Do you have any piercing or tattoos? I have three tattoos — a heart, my horoscope sign and the words “Fede. Speranza, Amore.” I also have my tragus and ears pierced.
Do you have any fashion influences? Yes. I am a blogger so most of my fashion influences are other personal style bloggers that I have found throughout the years. One of my favorites is Elin Kling who writes for stylebykling. Her style is a combination of boyish and chic — I love it. I also look to Olivia Palermo and Giovanna Battaglia for inspiration as well.
