SMV x ASOS Girl Talk / by Sami Miro

I've been an ASOS fan for years now. They sell an insanely wide array of awesome clothes and accessories, most of which are extremely affordable. The shoe section is especially bomb.  ASOS Marketplace, however, is secretly my favorite section. There you can find vintage clothing from all over the world and buy directly from independent labels. Needless to say, when they reached out to me for a little Girl Talk interview, I was all about it. Below you can find the interview and learn a little more about me and my take on style. Thanks ASOS!

Sami Miro is the 27-year-old LA-based model and blogger that you need to know about. Why? Having become jaded with her "corporate marketing job," Sami decided to pursue her true obsessions: fashion, beauty and style. She's just launched her own website, samimiro.com, and it's full of styling tips and the glossiest #OOTDs you've ever seen. 

We first noticed Sami on Instagram as a bleach-blonde babe — she's now transitioned back to her raven hair and wears a choker and distressed denim like no one else we know. Oh, and she's 100% Zac Efron's other half. Go girl. Shop her edit of ASOS below...
