- What first got you into fashion?
Just like many girls, I started loving fashion at a very young age. My mother is a woman you could classify as a fashionista. I grew up watching her wearing all the latest styles in both African and Western fashion. Although she would not let me most times, I remember going in her closet trying on her latest shoes and glasses. Even though growing up I was very limited when it came to options, I still made it work.
2.What made you want to start a blog and become a content creator/influencer?
I started my blog because I wanted to fill a gap and have a creative outlet to share my thoughts and outfits with the world. I thought it was equally important for young girls especially black girls to have someone to look up to.
3.Tell us one thing people don’t know about you?
People are always amazed at how tall I really am when they meet me in person. I thought it was obvious ha ha!
4.If you were going to (insert awards show), who would you want to have dress you and why?
Well, there aren’t a lot of designers that make beautiful gowns for plus size women, but if I have to choose one among the ones I love it would be TADASHI SHOJI. I chose him because the dresses are gorgeous and I will always support a brand that cares and designs for my curves.
Tah tah for now,
