She's got the glow: interview with Alicia a.k.a. Neon Fox

In our last post, we introduced you to Alicia of Neon Fox blog. Watch our interview with Alicia in NYC last May as we get to know her a little better. Thanks for posting about us, Alicia!

Q. Please introduce yourself and your blog

My name’s Alicia, and my blog is called Neon Fox. I started Neon Fox about 4 years ago. It's a blog that showcases my personal style, my passion for fashion, beauty, and some lifestyle aspects as well.

Q. How did you come up with the name Neon Fox?

It was honestly just that I needed 2 words that go together. I like neon colors, and my personality is a bit foxy. I'm cunning - I can be a little sneaky sometimes. It's hard to read me. Some people can't tell what I'm going to do next - cuz I'm always full of surprises. Also, neon stands for having an electric neon-bright personality - it just made sense. It works!

Q. Tell us a bit about yourself and what you like to do in your free time.

It's weird to talk about myself - I feel like I'm weird. I'm super goofy, I love to have a good time. I'm always down for some fun - I'm the unexpected. In my free time, if I ever actually HAVE free time, I'm probably creating photography, beauty, things like that...networking, or eating...

Q. Fav place to eat in NYC?

I have a long list of places I go to. My #1 spot would be Ruby's. It's a cafe/restaurant with nouveau American food. I love pasta! Anything with cheese, meat, sauce - we're good.

Q. You're a student at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology). What do you study there?

I study fashion business management - basically the business side of fashion.

Q. Who or what is the biggest influence on your style?

Before I started blogging, I was reading a lot of other blogs. Fashion Toast was one of the first blogs I stumbled onto. That's the blog that made me want to create my own space. Right now, my biggest influence would have to be Rihanna. I just really love her. She just doesn't care - she wears whatever she wants and she rocks it. That's very inspiring.

Q. Which item in your closet do you wear the most?

Black jeans are my go-to. I have several pairs in different styles and washes. Black jeans, black jeans, black jeans, all year long.

Q. How has living in NY informed your style?

Before I moved here, I had a very summery style, because I lived in Texas and Georgia, and it was hot most of the time. Now that I've moved here, I'm drawn to black, and lots of boots, and different styles of coats. I express my style now in layers and layers. My style is transforming into this minimalism with an edge. That's New York for you!

Q. What 5 items do you always carry with you?

My chapstick, my portable charger, my metro card, my (regular) charger. And lipstick.

Q. What do you think of Silkstaq?

Silkstaq is a really cool platform to connect bloggers and influencers all in one space, where you don't have to search for a blogger's other social media networks, cuz it's all there. And it connects people with the same style, look, fit, body type, budget - it's a nice little seamless space.

Thanks Alicia! Check out Neon Fox on Silkstaq to see her Youtube, blog, Instagram, and Tumblr in one place!
