Her name is Portia and she is a Lawyer & Fashion/Personal Style blogger at JustPorsh. She reveals a bit more about herself and sense of style to us in the excerpts below: What is your full name? Nwaokonko Portia What do you do? I’m a Lawyer (not practicing the Legal Profession tho) & a Fashion/Personal Style Blogger. Where are you from and where are you based? I’m from Abia State, Nigeria and I live in Abuja, FCT, Nigeria. What inspired you to get into fashion blogging? I’ve always loved clothes and as a kid my favorite thing to do was to play dress up. I discovered Fashion Blogging pretty late in life but was every excited about it. I got to share my Passion and Interests with the rest of the world. It seems you love to wear a lot of dresses, tell us more about that.. Lol. Yea. I love dresses. I used to wear a lot of jeans. Owned over 20pairs of them. But over time I started to feel uncomfortable in jeans and started gearing towards skirts and dresses. Then I lost almost 20pounds and started to like what I looked like in fitted dresses & skirts. The love for dresses stuck cos it’s much easier to style… throw it on, add a pair of heels and you are good to go. Lol I know I’m a lazy dresser. On a typical day would you prefer to wear Sneakers or heels? Being 5 3″ got me wearing heels since I was 13. Heels for life! Who is your favorite designer at the moment? I absolutely love Pnina Tornai. My dream is to wear her design someday. I also love Zuhair Murad. I love designers that create classy pieces. What are the three fashion accessories that you cannot leave the house without? Fashion Accessories – Hoop earrings, Sunglasses and a Wristwatch Apart from Fashion what other things do you have great interest in? Fashion is my one true love and it’s a relationship that takes up a lot of time with lil’ or no room for other affairs. Lol But I love Music. I would love to write songs someday. Do you have a personal website? Yes I do. It’s JustPorsh —- JustPorsh Any future plans for you in the world of fashion? Most definitely. I know I’d be blogging for a very long time. I also hope to tap into the creative part of my love for Fashion in the nearest future.
