Glam doesn't even begin to describe Christina DeFillippo's style! Christina is the fashionista behind the aptly titled personal style blog, Oh So Glam. This online style star keeps her page updated regularly with her cute and trendy day to day looks, which range from flowy feminine tops, colored blazers, well tailored skinny jeans, and just about everything in between. She definitely knows how to mix feminine and trendy pieces effortlessly. We here at Teen Fashion love her fashion forward yet attainable approach to style and were more than excited when she took time out of her busy schedule to sit down with us and give us insight into what inspires her style and a few tips to take home as well.

Teen Fashion: What sets your style and your blog apart from others on the scene?
Christina DeFilippo: I started Oh So Glam a little over a year ago and there are now more style/fashion blogs than ever before! I think what sets me apart from other bloggers is my location. Living in Connecticut definitely impacts my style and it's been so fun to document the change of seasons we're lucky to experience here in New England! The background of my pictures helps to tell the story of what I'm wearing and there is no shortage of scenery!

TF: Fall is right around the corner; how do you plan on staying stylish during the colder months?
CF: Fall is by far my favorite season to dress for. I love layering and also love the different textures that come along with a colder season. I love to mix and match sequins, faux fur, leather, and metallics which definitely "edge out" my look! I also love black tights... they make everything look so chic!

TF: What is your favorite look you've posted to your blog so far?
CF: I loved wearing this very girlie Free People dress and throwing on a military inspired jacket from Zara and my cowboy boots to make the look more unexpected and relaxed (from the post Let's Don't Call it A Night).

TF: You always looks so stylish on your trips to Fashion Week and IFB Con! Do you have any tips for packing and staying stylish while traveling?
CF: Basics go a long way! I make sure that I pack jeans, blouses, dresses, and shoes that are on the neutral side so they will go with anything. I use accessories to personalize my looks, like a patterned scarf or statement necklace. Blazers are also a must when I travel, they keep me warm and are so functional when taking a look from day to night!

TF: What are some of your favorite beauty products of the moment?
CF: bareMinerals READY Foundation (with SPF 20) is incredible at smoothing out my complexion and protecting me from the sun. I also LOVE Benefit's 'They're Real' mascara.

TF: What blogs do you follow?
CF: I read so many and am constantly finding new favorites thanks to Pinterest and meeting other bloggers, but these are a few favorites: A Fashion Love Affair, Gal Meets Glam, Devon Rachel, Saucy Glossie, Seams for a Desire, Living in Color Print, & Angel Food Style!

TF: What tips can you give teens to make their style standout like yours does?
CF: Have fun with your style... it's YOURS! I use my outfits as a way to convey how I'm feeling at that moment and I find with time that my style is constantly changing and growing. In order to feel confident, it's SO important to know your body and never wear something just because it's trendy. Find styles that work for you and play up your assets!
