She loves maxi dresses and she’s decided to bring out a line of them, read more about our latest BGKI Sai Sankoh…
How would you define your personal style?
Confident, Fun and definitely sexy!!!
Do you find that you follow fashion trends, or do you play by your own rules?
I love some trends, but that does not mean I necessarily follow them.
For example,I’ve had clothing and shoes in my closet for 3 years, and then in one day I’ll just find the perfect piece and decide to wear it. Personally though, I think it is a lot wiser to get classic pieces and integrate them with a few trendy pieces.
Items to get, what are you searching for right now?
- I am in love with the Christian Louboutin Lady Daf, but they are sold out everywhere. ( I think I get depressed, just even talking about it, so please lets not ) [:)]
- I am also on the prowl for the perfect black bag. I have some I love, but none that I am in love with.
Are there any colors you tend to shy away from, and if so why?
I am not crazy about dark browns. It just does not “pop” or do anything for my style.
When you hear the term “Black Girl Killing It” what comes to mind?
A fabulous woman of color that isn’t afraid to take chances.
As a child were you always into clothes or did you grow into your own fashion sense?
Oh, I was a total tomboy. Really, I used to climb trees and play soccer in the rain. Haha, I think it was my senior year in high school that I really got into clothes, and for me, fashion is about learning and inspiration, so everyday, I think my style is evolving.
Do you participate in your local fashion scene?
I love the fashion scene around DC especially the CapFabb events. OMG I joined a few months ago, and its over 400 fashion and beauty bloggers now, and they are the coolest people ever. I just love being around them, and I think we have formed this really close sisterhood. I travel a lot, but whenever I am in town, I jump at the opportunity to see them. xoxo Ladies.
How does your day to day life factor into your wardrobe choices?
Oh I work primarily from home now, so I dress up every time I get a chance to head out. Even if its going to the grocery store, I will put on a pair of fabulous shoes, and sunglasses just because!
What is your greatest fashion pet peeve?
Hmmm, I am not sure, but I don’t think its sexy seeing a woman that can’t walk in heels. I know some shoes are NOT supposed to be comfortable, but i you cant, don’t. Its just not cool. I hope I don’t sound mean.
Have you ever tried your hand at design or sewing?
Yes, Actually I love to design. I am not so great at sewing, but I am working on a line of maxi dresses. You can check out my obsession with maxi dresses at www.becauseiamfabulous.com
Are there any designers that you like to wear or whose clothing stands out with you?
I love Oscar de la Renta dresses. I am not a very curvy lady, but there is something about his dresses, that just does wonders for me. For casual maxi dresses, I absolutely adore BCBG Max Azria. They are affordable and so fun and sexy
Who are your style icons?
I love Anna Dello Russo, she is very brave when it comes to fashion. I love the elegance and sophistication of Victoria Beckham.
Your four must-haves as a girl:
- a classic pair of Christian Louboutin Pigalle Point- Toe Pumps. There is so much class in that little red sole, and the way they are designed, its the perfect heels and just so sexy on a woman.
- a great pair of jeans to accentuate your butt!
- of course a classic LBD, every woman must have that.
- a great smile and finally the confidence to carry your fabulous self!!
