Your name: Bailey Jo Yenglin
Instagram name: instagram.com/yenglinb
Where are you located? Near west-end Richmond.
Tell us a little about yourself: Last year I graduated from GVSU (Michigan) in advertising and PR. I was offered a marketing position at a firm with offices in Richmond, so here I am! My boyfriend moved with me for the same company, and we love it.
When did you start your blog? About a month ago. I’ve been using Instagram as my fashion outlet for a year now (celebrating 10,000 followers soon!), but BaileyJo gives me an outlet to write and post more pictures.
Why did you decide to start blogging? I’ve been asked many times to help create outfits for friends. I also get asked quite frequently where I buy clothes, so a blog seemed like the best way to express this side of myself.
Where are your favorite places to shop in RVA? I’m still learning my way around, but I’m obsessed with Stony Point. It has my favorite stores (BCBG and Aldo), I get to bring Bear (my Yorkie-Pug), and I can get frozen yogurt and Starbucks—all in one location!
How would you describe your personal style? Feminine, classic, dressy, and trendy.
Who is your style inspiration? Magazine editorials, other bloggers, my mom, people around town, friends—inspiration is everywhere for me.
What has been one of your favorite experiences blogging has lead to? I just received my first offer for a partnership with my blog which is extremely flattering (I thought it would be at least a year). Most of all, my Instagram followers always say things that are so nice and complimentary—I read and reread comments all the time!
If you could give any advice to other bloggers what would it be? Be yourself—blog because you’re passionate about something.
