You guys seemed to be on the fence about yesterday’s representation of the DMV! Hopefully you’ll be more convinced with Aghogho from Maryland’s style:
The blogger for Zeldanfestus.blogspot.com types, “I’m Nigerian – American from Maryland (the DMV) currently residing across the pound in Edinburgh, Scotland.”
“I have an avid love for vintage, flats and accessories, which I acquired whilst studying at Howard University.”
“I normally mix designer, high-street and vintage in my daily ensembles; trying to wear at least one statement accessory to pull my entire look together. For example, here I’m wearing: vintage + modern jewellery, a Fendi bag, Carven Flats and a Topshop Dress.”
“I’ve lived in London, West Yorkshire, and Edinburgh whilst in the UK, and for the most part my surroundings have slightly influenced my style.”
“I try as much as possible to dress for my shape + height (I’m 5’11’). My weight has fluctuated through the years and I know that all trends do not suit my shape or taste.”
“Of course being Nigerian, I have an affinity to prints every now and again.”
“In regards to fashion, I tend to ‘ball’ on a budget. I have a seasonal list and try to stick to a certain amount each year on shopping. I try as much as possible, to never pay full price for designers…unless of course I have to. I scored these YSL PomPom heels for a mere £70.00, I blog about how to find sale items from time to time.”
“I believe in quality over quantity.”
” I tend to save for big items and guard against impulse buys. I’ve lost lots of money doing that and know the importance now of money management. Thus, I tend to repeat pieces a lot.”
“As I get older, I’m less concerned with trends and seek to buy timeless pieces that will stand the test of time and by God’s grace and be passed onto my future daughter. Now, if only I’d win the lottery so I could step up my bag game! *smile*”
Hot! Classic, timeless, chic, polished…you’ve got it going on!
