Welcome to our first ever feature!
Each month, we aim to feature a new blogger or instagrammer who (we think you'll agree) have rad style.
Erin first caught our eye with her part minimalistic, part borrowed-from-the-boys looks on instagram (@nsyerin). We fell in love with her gorgeous, curated feed and were immediately inspired to reach out and collaborate with her on a blogpost.
Her blog, Color With Rouge provides an insight to her personal life, photography and fashion pursuits. We wanted to get to know this multi-faceted virtuoso better, and decided to do a quick interview with her.
SFG: Tell us a little about yourself.
ERIN: I'm 19 going 20 in November this year, which feels extremely morbid. I've played the piano & violin since a young age and am currently in the midst of a gap year to prepare to study music. Fashion and reading are also some of my other favourites.
SFG: How would you describe your style?
ERIN: My style is very simple and more often than not, monochromatic. The only colours I occasionally wear are nudes, grey, blue and sometimes flannel red. It took quite some time to figure out what my "style" is but I think I've finally settled on (sort of) minimalism now.
SFG: What are some trends/styles that you're loving right now?
ERIN: I'm a big fan of layering and coats but it's such a bummer that I can't pull that trend without possibly getting a heatstroke in Singapore. I'm also pretty into the female menswear trend, like loafers, knee-length shorts and oversized boyfriend style apparels. And, well, minimalistic style.
SFG: We love discovering new bloggers with awesome style. Are there any fashion/style blogs that you read on the regular?
ERIN: My number one go-to blog when I'm feeling at a loss of inspiration is www.ordinarypeople.ca by Alyssa Lau. Sometimes I try to channel her style but it doesn't really work hahaha. There are also www.fashiononymous.net by Zoe Suen, www.parfasseux.blogspot.com by Yan Yan Chan and www.eclecticfashion.blogspot.com by Cathy Nguyen!
SFG: What would be your perfect weekend?
ERIN: At the moment, my weekends are all about work and rushing homework for the coming music theory lesson on Monday as a result of too much procrastination. So a perfect weekend would be spending Saturday out with friends, then spending Sunday just sleeping in and chilling at home.
We also sent Erin some pieces she picked from our store, to see how she would style them. As expected, she wore them in her typical slightly quirky fashion. Head over here to see the full post on her blog. Here are some of our favourites.
When we sent her our ALEXA dress, we definitely did not expect her to layer it over a shirt. A feminine, flirty dress instantly transformed into something more edgy and preppy, especially when paired with sneakers. One dress, many outfits. Genius!
Here are the other two items Erin picked, and layered for the following look.
- VIDA Denim Jumpsuit (sold out)
- ANDREA Watercolour Print Top (sold out)
We can't wait to see more updates from this fresh face, with her unique style and gorgeous photographs. We're sure she would be posting more pictures once she gets through her upcoming violin exams.
With love from us at SFG, GOOD LUCK ERIN! <3
