Socialbliss Spotlight: Pink Pearls & Penny Loafers

As I shared last week I recently joined Socialbliss as a Style Ambassador and while I adore this site, I have to confess that my primary reason for joining was getting the chance to meet amazing new writers and get a chance to check out their sites. Needless to say I was thrilled when I got a chance to interview the lovely Sarah of Pink Pearls & Penny Loafers. {And obviously I fell a little bit in love with her when I read her blog name – Does it get any cuter than that?}

Read on to learn about this very stylish lady and be sure to head to her blog to read her interview with me!


  1. Name: Sarah Elizabeth Ravely
  2. Blog: Pink Pearls & Penny Loafers
  3. Socialbliss Profile: Sarah Ravely
  4. Socialbliss Ambassador Since: 15 May 2013
  5. All-Time Favorite Designer: This is a tough one, but first most and foremost… Diane Von Furstenberg. Need I say more? Her ability to construct the most beautiful and flattering silhouettes takes true talent. Along with Carolina Herrera. Both know the female body all too well. Reem Acra designs the most gorgeous and luxurious gowns. Jean Paul Gaultier is quite the artist. Clare Waight Keller, of Chloe, continues to introduce romantic feminine fashions to the world. And lastly Zac Posen and Ralph Lauren, always creating something so beautiful and ready to wear.
  6. Celebrity Closet You’d Raid: Gosh, where to begin! I think Jennifer Aniston has such a classic and timeless style. I could only imagine how impeccable her closet is. Sienna Miller could make a garbage bag look hot. I love her casual thrown together style. Blake Lively always looks stunning on the red carpet. Nicole Richie’s style is so laid back, boho-chic. Rhianna has the most badass street style. I absolutely adore Lauren Conrad and Taylor Swift’s innocent girly frocks. And don’t let me forget the forever stylish, SJP!  I adore the Olsen twins style. They are so trendy.
    And if you could include in the what inspires my style question… Since joining Socialbliss I have been exposed to so many different styles and trends so I must say that my fellow trendsetters and bloggers also inspire my style.
  7. What Inspires Your Style: I am inspired by classic, vintage styles mixed with a modern twist. I like silhouettes that blow in the wind and make you feel free, as if it is the summer of love. I am inspired by culture and the use of patterns as well as different colors. I am inspired by other people as well as nature. I think fashion is a form of art and self-expression. I prefer things that are comfortable and effortless, yet stylish at the same time. My style is trendy yet casual and I represent that girl next door that loves fashion.
  8. Favorite Item You’re Selling on Socialbliss:  I recently uploaded one of my all-time favorite dresses. It is a bright and vibrant paisley one-shoulder dress I purchased from a boutique in Wisconsin. It is so lightweight and comfortable I absolutely adore it. Trust me, if it fit, I’d be keeping it!
  9. Where Are You Located: Milwaukee, WI
  10. How Long Have You Been Blogging: Not long at all… I started blogging when I became a style ambassador
    for Socialbliss.
  11. Do You Have A Day Job: I am a full-time college student at Carroll University in Waukesha, WI. I am majoring in communications, PR, and minoring in marketing. I also work at a boutique called Lela in Milwaukee’s trendiest neighborhood: the third ward.
  12. How & When Did You Get Interested In Fashion: Ever since I was a kid I was into clothes, makeup, and hair. Growing up my friends always asked me to do their hair, their makeup, and help them find something to wear. I have always been a shop-a-holic. And growing up I just developed a strong passion for all things fashion and beauty.
  13. Summer Obsession: Big floppy hats. I absolutely love the big floppy hat trend right now.
