Blanka wears many hats. You can also take this literally, as the psychologist, stylist, blogger and mother designs the most beautiful hats which look like they are part of a fairytale. She revealed some of Vienna’s best hotspots for Wearona.
If you are planning for a Vienna city break, you are at the right place. It is time for another stylish insider guide for the Austrian capital and for that we contacted Blanka, a beautiful person inside and out, who will tell us more about her life, her blog, her business and will take us on a very special tour of Vienna.
Who is Blanka?
I come from the capital city of Slovenia, Ljubljana. At the age 26, I am a graduate psychologist, stylist, wife and mother of two gorgeous children. What occupies most of my daily professional routine is being a stylist and full time blogger for Attitude by BSR. I’m based in Vienna where I do most of my work and live a happy family life. The only hobby that I take time for is yoga in the mornings to clear my mind and prepare myself for the day.
How did you become interested in fashion?
That goes back to my childhood and being surrounded with stylish people all the time. My grandmother had an amazing sense of style and that had a strong effect on me and my understanding of what I want to do in my life. She inspired me to be a stylist.
When and how did you start blogging?
I started my blog last year, in January 2014. It happened from the desire to show the world my personal style that was noticed many times before and to show my work of HatsByBSR, a company that had been running for half a year before my blog…
How did your life change since you started this blog?
My blog has become my lifestyle… I really love capturing my life in pictures and posting them on the blog and social media platforms. Most importantly, the blog became my No.1 business and everything runs around that.
Who are your favorite style icons?
Christine Centenera, Diane Vreeland, Coco Chanel.
What are your favorite fashion brands?
COS, All Saints, HatsByBSR.
Where do you like to go shopping?
On my home sofa, with the iPad in my hands…Outnet and Net-a-Porter are my favorite shopping destinations.
Tell us more about the Hats by BSR project.
It is a project that has been around longer than my blog, but I managed to make it a serious business because of the blog. Hats speak for themselves. I make the hats I dream about. Turbans and beanies are my latest obsession and I cannot be more proud of the result that is showing. All HatsByBSR are high quality, handmade with carefully chosen materials and they reflect my vision of style and life. I call it my real life fairytale where I can dream every piece and then turn into reality.
What inspires you to create these beautiful hats?
I’m inspired by everyday life and style of the most iconic fashion people, who were all wearing hats… the idea comes from creating a super stylish accessory that makes you unique, powerful and makes you feel strong and different. This is what my turbans, hats and beanies have!
Describe the perfect woman to wear your creations.
Independent, confident woman who has style that reflects her inner strength… such as Christine Centenera, the Olsen twins, Kate Bosworth.
Describe Vienna in a few words.
Beautiful, friendly, safe, full of life…
