INTERVIEW WITH IRONY OF ASHI, MAKE SURE YOU GUYS CHECK HER OUT!!!!!

1.      Please introduce yourself and state what part of Africa you are from?

·        My name is Agatha, I am a college student, personal/fashion blogger, from Delta state (Delta Igbo) in Nigeria but I currently reside in the U.S.

 

2. Where/what/who is your greatest source of inspiration? 

·        I get a lot of inspirations everywhere but I would have to give it to the internet, through it, I have met amazing people and gotten enlightened about different cultures.

 

3. What is your favorite pair of shoes? 

·        Pumps, I am 5’10 but I don’t shy away from heels, they add more tone to my legs and make me have my “red carpet moment” and flats will always be a necessity.


4. What one item could you not live without? 

·        “puff puff” lol just kidding it’s a Nigerian snack and I like it too much, right now it’s the only thing that comes to mind in regards to the question.

 

5. When you are travelling on a plane, what is your favorite thing to wear? 

·        I like comfort and sleeping on planes so I will go with a simple dress with flats/heels or a nice fitted blazer with skinny jeans and tank

6. Favorite beauty products? 

·        I am a “old shoe” type of person when it comes to beauty products due to sensitive skin, I stick to the ones I’ve been using but I’m currently loving my cover girl lipsticks and milani baked blush


7. Favorite celebrity style? 

·        Gwen Stefani, there’s something about  her looks that always captivate me; she has that old Hollywood glam with rocker chic mix and I also adore Solange’s style; ever since I watched her video “sandcastle disco” I knew she had that va va voom.


8. Any fashion tips for our followers?

·        Always invest in key essentials for wardrobes e.g blazers, LBD (little black dresses), tanks, fitted denim etc and accessories; accessories help me all the time. Take breaks from regular stores and go thrift store shopping and explore vintage pieces. Lastly, Buy a SEWING MACHINE you don’t have to know how to sew, you can always learn but you will never regret buying one.


9. Favorite outfit you’ve ever worn? 

·        The outfits I make (I have to give myself credit lol)


10. If you could give someone advice on creating their own personal style, what would it be? 

·        “Fake it till you make it” let your personality show through your style, try not to copy others but let them inspire you. Don’t be scared to explore colors, it makes people happy and me happy.
