Tell us a little about yourself:
Kayci: As a fashion merchandising major, I aspire to be in fashion show production or own my own lingerie store. I have an obsession with online shopping…more like an addiction. A typical snapshot of my day would be me jamming out to Lana del Rey cuddled up with my laptop, working on our blog.
Ali: My athletic roots have made me the unique combination of fashionable and sporty. I often find myself torn between going to the gym and taking off my thoroughly planned outfit or socializing and displaying my creation for the remainder of the day. I also love to draw, paint, or simply create things.
When did you start your blog? January 2014
Why did you decide to start blogging? We felt that a blog would be a good way to get our names out there and both demonstrate and practice our fashion-related talents. The blog was also a way for us to publish our creative styling techniques to the young fashion world.
Where are your favorite places to shop in RVA? The two of us tend to vary in how we style items, but together our favorite places include American Apparel, Need Supply Co., and RVA thrift shops.
Top 3 favorite blogs to read?
Kayci: “…cos it’s The Bee’s Knees,” “River City Chic,” and “Song of Style”
Ali: “Frsh Squeezed,” “Mr. Kate,” and “The BLVD Paradigm”
How would you describe your personal style?
Kayci: Feminine grunge with a focus on intricate accessories.
Ali: Tomboy/androgynous, street style. What has been one of your favorite experiences blogging has lead to? The two of us were at a social event and a stranger began to express his admiration for us. We were puzzled at first until he identified us as the Not So Billionaire Girls. The fact that we were being recognized and acknowledged for our hard work meant a lot to us. We love our followers!!
If you could give any advice to other bloggers what would it be? You never know what you can do until you try! We always had the idea of a blog in the back of our minds but finally taking the initiative to create our vision was the biggest and most important step. Overcoming your fear of failure will always lead to success.
