Elena Fay, blogger and illustrator behind DC In Style, is an artist  creating dreamy watercolors of today’s most covetable fashions. We’re still over the moon from the paintings of her favorite BLUMOSS suits and in celebration, we are co-hosting a giveaway! Be sure to enter by following both @BLUMOSSSwimwear and @DCInStyle. For more on the talented Elena, read on for her Q&A, below:

 

BM: Give us the rundown on life as a blogger and illustrator:

DC:  I started my blog DC in Stylein March, 2012 to share my passion for art and fashion. Over the years this space evolved and became a creative outlet to share things I love, my inspiration and everything creative. Many doors have opened since I started blogging. At the beginning, it was a silly hobby but I really enjoyed it and knew that I want to do it full time. Now I have the opportunity to work with amazing brands and do what I really love-paint, paint, paint.

 

BM:  We also heard that youll be celebrating a new addition to your family soon! What excites you about motherhood?

DC:  Being a mom is a hard work but its the most rewarding job on the planet! I cant be happier to bring in another little man into this world, I already love him more than I can imagine.

 

BM:  What inspires your artistic style?

DC:  Its hard to pinpoint where the inspiration finds me because beautiful things are everywhere around us. When I was a little girl, I was always fascinated by fairy tales, colorful books and paper dolls that my older sister made for me. These days, Im mostly inspired by the magical atmosphere of fashion shows, whimsical collections and embellished gowns. 

BLUMOSS Babe Q&A: Model Chelsea Miller

Created By : 09-Sep-2015 Write By: BLUMOSS Published In: BLUMOSS Babes Hits: 2886 Comment: 0

 

Last week, we teamed up with plus size model, Chelsea Miller. Her energy, confidence and radiating beauty was so infectious, we just had to learn more about her! Read on for our most inspiring Q&A to date!

 

BM:  Currently living?

CM:  I’m currently living in Valencia, CA and unless you are involved with studio work, people

usually have no clue where Valencia is. But an easy solution to that is that it’s the same town

that Six Flags Magic Mountain is located in.  

 

BM:  As a model and influencer, what message do you want to put out there for other women?

CM:  For me and so many of the models I work with, we really want to stress the importance of

health and self-love. Historically, the media has only portrayed one type of woman in their

campaigns, something that is unobtainable by most and that has really had a toll on women’s self-image and what we as a society find beautiful. Beauty cannot be defined; there is beauty in

everything and everyone! I just try and spread this message to those who don’t feel they are

beautiful. To show them that you don’t need to look like anyone else to find beauty in yourself.

Having a healthy mindset of your own image is so important to other aspects of your health,

and I don’t believe you can fully have physical health without mental health.

 

BM: Give us the rundown on life as a model!

CM:  Honestly it’s different every day! We have castings pretty regularly, so for me I am on the

road A LOT!!!! (Mostly because of where I live) It usually takes me about an hour to get

anywhere in LA. Castings usually take about 10 minutes, but then I am on the road again for another hour on the way home. But sometimes the client will have you try on multiple outfits,

which takes a bit long or you get there and there are 5 girls ahead of you, so there is a lot of

waiting as well. Jobs are similar in that way; they are different every time! Editorial or look book

jobs tend to be a little more fun, the makeup is more creative and you get to do more as a

model. When you are doing ecommerce, like Nordstrom’s or Macy’s it’s more about

consistency. So they typically want the same poses just new clothes for each shot. I remember

prior to becoming a model, I thought it had to be the easiest job in the world. But honestly some

days are so tedious and long. There are days where I will be standing, walking, posing in 5”

heels for 9 hours and I’ve changed my outfit a 100+ times. At the end of the day you are

exhausted!

BLUMOSS Babe Q&A: Jennifer DeCillis, Miss New Jersey United States 2014

Created By : 23-Jun-2015 Write By: BLUMOSS Published In: BLUMOSS Babes Hits: 1485 Comment: 0

 

We remember the first time we saw Jennifer Decillis, Miss New Jersey United States 2014 - the raven-haired beauty was welcoming guests at this past spring’s Miss New York United States pageant in Manhattan. Alluring, hospitable and full of charm, Jennifer was the type of beauty queen who made an impression. We were elated when she chose BLUMOSS to accompany her on her next adventure - the Tropic Beauty Finals in Las Vegas. Below, Jennifer gives us insider access from her latest Sin City opportunity to life as a model:

 

BM:  Tell us about the Tropics Beauty Finals!

JD:    The Tropic Beauty finals are such an honor to attend because you know that you are one of one hundred women from around the globe selected to participate. Being rewarded with a spot in the 2016 calendar and the opportunity to shoot for the 2017 calendar was the icing on the cake.

 

BM: Give us the rundown on life as a model!

JD:  Life as a model has been the most chaotic, rewarding, exciting, spontaneous, and humbling experience I could ever ask for and I love every minute of it!

 

BM:  How would you describe your style?

JD:  My style is very versatile, like my look. I love being able to go from New York chic to California beachy and I am constantly trying new styles to see what I like best. I am a chameleon.

 

BM:  What is the most challenging thing when it comes to swimwear shopping?

JD:  When it comes to choosing a bikini for a calendar shoot, it can be tough to find one that is both beautiful and functional. Calendars require solids and simple styles and BLUMOSS gave me those options with beautiful design and fit!

 

BM:  Please share your best swimsuit / bikini fit tip with us.

