I have been an avid Instagram user for a few years. I started in 2012 with a personal account, then a blog account in 2014 which was part of my fashion school marketing assignment. It took a backseat in 2015 when I started working as a social media manager and started managing different accounts for companies I worked for. Over the years I have managed multiple social media accounts for various online and offline business. One of my recent personal venture is @lilysthought__ and this blog.
With over 5 years experience working in social media and digital space, I rarely come across content that really inspires me. I have seen hundreds of Instagram feeds which are all great and successful but so similar that you lose interest after a while. Flat lays, colour co ordinated feeds, filters that makes the feed look cohesive, you name it, I have seen it! But when I discovered @Quarantine_fashion_sos I was instantly obsessed!
When I saw the picture above on my Instagram explore page, I got instantly obsessed with the creativity. I wanted to know more about the creator and see more of her feed, and I was pleasantly surprised with the best kind of “Quarantine Fashion” I have seen so far. You have heard the saying, “when life gives you lemon?…” Athena of @ Quarantine_fashion_sos is truly making the most out of her life in quarantine with incredible creativity and her fabulous fashion sense.
A lawyer by profession, she started her Instagram account just a month ago in April, out of boredom and being stuck in the lockdown. Her sense of style will make you think she is a Vogue stylist! An avid fashion lover, with a beautiful collection of outfits and accessories which includes some gorgeous vintage pieces.
Why you need to follow her?
Style Inspiration: She didn’t let the limited resources during the lockdown stop her creativity. A lot of her pictures are shot in the comfort of her apartment and yet she made it look like something out of the pages of a fashion magazine. Her elegant yet fun style will never fail to inspire you.
Lots of Eye Candy: When I say eye candy, I am not just talking about Athena’s pretty face but the beautiful way she styles her collection of stunning designer vintage and contemporary outfits and accessories.
Here are some of my favourite pictures from her feed:
