Read what items Damilola are searching for right now as she kills it daily…
What inspires you to blog?
Everyday life. People. Things. Places.
How would you define your personal style?
One word, bipolar. It changes from day to day. I honestly really couldn’t describe it in on word even if I tried.
Do you find that you follow fashion trends, or do you play by your own rules?
Rules? What does that even mean. I am a strong believer that in Fashion, there should be no rules. It is all about taking risks but there should obviously be a limit.
Items to get, what are you searching for right now?
- Black Sheer Maxi
- Pastel Blazer
- Spiked Leather Biker Jacket
Are there any colors you tend to shy away from, and if so why?
I used to wear all the colours of the rainbow but now I find myself wearing black most of the time & I am yet to understand why. Guess I am a New Yorker at heart.
Other times, I find that I am forced to wear black because of my extremely bright hair colour. A lady needs to avoid looking like bobo the clown.
When you hear the term “Black Girl Killing It” what comes to mind?
The title speaks for itself. Black girls who are killing it in the fashion scene.
As a child were you always into clothes or did you grow into your own fashion sense?
I’ve always been very artistic & yes, Fashion has always been a big part of my life. I think it stemmed from my obsession with Art.
Do you participate in your local fashion scene?
Too bad I live away from the City but I currently work for AmiteeUK as the Fashion Editor, guess this answers the question?
How does your day to day life factor into your wardrobe choices?
I run around a lot and so I find that I have more flat shoes than heels which can be a disadvantage at times.
What is your greatest fashion pet peeve?
Not being original.
Have you ever tried your hand at design or sewing?
Of course. I sew bits and pieces from time to time.
Are there any designers that you like to wear or whose clothing stands out with you?
Alexander Wang, Burberry.
Who are your style icons?
If I had to choose, it would have to be Mary Kate & Ashley – I’d totally raid their wardrobe without thinking twice- Olivia Palermo & Sarah Jessica Parker. They ooze elegance but still keep it relaxed and fun.
