It’s Thursday and time for another steaming Style Diary! If you’d love to be possibly  featured here please email artbecomesyou@yahoo.com and simply indicate interest! Today’s Style Diary is the gorgeous modelesque Seyi of In fashion I Trust. Here’s what she had to say about her style dos and donts:

ABY: A little bio stats.

Hi! My name is Seyi Famuyiwa. I was born in Nigeria but have lived in Los Angeles all my life. I’m 23 years old currently enrolled in a Masters of Business Administration program in Washington, D.C.


ABY: How would you describe your style and what influences your style?

To be honest, I can’t really put a label on the type of style I wear. I enjoy being able to fuse different style pieces together into something that I am completely comfortable rocking in public. I think what influences my style the most is how I’m feeling at the moment. Some days I feel like being SUPER dressy and then some days I’m like eh, some boyfriend jeans and a white tee will suffice.

 ABY: Favourite high end & high street brands?

I’m not really into name brands to be honest…mainly because I can’t afford it right now on a grad student budget haha! But I do like some of the Balmain pieces and Giuseppe Zannoti is definitely one of my faves currently.

ABY: If you had the power to, which one fashion store / boutique would you wipe out from the face of this earth and why???

Juicy Couture. Their items are so cheesy to me. Too much bling!

ABY: What do you splurge on?

SHOES!

 ABY: Any beauty secrets or tips you’d like to share. Favourite make-up brands. etc.

Highlighter (MAC’s iridescent powder) is my HOLY GRAIL! Plop a little right above your cheek bones with a fan brush and VOILA! Walk out the house looking like a golden goddess. For my WOC (women of color), please please please buy MAC’s Taupe matte lipstick…one of the best nudes for WOC hands down!

ABY: What fragrance are you loving at the moment?

Victoria Secret’s “Breathless”…it smells so girly and delicious

 

ABY: Your favourite trends currently? 

Midi skirts! And the oversized coat…yes yes yes!

ABY: The trends I just don’t get are…

I never understood why people said to not wear white after Labor Day…like I honestly want to know where that came from because, it doesn’t make sense Lol

ABY: This question is just for fun lol! Which profession has the coolest/ most fashionable uniform?

Hmmm, the profession where I can wear what I want 😛

ABY: Which TV show has/had the best fashion? 

I’m not a big tv watcher but I have to agree, Scandal’s wardrobe is on point. Ooo…and House of Cards!

ABY: Your ultimate fashion no-nos are…

White heels…I have yet to see a pair that I really like…so until then…NOPE!


ABY: Your top 5 wardrobe must-haves. 

Black Jeans

Dark Wash Blue Jeans

Plain Tee (White or Gray)

Black Booties

A nice coat

(That’s an outfit right there lol)

ABY: Your best fashion buy EVER…

This pair of black booties I bought during a Cyber Monday sale from Shoe Dazzle a few years back…probably one of my favorite go to shoes because it can be dressed up or dressed down.

ABY: Your fashion icons…

Solange and Rihanna…SLAY!


ABY: Your favourite quote/saying 

“Everything happens for a reason” so cliché but honestly, it’s amazing/crazy how things work out the way they do, even if it’s not in the way we expected it.

ABY: Stay in touch! your contact info and where we can find you online:

    She’s an absolute doll and I wish I was near LA to shoot with her. Love her fashion quote about some days “some boyfriend jeans and a white tee will suffice”
