Contemporary Faces Of Our Culture: Kelly Schneider
Popularly known for her blog Diamonds For Dimes, Kelly Schneider describes herself the best – “Just a 20-something girl with a shopping problem that’s trying to make it less of a problem and more of a blog.”
Starting out as a regular in the digital marketing space, Kelly saw it as a natural progression for her career to start a fashion blog. With over 20,000 followers on Instagram over a short span of time, Kelly has grown her organic reach by implementing her own market knowledge and experience.
An advocate for affordability, Kelly strives to leave a sizable impact on her female fans, whom she hopes to inspire to take up the mantle of the next age of entrepreneurs.
Kelly’s work and dedication to becoming a successful entrepreneur are why she is our next pick for our series – the Contemporary Faces of our Culture. Be it through her blog, or her social media presence, we hope Kelly will continue to inspire and innovate future entrepreneurs and fashionistas!
How did you get started becoming a digital fashion influencer?
I really just went out on a limb and started my blog. I worked in digital marketing at the time and felt I knew enough about social media that I had to give it a shot. It’s funny looking back at my first few photos – it’s really crazy how the quality of my content has improved over time.
For all of our audience who may not be familiar with you yet, how would you describe the style of your brand?
That’s a tough one! I’m a girly-girl at heart, but love mixing classic pieces with things that are a bit edgier – I think that’s what makes an outfit interesting.
What was your biggest source of inspiration in becoming the role model and leader you are today?
I would have to say, my parents! Thanks to them, I was lucky enough to attend an amazing school (shout out to Providence College) and really wanted to use everything I learned there to start something on my own. Both of them are extremely hard working and supportive.
What societal issues are particularly important to you and do you champion/advocate for any of these issues in your work?
I really strive to prove that a woman can be interested in fashion and beauty, while still being independent, professional, and incredibly driven. I hope that my blog inspires other women to be their own boss.
What is the biggest reason people should tune into your channels and start following you?
I think my content differentiates itself from other blogs because my outfits are all super affordable (hence the name, Diamonds for Dimes). I’m focused on finding the latest trends at an affordable price point, so it’s really accessible for everyone.
