start up a new segment on the blog called "Memoirs of a Fashion Blogger."  My goal is to interview fashion bloggers to get a glimpse of the fashion world from their points of view.  When I first gave energy to the idea, blogger Tammy of A Fendi Bag and a Bad Attitude was the first person that came to mind. She is one of the first fashion bloggers I followed when I started blogging and I've loved getting to know her through these internet streets.  She has great style, impeccable taste in shoes and definitely has an attitude of the city.  And if that didn't reel me in, the LL Cool J's "Around the Way Girl" references in her blog's name totally won me over.  So ladies and gents, I present to you Fashion Blogger Tammy of A Fendi Bag and a Bad Attitude.

D: So Tammy, tell me about your blog.
T: My blog is my personal diary. I use my environment (New York) as a reflection for my blog. I get inspired from these NYC streets to blog about fashion (new trends, street style, and art), music and my love for the city. My blog is me.... My love for shoes, fashion & New York.

D: How do you define your style? Do you have a signature look?
T: I don’t think I have a signature look. I do notice that whenever I’m out & about, at different events or even sometimes doing my “street-style” photo-shoots, that I am usually in the color black. Some may say that wearing black is all me BUT don’t get it twisted... I am NOT afraid of color.

My look changes daily to what I like and feel comfortable in. One day I could be my in comfortable Camo outfit, a pair of heels with red lips and another time I could be over the top... Overly accessorized, color blocking... just adding and mixing with the newest trends that I see daily on the street of New York. So you can say that I define my style as versatile... bad ass.... chic, lol

D: Where do you look for style inspiration?
T: I get all of my style inspiration from New York. This is the BEST place to see everything and just be inspired from the different people and looks that I see.

D: Who are your style icons?
T: ALWAYS and FOREVER... June Ambrose. I also cannot forget Angela Simmons, Rihanna and Olivia Palermo & I cannot forget about my Style Bloggers.

D: Who are some other fashion bloggers you admire?
T:  Monroe Steele, Monica Rose (stylist), Claire of The Fashion Bomb Daily, and Style Pantry.

D: What items do you feel are wardrobe "must-haves?"
T: I feel that every female should have at least (3) black dresses in their closet (it’s so necessary), a pair of red and Black pumps, Skinny leg jeans/ boyfriend jeans and a few graphic tees.
D: I think I have all of these covered.  Maybe I need to add another black dress or two to the mix though!

D: What are your favorite places to shop?
T: I love boutiques (on-line as well), vintage stores... walking around in SoHo, H&M and Topshop.

D: What [trends] are you looking forward to wearing in the Spring?
T: Believe it or not I am looking forward to mixing prints, tribal prints and the bold colors... I can’t wait!

D: If your style had a theme song, what would it be?
T: Haha...  good question... I have a few but one that will fit me would be Dipset- “I’m Ready.” This song just says “I’m ready and always on point.”
D: I just love you for that answer, Tammy!  I love me some Dipset! *humming Jimmy's verse as I type*

D: Do you have any styling tips or advice you would like to give someone who's working on developing her personal style?
T: Be YOURSELF. Be comfortable. Set your own trends, don’t be afraid to explore with colors and different prints and ALWAYS dress like you’re going to meet your worst enemy.
