Skinnydip: Blogger Of The Month


So if you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter  then you will know that after my shoot for the Novemeber issue of Company Magazine i have become pretty obsessed with Skinnydip! I was therefore so honoured to be chosen as their 'Blogger Of The Month' and had great fun answering this interview! You can check out the full feature here - i have put some of my favourite answers and intro below! 

We first discovered Sabrina Carder in our favourite fashion monthly Company Magazine. Sabby C was featured in a shoot with our classic embellished perspex clutch bag for their November Issue, now we check her blog ‘The Young Eccentric’ for our daily fix of Sabby’s style. Blogging mainly about fashion and her personal style there is a lovely mix of photography and everyday musings.

The 20 year old film student (who is also identical twin) is from just outside London and is definitely a blogger to watch. Her outfit choices could be labeled ‘eccentric' but we think they are inspirational. If you want to avoid wardrobe envy, look away now…

What inspired you start your blog?

Hearing the phrase “Sabrina, what ARE you wearing!?” by most of my friends and family ever since I started to dress myself may have had a slight influence on why I started my blog. I love the fact that I can freely express my style and by doing so it has given me a lot more confidence to wear what I want and not to care about what others think.

Describe your style.

My style is very eclectic it often goes between an eccentric grandma and a grunge tomboy. I love mixing styles and also have a great soft spot for 90’s nostalgia. I never plan what I’m going to wear so you never know what I’m going to turn up looking like, or from what decade.
What’s been your best vintage find?

I recently purchased an awesome vintage embroidered silk bomber jacket for the bargain price of £7! More to the point it makes me feel completely bad arse (Ryan Gosling in Drive has nothing to do with this….)

What’s your favourite item from the Skinnydip AW13 collection?

I’m loving the Silver Spike Headphones! I wear my headphone around my neck most of the time, the bling factor of these would complete any outfit!

What is your most treasured possession?

The collection of jewellery and clothing I kept of my nan’s.

Who was the last person you chose to follow on Instagram?

Lily Collett (LILYCOLLETT) she makes the most awesome handmade matching top and bottom sets in amazing retro/vintage fabrics.
What is your dream career?

I would love to do a job where I can dabble in and out of different media platforms. I have great respect for Ferne Cotton, Alexa Chung and Jameela Jamil and their numerous different ventures and talents, I would love to follow in the their footsteps. I also have a strange dream of going on a tour with a band as I love music and want to live on one of those touring buses! 

If you were invisible for a day you would…

I would madly dance around a food shop eating as much yummy food as I could.
