Melina Bee, an interview highly researched by Roma Berkman

Ha, I know you guys love my title? no? So I first found Melina's blog about two months after I started blogging and joined IFB. I instantly knew that mixing vintage clothing, wacky tattoos, and Sassy magazine was everything I needed in a blog. The great thing was Melina wasn't trying to be Tavi, and when people try so insanly hard to be the next Tavi, it isn't even their blog. So, here is the interview I did with her the other day. Oh and every month I want to interview someone so I'm going to email someone again!!
What excites you about fashion?

I like to see different personalities or ideas expressed by clothes. Honestly I'm more into personal style than fashion.

You always enlighten me with Sassy magazine? What has sassy done for you?

Gave me a glimpse of what cool people might be like when I was the opposite of cool.

What is your favorite book(s)

Cruddy by Lynda Barry, Favorite picture book is Decades of Beauty.

also, I think it would be a little hilarious if I did try to be just like Tavi-- cuz I am way too old! (although I love her blog and would totally love to meet her; I was definitely not that together or cool as a teen)

Hi Roma, thanks for visiting my blog. Am loving this interview, it's cool to promote other bloggers - so many are all about vacuous self-promotion.

Melina Bee's yellowish boots are gorgeous! Vintage I assume?
