MFB Crush: Shannon from GBO Fashion by Tiffany

Monday, August 05, 2013
Who doesn't LOVE Shannon from GBO Fashion?? I have had the opportunity of meeting her in person and she is just as beautiful and hilarious as she is on her blog! My favorite part about her outfit posts is that she allows you to rate them.

How did you come to choose your blog name? Any special meaning?
The name of my blog has major amounts of deeply rooted sentimental value. Growing up, my three sisters and I developed a little rating system to give each other quick, brutally honest feedback on how we looked. The rating system was GBO - Do I look GOOD, BAD, or OK? When we grew up and moved away from each other, we still wanted to be able to rate each other’s outfits. And that’s how GBO was born!

How would you best describe your personal style?
Classic, girly, and put-together.

What do you love the most about yourself and why?
I love that I don’t take myself too seriously! I think it’s important to be able to laugh at yourself and not worry too much about what other people think.

Which current fashion trends to you love at the moment?
I love the neon trend, polka dots, bold stripes, ankle boots, and peplum!

Where are your top five places to shop?
Top 5 places I shop at: Forever 21, H&M, Target, ModCloth, and Ruche.
Top 5 places I WISH I shopped: J.Crew, Zara, Anthropologie, Kate Spade, and Madewell.

What are some key pieces in your closet that tie your wardrobe together? What can't you live without?
My blazers always seem to pull things together. They are a staple for sure. I couldn’t live without my mid-height pointy-toe black pumps. They’re actually comfy! And I also always find myself grabbing for my black faux leather jacket. It seems to work with just about anything!

What’s your go-to outfit?
Super skinny jeans, heels, and a loose fitting top with a messy tuck-in.

What is your least favorite style trend of all-time?
LOTS of stuff from the 80’s. Let’s just leave it at that.

Who are your fashion icons?
Oh, man! I have a bunch. Ultimate faves: Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Onassis, Rachel Bilson, Olivia Palermo, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Sienna Miller, Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr, Nicole Richie, Emma Stone, and sometimes – yes – Taylor Swift.

Who/what/where do you draw from for your fashion inspiration?
I draw my fashion inspiration from my fashion icons, magazines, other fashion blogs, and, of course, PINTEREST.

What is one fashion tip you would like to share with Clothed Much readers?
To remember that we all receive inspiration that affects our fashion choices, so don’t be afraid to learn from others whose style you admire. I’m shameless when it comes to observing other people’s style and then incorporating the aspects I like into my own outfit choices.

Thank you so much, Shannon! Don't forget to check out her blog GBO Fashion!
