Ask Me Now

Lucy-Williams-Fashion-Me-Now-Free-People-Summer-Caribbean - 24

This is a new blog series I’ve been wanting to start for a long time for lots of reasons, so I’m really excited to finally be doing it.

The main reason I wanted to launch this Q&A series was that I love to chat, and can wax lyrical about everything and anything for unhealthy amounts of time… But I also, gratefully, receive a good bunch of emails from people regularly asking about everything from career advice to what size I bought in a certain top, and I thought it would be great to create an open space where I can answer people’s questions, no matter how weird and wonderful, for all to see. I’ve had some great chats with women at events I’ve done in the past, everything from starting their own business to where to stay in Sri Lanka, but wanted to take it further and be able to chat about things on the reg.

So without further ado, let’s get the conversation going… On twitter or instagram, use the hashtag #AskLucy (just so I can find questions easily and don’t miss them) or just comment on the blog and I’ll answer them once or twice a month in a bumper post. No question is too monotonous or too lengthy so don’t be afraid to ping them over. If you ever want a question to be anonymous, you can email me at lucy@fashionmenow.couk with the subject ‘Ask Lucy’ and I promise to keep you nameless but answer the question all the same. I might end up theming the posts if there’s lots around a particular subject, or they might all be wrapped into one. I’ll also be offering up some nice new images each time to go with some of the answers too, if you’re more into pictures than words you won’t be forgotten about!

I hope this sounds like something you’ll be keen to get involved in or just read from time to time. I’m definitely excited to get to know you guys a bit better in the process and hopefully be able to help with any queries, great or small, going forward.

I’ll get the first proper set of answers up in the next few weeks so get firing the questions over asap….

  • Hey Lucy, I’ve been following your blog for a while because I absolutely love your style. I was wondering if you could explain your process of defining your personal style and perhaps list a few closet staples you think are absolute essentials? Thanks :) x

    • Great question. Will definitely answer this in the first proper answers post soon xx

    Hi Lucy, love your blog and your style! In your opinion, for a graduate wanting to get in the fashion journalism/writing industry that is already super competitive, what would you recommend they do to stand out other than doing continuous internships? I feel like even internships these days aren’t even enough! Do you think having a ‘side hustle’ like your own blog or video channel or something over social media could help put yourself out there? Thanks so much :)

    • Such a great question and I agree things are changing a lot. Have lots of thoughts on this… Will answer properly in the next post. xx

    Hello Lucy,
    I tried to send you emails, but it never worked… I am about to visit London and I was wondering if you could give me/us your best addresses (shopping, food …) All the places that are your favorites !!
    Thank you !!

    • Have loads to share! I’ll be doing first post week after next will that be ok for you time wise? xx

      • Louise Dramard

        I’ll be in London next week end from the 3rd of April to the 5th … xx

    Hi Lucy, I notice you carry a lot of smaller bags and clutches, and wondered what wallet/purse you use in them. Actually could you please do a ‘what’s in my bag’, because I’m nosy. Love your blog and instagram!

    Hi Lucy, I was wondering how you organise/store your clothes, shoes and accessories…and whether you have any tips and tricks. I find that the messier I am, the harder it is to be bothered to put outfits together, and the more likely to forget what I have. p.s. I adore your blog and reading it is such a pleasure

  • Hi Lucy, I bought some Gucci loafers (same as yours) and theyre relatively new. Wearing them with tights/socks they dont make a noise but with bare feet they sometimes make fart-like noises! Wondered if that happened with yours? I know they fit but perhaps it might be because they’re quite narrow shoes? I love them so much, your style was my incentive to buy them!

