The party's on and ISQUISOFRENIA rocks!

Have you ever met someone who is nothing like you, but the two of you get on famously? A person who seems your complete opposite but you suspect would be the best drinking buddy on a Friday night, dressed up for nowhere, & just kicking it?  THAT's how I feel about the blogger at Isquisofrenia.  We are very different in temperment and style,  but I LOVE this girl's spirit and style so much, and every one of her outfit posts. Isquisofrenia rocks! She looks part sunset, part whiskey and pure rock-n-roll. 

Case in point:

I mean this chica just looks like fun. I can totally imagine drinking a few brews with her and shooting the shit, on a late Sactown summer night on the porch. Mind you I don't have a porch.  And she doesn't live in Sactown. So I decided to interview her.

CITIZEN ROSEBUD: You've got great style, and you're petite, a little over 5'2" right? Does that affect your style, and how you dress?
 ISQUSOFRENIA: First of all, thank-you for featuring me on your blog!!! I am five feet two inches, and I hate it, to be honest. But, sometimes, it has its advantages. For example a cute tunic can be worn as a dress for me, and that works just fine. I don't think being short affects my style at all. 

 "Isquisofrenia rocks! She looks part sunset, part whiskey & pure rock-n-roll."
CITIZEN ROSEBUD: Ok, where exactly are you? I mean, where do you live? I know you're a fellow Californian, but are you Nor-cal, or So-cal? I'm hoping Nor-Cal, but you're cool, if you're from So-cal, you're still all right by me.
ISQUISOFRENIA: Ha-ha-ha-ha! I live in Southern California. Let's just say I'm 45 minutes away from Los Angeles.  Originally, I'm from South America.
CITIZEN ROSEBUD: What got you blogging? And when did you start blogging?
 ISQUESOFRENIA: At first I wanted to sell my clothes online and then I started seeing really cool girls wearing awesome outfits and then I was like wait maybe I can do the same hahha, so I decided to have my own blog too. I started blogging in Jan 2009.
CITIZEN ROSEBUD: What do you do for fun?
ISQUISOFRENIA: For fun I go to bars, amusement parks, hang out with friends, go to shows & check out bands; that's MY kind of fun.  I really enjoy going to see bands play in small venues. It’s better that way I think, and I drink wine at home for fun too.

CITIZEN ROSEBUD: When I see your outfit posts, I think "rock-n-roll." Does rock music or music in general have an influence of how you dress? 
ISQUISOFRENIA: Yes, I think it does. I know I don’t wear a lot of pants but I love how Iggy Pop just wears those damn tight ass pants with leather jackets, no shirt hahhah and sometimes just listening to rock& roll makes me dress that way I do. I listen to music all the time, especially when I’m getting dressed.

CITIZEN ROSEBUD: Pants or skirts?
ISQUISOFRENIA: Cutoffs shorts=)
CITIZEN ROSEBUD:  Heels or flats?
ISQUISOFRENIA: Chunky heels so maybe heels then?

 CITIZEN ROSEBUD:  Thrift stores or vintage shops?
ISQUISOFRENIA: Well, the tricky part is that vintage shops have such an amazing things but it can be very expensive sometimes, Thrift stores are just affordable. 
CITIZEN ROSEBUD: Coffee or tea? Beer or wine?
 ISQUISOFRENIA: I hate coffee,  so it would be tea.
I like beer (Sierra Nevada )and  wine (Pinot Noir) so both.
CITIZEN ROSEBUD: You always talk about maybe going to a movie in your blog. Tell me, what kind of movies do you like to go see? Are you a movie fan? Any genre in particular?
ISQUISOFRENIA: I LOVE scary movies, I’m not talking about stupid ones like Scary Movie, I'm talking about the really scary ones, horror, thriller, you name it.  And I love movies from the '70s, those are the best.  Those girls are always so beautiful in those kind of flicks!
CITIZEN ROSEBUD:What does your blog name mean? How did you come to naming it "Isquisofrenia"?
ISQUISOFRENIA: It means nothing, just rhymes with schizophrenia, hahha.

CITIZEN ROSEBUD:  List some bands you love. What songs/bands would exemplify your style?
ISQUISOFRENIA: David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Frank Zappa, Wilco, Strange Boys, the Velvet Underground...there's  more, but I can't think of them all right now. Rock-n-roll, punk, garage: whatever you want to call it.
CITIZEN ROSEBUD: Tell me a fun thing to do in your hometown & some of your favorite places to shop.
ISQUISOFRENIA: There’s nothing fun about it, it sucks, hahha but I do enjoy my thrift stores obviously.
CITIZEN ROSEBUD:If you could visit any place in the world for a summer, where would you go?
ISQUISOFRENIA: New Orleans because It makes me think about voodoo dolls, cemeteries, bars, cool people to hang with.

CITIZEN ROSEBUD: In a "perfect world" what WOULD you be doing?  
ISQUISOFRENIA: Having my own vintage shop and be in a band!

Isquisofrenia is well on her way to making her dreams happen. She just recently opened up shop for online fans and followers. You can shop her closet here. And you can keep up with her fabu So-Cal Queso-mania here
