Rachel Lynch is living proof that blondes have more fun. Her blog, I Hate Blonde gives the crisp New York fall a Malibu Barbie heat wave, with her copious amounts of pink lipstick and sparse use of pants. Pairing the Big Lita with an oversized sweater and WildFox shades is Rachel’s signature, along with her bleach blonde locks, dark brows and bold lashes. Don’t pin her as a ‘dumb blonde,’ this pre-med student refreshes us with her prose and never hesitates to flex her academic biceps. Plus, how many girls can say they can skate board in the Big Lita?
JC: How would you describe your style?
Rachel: I would describe my style as alien Lolita.
JC: You often pair your photo sets with a bit of prose, do you write it, and if so – how do you get your inspiration?
Rachel: Yes I do write it. I actually only started my blog in the first place because I love to write so much. My writing style is such a big part of who I am, which also means I’m a book nerd. I’m inspired by classic literature and science magazines. Kafka, Scientific America, my favorite reading material. I like to combine the way the world works with how we as people work.
JC: How do you balance school, work, and a blog?
Rachel: How do I? Haha, I think I’m still learning that. School is always a first priority, but I love doing my blog so much sometimes it creeps in there and takes precedence. The styling, the photographs, the writing and the promoting…. I’m truly in love with all aspects of blogging.
JC: What do you never leave home without?
Rachel: I never leave home without my little black notebook, just in case I get the inspiration to write.
JC: What are your 3 fall must haves?
Rachel: My three fall must haves are the cream WildFox “Let’s Make Out” sweater, for cozy fall school days, the big Black Litas, seriously perfect for everyday wear and the leopard UNIF stud jacket
JC: Any advice for aspiring fashion bloggers?
Rachel: My advice would be don’t become addicted to your plan. It’s nice to have an idea of what you want to do when setting out to do a blog, but don’t let that rule you. You have to be open to let it flow and just happen. I’ve been blogging since I was sixteen and I finally just feel like now I am coming into my own.
