There’s nothing like connecting with someone over a cup of coffee at a cozy neighborhood shop. In fact, we’ve been fortunate enough to find some of the most innovative coffee-culture purveyors around! So in honor of #NationalCoffeeDay, we want to know:

What city are you in and what is your go-to neighborhood coffee-shop?

Step inside the world of our new favorite knitwear designer, Margaret O’Leary and take a virtual tour of her new Nolita boutique…

PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF!

I am Taliah Ferguson, fashion blogger at fashionwashere.net. I like the real aspect of fashion and not so much the overtly avant-garde. Maybe once in a blue. 

HOW DO YOU CELEBRATE PERSONAL STYLE? 

I celebrate personal style by my mood. It’s that simple. I think if you really look at my style pattern, you will see a medley of everything. From edgy to retro to girly, I can be all over the place but I would say maintaining a feminine air about your personal style really shows your je ne sais quoi. 

WHAT WAS YOUR REASONING BEHIND STARTING A BLOG? 

To finally show my friends that I can help them with styling their wardrobes…Haha! No but really, to finally release that deep affinity I had for fashion and the editorial world. My ultimate goal was to eventually monetize it and provide inspiration.

WHAT IS THE SOCIAL MEDIA TOOL THAT YOU FIND MOST EFFECTIVE IN PROMOTING YOUR BLOG AND HOW DO YOU USE IT?

It’s a mix between Instagram and Pinterest. Unfortunately, I don’t use them enough. Chictopia is great too, but for possibly earning revenue and more blog hits, IG and Pinterest is where it’s at. I try to flood Instagram in a short span of a day or two and then take a break to have a good balance. 

WHAT IS ONE QUESTION YOU WISH PEOPLE ASKED YOU MORE OFTEN? What else do I love besides fashion? I appreciate when people notice my love for fashion and style, but at  the end of the day I have other interests. I would love for people to ask me about the art of loving and not judging others. Promoting healthy relationships and most of all my stand on women being equal and having important roles in this world. 

TALK US TO ABOUT YOUR LEADERSHIP - HOW HAS PURSUING YOUR PASSION FOR FASHION INSPIRED HOW YOU LEAD?

I believe there are different forms of leadership. Some leaders move in silence and some are more vocal. With my blog, I have a platform to share my voice (I can be an introvert sometimes) and talk about how to be yourself through fashion. I tend to lead people in the direction of being an all around, multi-faceted person. So trying your hand at fun recipes or creating a DIY storage for your jewelry. Its all about leading by example or sometimes just sharing stories and trends from the heart. It comes across as authentic and therefore people see confidence. I don’t think you can be a leader and lack confidence.
