Interviewing Pia Staten
Hello everyone, It’s my pleasure to introduce Ms. Pia of the blog Pia Lashay. Pia blogs about her life, natural hair, being a fashion student with an eager desire to get into the industry, sneaker love, her style and designs.
I love Pia’s outfits, there’s something natural to her style, and how she puts her spin on feminine and fun looks. Check out Pia’s blog for yourself at www.pialashay.blogspot.com.
The Eye: If you had to pick a theme song for your style, what would it be?
Pia: My style excites people usually, so anything Lil Jon. But really, that’s my personality in general. Lol exciting, unexpected.
The Eye: Do you blog as a hobby, or do you want it to grow into something more?
Pia: I blog because it’s an outlet. I’ve always blogged to let out things that I can’t necessarily run to my friends to discuss. I’ve always been the friend people come to for advice, so it’s awkward for me to go to anyone for advice about anything - that’s where my blog comes in. And I don’t mind my blog growing, it actually excites me. I just don’t want to draw a crowd that I don’t want, I like true bloggers.
The Eye: How do you feel about the current state of fashion blogging?
Pia: I feel like people are blogging now to become popular or famous. It’s really irritating.
The Eye: How do you feel about the recent popularity thrift shops have going on right now?
Pia: I’ve always been a thrift shop junky. So when other people started doing it, it was kinda cool, then I got annoyed because I felt like everyone was dressing the same… thrifty. That is another reason why my style is changing from thrifty to more classic.
The Eye: Do you have a style icon, if you do who, and if no, why?
Pia: I’ve never had a style icon. I’ve always been a “sneakerhead” and I’ve never knew any other females who wore sneakers (celebs or not), so I kinda had to make my own style around my sneakers.
The Eye: Want to give a blogger shoutout, as in any bloggers you’re loving right now you’d like the readers to check out?
Pia: All of my favorite bloggers no longer blog. One of the girls went on Bad Girls Club and disappeared from her blog - my other fav, she just stopped. My last girl is from Canada, and she is just hot hot hot hot, but she stopped as well. So sorry, I don’t have anyone I’m slobbering over currently.
The Eye: Where can we see more of you?
Pia: I have instagram (piamingg) but I really like vine, Pia Ming. My tumblr is like a diary and the name is princessofthetrap. My main blog is pialashay.blogspot.com
Thank you Pia for sharing with the readers of The Eye!
