Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?
SM: From a young age I loved to wear nice things and this was heavily influenced by my mum and dad, who took a lot of pride in how they dressed me. My aunties are seamstresses and they would make dresses for myself and my sister. I think it was at the age of 15 when I really started to formulate my own style.
Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE?
SM: I love many different looks but my overall goal is to always look classy.
Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?
SM: I don’t think I have one to be honest. I love Louboutins though.
Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush?
SM : Without a second thought the blogger Kyrzayda, I love every one of her looks and the way she empowers women. She is fabulous!
Question 5: How do you pick the ensembles you display?
SM: I love statement pieces and I also think that sometimes ‘less is more’. I try to keep this in mind when putting my looks together. Of course when I’m not sure, I have a good look on Pinterest too.
Question 6 : What are some of your favorite boutiques to get your fashionable pieces?
SM: I love topshop and Zara.
