Style Icon: AbenaLove

When it comes to style icons we tend to look to celebrities who granted bring that fashion on the regular but what about women just like us? Women without personal stylists, who do the 9 to 5 and still bring it. So with that in mind, I've decided to dedicate a few posts to fabulous women who I think have great personal style.

Tell me a little about yourself: I'm a primary music teacher by profession but I have developed a love and passion for fashion, beauty and hair.

Describe your style in 3 words: Simple, Sophisticated, Chic

Fashion Loves: I love monochrome (you can never go wrong with a black and white ensemble), Ankara prints (I love how they are being incorporated into today's fashion in a way that is very modern and chic), Structured pieces that create an amazing silhouette; and bold colours because they look amazing on our beautiful complexions!

Fashion Loathes: When people wear clothes that are too tight or dress inappropriately for their body size and shape (everything is not for everyone); Less is more (not a fan of outfits that look too busy...be it with a ton of accessories that don't compliment the outfit, or too many prints going on at once...some people need to learn to edit their looks); Outfits that show off too much and leave nothing to the imagination.

If you could have one item in your wardrobe right now, what would it be: Only one?? That's impossible!! LOL. But probably a pair of patent black Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120 (as uncomfortable as they look); an oversized Chanel jumbo bag; AND a large Hermes Birkin bag (Yup! Any of those would do! lol).
