Aimee Song a.k.a ‘Song of Style’ seems to live the perfect, never-ending vacation we all dream of. However, this is all just a day’s work for the OG fashion blogger, who has honed her personal image to create a profitable career.
Song was working three jobs when she landed her firs paid gig with Fossil and it was in this moment that she realised she could really make an income from blogging. From here she started negotiating bigger perks for her jobs, before moving into higher paying jobs with brands such as Laura Mercier.
Not only has she maintained her fashion and lifestyle blog alongside her YouTube vlog, she also has a jewellery line and clothing line. Song profits as an ambassador for Dior, Revolve, Giorgio Armani Beauty and Chloe.
She was named to Forbe’s 30 under 30 List and her book, Capture Your Style, also landed a coveted spot on the New York Times best-sellers list. Talk about a superwoman.
