Hello! I'm Veronika the author and gal behind "Girl & Closet!" I started this space in the spring of 2010 as a way to make nice with my closet and connect with other fashion loving gals. I'm proud to say my little corner of the internet has had millions of page views since it's inception and I've had the pleasure of creating collaborations for:
LOFT, Daniel Wellington, Nordstrom, Maison Birks, Modcloth, Shop Ruche, Jacob, Fossil and Blowfish Shoes. Girl & Closet has also been featured by the Huffington Post, Lucky Magazine Style Collective, The Nest, Bella along with several other high profile print magazines.
When I'm not pouring my heart and soul into this space?! I love taking time to travel around the west coast, cook meals with my husband, decorate our new home and hang with our fur fam (we have one rambunctious eskipoo, Scout, and a too sweet rescue kitty named Sunshine). And... if you're looking to team up with Girl & Closet? Please visit my sponsorship page for full collaboration details, or email me directly. So very nice to meet you, friend! xo
Frequently Asked Questions
What made you start your blog?
I had just spent a year working from home, living in yoga pants and was craving an outlet for fashion. One day, I stumbled on a few personal style fashion blogs and was hooked! A few months later, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and started my own. Although, it's a ton of work, I love being a part of the community and hope to continue building my space for years to come.
How did you grow your blog?! Can you give any tips?
Be nice and participate in the community! I love attending blogger meet-ups, fashion shows and blogging conferences; it's a wonderful way to meet other bloggers & potential sponsors. Also, pick a topic you're truly interested in. When you align yourself with your passions, it shows, and that's always infectious. Lastly... blog aesthetics, well written content and great photography help a lot too.
Who takes your photos?
Usually my husband, but if he's too busy, I'm no stranger to a tripod and remote. Aside from the silly looks from strangers... it's a hoot. ;)
What camera do you use?
I use a full frame Canon 6D and a 50mm fixed lens -- my absolute favourite! And I edited my photos using Beautiful Mess Actions, or Rad Lab Presets!
Are you a vegetarian and how do you stay fit?
Yes I am. I've always preferred a vegetarian life-style. I love to eat lentils, quinoa, split peas, oatmeal and whole grains - I also add nuts to my salads for added protein. As for staying fit? I love to do yoga and run several times a week.
How long have you been married?
I've been with my husband for 17 years and love married life!
