Iris is an amazing artist and when I saw that she did a couple bomb photoshoots on her blog I knew straight away I wanted to feature her, munch on some popcorn while you read this…
How would you define your personal style?
Ummm. I have a few words… crazy, bold, colorful, black, jeans, chucks, funky, dirty, sexy lol, tee shirts, shoes.. lol
Do you find that you follow fashion trends, or do you play by your own rules?
I wear whatever I like.. if it happens to be a trend then whatever but i don’t wear things because they are trendy :)
Are there any colours you tend to shy away from, and if so why?
No I love colors.. Im not too fond of white but i wear it sometimes…
When you hear the term “Black Girl Killing It” what comes to mind?
Black girls killing it! Doing and wearing whatever they want!
Do you accept any one’s critique or are you confident in your style choices?
Some people might not like how I dress but I don’t care.. I wear what makes me feel good. I mean I might ask a friend or my sisters, “Is this cute?” lol and they might say “no! eww that’s ugly!” and I’ll ask again lol and I’ll still get it lol
As a child were you always into clothes or did you grow into your own fashion sense?
Yes I wanted to be a fashion designer, I was just to impatient to sew; but I wasn’t as bold as I am now. I had my moments though, where I would rock platinum blond hair lol to my tom boy phase so I don’t know I guess maybe I was, I was finding myself lol
Do you participate in your local fashion scene?
Ummm I attend more artsy events. Not as much as I should though…
How does your day to day life factor into your wardrobe choices?
Well I paint like 24/7 so most of the time I’m in a dirty paint tee with jeans, shorts and sweatpants. But sometimes I feel like getting dressed and sometimes I just go out looking like a dirty painter or just a dirty girl lol. But I like dressing up! Clothes are fun! Sometimes I might be in a crazy mood so I wear crazy clothes and sometimes I’m just like whatever and that exactly how I look with my fave buted chucks and sometimes I feel sexy and I want to put on a tight dress.
What is your greatest fashion pet peeve?
I cant think of any.. Nothing really pisses me off to where Im just like ohhh no! I mean to each is own. Wear whatever makes you happy…
What is your favourite trend right now?
SKY HIGH PLATFORM HEELS! I think I’m kinda tall for a girl and I use to hate being taller then guys when I was young now I don’t care! I want to be walking over you! it makes me feel powerful! lol I love tall girls in sky high heel! so yes to 7 8 9 10inch heels!
Have you ever tried your hand at design or sewing?
Yes, you could always catch me drawing girls in clothes in class. I tried sewing and didn’t have the patience I would never make it to the end. I think I should try taking a class again. I’m designing a little bit now, I paint on shoes (barbeeboots) and I design tee shirts (known for the goal digger tees)
Are there any designers that you like to wear or whose clothing stands out with you?
I don’t really get into name brands! but my friends are soooooo talented! Sammy b! Booga suga! lol
