“Fashion should be for everyone—thankfully technology is a huge part of making that a reality.”
SNAPETTE: What/who are some of your inspirations?
KIMMYERIN: Trips to Paris in particular, but traveling in general, fashion shows (especially backstage), and my friends!
S: How do you see fashion and technology playing a role in your everyday life?
KE: I love that I have a million ways to access news, pretty pictures, and the kind of art that speaks most loudly to me in an instant thanks to the web and apps like Snapette. I also love how connected I can be to like-minded and/or inquisitive people I otherwise would never have the chance to interact with! Fashion should be for everyone—thankfully technology is a huge part of making that a reality.
S: What are you more likely to splurge on: shoes or bags?
KE: Shoes. Always. I love bags and have to have great ones, but shoes are my everything. I have a dream that one day I’ll get to collaborate on a shoes line.
S: What stores do you follow on the app?
KE: I follow people on Snapette! I love curation and perspective of buyer, but it’s too similar to my own! I’m inclined to know what interests my (potential) blog readers/YouTube subscribers.
S: What is your guilty pleasure?
KE: I don’t find much guilt in pleasure, but I will admit that I do go nuts at sample sales and always feel slightly guilty after spending a wad of cash!
S: What is your favorite feature on Snapette?
KE: The ability to help retailers sell items and other fashionistas gain amazing items by tagging items! So brill, guys. So brill.
S: What are you doing right now (work, school, organizations)?
KE: I work as a stylist and contribute to my blog, KimmyErin.com and YouTube Channel, MissKimmyErin, weekly!
S: What do you aspire to be?
KE: I’m living my dreams!! I’d like to remain a stylist/blogger/vlogger, but I aspire to enrich, empower, and motivate men and women through fashion. I want everyone to take pride in their personal appearance and gain self-confidence in their identity!
S: If you could choose one brand to describe your style, what would it be?
KE: Wow guys, major toughy!! J.Crew and Zara in a mall. Designer? VALENTINO, ESPECIALLY for shoes and handbags. But 3.1 Phillip Lim, Theysken’s Theory and Rag & Bone inspire my purchases constantly.
