It’s Friday and celebrating my kick-off into the weekend with a Style Diary of the very elegant and beautiful Priscilla of Prissy Savvy. The Style Diary segment throws more light on the fashion & style dos and don’ts of fashion bloggers on the scene. It’s also a way to introduce your blog to new audiences. If you’d love to be featured on Style Diary, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details!
But first, let’s get to know Prissy:
I am Ghanian-American currently residing in Maryland. Contrary to beliefs, I am very shy and it takes me a while to get close to people. I love to shop, travel, and spend time with my family.
ABY: How would you describe your style and what influences your style?
My style is chic, classy, and sophisticated. My style is influenced by my mood at the moment, various images and magazine, and street fashion.
ABY: Favourite high end & high street brands?
I don’t think I have a particular one, but if I must choose, I would say Manolo Blahnik. I think the brand is classic and every girl should have that “hey lover” feeling. I also love Gianvito Rossi. This brand is THEE most comfortable designer shoes I own. I just bought a pair of Manolo Blahnik and Gianvito Rossi pumps and can’t wait to rock them. High street brand will definitely be Asos and Zara.
ABY: If you had the power to, which one fashion store / boutique would you wipe out from the face of this earth and why???
I don’t want to knock anyone’s hustle, but those IG boutiques that specializes in bodycons needs to stop!
ABY: What do you splurge on?
I tend to splurge mostly on shoes and bags. These pieces can make any ordinary outfit dope!
ABY: Apart from fashion, what interests you? I’m a sucker for books and novels 😉 I’m literally running out of places to keep them!
I love helping the less fortunate. I had the opportunity to visit a shelter over the holiday and it was one of the most rewarding experiences ever.
ABY: You look flawless. Any beauty secrets or tips you’d like to share. Favourite make-up brands. etc.
Aww thank you, totally blushing. I actually don’t wear much make up. The closest thing I wear is lipstick lol. My two favorites are ruby woo and rebel by mac.
ABY: What fragrance are you loving at the moment?
I’ve been wearing Coco Chanel for years. I also love Chloe.
ABY: Yesss! Chloe is my all time fave too. Your favourite music tracks right now…?
Ummm… Music is not what it used to be. I want 90s music back. I will say this: I love practically all songs by Hillsong and Israel Houghton.
ABY: Your favourite trends currently?
Although, I don’t think it’s a trend because I’ve been wearing it for years; I love neutral/camel tones.
ABY: The trends I just don’t get are…
I just want bodycon dresses to disappear from the face of the earth. I’m so sick of seeing them.
ABY: If you had to deactivate all but one social media account, which would you keep and why?
Noooo that’s not a fair question. I need to stay connected! I refuse to answer.
ABY: LOL! Which profession has the coolest/ most fashionable uniform?
Maybe models? They get to wear the latest designer items first.
-Which TV show has/had the best fashion? Revenge & Scandal for me 😉
I don’t watch much TV other than Scandal and now love Empire. So I’ll have to agree with you on Scandal. I just love Liv’s style. Is Revenge still on? I watch the first two seasons and got tired of it lol.
ABY: Your ultimate fashion no-nos are…
I really can’t stand clothes that are too tight. I think it lacks creativity. Just because is tight does not mean it looks good.
ABY: Your top 5 wardrobe must-haves.
A pencil skirt, bad black pumps, skinny jeans, a white button down and a v-neck t-shirt. All these items are classic and versatile.
ABY: Your best fashion buy EVER…
My Jimmy choo anouk pumps. They are the sexiest shoes I own to date, but also the most uncomfortable. I love to fiercely suffer through them.
ABY: Your fashion icons…
Diahann Carroll and Victoria Beckham. Both women are the epitome of class and sophistication.
ABY: Your favourite quote/saying
“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness” by none other than Oprah Winfrey.
Thanks for letting us peek into your closet Prissy. Your style is giving me Olivia Pope sophisticated chic.
