Woooot. My first interview. Say hi to the girlies behind Stylestalker. Hot to trot.
Millions of blogs and websites are dedicated to following star ensembles. Praising them. Fugging them. Inspiring fashion die hards across the globe.
However, none of them take it to the next level like Sue-Ann (Virgoen/Libra) & Rach (Gemini) from Stylestalker. These rockers take celeb style to the peeps by translating their fave looks into their own wearable, affordable designs. I wanted to know more. So I got the story and asked them ‘What’s on . .?’.
It takes balls to live your dream. Hopefully this sassy duo inspire you to follow yours. And buy some of their gear. I love this zip skirt. Smokin.
SA. We are the ultimate stylestalkers. It started about 2 years ago when Rachel and I were working together and were constantly on all the fashion blogs ( Face Hunter, The Sartorialist etc), wireimage, getty images checking out what people wore trying to get inspiration for ourselves. This coupled with the fact that there was nothing in Australia that we wanted to wear (that we could afford) led to the idea.
