Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
My name is Andrea Steen and I am a 25-year-old girl who works in fashion in Oslo, Norway.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
Snooze my alarm! Repeatedly.
What do you always take with you when you leave home?
I always have a large collection of lip products with me and I use the first thing I find in my bag. It doesn't matter what shade it is, I just grab one and go.
When you have time off, what do you enjoy doing?
When I have time off, I usually work more. I've always loved being creative and sharing cool stuff.
When did you become interested in fashion?
My parents have traveled the world and have collected a lot of amazing clothes over the years. I had them in a big suitcase and I used to build different outfits and experiment with all the different styles. When I was ten years old, I started a blog where I posted outfit photos, and although I deleted the blog after five years, it helped set the tone for what I do now with Instagram.
How would you describe your style?
I don't feel like I have a specific style, I can wear a preppy outfit one day and ripped jeans the next. For the past year I've been living with a capsule wardrobe (because I've had limited storage space) and it's changed my view of fashion for the better. I'm more into buying good materials that last, and I make sure that every new piece of clothing matches the clothes I already have. With a few exceptions of course.
What is fashion to you?
Fashion is an expression of your mood, your personality and your lifestyle. You can tell a lot from what a person is wearing.
Where do you find inspiration when it comes to fashion?
I look to friends and colleagues for inspiration for my style. Since many of them work in the same field as me, it's super easy to get inspired.
Do you have a rule of thumb when it comes to creating a good outfit?
If I feel good, I look good. Comfort is key.
What is your favorite look?
Right now it's midi skirts, oversized cashmere sweaters and a cool pair of JoDis boots.
