“I think my style has more to do with my mum, she’s a fashionista”
Read excerpts from the interview below:
What do you do?
I am a style blogger, stylist and business owner.
Where are you based?
I am a Lagosian, LOL. Based in Lagos, Nigeria
Are you a full time fashion blogger?
No I’m not. I have an 8-5 job, an online thrift store (@thethriftstoreng) and I am also a stylist.
When & How did you get into Fashion blogging?
I first tried my hands at it in 2011 during my I.T but I didn’t have time to continue when I resumed back to school. I decided to start all over in 2015 when I started working.
What is the inspiration behind your sense of style?
I think my style has more to do with my mum. She’s a fashionista and was always dressing me up in not only cute outfits that were meant children, she let me mix and match and that’s what I still do. That’s why I love street style wears because you can actually mix and match anything and still find a way to look fabulous.
From your instagram feed, it seems like you wear a lot of BLUE and you also love wearing prints. Is Blue your favorite color?
LOL, not a lot of people notice that. My favorite color is purple but when it comes to fashion pieces, I prefer blue.
Which do you prefer, Heels or Sneakers?
That’s hard, I actually can’t decide. My love for both is on a fifty-fifty level to be honest. I’m a sneaker head as much as the heels lover.
Who is your favorite fashion designer?
I actually don’t have one but I have a few that I like ; Adidas, Chanel, Yves saint Laurent, Deola Sagoe, Vera Wang etc.
What brands do you currently work with?
Currently, I’m not working with any although I have some of them in the works already and plans should be finalized very soon.
Describe your sense of style in 3 words.
Edgy, Fun & Relatable
What is that favorite accessory that you cannot leave the house without?
Honestly, I’m not a fan of accessories so you will most likely see me outside without earrings, wristwatch or necklace. I’m more about the outfit LOL.
Apart from fashion, what other things do you have great interest in?
Media. I am a Mass Communication graduate and I still find myself greatly drawn towards the broadcast media, I hope to pursue a career in it soon.
Do you have a personal website?
Apart from my blog? I don’t.
Any future plans for you in the world of fashion?
Yes! Although I cannot sew clothes & I don’t plan to learn either, I design most of my clothes and hope to have a ready-to-wear line in the future and also my own shoe line because I’m obsessed with shoes.
