Samantha // Gold Coast Girl


Samantha is the blogger behind Gold Coast Girl.

Describe your blog:

Gold Coast Girl is a Chicago based fashion and style guide. I provide my readers with information on current trends and elements of my fashion inspiration. I like mixing high and low styles, beautiful bold pieces, making a statement, and am always on the hunt for a good sale.

What is your favorite post you’ve written or your favorite series/type of post?

I think the most popular posts are my Fashionable Friday looks. That is where readers can take a peek inside my closet and see how I style my outfits on a day to day basis.

What is something you wish you knew how to do related to blogging?

I wish I knew more about HTML coding. I think it would be extremely helpful in designing the layout and functionality of my blog. This whole blogging thing is extremely new to me, and a total work in progress. It has been both exciting and challenging, and I have been learning something new every day.

Why did you start blogging?

I love reading fashion blogs so I decided one day that I wanted to start my own. My friends were extremely encouraging so I just went for it. I enjoy studying up on the trends, styling looks, and shopping, so I created this blog as a creative outlet for me to express my love for all things fashion.

What is your favorite social platform?

I love Pinterest. I was a Fine Arts major in college and have always been a very visual person. I enjoy scrolling through all the colors, textures, and patterns. I also like how I am able to create boards of everything I love and can refer back to them when I need some inspiration.

What are a few of your favorite Chicago blogs?
