While I always love receiving emails, you may find the answer to your question on this page!
Will you advertise my product?
It depends on what exactly your product is. Send me an email to sarah[at]ibleedfashion[dot]com with a description of the product you would like to advertise, type of advertisement on the website, and rumination and I will get back to you. Please note, I am primarily interested in advertising products related to fashion, but I will sometimes consider beauty, travel, and technology advertisement as well. The integrity of my blog is my first and foremost priority, so please keep this in mind before you email me about a project or advertising deal.
Do you sell ad space?
I do, but again your product must be in line with one or all of my stories on “I Bleed Fashion”. Currently, the only size I offer is a 300×300 pixel advert at $15 CAD/month.
What kind of camera do you use?
I use a Canon Rebel t2i DSLR body with either a Canon 18-135 mm f/3.5-5.6 EF-S lens or a Canon 50mm f/1.8 portrait lens. Most nighttime shots are taken using a Canon Speedlite 430EX external flash.
What is your policy with the images on “I Bleed Fashion”?
All images are property of I Bleed Fashion, unless otherwise stated. If you would like to use an image from “I Bleed Fashion”, please write to sarah[at]ibleedfashion[dot]com and include a backlink to my website. As any blogger knows, the amount of time you spend looking at an image is only a mere fraction of the time it has taken me to adjust the image, upload and write the content, and then to promote it on social media.
Do you Photoshop your images?
My images are often modified to account for shadows, colour, and sharpness in Adobe Lightroom 3, but I do not cosmetically “retouch” my face or body in any of my images.
Who takes your pictures?
Most often, I use a tripod and a remote, but occasionally my boyfriend or parents will also take pictures for me.
How did you come up with the name “I Bleed Fashion”?
The name of my blog resulted from a conversation I had with someone over two years ago when I was explaining what I wanted to do with my life. Despite having a strong interest in psychology, my field of academic study, I also tried to explain my love of fashion, saying that it’s “just something in my blood, it’s a part of me”. I also wanted a blog name that was a bit different from the rest – something slightly dark, to reflect my personal style. From both of those influences, “I Bleed Fashion” was born.
Where are you based? You cover fashion in both Montreal and Toronto?
I currently live in Montreal, but I have lived most of my life in Ontario, so I try to cover the biggest events there too (which are frequently in Toronto).
Where do you get the money to buy all of your clothes?
This is an inevitable question that a lot of fashion bloggers get asked. The short and only answer I will provide is that while I do work part-time outside of university, I am fortunate to come from a financially stable family that has allowed me to have a lot more than other people. I don’t feel sorry for it, but I am extremely grateful for all that I do have.
What languages do you speak?
English (native fluency), French (moderate fluency) and Italian (moderate fluency).
What are your favourite brands?
T by Alexander Wang, Aritzia, Sandro, Zara, Rag & Bone, Acne, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Prada.
How tall are you? What size are you?
I am 171cm tall and wear usually size 4 pants and size 6 top.
