Member Spotlight: Freddarling

Tell us about yourself.
Hi! I'm Vicky, I'm 21 and I'm in my third year of an English studies degree at the University of Valencia (I'll graduate next year). Normally, I wear skinny jeans with ballet flats or Converse, oversized sweaters with skirts or dresses and crossbody bags (my favorite is my satchel).
 
Where do you live, and what trends are big there?
I live in Valencia, a coastal town in eastern Spain. My city is the third largest one in Spain (after Madrid and Barcelona) and lately, it's been a hot spot for foreign students. On the streets, I've been seeing lots of army green parkas, ankle booties and circle scarves.
 
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
For my shopping, I love the Spanish brand Zara, and also H&M, Mango and Pull & Bear. What I like about them is that they make the trends available for us “mortals” at a reasonable price. When it comes to high fashion brands, I have a soft spot for Alice + Olivia, Marni, Chloé, Chanel, Valentino and Christian Louboutin.
 
Which celebrity do you think has great style and why?
Lately, I love Lily Collins's style. Also, I'm a huge fan of classic influences like Audrey Hepburn and Katharine Hepburn. Kirsten Dunst, Poppy Delevingne and Kate Bosworth are other favorites because they always know how to mix great fashion brands with more affordable ones.
 
What are your personal aspirations/goals?
I'd like to write novels one day. I love writing, so I would like to collaborate with some kind of fashion magazine or website. Also, I'd enjoy translation. Moving out is also one of my main goals -- I've got my eyes set on London and NYC!
 
How has Polyvore affected your life?
I find myself paying more and more attention to what I wear daily. I love being updated on trends and being less afraid of trying them, thanks to Polyvore. Also, one of my friends told me she loves going shopping with me because I always give her good advice!
 
Describe your personal sense of style.
I'm into classic style with timeless items. I like recycling vintage clothes from my family and try to make them current. Also, I follow the trends, but I always take a pinch and never let myself get too lost in them because I know they are constantly changing. Basically, it's all about feeling comfortable in what I'm wearing and learning what suits me and what doesn't.
 
How would you describe your set style?
They are usually simple with a couple of inspiring pictures, drawings and text. Also, I like my sets to be very visual, so you can see the outfit just as it would look if you were wearing it.
 
How often do you sign on and what is the first thing you do when you sign on?
Probably a couple of times a day, both before leaving the house and after coming back. I check my notifications, publish a set, answer comments, if I have any, and like and comment on the sets I have in my following feed. When I have more time, I check people to follow and try to see what trends are going around.
 
Anything else you would like us to know?
I would like to let you know that I admire your job and what you're doing to bring people's styles together! Keep up the good work and thanks for having me!

I was in Valencia many years ago. I love Spain! It was late summer and I remember the fields of sunflowers I passed as drove.
