Tell us about yourself:
My name is Edina and I am from Hungary. Since I was a child I travelled a lot. I have visited most European countries, including France, Italy, UK, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Slovenia, and Montenegro, and at the age of 23 I moved to London to learn about other cultures and be more independent.
I love adventure and discovering new places, so after a year in London, I decided to move to New York City. Living in New York has been my dream since I was 12. I am the kind of girl who can’t stay in the same place for too long, so I have decided to visit different states every two months, including Washington DC, Florida, California, Ohio and so on.
Tell us about your blog:
I started my fashion blog about organic skin care, cruelty-free fashion and vegan food, but I felt like something was missing. I worked in retail for many years; therefore I was always interested in selling and knew I wanted to create something with traveling. In January I traveled to Florida and I had the hardest time finding trendy but sustainable beach wear. So at that moment “Vegan Resort Wear” was born. I target travelers all around the world, and I only offer TSA approved beauty and cosmetic products. I also have resort wear, shoes and straw bags in my e-commerce store.
Travel Fashion Tip:
My advice to those who want to travel stylish but don’t want to carry their whole wardrobe is to plan ahead and organize. What I do now is to buy light color fabric that can be matched easily with other pieces. I try to stick to natural colors and limit myself to a few fashion pieces in my suitcase.
Before you pack, make a list. For example: How many days will be you on the beach? How many days will you be exploring cities? How many nights are you going to a need dressier outfit? Plan out each outfit head to toe.
Favorite Travel Item:
The one item I always bring with me is my camera, but soon it will be a GoPro.
My favorite airport is Fort Lauderdale airport, because it’s small and it’s never too crowded.
Where are you traveling next?
I have two vacations booked already, one is to London then Budapest, the second one will be island hopping on the Bahamas, St Thomas, Virgin Island, St Kitts and Nevis. And we will stay in Florida for a few days 🙂
