What is your full name?
What do you do?
I work in retail but, I blog and make hair on the side
Where are you from and where are you based?
I’m from Benin City, Nigeria. I moved to Canada about 7 years ago. I live in Toronto now
What inspired you to be a fashion blogger?
I’ve always had a place for fashion in my heart. I used to design outfits when I was younger and make my mum take me to tailors with my funny sketches. I didn’t pursue it seriously until last year when I was so unhappy with my job. After much research, I figured there’s a lot of work to be done but it’s possible. I decided I wanted more for myself and now I’m working on making my dreams a reality
How long have you been a fashion blogger?
A little over 1 year, I have an old instagram page (@eviyay) that I don’t use anymore
What’s the name of your blog?
I’m actually working on that right now but it’ll be on my new instagram once it’s done so follow me (@ivie_ose)
I see a lot of corporate shoes with your outfits, do you ever wear sneakers, and how often?
If you follow me, you’ll know I love some sneakers in my life! I don’t know what I was doing before my friend introduced me to the sneaker world because they go with almost everything. A must in every wardrobe.
What would you describe as the perfect outfit for you?
I’m very tempted to say a body-fitted dress, chokers and heels but I love a good over-sized outfit. Oversized shirts and wine is my mood currently lol
What persons or brands do you currently work with?
I got the chance to work with Pauleanna Reid, a Toronto based writer, on her women’s day blog recently. I’m always up for empowering women, especially those who have little support systems or feel alone.
I see a mix of everything in your style – sneakers, heels, classy and street. Describe your sense of style in 3 words.
1 word, versatile
What is your favorite sneaker brand?
Adidas, but H&M has nice affordable sneakers every season
Heels or Sneakers?
What is your favorite color?
It changes all the time but I like nude colours right now
Name 3 of your favourite fashion accessories
Chokers, rings and belts…in that order
Apart from fashion, what are you other interests?
I like the business of fashion; I’m interested in what goes on before the final products hit the stores and the craziness behind the scenes. Also, I love social media…who doesn’t lol
Any future plans for you in the world of fashion?
Yes! Apart from my blog, I’m hoping to start a YouTube channel before the year runs out. Hopefully I can connect with people from different walks of like who share something similar, no matter how little, and people who want to grow with me.
Interact with Ivie on Social Media
