Here at EGO we love our squad, and because of this we thought that 1-2 times a month we should introduce you to some fierce fashionista's who love our shoes. Starting with Laura Rogan in the last Q&A we are now onto another. Take a seat, grab a brew and get ready to learn some facts on the amazin', Sophie Allen.
1) IN THE WORDS OF TAKE ME OUT, ‘WHAT’S YA' NAME AND WHERE DO YA’ COME FROM…?’
My name is Sophie and I’m from Manchesterrrrrr *crowd claps and wahoos*
2) WHAT WAS THE INSPO BEHIND YOUR BLOG?
I soon realised how fashion is ever evolving and changing, so I came up with the name The Fashion Rubiks, based on a Rubik’s Cube. See how there’s only a few people who can master the technique? We’ll it’s the same with fashion.
3) HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU BEEN HITTIN’ THE WEB ?
Hmmm I began blogging in my first year of uni so like five years ago but I put everything on hold to concentrate on my studies. So for the past 18 months has been my ‘phase 2’ should we call it. I try blog at least twice a week but update my social feeds on the reg!
4) DO YOU THINK YOU’LL CONTINUE TO BLOG IN THE FUTURE?
Yeah definitely, I work in digital marketing myself so I can see how the industry is evolving and becoming a lot more online focused. Speaking to bloggers everyday and hearing first hand from clients what’s expected, it would be stupid for me not to.
5) YOUR BEST FASHION TIP FOR THIS SEASON
For this season and every other season my one tip is to BE YOURSELF! If you wouldn’t wear floral prints, or a baseball cap don’t do it just because it’s on trend. You should be you know matter what the magazines are telling you.
6) WHAT’S YOUR FAVE TREND OF THE MOMENT?
I’m all about minimal luxe at the mo. I live in oversized sweats so this trend was pretty much designed for me!
7) HEELS OR BOOTS?
8) WHICH ARE YOUR FAVOURITE EGO SHOES?
Erm EVERY pair! All the Perspex heel boots are right up my street – you’ll be seeing me sporting a few pairs around London Fashion Week.
9) NAME SOME FUNNY FACTS ABOUT YOURSELF
Ok so my most funniest fact is I used to be a cheerleader. As in a pom-pom shaking, leotard wearing cheerleader!
10) FAVOURITE MAN CRUSH?
Simon Neil from Biffy Clyro is my ultimate man crush and has been since I was about 16. There’s something about that Scottish accent and hair that always has me swooning
11) OKAY, WE ALL HAVE ONE….GO ON, WHO’S YOUR FAVOURITE WOMAN CRUSH?
I definitely have more than one, super New Yorker Youtuber Hey Claire, Taylor Momson, Angelina Jolie and my ultimate fave VS Angel Taylor Hill.
12) WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
I’m a massive gym bunny so if I’m not at work then you’ll find me by the squat rack.
13) WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE TO SHOP?
. I Hmm I’m all about online shopping really, I like to shop at independent brands rather than massive labels. Native Youth and House of Sunny are both killin’ it this season.
14) ANY TIPS FOR THOSE NEWBIE BLOGGERS OUT THERE?
I love this question, bloggers literally ask me this every day. My one tip is to stay true to yourself. Don’t work with a brand just for a freebie or payment. Stay true to who you are and your style and don’t sell yourself out. I also do a SEO blogger advise post each month on my blog. You should check it out!
15) ANY NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS?
Nope not this year, I decided I didn’t need a new year to make any changes.
16) WHAT DO YOU LOVE BEST ABOUT EGO?
The quality! You can pick up the latest pair of boots or heels for a fraction of the price you’d pay on the high-street.
17) WHICH EMOJI BEST DESCRIBES YOU?
Mine’s got to be the cheeky side smile. It’s always in my top 5 most used
18) FAVE SONG OF THE MOMENT?
Anything by Childish Gambino, I love driving home from work with Sweat Pants on full blast pretending I can rap.
19) DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN ONE SENTENCE…
20) THE BIG ONE: HERE AT EGO WE SECRETLY LOVE JB(JUSTIN BIEBER), DO YOU?
So it’s not just me?! I’ve completely been converted to a Blieber! Anything cheesy pop I usually HATE but I love hitting the high notes to Sorry!
