Elodie: I had been reading blogs for a few years before actually taking the plunge and start my own. I really wanted a place on the internet that I could use as a diary, a portfolio and an inspiration board, and that is how I came up with Elle Yeah. I love the fact that sharing my inspiration, my outfits or my favorite trends with the rest of the world is only a click away, but whenever I hit a bit of slump, I just remember why I started my blog in the first place.
SBU: What advice would you give rookie bloggers for building a successful blog?
E: Firstly, make sure your blog looks appealing. Don't overdo it on the design. Instead, keep it clean and easy to read. Obviously, you can have the best quality photographs and the clearest blog in the blogosphere, without a good content, it is not worth anything. So get typing! Also, don't let the follower count gets you down. Chances are, you have a lot more readers that just don't have a google account, or simply don't use this feature on theirs. Instead, you should look at your stats and comments. Sometimes you'll see the same names over and over again in your comments. These are your readers, not the ones who followed, hoping to be followed back. Last but not least, never lose sight of who you are, and what your blog is all about. Freebies might be nice, and being invited to fancy events is definitely a plus, but always remember why you started blogging in the first place and most importantly… HAVE FUN!
E: I would describe my personal style as classic with a twist. Indeed, I am not one to take a lot of risks when it comes to fashion, but I do like spicing my outfits up with accessories, jewelry, or even makeup!
E: Believe it or not, my sister is actually my biggest source of inspiration. She has an amazing eye for fashion, and always seems to be a step forward. She spots trends earlier than magazines do, and it is not rare for me to talk about a certain must-have item, only to realize it has been sitting in her closet for months! Some other ones worth mentioning would be Audrey Hepburn, for her class, Olivia Palermo, Blake Lively, and my fellow bloggers of course!
SBU: Tell us something about yourself that we wouldn't know just by following your blog…
E: Not many people online know this, but I sing and also play the guitar. In fact, if you were to ask me what my most precious possession was, I probably wouldn't be able to make up my mind between my Mulberry oversized Alexa, and my 2001 Fender Telesonic electric guitar.

There's nothing like an easy-to-wear, versatile piece that makes you look and feel cool and chic in one fell swoop. That's exactly what I loved about the look Kim K rocked in the picture above, which inspired me to wear an office-appropriate version of a striped maxi dress. I love the way it turned out... what do you all think?
the back detail makes my heart go pitter-patter...
