Feature: Tori Thomas!
Here's a feature I've made about one of my VERY best friends and one of the most utterly inspiring people I know! Let's meet Tori!
1. Name: Tori Thomas
2. Age: 22
3. How would you describe your personal style?
I like clean lines and bold colors, with a girly details and a bit of whimsy. In terms of home decor, I like the mix of mid-century modern with great vintage finds. My wardrobe has become much more feminine, but I like to mix it with a bold accents like a pair of bright tights and black (faux) leather boots.
4. What are your current obsessions?
The color aqua, vintage quilts, my new Instax Mini and making granny squares! (Elaine taught me how!)
5. What kinds of crafts and hobbies are your favorites?
I love to knit and create things out of felt. I also like to scrapbook and I've started making mini albums. They're cute and quick to put together!
6. What inspires you most in your art, wardrobe and home decor?
I think the Internet is a huge source of inspiration - I love looking through blogs and Flickr. I keep a file on my desktop of images I have collected, and I also love to look through catalogs and magazines to cut out images I find inspiring!
7. What types of things do you look for when thrifting?
I always looks for vintage sheets, other linens and of course, Pyrex!
8. What are some style goals or things you want to accomplish?
A big style goal I have right now is to make my wardrobe more cohesive. I want to be able to mix and match pieces together, and create a more signature style.
9. If you lived in another decade, what would it be?
Probably the '50s. I love the glamor of it, and that women dressed like women. I would love to go back to that.
10. Do you have any plans to start a blog anytime soon?
Yes I do! It is one of my goals for this year and I am hoping to get it up and running very soon! Until then you can find me here: www.twitter.com/toripastry
