Ladies and gentlemen, I had the honour of interviewing the beautiful stylist Màriama khadija from Ottawa
As a fashion blogger , tell me what trends you fancy the most and why ???
Well as a blogger or a person who just loves fashion in general, I truly fancy and appreciate prints, the lbd, blazers, the maxi . Oh I love bold colors, the over-sized sweaters and my guilty pleasure, leggings. I know leggings have been an over-kill lately, but you can dress it up or down and the are so comfortable. Also, most of the trends listed above are pieces a lot of people have in their closets.
From all the people you’ve styled on your blog , which did you have the most fun styling and why ? Also which did you find more tasking , if any .
I actually really enjoyed doing the Coachella inspired portion of my blog which was like my first entry and it was so exciting!
Also I loved creating this chic “white-out” date night look for my friend Flavia.
In your own words , define ” Style”
I believe style is something you evolve with, something that grows with you and alters to your life. Therefore, to me style is something that helps define who you are , expresses who you are and where you are in your life, because I think as you hit certain stages, your style changes to fit you or your new state of being. think about your style 2 years ago and your style now, or think of where and who you were two years ago and who and where you are now.
What will you say your type of style is ?
To be honest I do not have a “set style type”. . I am a free spirit who has many sides and I like to express every side. One day I want to express my preppy side, one day I like to express my chic and sexy side or other days I just like big thrifted sweaters and leggings which I like To call my “my bummy and playful side”
Here I’m wearing a shirt from winners , the shoes was a gift from my mum and leather pants were from Zara
What celebrity’s dress sense do you fancy and why ?
I do fancy Rihanna and Nicole Richie. They are both so edgy and fearless and they always express different sides. I guess the word I am looking for is “versatile”. They are very versatile and I love versatility.
If you were to work alongside any designer of you choice , who will it be and why ?
Omg Dion Lee!! He is just amazing Like he is an Australian based design, and I was watching fashion television one day and he was on . His clothes are so sexy and chic but he adds a sporty and edginess to most of his pieces. Like how does he do it?! He’s a brilliant and young designer and I have a little crush on him too.
Do you have any big plans for your blog in the future ?
Honestly I haven’t posted anything up in a while because I am trying to go in a new direction and expand. I don’t just want it to be just a “fashion blog” I want it to be a lifestyle blog, so health fitness skin care and so on because these are things I have focused on this summer and I like the changes that I have made. So I want to help others do the same and find things that will work for them.
And to wrap up this interview , tell me what your favourite saying is
I absolutely love this saying by Karl Lagerfeld; “Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans – it’s up to you.” I also like “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” ~ Coco Chanel
There you have it guys !!!
