Those of you that frequent our Facebook fanpage will be familiar with her as she is the face of Black Girls Killing It and I believe it’s due time you guys and gals got to know a little more about her. Meet Page Harris…
What inspires you to blog?
I think the beauty of human expression inspires my blog. Creativity is BIG to me & to be honest I post a lot of things that portray the craziness in my head. Yes fashion is a large part of it but many times it’s not the shirt or the shoes, sometimes it could be the sky or the message the image brings.
How would you define your personal style?
Hmmm, I would have to define my personal style as inconsistent because it varies from day to day. I guess u can say it changes with the weather or switches with my ego. With everything I wear simple or jazzy there has to be a statement. It could be a head wrap, or my shoes, or even the lipstick I wear; something that another person can focus on. Some days I’ll dress like a boy (sag my pants, loosen my shirt) but then I’ll throw some heels on or my favorite pair of booties demanding my gender back! I don’t think I really have style; I think I just have personality.
Do you find that you follow fashion trends, or do you play by your own rules?
I am highly influenced by fashion trends yes, but I def. play by my own rules. It’s all a cycle anyways. If your not doing it now you’ll most likely do it later!
Items to get, what are you searching for right now?
- I’m obsessed with velvet right now! Velvet anything
- leather anything
- & of course anything that you can throw on your head!
Are there any colors you tend to shy away from, and if so why?
I shy away from browns, that’s mainly it! Just because it does nothing for me being as though I’m a chocolate girl.
When you hear the term “Black Girl Killing It” what comes to mind?
Immediately I think of Jada P. Smith, Queen Latifah etc. in the movie set it off!! Bad, Black & Beautiful!
As a child were you always into clothes or did you grow into your own fashion sense?
As a child I actually wasn’t really into clothes. I can say I have always been well dressed/groomed but I have always been a tom-boy sorta so if I had a nice pair of sneakers on I was happy! My older brother and sister influenced me a lot because they’ve always been really into fashion & fads.
Do you participate in your local fashion scene?
Sadly not, being as though I attend school in a small part of Alabama & that is where I spend most of my time. Fashion isn’t big there & if you ask me everyone is a tad bit late on things. I appreciate the culture though. I attend/participate in fashion shows etc. but of course I represent myself.
How does your day to day life factor into your wardrobe choices?
My day to day life plays a big role into my wardrobe choices. Its a little hectic. I play sports so you can catch me in alot of athletic wear during my spare time. I don’t have to be at an event to dress up on a normal day and I’m not opposed to dressing casually to something fancy! During the night you can find me in my street walker apparel.
What is your greatest fashion pet peeve?
My greatest fashion pet peeve is being too matchy!!!!
Have you ever tried your hand at design or sewing?
Yes!!! I have tried sewing pieces together because I have countless designs in my head of thing I would love to put together, but it never turns out the way I envisioned. On another note I make alot of jewelry so I guess that makes up for it all! Lol
Are there any designers that you like to wear or whose clothing stands out with you?
I love Chanel anything! But I’m am not big on designers, though I wear alot of it. This is for the simple fact that I hate to wear the same thing twice unless it’s logo less. I dont mind spending pretty pennies on basic YSL logo tees or cute vintage Fendi handbags.
Who are your style icons?
- Solange Knowles
- Lady GaGa
- Chloe Sevigny
- All the girls from Sex In The City
- Olsen Twins
- & countless people who are not celebs!
Your five must-haves as a girl:
- Nude lipstick
- A pair of earth toned platforms
- An everyday pair of high waisted denims (skinny preferably)
- Any designer handbag
- An ATTITUDE!
