Rena Heis has always been fascinated by fashion, ever since she was a little girl. She studied hard and got degree in psychology, which is her second passion. Then she decided to develop her writing talent further, so she started Dressed With Soul. She is sharing her fashion style and ideas frequently with the world, you can read her blog in both German and English, cool indeed.
When did you start blogging and how did you come to this idea?
I started blogging on 2012-12-31 after I read a book about reading the lines of one’s hand. Corresponding to this book I should live out my writing talent and therefore I decided on the same day to start a blog.
Who is your style icon? Why?
I like e. g. the style of Olivia Palermo because she is creative and wears colourful outfits. But I think I don’t have a style icon in general.
How do you describe your personal style? What is your inspiration?
So sorry, but I don’t have any idea how to describe my personal style as I wear many different pieces and styles. I get my inspiration through the many blogs I read 🙂
What is the essential pieces you must have in your closet?
I assume my black pants and white shirts are my essential pieces as I wear these pieces over and over again.
How often do you post? How do you come up with post ideas?
I post regularly every three days. I get post ideas through my daily life, the books I read and about what I’m thinking generally.
What is the biggest challenge for you in fashion blogging?
The biggest challenge for me in fashion blogging are for sure the pictures!
What is the greatest satisfaction of being a fashion blogger?
I don’t know if I’m a real fashion blogger but the greatest satisfaction in the context of blogging is writing down what bothers me and the best thing is that I get even lovely comments to my texts!
What is the fashion rule you never break?
I try to have a tidy appearence what means that I clean my shoes and that my clothes are clean, too.
What do you splurge on?
I did splurge on some bags, for example from Chanel, Prada and Gucci. Fortunately my dreams in this context came already true. At the moment I don’t do splurge on something but I know for sure this can change very soon.
From your point of view, what is the notable trend for the upcoming season?
I think jeans mini skirts, loafers with metal details and high waisted pants belong to notable trends for the upcoming season.
Do you make money from your blog? Any advice for others?
Honestly I make rarely money with my blog and therefore I don’t have really any advice for others.
What has been your most successful blog post till now and what was it about?
Oh, obviously it was Explainable Widespread Envy post. I wrote about that envy is explainable in my opinion.
How do you see your blog in 5 years?
I don’t know as I learnt in my life that plans often don’t work. If I will be happy with my blog I will still have my blog in 5 years. But if my life develops in another direction and/or I see my blog doesn’t satisfy me longer I will stop to blog.
Do you want to share anything else besides these questions?
Yes, for sure! Do what you like – equal how other people are commenting this!
Designer – I don’t have a favourite designer 🙂
Fashion Brand – At the moment I like Gucci, but there are many other brands I love.
Color – I think red.
Quote – Have fun and be as happy as possible – everything other is senseless.
Way to relax – Blogging, Walking, Reading, Sleeping
