Why start a blog? You may ask. Yeah! I know. Too many bloggers on the internet. Why not? If you meet me in person the question you will ask is why didn’t I start a blog earlier than now. I have a bachelors in Chemical Engineering and a masters in Project Management. Unless I tell people these, everyone just assume I have a degree in something fashion related.
Over the years, my personal style has been greatly influenced by paying close attention to the fashion and beauty industry. As a tween and then a teenager in a Nigerian boarding school, I hardly followed the school’s uniform rules. I dressed with flair just to be a little different. When asked to add a button I opted for a hook and eye. Zipper on the back, mine was on the side. The most interesting piece I had and fancied was the thin extra-long belt I wore over my above-the- knee, no-pleats form fitted brown/light brown instead of brown/white gingham housewear. My style was a cry away from the suggested four panel pleats, full skirt skirt or dress the school recommended. Rather than tie the belt to the back, mine was tied to the front and a good four inches past the hemlines. Those were the beginning of my journey into the world of fashion until I introduced myself to my very first copy of a Vogue Magazine I saw on the shelf of CVS Pharmacy. Flipping through the glossy pages of Instyle, Vogue, Elle, Bazaar, Essence, Lucky, and W Magazines, my fashion sense has improved a great deal. I also noticed a lot of people are not privy to the information that I have acquired so far mostly because of lack of interest in reading fashion materials. Hence, the birth of So Modishly Chic (SMC).
