When you turn your passion into a full-time job, no matter the challenges, you will find ways to excel. This is the story of popular blogger, Blair Eadie who’s always had a passion for fashion but didn’t think she would end up making a career out of it until she became a merchandiser for Gap Inc. in 2007. That launched her fashion career and in 2010, as a hobby, she created Atlantic-Pacific.com to add her unique perspective to the growing conversation on fashion.
For Blair Eadie, the focus is on connecting to audiences in really authentic ways and thanks to her authenticity, the New York-based mega influencer has since collaborated with Gucci, Tory Burch, Sephora, Omega, Fairmont, Range Rover, CoverGirl, Veuve Clicquot, Target and other top brands. Blair recently collaborated with Nordstrom to release Halogen x Atlantic Pacific, a 150-piece collection that includes clothing, shoes and accessories. The collection which is an all-inclusive one ranging from sizes 00-24, is full of colourful, printed, feminine pieces that mirror Blair’s East coast meets West coast style.
While Blair’s style is ever evolving, her signature fun, colourful and classy vibe is unmistakable. She “loves all things feminine – think timeless meets classic with a hint of quirk.” Irrespective of how much her style evolves, she would “rarely be caught without her sunglasses, a bold lip, high heels and polished fingertips!” She is so passionate about nail polish colours that she confessed sometimes she will even plan an entire outfit around the colour of her current nail polish.
Blair is oh-so-fresh with her fashion choices as she keeps her over 1 million Instagram followers inspired on a regular. She has mastered the art of layering and accessorizing like the boss chick she is! But of all her style choices, we have fallen more and more in love with her skirts. Whether she is mixing and matching prints, bouncing in fancy tulle skirts or layering up with trench coats and striped sweaters, Blair is always on a slay mission!
She describes her style thus:
“Quirky, feminine and colourful. I try to evoke elegance, with a polished approach but also a side of irreverence. I want it to be fun and approachable, but I also love an over-the-top, dramatic moment.”
Here’s a pictorial ode to some of her most stylish skirt moments…
