Frequently Asked Questions
My name is An Trieu. I’m the blogger behind this blog that you’re reading, Style & Senses.
‘What do you do for work right now?
I’m currently blogging, creating digital content, managing all of my social media, and running all the business aspects behind it.
‘What are your top 3 favorite outfits you’ve ever worn?’
My answer to this question changes all the time, but as of March 5, 2021, looking back to all of my photos on Instagram, here are my top 3: this outfit, this outfit, and this outfit.
‘What inspires you the most when styling your outfits?’
I style my outfits around new clothing pieces that I’ve acquired. New pieces that inspire new looks for me could just be a simple tank top or a thrift find. Most of the time though, it depends on how I feel that day. I look up for the weather, think of where I’ll be, what I’ll be doing, and who I get to see that day to style my outfit. I change out 10 times in the morning to make sure I wear clothes that I FEEL the most me that day. Otherwise, it’s a bad and uncomfortable day for me. My closet consists of lots of basics and pieces that I often reach for, so it makes styling an outfit a lot easier I find.
‘If you could choose any jobs you want, what would it be?
I knew from day 1 of my blogging journey that I wanted to run my own business making or creating something. It’s a long way to get there, but with blogging, I am building a foundation and an audience base while learning about the business side of things.
