We met with London-based lifestyle blogger Dorka Molnar for an quick chat in downtown Budapest. Visit her blog www.thesense.co to get inspired.
Tell us a little about yourself?
Hi my name is Dorka, I’m from Budapest, I’m 26 years old and I’ve been blogging for 6 years now. I went to fashion school to study to be a fashion stylist.
How would you describe your style?
I’m definitely minimal. I don’t like accessories, I don’t like colors or prints but I’m always wearing something feminine. I like to layer, I like to find some details that are making the outfit but it still has to be something really simple.
How do you find inspiration for your outfits?
I usually browse Instagram. I’m only using Instagram for inspiration so if I have some free time I just go up there and look at what other girls are wearing.
Who is your favorite blogger?
My absolute favorite is Harper and Harley. She is an australian girl.
What’s your next buy?
My next buy is probably a pair of kitten heels, which is an absolutely hideous thing to wear, but I just fell in love with a pair and I’m saving up.
What’s your go-to piece that always works for you?
Definitely something black, little black dresses and anything black that can be layered. Sweaters, tunics, leather pants. I’m pretty much into monochrome.
Where do you usually shop?
I usually shop online because I really like items that are not on every corner. I’m usually spending hours and hours looking for designer vintage pieces or little brands. I’m pretty much a maniac so I have a package arriving every other day.
What is the most embarrassing outfit you ever wore?
I’m embarrassed to even think about it. I was 16 and thought it was a really good idea to wear cowboy boots with fish-net tights. I think I was wearing rainbow-colored fake eyelashes with it. But I felt good so no regrets.
What do you do in your free-time?
I read a lot, I’m a real bookworm actually. I’ve read thousands and thousands of books. I also love art galleries, museums and I’m a big theatre fan.
What is your advice to people who find it hard to put outfits together?
I think the internet has infinite options and I would absolutely recommend the Passion 4 Fashion App, because it’s a really genuine source of legit information and help if you want to put an outfit together that really fits your personality and body type.
What’s your advice to someone who wants to start blogging about fashion?
Always stay yourself because it’s really hard to live up to all the expectations when your are comparing yourself to the people who have already made it in the industry. Just give yourself time and space so you can grow into whatever you put as a goal.
