Manchester based Lizzy Hadfield is a fashion blogger with a penchant for luxury goods. Her blog, Shot From The Street is an alluring mix of film and digital outfit shots accompanied by weekly vlogs. We chatted to Lizzy about her best luxury purchase, her dream destinations and how she’s managed to make blogging her 9-5.

On work life…

I blog full time! My days are filled with creating content for my blog, YouTube and Instagram. It’s my dream job and I often can’t believe I get to do it full time!

On downtime…

Oh, I love homeware shopping. Shopping really is my therapy but as it’s now so closely tied to work I tend to wind down away from shopping for clothes! Of course, eating cake and drinking tea would be in there too.

On discovering blogging…

I started while I was at uni after realising the huge amount of time I was spending reading other people’s blogs could go to better use if I was creating my own!

On making the leap to full time blogging…

It was when I graduated. I knew it was my dream job, but I wasn’t making a living from it. I moved back home with my Mum and went for it. I knew it would be so much harder to pick up a salary and walk away from that to freelance than it would be to never have the salary – it was a risk but thankfully it paid off!

On future goals…

I am desperate to own a Corgi!

On wardrobe essentials…

Aside from the obvious like denim and t-shirts, a longline blazer is my biggest wardrobe essential. I have a few that I wear all the time.

Best luxury purchase…

My Gucci loafers. I bought them in Singapore last year, I have never worn a shoe as much as those!

On shopping habits…online or offline?

Both, I tend to scout pieces online and then go in store, where possible, to see them in real life.

On AW16 trends…

I don’t massively follow trends but I am loving that velvet is everywhere at the moment. The biggest trend I always tap into is menswear, even if it isn’t really a trend that season!

Favourite travel destination…

Tropea, Italy. We holiday there every year to see my Uncle!

On travel essentials…

A good book, and all my cameras – I cannot visit somewhere beautiful and not blog about it!

On dream living locations…

Either Paris because it always inspires me so much. Or the Yorkshire countryside, which always reminds me of growing up and never stops being beautiful.
