Metrogypsie

My name is Stephanie Ij, I'm a workaholic.

I am always busy thinking about something, doing something and then trying to start doing another, crazy. For example I cannot watch tv without being on my phone or making some list or the other.

I've got an MSc in Economics, and Msc in International Business and I'm currently a Management Consultant with a reputable company in England.

Extremely enthusiastic about style, trends and most things fashion, I started a Work Fashion blog from my brand name, METROGYPSIE, last year (2013).

My flair for style emanated from my dad who was always supportive about my discovering my personal style and experimenting from the age of 8/9 while in primary school. My mum was a tad more conservative but she loved jewelry A LOT.
As little as 10 I was already rocking them huge vintage earrings that clipped to shut.

Oh yes and I have a Fashion pet-peeve
- Females: Wobbling in your heels, it shows you are not comfortable and you obviously cannot portray confidence doing that.
- Males: I really love men that smell good so maybe bad smelling men. Lol!

What I love about Fashion?
- It's degree of expressiveness, is so wide. It inspires me, makes me happy, gives me the opportunity to express what I'm feeling at a point in time, makes me able to categorize people.
It's like a genre in life, a certain language as you can communicate and be drawn to certain people without having to say much.

Stay tuned to my brand and also check out my YouTube channel.