    Hi Lucy,
    For your Ask Lucy series, two things: First, I’d love to know your style icons of women over 40. I love your blog and sense of style, which I think it timeless for women of any age (I’ve bought a good few items from brands I’ve seen on your blog). Second, with all the fabulous clothing, bags, boots and shoes you acquire, I’d love to hear/see your process for how you keep it all organised in a way that inspires pairing your outfits. Keep up the great work- this is the one blog I follow for style all year round, you truly are a talent! (air kisses from this 48 YO)

    Hi Lucy! What is the brand & model of your compact/mirrorless camera? Looking for a good compact and I’d really appreciate your feedback :) Thanks!

  • Ashlee

    Hi Lucy, I would love to know what style your Celine sunglasses are that you have worn in a few posts, they’re so nice but I can’t seem to find what the exact style is called! Also I have been wanting some RE/DONE jeans for a while and was wondering what style were the pair that you wore in your ‘The Rule of Opposites’ post and where your purchased them from. I noticed the link in the post led to the Selfridges site but the jeans looked slightly ripped and it was difficult to tell from the post if yours were the same! I love reading your blog and your personal style is always amazing xx

    Hi Lucy!
    I am also a blogger, but I just launched mine last July. I was wondering what made your blog a success and what can I do to gain more readers? I hope to hear from you soon or see this question on a future post! Love your style and your photos are amazing by the way!

    Hey Lucy. Longtime reader here and so happy you’re doing this! Three questions I’d have for you:

    1. For weddings and events, any strategy for dressing? Go-to brands or resources? I tend to be more casual – like you! – and find it hard to get inspired for fancier dress occasions. With “wedding season” looming, I’d love for you to talk a little about it.

    2. Saw that another reader asked this, but I think your guide to London would be amazing. I studied abroad there back in 2007 but I feel like a lot has changed. Also would love recs on hotels / airbnbs…

    3. Books! I love when you feature what you’re reading. An ongoing list or a list of your top 10 must-reads would be awesome.

    • Some great questions – will get stuck into them for the next one! xx

  • Layla

    Fab idea, I have a question for you! Just about to move into a new flat in London and was wondering if you had any top tips for storage/making the most of space?! The pics of your flat always look so nice and uncluttered and I seem to remember you saying you don’t have a gigantic place! Xx

  • Val

    Hi Lucy! I would love to know your answer to these two
    questions:

    1. What tips and recommendations would you give us for these
    mornings when you wake up not feeling very glowing because of long working
    hours or tiredness?
    I don’t know if you have ever experienced that because you
    always look gorgeous and super fresh-faced :) In my case I always go for red lipstick, but I
    would love to know if you have other tricks to enhance beauty self-esteem.

    2. As much as you love travelling, have you ever lived aboard?
    If this is the case, how was your experience?

    Just to finish, congratulations on your blog!! I read every
    single post, and I enjoy them all, from the ones dealing with fashion and style
    to those in which you give us your view on happiness, daily routines, travels
    or deco.
    Many thanks! xxxx

    • Great questions… Thanks so much, will answer in full soon xx

  • Danielle McBain

    Where did you get the dress you are wearing in the picture? Thank you. X

    • Free People this time last year (an oldie I’m afraid). xx

  • Olivia

    I’m going on holiday to Morocco for 5 days what on earth can I pack with offending anyone? I’m headed to Marrakesh, literally any advice would be so appreciated! Love your blog!

    Please helppppp! xxxxxxx

  • Natalie

    My question is: if you had to choose just one lipstick for the rest of your life, which would it be?
    xx

  • This is a great way to bond with your followers, I love it! I don’t have many specific questions, since I’m a pretty new follower, but I was wondering just your base story as in, how did you get started or what inspired you?

    Hi Lucy!

    I love the style of your instagram photos – I was just wondering what filters you use & if you have any editing tips?

    Thanks!

  • milanadjanski

    nice

  • Would love to see the follow up blog post link to this, as there’s so much I would love to know about your career journey x

  • Hi Lucy!
    I know this question must have been repeated a tonn, but what would your advise be for a a blogger who is, like me, just starting a blog and want to eventually work for myself? Something you wish somebody told you when you have just started?
    Thanks!
    xx
