Fashionista Spotlight: Lissa Kahayon

Fashion blogger and trendsetter, Melissa Andrea (or better known as Lissa) Kahayon's amour for fashion and maximalism is evident in her blog, (which I love to bits!). We have always perceived her style as to being fun, whimsical and clever, which is a no-brainer; however, she puts another adjective to it; find out later as we move further on.

She is also a popular chictopia personality, having gained a hundred thousand chic points and two thousand followers. While these information about her appeal you more, let us get to know this fashionista better with the little scoops we have in this interview:

 How do you put an outfit together?

It depends on my mood and my inspiration for the day. Sometimes I plan it but most of the time, I have "light bulb" moments and I know what to put together.

The most versatile item in your closet is

The basics of course.

The fact that it's constantly changing which means there's always a challenge to experiment and try out different looks.

 What three items could you not leave home without?

My wallet, cellphone and lipstick

 What made you start a blog?

I started 3 years ago and at that time, I was still studying. I used Chictopia as my daily inspiration for my choice of outfits in school and eventually I joined.

 One word that best describes your style

To own an Hermes Birkin!
