WYV: How do you describe your style? What informs it?
GG: I always think of myself as quite modern vintage, so I love the 1950s silhouette but I have more modern hair and makeup and I style my vintage-inspired dresses in a more modern way too. I love the look because those are the body parts I always loved showing off — my great chest, shapely hips and slightly smaller waist. It’s always been how I’ve liked to dress, but now there’s much better clothes for me to choose from!
WYV: What inspired your brand/blog/project?
GG: I was really bored with my life, due to having a part time job and never really having a fun hobby. People always asked me what makeup I was wearing or where I got my clothes from, so one day I just set up She Might Be Loved and now it’s my three-year blog anniversary next month! I’ve managed to turn it into a career — She Might Be Social is my social media management business. It was honestly just my own interests and what I loved in life that inspired me, and they still do inspire me. I am never bored and now I have such an interesting life where I can travel and work on the go and be my own boss with my own rules. I never thought I’d be this happy working!
WYV: Who are your three top StyleCrushes?
GG: There’s no one I really look to for style; it’s more of a collective of everything I see online. At the minute, I really love vintage-styled dresses!
WYV: Where do you shop? What are your favorite brands/designers?
GG: At the minute I have a lot of Lindybop, with regular pieces from ASOS, Newlook, Yours Clothing and Evans, but I mostly wear my more stand-out pieces from Karina Dresses (an American-based company) or my new favorite, Collectif.
WYV: How do you wear your voice?
GG: Loud, confident and sassily.