JD:  For me it is hard to find a bikini that flatters my curves and my natural features. Finding a suit that both supports and allows for a little give is important. And when it comes in a color like Sunset yellow, it's even better!

 

BM:  Can you tell us what your favorite BLUMOSS suit is and why?

JD:  I love the Mai Mesh bikini! The mesh outline gives it the right amount of sexy and the gold hardware makes it pop. I have the Sunset and the Fuchsia colors and love them both!

 

BM:  What’s next on your bucket list?

JD:  As a former pageant queen I have thought about going back and competing or perhaps going into coaching. I know that my work in the modeling industry is far from finished so I am staying driven and motivated towards more success.

 

BM:  What's your best travel tip?

JD:  My best travel tip is to do the absolute most with your vacation. You might never be there again, so go out and explore, meet the locals, try something new and save sleep for when you're home!

 

BM:  Never leave home without...

JD:  I could never leave home without a good bikini. You never know when you might need one and a beach is always a go-to.

 

BM:  BLUMOSS Babes are...

JD:  BLUMOSS babes are confident, sexy, classy women who are comfortable in their skin and feel beautiful in their BLUMOSS swimwear!

BLUMOSS Babe Q&A: The Wordy Girl

We can’t resist the sunny vibe and summer fun of the Sunshine State and that’s why we caught up with Miami-based blogger Maria Tettamanti of The Wordy Girl. Below, she gives us a peek into life as one of Florida’s most prolific fashion bloggers!

 

BM:  How would you describe your style?

WG: Classic with a little edge.  

 

BM:  What is the most challenging thing when it comes to swimwear shopping?

WG:  For me, personally, I feel like I have amazing legs but my butt could use improvement. I like a lot of coverage on my backside and it’s hard to find swimsuits with enough fabric!

 

BM:  Please share your best swimsuit / bikini fit tip with us.

WG:  The cut of the Skala Keyhole Lattice Maillot provides the perfect amount of coverage for my booty!

 

BM:  What is your favorite BLUMOSS suit and why?

WG:  I love the see-through aspect found in the Eden Mesh Panel Maillot. Hello, sexy!

 

BM:  What’s next on your bucket list?

WG:  Traveling to Zacynthos, Greece — home to the most gorgeous beach on planet Earth.

 

BM:  What's your best Travel Tip?

WG:  Never over pack. I literally make a list breaking down each day and what I’ll wear. Always pack a fedora because it adds a major dose of glam to any meh look. Do not pack clothes that require ironing. And never underestimate the power of dry shampoo!

 

BM:  Never leave home without…

WG:  Your bikini…you never know when the opportunity to hit the beach will present itself.

 

BM:  BLUMOSS Babes are…

WG:  Confident and sexy!

BLUMOSS Babe Q&A: Model Joyce Saturno

Created By : 16-Jun-2015 Write By: BLUMOSS Published In: BLUMOSS Babes Hits: 1448 Comment: 0

 

Our fresh new face and BLUMOSS Babe of the season is Brazilian-born model, Joyce Saturno. We loved her fun and sassy energy as she graced the beaches of Florida for our shoot - so much so that we recently caught up with her to find out what life is like behind the lens:

 

BM:  Give us the rundown on life as a model!

JS:  It's definitely not as easy as it looks! Shoots are early in the morning, under the eventually blazing, hot sun! But over all, it's a creative type of job and I love it! I get to meet and work with very talented, amazing people and create marvelous outcomes!

 

BM:  How would you describe your lifestyle?

JS:  Busy! Busy! Busy! Always working! I'm a visual merchandiser and I love what I do, I work 40-45 hours a week at that job. On my time off from there, I'm most likely modeling at the beach/studio or styling a shoot. However, I always find time to do some city exploring with my loving boyfriend who is very supportive of my work-oriented mentality, since he's the same way!

 

BM: What is the most challenging thing when it comes to swimwear shopping?

JS:  The most challenging thing would definitely be finding the right fit for your body. For me, it is finding a suit that can flatter my bust area. I'm very curvy and sometimes the suit just does not fit how it's supposed to, doesn't matter what size I try on!

 

BM:  Please share your best swimsuit/bikini fit tip with us.

JS:  The best fit tip I can give to any lady is to find a fit YOU feel comfortable in!! Sometimes we get so caught up in current trends, that we just end up feeling completely uncomfortable! Luckily BLUMOSS has the perfect fit for my bust that makes me feel comfortable whether I am lounging or doing any activities!

 

BM:  What is your favorite BLUMOSS suit and why?

JS:  My fave fave would definitely be the Skala Keyhole Maillot! I actually have never had a one piece where I felt 100% comfortable in! And it has the cutest charm, with the keyhole cutouts along the bust and the open back!! Love love LOVE!

 

BM:  What's next on your bucket list?

JS:  With my modeling: I am currently working really hard to try to work with as many photographers/bathing suit companies/make up artists/models as I can...that way I can get my blog out in the open finally!!!

With my merchandising: I'm also working really hard to get promoted again and hopefully in the next year and a half I'll be able to travel the district and merchandise for my company and BLOG ON THE ROAD (about fashion, style, lifestyle, and modeling)!!!!! So excited!!!!

 

BM:  Never leave home without

JS:  A positive mentality. This may be as corny as ever but I am a very optimistic person, and the positive energy HELPS with everything I set my mind to!! ....And also my phone haha!

 

BM:  BLUMOSS babes are...

JS:  Sexy and classy; always charming!
