WCBC had an amazing intern join the team in February and it is time that I introduce her! Meet Bree everyone!
Tell us a little bit about yourself! Where are you from? Where are you going to school? What are you studying?
My name is Bree Quiachon, a 21-year old, from a northwest suburb of Chicago (Elgin, Illinois to be exact). I have always had a love for the hustle and bustle of the city life and I moved to Chicago to go to school for Fashion Business and Marketing at Columbia College. I am currently finishing the end of my junior year and will be graduating in May 2019.
What is your personal blog about?
My blog () is about all things fashion, travel, and lifestyle. I love to shop TjMaxx, Nordstrom Rack, online— basically anywhere, where I can get a good deal with unique pieces. Don’t get me wrong, I have spent a decent amount of money on full priced items, but there is something about the mission to find cute articles of clothing for a good deal that brings my heart joy (and wallet)! I like to share my advice and thoughts with my readers of how to shop smart but still have a cute sense of style.
What inspired you to start blogging?
At first, my blog was strictly a creative outlet to start posting my work and build my portfolio for school and future job purposes. Being a college student and surrounded by so many creative and talented individuals, I became inspired to put all my work together. I can definitely say my style has evolved and I finally have a certain “look” and aesthetic to my work and my blog. After a couple of months of taking OOTD pictures, a friend of mine had suggested that I turn my portfolio into a blog. I was excited about the idea and didn’t realize how much truly goes into it!
Who are some of your favorite bloggers?
I get so much inspiration from several bloggers:
Olivia Rink (): Olivia is originally from Indiana but graduated from a huge state school, University of Kentucky. I consider Olivia to be one of my “peers” and role models, she is quite the inspiration on how much she has grown since I first started following her blog. She has the best fashion senses and advice on all things beauty, wellness, and life!
With Love from Kat (https://withlovefromkat.com/): Kat is a California based fashion and travel blogger. Kat’s life story is what basically I aspire to be in life, a New York City girl who eventually moved out to live her life to the fullest in Venice Beach, California.
Bre Sheppard (http://bresheppard.com/) Bre is a Washington based fashion blogger. This adorable, 24-year-old is all about shopping for deals! Being a college student, I love being able to relate to these full-time bloggers. On top of blogging, Bre also works full-time for a merchandising and marketing company. Which is something that I also plan on doing when I graduate from college!
Cella Jane (https://cellajane.com/): Becky is the cutest mom blogger, based out of Kansas City. One day I aspire to be as fit and fashionable when I become a mom. Not to mention, dress up my kids as adorable as hers! #momgoals
What is your favorite food?
7-year-old Bree would say chicken nuggets and french fries BUT college Bree has definitely been living off of Pasta for the past couple of years. Take me on a date to Noodles and Co. or Vapianos and I am YOURS. It is safe (or dangerous) to say that I have found a new found love for carbs.
What is your post-college dream job?
I definitely see myself blogging part-time. The beauty with Fashion and is that you can really go about it in so many ways. My mind has definitely been all over the place with where I would like to be and what I want to be doing after graduation but as of right now, I can see myself being a Fashion Director and living life in California or New York! I recently just accepted a summer internship for a Social Media/PR position to work for Modern Luxury Magazine and I am excited to see where I go from here.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In between school, work, and blogging I definitely love to wind down, relax, and spend some quality time with myself, my family, and my friends. I am definitely a “girly girl.” I love to go shop, get my nails done, have a movie night with my closest of girl friends, chill with a face mask on, find a new neighborhood to explore, & eat at the cutest and most delicious foods at a new restaurants.
What is your dream travel destination?
Definitely, GREECE. I have recently just traveled abroad in London, England for a semester and I absolutely fell in love with the United Kingdom and Europe. I was amazed with the old ancient history of the streets, the food, and the people. Greece is definitely somewhere I would love to check off my bucket list. I plan on going there as a graduation present with my family. Fingers crossed!
