Let’s keep our glasses raised in celebration of the international day of the woman. Meet yet another stylish female out there. Welcome to Diane’s Style Diary. Enjoy this style journey and make sure to take a souvenir back with you:)
In a few words tell us who you are… My name is Diane Attienyo, I am from Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire and I’m a Junior in college majoring in Finance (I know nothing related to fashion haha). I’m kind of a simple person, I love reading, having fun with my friends and recently I found myself enjoying DIYing stuff =)
What is your dressing style? What influences your style choices? That is always the hardest question to answer for me because I don’t really have a name to define my style, I’m always trying different things, I’m not stuck on one style, but the things they all have in common is that it is definitely colorful~ I am a HUGE color lover, so I always make sure to include a color touch to my outfits!
All time favourite shops/clothing brands. I don’t really have one, but I really like to shop at H&M, Forever 21, etc.
My beauty secret is...I’m always keeping it simple, but I really like gloss eyeliner! They really highlight the eyes and even if you don’t like to wear a lot of make-up (like me) it really makes a huge difference!
What is the most beautiful thing about you and how do you accentuate it? It’s funny because it is directly related to the previous question! I like my eyes a lot, and I always put those gloss eyeliner because they highlight them even more!
Any insecurities? I used to be very insecure about my body, I am not saying I am totally feeling super duper confident but I learned to appreciate the way I look and to love myself! Because if you don’t love yourself first, who will? I also was very shy, and I still am even if it’s much less than before, I’m still working on it though 🙂
Your favourite music track would be… I listen to so many different kind of music that it’s really hard for me to choose one, but if I should choose I will round up to 2: the first will be “Speed of Sound” by Coldplay. I love Coldplay, they’re just so amazing to me! The second will be “Stranger in Moscow” by Michael Jackson. He is my idol, I love him!
Comment: ‘If you got it, flaunt it’ …I agree and disagree at the same time. It’s important to be confident about yourself and if you have something you’re proud of you surely should embody it, but it must not transform into cockiness. One thing I hate is cocky people, so yeah for confidence and NO for cockiness.
If your life was a movie, what would be its title and who would play you? It would be “From Zero To Hero” lol because that is basically how I would characterize myself, and I would love Beyonce to play me, she’s another idol of mine, I love her!
Your house is in flames, what one item would you save out of your closet and why? Probably my computer, but I’m not sure about that yet. It is kind of a hard decision :S
Your all time fashion icon is… I totally adore Blake Lively! First of all she’s gorgeous, and she’s so feminine and has a variety of style! She is totally an inspiration for me!
Your favourite quote. “Even if things don’t go out your way, never give up, there are better things ahead”.

What’s your advice to young people? Life might throw rocks at you, but it’s not a reason to be a defeatist. You will fall many times, but the difference is whether you choose to stay on the ground or if you stand up. Never give up and always follow your dreams.
How much fun did you have reading this? Bucket loads I guess! If you have a style diary to share please email firstname.lastname@example.org or 00447835476378.
