Mia Oliver is the latest BGKI to tell us about her style…
How would you define your personal style?
My personal style is a complex mixture, one day I will dainty and chic, another day I will throw on an oversized men shirt with some thigh highs. So a complex mixture of fashion.
Do you find that you follow fashion trends, or do you play by your own rules?
I definitely play by my own rules, but I do love trends as well. Its what you do with it…instead of doing it like every one else.
Are there any colors you tend to shy away from, and if so why?
I am strictly all nudes,gray and black, with some color exceptions. I always try everything though, I think its more of the piece than the color.
When you hear the term “Black Girl Killing It” what comes to mind?
A woman of color of course.
Do you accept anyone’s critique or are you confident in your style choices?
I am a very open person I like to hear what people have to say, Now do I change my style no, but do I listen yes.
As a child were you always into clothes or did you grow into your own fashion sense?
I have always been into clothes, talk about the hardest 4 year old to get ready for pre-k.
Do you participate in your local fashion scene?
Yes, I run a fashion blog beautyandthefox.blogspot.com that will soon have street fashion so I am super excited to reach out to the community.
How does your day to day life factor into your wardrobe choices?
It just depends on the mood honestly if I am feeling lazy my clothes are over sized if I am on the go a maxi skirt will do.
What is your greatest fashion pet peeve?
Neon colors that do not mesh and are childishly put together…over it.

My fav. trend right now is the platforms! gotta love em.
