Who is Victoria?
Meet Victoria Taylor. Finally. She screams brave, fearless, and full of confidence for any passion she dreams of and desires. She’s the Modern Woman, effortlessly balancing the many roles we play in life on a daily basis. Honestly, I believe we all have a little Victoria in us. Let’s be realistic for a moment though. This isn’t a perfect world and sometimes life feels like more of a juggling act or a balance beam. We all have fears of failing, making the right choices and taking risks, but I will tell you something. Wondering if you are missing out because you didn’t take the leap of faith and follow all of your dreams is far worse. We each have the ability to pursue our many passions and enjoy true success and happiness in all aspects of life, as well as touching other people’s lives while doing so. Follow along as I take on life’s obstacles, joys, and transitioning phases of Womanhood all through the Psuedonym of Victoria Taylor — The Modern Woman– done through representation of Fashion and my Lifestyle.
Victoria is here to show you that you should have your cake and eat it too! Embrace who you truly are and the multidimensional layers of your identity. Confidently pursue your passions in a fearless way.
You can have it all. You can be The Modern Woman.

What’s your favorite song right now? Currently there are so many it is hard to choose one! But I’d say an all time favorite is Taylor Swift – Blank Space. Yes I am That girl haha! But it just never gets old to me. The one liners and imagery in that song is just so on point. I think it’s a great song to jam out to while getting ready for a fun date night or evening with the girls!
What’s your favorite style to wear? I Absolutely love a feminine fit and flare dress or skirt paired with some fun, new accessories. I feel so girly and pretty whenever I throw one on! I love it because it cinches in the waist while adding a little drama and elegance with the full skirt. Pair with some pearls or trendy rose gold and you’ve got a timeless, classic look with a modern spin!
What’s your guilty pleasure snack-go-to? Anything Birthday Cake!! I love Birthday Cake Ice cream, Birthday Cake Oreos, Birthday Cake Cake Pops… You get the picture! Oh and I Loooove cold Gummy bears. I know I am weird but they have to be cold and the brand Haribo Gold too. The green are my favorite and I seriously wish they would make a bag of just the green flavor! LOL I need to really give them up…
What’s your MUST-HAVE beauty item that you can’t live with out? A good long-wear lip stick. It’s no secret I love the color pink and that goes for my lips too! It instantly brightens my face and makes my eyes pop when I throw on a pink lip stick. My current Favorites are Chanel Long-wear Lip in Shocking Pink, and Armani Liquid Lip Magnet in color 502 Mania.
Who’s the most influential person in your life and why? I would have to say my Mom. I know it sounds cliche but she really is super Mom. Her love is unconditional and she always believes in me. There’s no greater feeling than being able to trust someone fully and realize they only have your best interest at heart. She’s a great Wife, Mom, Cook, is full of personality and energy (energy that I wish I had all the time) and has sacrificed a lot to raise her children in a loving home where we learned the value of a dollar, the value of family, and the blessing of never having to go without. I had the best childhood and that’s something I will always cherish and remember!
What’s the one thing you want to accomplish that you haven’t yet? I recently got certified to Scuba Dive which has always been an interest of mine but a big fear. My first Dive was incredible and it was definitely worth the risk and sacrifice to pursue. It was a huge accomplishment for me but looking at the bigger picture, and something I have not accomplished yet, would be excelling with my Blog into something bigger. I want to be reaching young women in the masses and inspiring them as a positive influence to pursue their dreams and do what you love. I’d really love to start my own clothing line or open a boutique pertaining to the blog also. Victoria Taylor has a nice “designer” ring to it, don’t you think?!
What’s your favorite thing in your closet? So I have these Light Pink Satin Prada Wedges that I pretty much never wear because they are a little too big and a little worn. There’s a story to why I love them so much though. The man I was dating in college got these for me at a pre-owned small shop in Chicago back when we were in our very early 20’s. He was traveling for work while I was with my girlfriends on a Spring break vacation. We both had nothing big financially to our name but he saw the Pink Prada’s in the window of this luxury pre-owned shop and went in there to spend the $80 and surprise me with them. Although Like I said, they are a little big and also a little worn, I will never give them up as they are symbolic of something much more than a Designer Heel. This man ended up becoming my husband several years later and he really is my Prince Charming. 🙂 (Yes I am a total cheese ball and hopeless Romantic).
What’s your fave inspirational quote? My favorite quote is actually more of a verse than a quote. It is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” This was instilled in me as a child and has stuck since. We had the verse read at our wedding and is something I am always reminding myself of. You really can do whatever your heart desires with faith and I hope that you are inspired to do so!
