Mischaela Advani is a fashion, beauty, and lifestyle blogger known for her sense of personal style and witty fashion and lifestyle commentary. The former fashion model has been photographed even in her off duty style by the likes of Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist, South Korea’s Cracker Your Wardrobe street style fashion magazine, and VanityFair.com with an honorable mention for their International Best Dressed List.

She started her blog BigCityBlonde.com as a media platform for smart fashion content for no-nonsense well-educated, city dwelling career women with a secondary focus on lifestyle topics like career, technology, fitness, and nutrition. The blog is named after its editor, who moved from the South to the Big City, trading in her pearls and cardigans for black patent stilettos and trench coats. The name has taken on a life of its own, as Big City Blonde, or “BCB” has become Mischaela’s nickname.

Realizing her success as a fashion and beauty blogger was further catapulted by her experience as a fashion model, she sought to create a blogger collective for current and former models. Model Media Collective is platform that allows brands to connect with model bloggers to create more professional quality content or broker deals to host events or openings. The Collective also allows models to connect with each other. The Model Media Collective isn’t Mischaela’s first entrepreneurial venture, the fashion expert established Haus of Labels  in 2010.

Haus of Labels is a designer and couture consignment boutique with international clients from Moscow to Miami. In addition to sourcing, authenticating, and brokering designer and couture pieces, Mischaela also sits on the Board of Directors for The Chicago Fashion Foundation. The Chicago Fashion Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to showcasing Chicago as a world class fashion capital and supporting up and coming fashion design talent.

Mischaela studies classical European ballet at the renowned Joffrey Academy of Dance in Chicago, fulfilling a lifelong ambition to study the art of ballet. Initially dissuaded as a child from pursuing ballet, due to her statuesque height, Mischaela is currently developing a dance fitness discipline that combines ballet movements and modern Bollywood style dance. She is currently studying nutrition and enjoys exploring East meets West approaches to lifestyle, cooking, and health.

She resides in Chicago and tries to visit Bombay annually with her husband and English bulldog, Wimbledon.  You can learn more about her by reading her blog at http://www.bigcityblonde.com or visiting http://www.bollywoodballet.co!
