Style Diary: Olivia T of Olivia Gold

I’m having a moment this week. But what always puts me in a good mood is this Style Diary segment. Thanks to those of you who have been kind enough to express interest and others who have responded to my bugging emails; I have garnered a handful of diverse stylistas to keep your Thursdays spicy here on ABY. So stay tuned! For a chance to be featured, email artbecomesyou@yahoo.com. Today’s fashion killer is none other than the sizzling London-based Olivia of Olivia Gold. I stumbled upon Tumblr over a year ago and she was sooo good, I just had to get her to spare a few moments for ABY! Here’s what she had to divulge:

ABY: A little bio stats 

Olivia Gold, 23, Nigerian, I work in the beauty industry in brand marketing. I run my own fashion and lifestyle blog. Something interesting about me I LOVE to eat lol, food makes me happy.

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

I would describe m style is minimal with a sexy flare. I love classic pieces that complement the female silhouette. I embrace my curves and love to dress up and feel lad like.

ABY: Favourite high end & high street brands?

My favourite high end brands are Max Mara, Burberry and Celine (will be able to afford it one day soon ;). High street brands I love Zara, Topshop and H&M trend collections. I am actually a shoe girl at heart and love all things shoes.

ABY: If you had the power to, which one fashion store / boutique would you raid and why???

I love this question, my mind starts going crazy thinking what shop I could raid lol. It’s a difficult one but I think when it comes down to it, I would walk into Celine and take everything! I adore their cuts and quality of their pieces and you can really mix and match with tops and bottoms because of the contemporary style.

ABY: What do you splurge on?


ABY: Any beauty secrets or tips you’d like to share?

For me personally wash your face before bed is a must and moisturising. My favourite make up brand is Mac it works for me, I recently tried Nars and was disappointed so I say Mac all the way!

ABY: What fragrance are you loving at the moment?

Hmmm I’m currently shopping for new perfume and my top 3 at the moment are Dior, Calvin Klein and Bulgarvi perfumes

ABY: Your favourite trends currently? 

I would say neutrals, denim on denim and lace detailing dresses they ooze lay like vibes, which is I would say I am channelling this year.

ABY: The trends I just don’t get are…

hmmmmm this is a funny one. I am open minded, I see how others can rock a style and it works for them but not me. So there is nothing I don’t get but I am honest to say that works for her not me!

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

Air hostess, when I was little and travelled I adored their uniform and well-kept together they were and I wanted to be like that.

ABY: Which TV show has/had the best fashion? Revenge & Scandal for me ;)….

Great choices I would say Being May Jane and Single Ladies! Can’t forget a classic Sex In The City too!

ABY: Your ultimate fashion no-nos are…

I would say a short princess cut dress….Hell nah boo lol!

ABY: Your top 5 wardrobe must-haves. 

-A classic pump either Jimmy Choo Anuok or Christian Loubotuin Pigalle,

-A naked open toe sandal (they are super sexy) for me YSL or Stuart Weitzman,

-LBD for sure,

-perfect fit denim jeans they work with everything from day to night

-and lastly a nice fitting blazer.

ABY: Your fashion icons…

Easy my mum as I have grown older I am dressing more like her style and I love it. In the celeb world I love Olivia Palermo’s chic style, J-lo’s sexy flare and Kim Kardashian West.

ABY: Your favourite quote/saying 

Be still and know that I am God’

Booooom! or na? I think BOOOOOOM.

Olivia is one serious MVP when it comes to fashion slaying.

What do you think?
