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. Currently, I live about 15 minutes away from downtown Seattle and am standing out in a city filled with flannel, raincoats, and Seahawks attire. I frequently am forced to answer the question, “why are you so dressed up” due to the fact that my entire wardrobe is dresses and skirts (okay, I have one pair of quilted shorts..)!

 

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?

Currently, I am a student at Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington. I’m entering into my Junior Year – and am majoring in Business Management. On the side, I work on my blog! I must admit…I spend way more time on my blog than on my schoolwork, oops! I would love to take my blog full-time someday, but currently am planning on pursuing a career in the fashion industry or 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!
