Style Profile...Sara (Collage Vintage), Madrid

I must admit I shot a lot of cute girls for The Styleograph, but Sara's aura is unique. I met her in Madrid and we spent a whole day together, eating typical Spanish food and drinking Mojito and yes, in reality she is at least as likeable as it seems like in the photos. Therefore, I thought it would be cool to do a style profile and get some ideas for exploring the capital of Spain.

Read and follow her blog Collage Vintage here.

How did you first get interested in fashion and why is it important?

I'm interested in fashion since childhood. When I was younger I tried to dress like my mother, changing my outfit 4 or 5 times a day. I love fashion since ever.

What's the aim of your blog / What motivates you?

I really want to share my point of view in terms of fashion with others. Therefore, I love creating my own outfits to inspire other girls how to dress and give them ideas ...and why not get my way in the world of fashion!? My blog is my favorite hobby!

Source of inspiration?

I love streetstyle fashion blogs from other countries, fashion editorials, also old movies inspire me.

Style icons?

Alexa Chung, Rachel Bilson, Miroslava Duma, Clemence Poesy… 

Any fashion rules?

No! In fashion there aren’t any rules for me, I like being risky and trying new things.

What’s the favorite piece of clothing in your closet? 

My black biker jacket!    

Favorite stores in Madrid?

I love vintage stores, one of my favorites is Lotta Vintage (Calle de Hernán Cortés, 9 ) you can find great items there. And of course “El Museo Popular” (Calle de Santa Ana, 12), a furniture store with cool & unique things for your home.

Best Shopping Area?

Malasaña for vintage clothes, and Gran Via for normal shopping.

Favorite place in Madrid?

Retiro Park.

Favorite place to have a night out?

(C/ Covarrubias, 24 - Alonso Martí­nez - Madrid)

Favorite café in your neighbourhood?

Mamma Framboise (C/ Fernando VI, 23 - Madrid), a great place to enjoy the afternoon with coffee and delicious cakes.

Best place to eat?

There are so many! Love Norte y Sur (Calle de Bravo Murillo, 97), Casa Lucio (C/ Cava Baja, 35), Juana la Loca (Plaza Puerta de Moros, 4), Pizzaiolo (C/ Hortaleza, 84)

What would you recommend to somebody visiting Madrid?

Enjoy the city without maps! If you get lost in the city you can be sure to find great places. You need to go to Rastro (A flea market on Sundays), stroll through Retiro Park, taste Spanish Omelet in Juana la Loca and go out at night for experiencing the party life of Madrid.
