Q&A with Awards Best of Fashion Winner @dressupbuttercup awards best of fashion winner dress up butter cup dressupbuttercup

From everyday essentials to the chicest date night looks, Dede from @dressupbuttercup has you covered. Read below on how her life has changed since starting her influencer business and what her must-have pieces are for 2019.

How did you get your start in the influencer industry? Before blogging I was in the wedding industry, which I LOVED due to the creative, collaborative, and rewarding environment. After graduation I decided to get a “big girl” job and try corporate America. I really missed working in an environment that I was passionate about and knew was helping others. Fashion and travel was always a huge passion of mine and even though I had no idea of where the blog would take me, I knew the satisfaction of doing what I love and helping others with style tips, travel recommendations, etc was more than worth it!

How has having your digital brand changed your life? I always had a desire to find something to do that I love and to have that opportunity is life changing. As the cliche goes, “do what you love and you will never work a day in your life” absolutely applies to me today, and I’m so thankful for it!

What has been the most challenging part of running your own influencer business? I always have been so intimidated by the industry, BUT I just knew that I loved fashion and loved more than anything, putting together a good outfit. Learning the behind the scenes of the fashion industry has been challenging, but completely eye opening and humbling! Also, everyone is so sweet and has made the process so much more enjoyable!

What was your favorite fashion trend of 2018? What trend are you loving for 2019? I LOVED pairing over the knee boots with a good mini skirt. It elevates any look in my opinion and I always felt like a million bucks in that combo! Currently, I am loving elevated basics! Whether that is just a white tee and jeans, paired with a colorful headscarf, cardigan or statement shoes.

What is your go-to closet staples? Any type of dress! You can wear them all year round and there are so many different dresses out there to match your mood. Fun and flirty for a night out, casual swing tee dress for running around town, a statement dress when you’re ready to wow everyone!
