Christy Bucklow talks fashion and inspiration with upcoming Leeds blogger, Bridie, who quite frankly has the most gorgeous autumnal feed we‘ve ever laid eyes on.
Who are you?
I’m Bridie. I’m 25 and reside in Leeds where I’ve lived all my life!
What do you do?
I work freelance so I do a bit of everything! I’m an online influencer, content creator, blogger, freelance writer, and as of recently, an online stylist.
Favourite shops or brands?
I’m such a high street kind of girl! I could write a dissertation on the sheer volume of shops I hold high and mighty. A few of my faves are: Topshop, ASOS, Bershka, Zara, Weekday, Monki, Nobody’s Child, and & Other Stories. If I was wealthy enough to splurge on designer brands it’d most definitely have to be Miu Miu, Sezane, Gucci, Isabel Marant, Alexa Chung, House of Holland, and Lulu Guinness.
Who would you love to collaborate with?
The dream would be any of the above brands, especially Topshop or ASOS. I’d probably sell my soul to raid Topshop personal shopping and give my verdict on the new trends. Realistically, though, I’d probably opt more for the likes of Dominoes, Jet2 or Ticketmaster. Purely because I love pizza, holidays, and gigs!
Who, or what inspires you?
I think life as a whole inspires me, because it’s how you choose to see it. Venturing out, travelling, finding hidden beauty and photographing it, listening to people and educating yourself, connecting with others – that all inspires me. On top of that, in terms of my work, it’s seeing people boss their career with a steadfast attitude. Other bloggers inspire me. Musicians inspire me. Television inspires me. The past inspires me; so does the future. Designers inspire me. Street style too. There’s just so much around me that spurs me on and allows me to create my individual image! What I love the most is that I can nip to the supermarket, flick through a magazine, browse a shop window, and instantly I’ll have new ideas flashing through my mind that I can’t wait to put into action, and into outfits!
