It’s Thursday and time for another steaming Style Diary! If you’d love to be possibly featured here please email firstname.lastname@example.org 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?
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.
Dark Wash Blue Jeans
Plain Tee (White or Gray)
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:
