Leonie, originally from the Netherlands now based in Vancouver, is a blogger and marketing coordinator. Her blog, The Signature Bow, consists of fashion DIY, trends, recipes and inspirations. Check out our Q&A with Leonie!
1) How long have you been blogging for? What made you start?
I have been blogging for almost 1.5 years. I started one month after moving to Vancouver from the Netherlands. I had been reading blogs for years and I thought this was the perfect moment for (another) fresh start.
2) How would you describe your aesthetic?
My aesthetic is ever-changing and evolving; I appreciate and like trying new styles. I feel easily inspired by a picture or a movie and can get carried away for a while with a certain look. I used to be all about pink, floral and bows (hence the blog name), now I have a thing for black, leather and statement jewelry. I follow trends, but don’t use them as a guideline - I still like to incorporate my own ideas. Whether dressed-up or down, it always has to be feminine. And lots of classic jewelry: my golden bracelets and ring, and chic vintage pieces.
3) Your perfect outfit consists of?
My perfect outfit really depends on my mood, but I always like to throw in ‘a favorite’ of some sort… be it a piece of jewelry, pretty shoes or just comfortable clothing. If it makes me feel good at that moment, it’s perfect.
4) A classic trend you try to incorporate into your style.
This season I feel drawn to the most classic “color” out there: black. An all-black outfit with gold and/or vintage jewelry can look so effortless and chic at the same time. If I could (= would dare), I’d love to walk around all dolled up like in the 40s/50s/60s. But that wouldn’t be very convenient!
5) One thing on your bucket list you have to do.
One thing that has been on my (bucket) list since forever: visiting NYC. Actually traveling in general - there is too much to see in this world to just stay in one place!
