An Interview with Joanna of Only the Marvelous
I am Joanna Ladrido, called JL by everyone else, fashion blogger and full time designer and brandowner of fashion brand Glitterati, here in the Philippines. I love fashion and I love dressing up---it has always been a fashion of mine. I describe my style as bipolar as I have quite an interesting take on fashion, which is very music based. Visit my blog at Only the Marvelous!
What do you do when you're not blogging? What is your job?
Joanna: I am brandowner and fashion designer for Glitterati, an online business that eventually expanded to an actual boutique.
What is your nerdiest hobby?
Joanna: I am the biggest nerd ever. I love learning channels- my TV is glues to National Geographic, Animal Planet and Discovery Channel 24/7 and then I give people random trivia facts from what I learned!
Three things in your closet you cannot live without:
Joanna: 1) My black Chanel 2.55 2) Black heels 3) My Rolex watch I inherited from my mom
3 fun facts about you:
Joanna: 1) I have an intense love for cleanliness. I arrange and organize all the time. 2) Flats (flat shoes) hurt my feet, that is why I run in high heels. 3) I am the most awkward and shy person ever.
Biggest style splurge and/or deal:
Joanna: STYLE SPLURGE: Getting two colors of the same bag in one day, it was my favorite purse (the Marc Jacobs Stam bag)
Are there any style icons that inspire you? Who and how?
Joanna: Edie Sedgwick, Daisy Lowe, Zooey Deschanel... I love the iconoclasts. The girls who challenge the norm and do things their own way.
Do you have a favorite fashion era? What did you love about it?
Joanna: The 1950's. I love how classic, chic and clean the era is. It was a time of rebirth and everything was just so pretty and prissy.
In your opinion, every woman should own:
Joanna: 5 things: A Classic Purse she invested in, a little black dress, to die for heels,lipstick in a shade that suits her and go to glasses for ff days.
Three things that are always in my fridge:
Joanna: Wheatgrass and healthy juices (yes, I JU!), food from Healthy Options (I am recently a health convert) and baby food... (I love baby food desserts!)
People would be surprised to know that I...
Joanna: graduated with Latin Honors. People dismiss me as being a ditz but that's not me. I love fashion and I am here to prove loving fashion and having prior academic achievements are both possible. Being fashionable is a choice.
What's your latest obsession?
Joanna: I have been obsessed with working out, my gym wear have literally replaced clubbing outfits in my closet. I am all for health and fitness now. Rather than crash dieting, I maintain my physique by healthy eating, regular exercise and living healthy.
Your most worn piece of jewelry:
Joanna: My rolex watch from my mom which I inherited from her! I love it!
