Meet Team Snob! Tina Craig and Kelly Cook are the owners and founders of the Snob blogging empire that includes the very popular site Bagsnob, a “selective editorial on bags".
Describe the Snob empire- you have a network of blogs. What inspires you? The most treasured item(s) in your closet: What items do you covet? Fashion heroes? Favorite fashion period?: What do you plan to wear this summer? What is your best piece of style advice? Famous Last Words:
TINA: The Snob sites cover it all. Bags, Couture, Beauty, and Tots. What else does a woman need?
KELLY: We have expertise in these areas because we are obsessed with all of the above!
TINA: Strong and confident women inspire me. My grandmother, especially.
Kelly: Funny witty people. As for fashion icons, I am all over the place, I love Grace Kelly, Gwen Stefani, and Jennifer Lopez, but I don't dress like any of them!
TINA: A Vintage 1960's White Ostrich Hermes Kelly bag, YSL vintage Haute Couture pink gown (signed), Hermes crocodile Birkin, my wedding gown made of creamy Scottish lace and hand sewn seed pearls (yes it hangs in my closet, and I put it on occasionally for fun), Marni platform shoes, and my diamonds.
KELLY: My Hermes Birkin in turquoise.
TINA: VBH bags, Crocodile Birkins, Roland Mouret dresses, YSL shoes, Balmain studded dresses and shoes, anything Balenciaga, and Diamonds.
KELLY: Bar Rafaeli's body!
TINA: Carine Roitfeld, Kate Moss, LouLou de la Falaise, Diane von Furstenberg, Roland Mouret, Alexander Mcqueen, Ricardo Tisci for Givenchy, and Stefano Pilati for YSL.
KELLY: Diane von Furstenberg, Jil Sander, Alber Elbaz, and Tomas Maier
TINA: Now, as defined by my fashion heroes. I love the period we are in-- anything goes!
KELLY: Next season! I always want new because I get bored by the long fashion cycle.
TINA: Lots of little white dresses with chunky punky accessories, sky-high heels, and brightly colored crocodile bags.
KELLY: Kaftans, always for the summer! I get them long and short and even dress it up for evening.
TINA: Wear it if you feel beautiful in it.
KELLY: Play up your personality. Great style is created by being yourself rather than following what's in magazines and on celebrities.
TINA: I MUST HAVE THAT!
KELLY: OH my god! Apparently, I say that a lot even though I don't notice it.
