Neon Fox

Alicia, who really portraits herself in her blog-Neon Fox. This is where her journey start! A 18 year old college student majoring in fashion merchandising has her own opinion with fashion and style. Here, we have an original neon fox! 

Tell me about yourself.
I will try to do this as briefly as possible. First off my name is Alicia and it's pronounced ah-lee-cee-ah. I'm 18 and currently in my first year at the Fashion Institute of Technology, majoring in fashion merchandising. I'm was born but not raised in Brooklyn, NY and after high school I moved here for college. Um, I can speak gibberish-if that counts-haha. Oh and for some culture background, I am Trinidadian and Cuban.
How would you describe your style?
My style changes daily. Sometimes it's based on mood or whatever I have that's clean that I can throw together, haha.

How did Neon Fox start?
I must say starting Neon Fox was not easy at all. I think I renamed it way too many times until I reached satisfaction. Basically I was inspired by other blogs that I read daily. Fashion Toast was a huge inspiration for me to start a personal style/interest blog. I guess I kinda wanted something I can call me own and blog about what I love-that is fashion and style of course.
What do you hope to achieve with Neon Fox?
I hope to achieve better writing skills definitely. I hope that someone will possibly find me inspiring like I find other bloggers inspiring. Meeting new people in the blogosphere would be cool as well. I mean I don't expect to achieve a whole lot, it's just a hobby for now.

Who usually take your pictures?
Myself. If only I had a personal photographer.
What camera are you using for the pictures?
A really beat up regular digital camera. Panasonic Lumix DMC-F3 to be exact. Hopefully soon I can get something better.

Few things you really love about the place you live.
I love the variety of cultures in Brooklyn. The thrift stores are the coolest. And the food here is soooo good. 

Your favorite saying/quote?
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” -Coco Chanel
Which is your favorite fashion designer at this moment, why?
I don't have a particular favorite fashion designer, because they're all so great at what they do and truly inspiring.

What are your personal favorite blogs, why?
Fashion Toast is my all time favorite. It was the first blog I visited when I learned about style and fashion blogs.
Love Aesthetics is a really cool blog. I love minimalism and Ivania's blog is the perfect example.
What do you do when you're not blogging?
Shopping. Eating. Sleeping. Partying. Working. Learning. I think that narrows it down, haha.

Any advice for anyone who wants to start her/his own blog?
I'm no expert on blogging but starting a blog isn't easy. Commitment is really important. Posting
everyday isn't necessary either. And your blog is a reflection of you, say what you want and feel not everyone has to like it.

She is the girl who admits that weird and different is her thing. A 15 year old high school student who doesn't like to dress up to school, but has a really different and effortless fashion sense. She's also lucky to have the opportunity to travel to different countries(you get to see all her travel diaries in her blog whilst you sit right there being all envious). As you read through, you will find the way she be herself. Her true self! 

Tell me about yourself.
I'm Michelle Ho and I'm 15. Currently residing in Los Angeles. I'm originally from Malaysia and I moved to US a year ago. I have that passion in fashion blogging and photography which is kinda odd in the area I live because I can never find anyone that's practically have a huge interest in those(only when I step out to somewhere near downtown). I blog about my outfits, travel experience, and my personal life in http://just-bemyself.blogspot.com/ and I sometime cracks about jokes that's not-so-really funny(I do rant about my school life too). I simple adore anything that's original and full of creativity, which is why I can never have a perfect drawing(if you get what I mean). When I go to school, I go along with pullovers and skinnys, but not fancy and layerings(this is me). 
How would you describe your style?
Variable is the word to describe, but I'm somehow more into casual and preppy. I'm never that kind of girl who has the style that's depending on their mood. I don't know why but my mood is always the same and it will never affect my style. That's me. Typical Michelle.
How did BEMYSELF start?
When I moved to LA, the first thing I do is share all my photos in Facebook. Then, photography kinda attracted me. So, I created a blog to share about my daily life and some other inspirations I got from others. Few months later, I was inspired by a blogger who is really into Japanese fashion and I figured out I could do something different by creating my own outfits so I thought of making my blog into a fashion blog instead. 

What do you hope to achieve with BEMYSELF?
Getting more loyal readers of course. The loveliest thing is seeing one of the comment contains more than 50 words and the one who wrote it, is your loyal reader(I feel loved to have them)! Also, not to mention work opportunities and internships. 
Who usually take your pictures?
My sister, who is just a 12 year old girl. I personally think that she has the talent on photography too. She also owns a blog: http://different-daisies.blogspot.com/.

What camera are you using for the pictures?
Nikon D700 with a AF-S 24-70mm lens.

Few things you really love about the place you live.
The atmosphere around me. It's very beautiful to have all the trees and other green living things surrounding your house. What I also love about is the distance between my house and the town(darn near to the mall is a good thing, so don't judge)!

Which is your favorite fashion designer at this moment, why?
Marc Jacobs! Amazing designs and collections! Always have and will be my favorite!! 
What are your personal favorite blogs, why?
Pale division by Willabelle Ong, Gary Pepper by Nicole Warne, Ordinary People by Alyssa, and A Go-go by Jennifer Humphrey. What I love about them is the photos in their blogs and the way the express everything throughout the photos. I also love reading their stories and I couldn't love more about their style! 

What do you do when you're not blogging?
I procrastinate on my homework. and sometimes when I'm bored I draw or either read! I also love playing with my dad's camera when I have some spare time too. Getting inspirations from blogs also counts too, I guess. Well, I love browsing through blogs by blogs and just look at the photos and get fascinated by it.
Any advice for anyone who wants to start her/his own blog?
Be confident about starting a blog! It's not really hard as long as you go through it, because you'll find it fun and you'll make it as your hobby as soon as you're addicted with it. Make sure to be very original, the more original you are the more people will try to imitate you(this is a good thing). Try to go along with it as soon as you get to a certain of followers and also ask for some opinions from your readers(they are always helpful). Well, you will also get some negative/contemptible comments from others. So, just ignore and don't give a crap about it(some others human being have no life), because the more you care the more 'hates' they give.
