I have been dying to put up this diary but I had to save it for Friday. Gloria is good and knows her stuff when it comes to style. Her refreshing blog has inspired me over and over. Having her diary featured on ABY (Art Becomes You, do I need to spell it out?) was a must. Now that it’s finally here, let’s not waste any time but delve straight into it.
Hi! My name is Gloria. Born in Nigeriabut raised and living in England. I’m a recent graduate, still job hunting but working part-time as a sales assistant. My main interest at the the moment is my personal style blog http://journeyofstyle.blogspot.co.uk/, which I started recently with the purpose on keeping an eye on how my style changes over time.
What is your dressing style? It’s hard to name my dressing style but at the moment, I think my style is casual with a twist. My outfits are pretty much simple and casual but I sometimes like to elevate it with a pair of nice heels. My style choices are influenced by the blogs I read, streetstyle, tumblr and even magazines.
Which brands or designers ‘speak to you’ the most? I love Helmut Lang, Christian Louboutin, Giussepe Zannotti, and Alexander Wang just to name a few but at the moment I just love and appreciate them from a distance because I am a girl on a budget. My income doesn’t allow that kind of indulgence yet so I stick to H&M, Zara, Topshop and ASOS.
Girl on a budget, we definitely have that in common. Any beauty secrets? Drinking lots of water…when I do this strictly, I always see a change in my skin.
Favourite make-up brands. My favourite makeup brands are MAC and Bobbi Brown.
What is the most beautiful thing about you and how do you accentuate it? Hmm well I love my full lips which a accentuate with bright lipsticks.
If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. with whom would it be and why? Probably Beyonce…she’s a very private person and I would love to see what her life is like for a week. Or maybe Victoria Beckham, I wouldn’t mind being married to David Beckham for a week.
Your favourite music track would be…? This is quite hard but right now I love any song from Frank Ocean’s album Channel Orange.
What is your favourite trend right now? I have been loving an all white outfit. I love how crispy and clean they turn out.
Comment: ‘If you got it, flaunt it’…If you got it, flaunt…but in a tasteful and classy manner.
If your life was a movie, what would be its title and who would play you? Hmm if my life was a movie, it would be called “In Her Shoes” and it would be played by Beyonce.
Your top 5 must-haves:
1. Skinny Jeans…preferably black 2. Black blazer 3. White or grey t-shirt or vest 4. A pair of lovely strappy heels 5. A big bag…to throw everything I need in, I’m Mary Poppins with my big bags.
Your house is in flames, what one item would you save out of your closet and why? If my house was in flames and I knew my family were safe, then I’d save my iPhone because I’m pretty much attached to that thing. Or maybe my Louis Vuitton bagor my shoes lol.
Your all time fashion icon is… I have a few fashion icons…The Olsen twins, Carrie Bradshaw, Victoria Beckhamand Olivia Palermo.
Your favourite quote/saying “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself”.This is one of my favourite quotes because I find the idea of finding yourself a little bit of a misconception.
