Introduce yourself!
Hi my name is Abigail Sterling and I am the creator of the fashion and style blog 'The Fabulous Life of a Natural Disaster"

How would you describe your sense of style?
I would say my style is very eclectic - I truly dress depending on my mood each day! Some days I'll feel more feminine, some days I'll feel more sporty or preppy…. I never know the day before!

Where do you get your inspiration for each look?
I get a lot of inspiration from magazines, movies and of course blogs! My style icons range from Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin and Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy to more modern women like Kate Moss, Nicole Richie, Sienna Miller, Kate Hudson, Ashley Olsen and my all time favorite - Carrie Bradshaw!

What’s your ‘Go-To’ outfit for when you need to get ready in a hurry?
When I need to get ready in a hurry, I usually put on skinny jeans or black leggings, a Hanes tank top, a neutral color slouchy knit sweater and some loafers. I'll throw on some gold necklaces, some sunglasses and I'm good to go!

What are the three favorite things in your closet?
Hmm, that’s a tough one - I don't like to play favorites! If I had to pick, I would have to say a vintage dress that has sequins in the shape of constellations all over it, a pair of vintage Ferragamo heels that my grandmother passed on to me and a simple faux fur vest that I found at Marshalls and wear with everything….

What are some of your favorite shops or websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
I'm really into online shopping right now. I love Zara, ASOS, H&M and Forever 21 for great deals. I'm also finding a lot of fabulous items on Amazon! When I go into stores I absolutely love to vintage and consignment shop - it's one of my favorite things to do!

What fashion or styling tips would you give to someone who wants to improve their sense of style?
Fashion and style is so personal and for me it comes down to what I feel comfortable in, what looks good, fits well and what inspires me. I would start building collages either online or in a sketch book of people, outfits and things you like. That will give you a great idea of colors and silhouettes you are drawn to and relate to. Then it's all about translating it to yourself. Figure out what kind of body type you have - what you want to accentuate and hide. Then find a few key pieces for your wardrobe that you feel really good in - it can be as simple as a classic handbag, a pretty pair of heels or the perfect shade of lipstick. Confidence is key - and a great smile always helps!
