about me / frequently asked questions

Hello! I’m Anabelle!! I started this blog in December 2016 as a way to share my outfits and adventures while living in New York City. I recently moved from Seattle, Washington to Charleston, South Carolina. I’m a huge dress-lover and don’t even own one pair of jeans.

Why did you decide to start Anabelle Kristine?

As previously mentioned, I lived in New York City about a year ago. I lived there from August 2016 until May 2017. Living in NYC was unforgettable! For the first few months of my time there, I attended Parsons The New School for Design. Upon transferring to Manhattan College, I realized that I still wanted fashion to be apart of my life, even though I was leaving fashion school. On top of this – I had wanted to start a blog for so long! I have found so much inspiration from my favorite bloggers (Amber, Julia, and Stephanie) and decided I wanted to join in on the fun. I have always been a huge advocate for dressing up, and wanted to share this love with others. Blogging has been the most exciting journey so far and I have absolutely loved it!

Besides blogging, what are you doing?

I’m currently doing online college through Northwest University . I’m entering into my Senior Year – and am majoring in Business Management. On the side, I work on my blog (in all honesty, on the side I work on school & do my blog full-time, but don’t tell my parents.) If I do not turn my blog into a full-time career after college I would love to work in the event planning industry!

What are your favorite stores?

My top three favorite stores are Nordstrom, Revolve, and Red Dress Boutique. I have loved them for years!

What camera do you use & who shoots your photos?

I use a Canon 5d Mark III and for lenses I have a Canon 24-70 and a Canon 85 mm. I started out with the Canon t6i and highly recommend that camera for anyone starting out and wanting to learn the ropes to photography. I have spent endless nights watching YouTube tutorials and reading articles and finally feel that I understand my camera! When I’m not working with local photographers, I typically just adjust the settings on my camera and hand it off to a friend and ask them to take my photos!
