Monday Muse in Depth: Locks & Trinkets

MondayMuseLocksTrinkets

 Meet Enocha Tellus of Locks & Trinkets. She tells us all about her personal style and journey in the music industry!

What made you start blogging?

I first started blogging as a outlet to share my music before I even really knew what blogging was and that it was the new “thing.” My friend actually introduced me to the world of fashion blogging, I told her I think I want to start posting my outfits and she says, “Oh like Karla’s Closet?” and just like that a whole new world was revealed to me. I had honestly never read a fashion blog until I started one, but I quickly realized that this was right up my alley. I was always known for how I dressed so when I found an outlet to share my love with the world, it just seemed to fit perfectly.

Have you always been fashionable?

Apparently. My mom says I stopped letting her dress me by age 4 because I didn’t like how she styled me! I do remember crying one time because she put me in a polka dot suit and I was NOT having it.

Who do you look to for style advice?

I kind of wear whatever I want so I don’t typically look for advice persay when dressing myself, but I do love to scroll through Tumblr for style inspiration and I love people watching and checking out different fashion blogs. Also, am I the only one that still sometimes finds inspiration from store window displays? Sometimes they dress the mannequins tres chic!

What’s your beauty regimen?

I wear the same makeup day or night. I’m so low maintenance in that way. I’m more concerned with the quality of the makeup than doing crazy different styles.

I wear Makeup Forever HD concealer and foundation, MAC powder and eyeshadow, Anastasia Eyebrow gel (otherwise my eyebrows look cray), Tarte cream liner, Lorac blush, mascara and lipgloss in the ‘ben” color <– it’s like my favorite thing ever.  On days I don’t wear makeup I always make sure to use my Anastasia eyebrow gel and my Lorac lip gloss so it looks like I tried at least a little.

Music seems to be your first love, can you tell us about your experiences?

I have been recording since I was 16 years old. When I went to college I decided to go for Fashion Design, but by age 18-19 I was performing all over nightclubs and bars in Boston and recording every weekend I realized I wanted to go to school for music instead so I finished my undergrad at Berklee College of Music. I’ve had a lot of close calls with some big people in the industry, but now that I look back on it I’m glad nothing panned out because I was too young, the music industry would have eaten me alive. The past couple years my music has been on hold, but I now have a great manager and am starting to work on my very first official album with some amazing people in the industry and I’m very excited about it! :-)

What songs are currently in rotation for you?

No specific songs but I’m loving all things Lorde lately, James Blake and my all time favorite Little Dragon.

Finish the sentence: I never leave home without my camera, my lipgloss, and my cell phone charger.
