Getting the Q&A Treatment: Michelle Madsen from TAKE AIM

We all love learning mundane things about the people who fascinate us, right? So in an effort to tap into our shameless voyeuristic tendencies, we started a Q&A series with the people of Instagram who tug at our heartstrings. This week we're chatting with the über cool Michelle Madsen from the ever-inspiring TAKE AIM blog. Well, the tables have turned: we're taking aim at you, Michelle.

Michelle Madsen might be based in Los Angeles, but her style could very much embody that of the most native of New Yorkers. It's sharp, clean, focused and has that incredibly hard to execute minimalist quality. It's no wonder that in a short three years, she's garnered legions of fans that are drawn to her impeccable sartorial sensibility, but also to the underlying inspirational message that is at the root of her blog: take aim at what you love.

There is just simply no way that a tag line with a call-to-action would fly under the radar, amiright?! When you love what you do, the world notices, and whether it's hanging out with blogger BFF Lisa Dengler or displaying her style chops on her beautifully curated Instagram gallery, Michelle has captivated our attention and then some.
