ABOUT ME

Hi everyone!

I'm Krizia Schiavone, a 22-year-old girl living in Belgium and founder of Shark Attack - Fashion Blog. Coming from an Italian family, fashion has always been a big part of my life. My parents were, and still are, interested in fashion, which resulted in me getting my first Moschino dress at the age of 3 -- And me ripping it after wearing it for 10 minutes. ;)

Living in the small town of Maasmechelen, I've always felt that I didn't 'belong' here. While my style was evolving (quite some fashion faux pas included), others around me seemed be frozen in time. A lot of people made fun of me because I would dress differently, wearing things they weren't used to see. So, I decided to expand my horizons on the World Wide Web and started my own fashion blog in October 2009.

While I share everything that interests me fashion wise, I've noticed that my outfit posts are the most popular ones. Trying to post outfits on a regular base, it's not always possible. I'm still a student and I work in between. I'm always saving up for something, whether it's a bag or a pair of shoes. ;)

Shark Attack started off slowly, but has grown so much over the past year. Thanks to my blog I ...
