Today’s GoStylista of the moment is a girl that inspires us all with her outfits. Nife, more known as “Skinny Hipster” from her successful blog took a few moments of her day to tell us more about herself and her fashion. Check out the interview!
GoStylista :Tell us a little bit about yourself and your fashion blog.
Skinny Hipster: Hi! My name is Nifesimi and I was born in Nigeria. I’m currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in marketing. I started gearing my blog towards fashion in August 2008. I share my personal style and fashion inspiration on my blog. I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends…and I LOVE to eat (lol).
GoStylista: Where do you find inspiration for your beautiful personal style?
Skinny Hipster: I find inspiration from my African roots. The textiles and colors are most inspiring.
GoStylista: How would you describe your style?
Skinny Hipster: My style is edgy but always evolving. I enjoy playing with bold prints, textures and colors.
Skinny Hipster: I’m obsessed with people with authentic styles such as Jenna Lyons, Christine Centenera, and Taylor Tomasi Hill.
GoStylista: We all love shopping…is there something in particular you splurge on?
Skinny Hipster: I mostly shop at H&M, BCBG, Zara, Ann Taylor Loft, sometimes Forever21, Madewell, JCrew and ASOS.
GoStylista: According to you, what are this coming spring’s must-haves?
Skinny Hipster: We are going to be seeing loads of sheer fabrics such as chiffon, black and white color combinations, suits and Asian inspired prints.
GoStylista: Today you have a successful blog, what are your plans for the future? Where do you see yourself in 3 years?
Skinny Hipster: I am currently focusing on building the Skinny Hipster brand into more than just a blog. I am diligently exploring new ways to allow Skinny Hipster to serve as a platform for my other creative and professional interests. In three years, I hope to be a full-time fashion stylist. Even beyond fashion styling, I plan to open a clothing boutique.
GoStylista: Finally, do you have any advice for readers that might want to take a leap and start their own blog?
Skinny Hipster: Having a blog takes a lot of dedication and is very time consuming but it’s also very fun. It’s a great way to meet/ interact with people that share similar interests with you; and if you work hard towards it, you will get great results.
