Women who inspires us: Silje Pauline

Tell us about your self:

I am a 22 year old girl living in Oslo, where I am Co-founder and community manager for Insp. I moved back to Oslo this summer after living in New York for a while, and now I’m here to stay. I have been a blogger since 2013, and I am a vintage and Antique nerd. And btw; Insp is a fashion & beauty platform for young people, where we focus on building each other up and spread love.

How is a normal day for you?

A normal day for me is waking up at 08, then going to the office. I often have meetings with investors and brands, and If not I just stay at the office. After lunch I sometimes attend a fashion or beauty event mixed with work and fun. After 5 o’clock I normally work out, and then I go home to my beautiful apartment to make some great food. I love cooking!


How is your style?

I like to say that I’m a maximalist, which means that I like statement pieces, and items that pops a little. A day without heels is a boring day, and I love to wear colours and mix trends with a hint of feminin touch and a little edge. Let’s just say that you will notice me in a busy street. And btw black is so boring… 

Show us your favourite outfit this year:

What got you interested in what you do?

I never say no to anything, which has lead me to the job I have today. I love meeting new people, and networking is the most important thing in the fashion business. I have always been interested in fashion, but with Insp I can do an impact for young people, and at the same time do fashion. It’s a win-win situation, and I think the interest was innate.

When are you most happy?

If I wake up with the sun in my face, I automatically get happy. A busy life filled with people who care about me, a job that I love and the freedom to do whatever I want makes me super happy.

What is your biggest inspiration source?

Maybe old school, but I love fashion magazines. The style in Sex & the city, 90´s fashion and Insp is also inspiring me every day.

If you got a dream day, what would you do?

Waking up in a skyscraper in New York, wearing a summer dress and heels before going to a rooftop for drinks and socialising with friends. Then maybe some bar-hopping and just enjoying life in the sun, and of course stay in New York forever. I don’t ask for much…

What is the next fun thing you are going to do? 

Every week is a party, but the most exciting thing is our lunch in April, where Insp is going to be a marketplace where you can buy and sell clothes. After that I am looking forward to my big birthday party in June, and then New York the week after.
