Late Afternoon With Liz Cherkasova

Liz Cherkasova's blog, Late Afternoon, is our go-to source when we need a little reminder of how to spend out our wardrobe budgets. She has built an incredible wardrobe on a mix of lower priced pieces from stores like American Apparel, H&M and Zara, peppered in with vintage finds and the occasional designer piece for that extra special something. Cherkasova says that she would one day like to be a personal stylist or design window displays around the world for a big fashion company – and based on her ability to style up wearable, totally adorable outfits, we think she'd be just great at either calling. Read on to hear more about this tall drink of water, and check our her blog here.

StyledOn: Tell us a little about yourself – how did you get into blogging?
Liz Cherkasova: I started my blog as a hobby while I was finishing my BA in Social Psychology.

SO: We saw that you got to attend shows at New York Fashion Week this month. What were the highlights?
LC: The Tory Burch show was such a pleasant surprise that it unintentionally became the highlight of the week.

SO: How would you describe the style scene in San Francisco?
LC: Non-existent.

SO: You’re a total natural in front of the camera – what’s your secret?
LC: That's funny you say that, I used to hate having my picture taken. I'll credit my "abilities" to watching America's Next Top Model reruns like they're going out of style.

SO: What is the most treasured item in your closet?
LC: My vintage kimono collection.

SO: What’s at the top of your wishlist right now?
LC: A mini skirt that won't show my butt cheeks.

SO: How has your style evolved over time?
LC: I used to worry about not being edgy enough, not wearing black enough, not being cool enough. Now I just wear what I like.

SO: Do you have any big plans or goals for your blog this year?
LC: My only goal is to continue blogging for the fun and joy of it, and to make videos.

SO: Tell us something about yourself that we might not expect.
LC: My first CD was Metallica's ...And Justice For All album.
