My blog has been suffering from a serious unplanned hiatus. i apologize to all my readers. the only gift I can remunerate myself with is this Style Diary from the stunning Nia Groce. She is two words: simple and beautiful. Enjoy her diary.
My name is Nia Groce and I have lived all over the world but mostly grew up in Alabama. I’ve also lived in Germany, London, Qatar, NYC and other cities which all have influenced my fashion style and various passions. Some of the things that I enjoy doing are photography, learning about new cultures and travelling in order to experience new things and learn about all parts of the world. I recently graduated from Howard University with a degree in fashion merchandising and have since moved to Cali to begin a career at Gap’s headquarters in the fall.
My style is quite eclectic but always has a classy sophistication to it. I often add a unique or quirky piece for fun along with splashes of color. I think it’s fashionably smart to stick with classic pieces that are timeless while adding your own flair.
My fashion influence comes from other cultures that I’ve encountered while travelling and living in various cities. I also love vintage and thrift store finds because they are always unique.
Which brands or designers ‘speak to you’ the most? Zara is a brand that “speaks to me” the most and Chloe and Celine are definitely two design houses I identify with for their aesthetic and classic pieces.
-Any beauty secrets? I’m not big on make-up. less is more for me. But I do love a bright lip to help pop up any outfit and always smile (it’s the greatest accessory) 😉
-Favourite make-up brands. NARS has great lipstick colors.
-What is the most beautiful thing about you and how do you accentuate it? I would say my smile because I can often be very serious and business oriented. But when I smile I think it shows a different side of me and I often get complimented on it so I try to always wear one. =)
-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? Queen Nefertiti to experience life in ancient Egypt as a beautiful and elegant queen that is a fashion icon to this day.
-Your favourite music track would be…? Drawn 2 U by Jaffrosax featuring Yukimi Nagano
-What is your favourite trend right now? Peplum!
-If your life was a movie, what would be its title and who would play you? Eclectic Culture – and me?
-Your top 5 must-haves:
-Lots of rings
-Your house is in flames, what one item would you save out of your closet and why? My Nikon. It’s my baby.
-Your all time fashion icon is… My sister =)
-Your favourite quote/saying “Fail Harder” -Dan Weiden
