I have decided to start a new series on my blog called Meet the Blogger, hence the title of this post. Each Friday, we will meet a new blogger through a post of his/her choosing or a Q&A-style post. Today, we are meeting the beautiful Rachel Dahl from À LA MODEST where you will find everything you need to know when it comes to vintage fashion. So without any further ado, Rachel take it away!
1. Please introduce yourself and your blog.
Hi! My name is Rachel Dahl, and I am the gal behind À LA MODEST, “Uplifting Beauty and Fashion.” I am married and with child… hehe. I am expecting my baby this November!
2. What features or topics do you cover on your blog?
The blog has evolved to cover many different topics as time went on! I know many bloggers can relate to this. I started covering conservative or modest fashion with an indie, alternative, or vintage vibe to it. I then covered movies, music, faith, philosophies, and art in relation to modest fashion. However since modesty could mean so many things and is highly misunderstood, I began writing with the intention of instead inspiring women to be more confident and replacing their insecurities with inspiration.
3. Describe your style in three words.
Flattering, girly, and vintage.
4. What do you wear for a night out?
High heels with something black and glamorous for that added mystery!
5. Who are your style icons?
Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, Victoria Beckham, Sharin Foo (of Raveonettes)…. basically people whom I want to look and dress like!
6. What item are you coveting for Fall/Winter?
Anything with fur and knee high boots and tights
7. What has been your proudest blogging moment?
I think my biggest accomplishment would have to be when I was invited to be the guest speaker at a local high school for their fashion show, hosted by a former Miss Maryland. It was awesome.
8. If you could grab coffee with any blogger, who would it be?
Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes! She’s one of my earliest inspirations.
I hope you enjoyed today’s Meet the Blogger post. Where else can you find Rachel? I’m glad you asked! Here are the links to her other social media:
