Hello, Jodie! First of all, we would like to thank you for taking the time to answer our questions! Could you introduce yourself in a few words?
Thank you, I’m very happy to be speaking to you! My name is Jodie (like Jodie Foster), I am 22 years old, I come from the suburbs of Paris (Saint-Germain-en-Laye) and now I live in Rennes. Fashion and Paris are my two greatest passions.
What made you want to create an Instagram account and where does your passion for fashion come from?
I’ve had my Insta account since November 1, 2013, and my very first photo on it was one of a Valentino fashion show. It was originally set up as a personal account where I shared anything and everything about my life and passions. Multiple people have encouraged me to post more photos of my looks, so that's what I've been doing since July. It seems to be working so far! When it comes to my passion for fashion, I have had it since I was born so I really have no idea haha!
We really fell in love with your Instagram account and you sharing all your new finds! Where do you find inspiration for both your photos and your style?
Oh, thank you so much!! My inspiration partially comes through my job; I spend my days browsing popular e-shops, looking for future trends. That’s how I get new ideas. I also spend a lot of time on Instagram, I draw a lot of inspiration from this social network. Apart from that, I am not someone who’s desperate to be fashionable, I just wear what I love.
Your Instagram community seems very important to you. What do you think your followers love about you?
It’s true, my community is really lovely, I adore everyone. I know (for they have told me) that they value my kindness and the fact that I keep my feet on the ground. I think they also appreciate me being present and involved by responding to messages and comments. I share a lot of things with them.
You travel a lot in search of new pieces, what are some of your favorite destinations? Do you have any tips to share with us?
I go to Paris about 3 times a month, I also love Bordeaux a lot. I love wandering through the streets of Paris, sitting at a cafe and looking at the outfits of people passing by. I see a lot of stuff. Some tips? Go to thrift stores!
Besides your Instagram account, you are also one of the founders of the Not your girl e-shop; do you have any other future plans?
Absolutely! I would really love to live in London, it's something that’s always in the back of my mind.
Do you have any advice on how to prepare our wardrobes for the next few months? What are some trends one should not miss?
Big soft sweaters as it will get cold, a long camel coat (the staple), vinyl, I adore vinyl! "Big" boots, like my pair of Balenciaga, I know I’ll be wearing them all winter. And fake fur, the FAKE kind obviously, haha!
Your life is rather full, like those of many of us; what are some tips on how to stay productive for the entire day?
I am the least organized person in the world so I think it would be rather difficult for me to give advice when it comes to this subject! Personally, I start my day by listening to music, it motivates me and I listen to it as soon as I start feeling lethargic! My days would definitely be less cool without it!
What Comptoirs d'Orta piece do you think you will be purchasing next?
The Louise skirt, of course!
We want to thank Jodie for taking the time to answer our questions and we wish her the best! Keep up the good work!
