Sheryl Luke started her blog four years ago to showcase her personal style, which is a perfect blend of comfort meets chic. The Los Angeles native tells us how she went from a 9 to 5 job, to a full-time blogger.
Tell us a little about yourself
Before I started my blog, I was sitting behind a desk, getting dressed everyday for the rat race. But now, I am really happy that I blog full-time and get to document my daily outfits. I wake up everyday looking forward to whatever outfit my mood puts me in.
How did you first get interested in fashion?
Watching my mum dress up, she was quite the fashionista. She is definitely the reason why I love fashion so much. I think one should try to look pleasant and approachable, because you never know who you’ll bump into. A first impression is important.

Describe your personal style
I don’t really have a specific style, but for the most part I love pairing a basic item with a statement piece. To me, fashion is all about having fun and experimenting. I never say no to trying new styles, but most times you will find me in edgy, urban and chic outfits.

What is the first thing you notice in another person’s outfit?
I look at how comfortable and happy they look. I think confidence overcomes all and when a person is confident, it is reflected in their look.
How does your cultural background influence and inspire your style?
My use of color in my outfits and also how I like to accessorize is rooted in my culture, with my own modern spin of course!
Number one fashion tip
Don’t follow trends. You have to wear what you feel most comfortable and confident in. I was quite close to getting myself a pair of Birkenstocks, but I felt I was not going to be able to pull it off so I finally decided against that.
What pieces do you splurge on?
If I had to splurge on an item it would definitely be on a handbag.
What is the most notable current trend and your thoughts?
I am all about the Androgynous look lately.
One fashion rule you NEVER break?
Visible panty lines are an absolute no. Invest in seamless nude undergarments.
Who is your fashion icon?
My fashion icon is the everyday woman who has to manage so much in her professional and personal life and still manages to look fabulous!
Aside from always looking fabulous, what are your other hobbies?
I love cooking. I come from a family that takes pride in making home cooked Indian meals and although I was a little late to that party, I’ve really been bitten by that bug.
What are the top three places we must visit in Los Angeles?
The Grove because it’s just beautiful any time of the day, the Fairfax Flea market on Sundays for people watching and vintage/indie finds and anywhere along the Pacific Coast highway.
In year 2015 you will be…?
I will continue to evolve in my fashion world, meet more people and learn new things.
