From time to time, I’m going to be putting people on here. People whose styles should be noticed and all that.
Hoarding my Polkadot Light this time is a friend of mine: Ijenna Mirabel Osuji. Most people call her IJ, but, I prefer to call her name in full; I think it’s beautiful.
Ijenna is a nineteen year old 100L Physiotherapy student of the University of Lagos. She’s also a fashion blogger and photographer. The first time I noticed Ijenna was during our student registration. She had a boy cut a la Frankie (The Saturdays) and she had this IDFWU air about her. She dressed different from everyone else and she didn’t exactly talk to a lot of people. Most persons would say she’s a snob, but, somehow I knew she wasn’t a snob. She came off to me as one of those people you needed courage to talk to; those people who make the saying “first impressions matter” as real as Heaven and Hell, yet, she’s not hard to talk to.
Ijenna is a fashion blogger in a way that doesn’t suffocate you or make you want to ask her “who the hell made you an authority on anything?”. She runs Mira La Belle . Ijenna doesn’t think she should be called a photographer because she’s not making money from that yet, but, I’ll let you decide that. Ijenna also likes to write. Another reason I love her blog so much. She blogs about fashion, but, she also puts bits and pieces of herself out there for her audience, be it a write up or a drawing or a simple photo. Ijenna is a very talented and passionate young woman and one of her future projects is styling. Some people may describe her as cynical or harsh, but, in my opinion, she’s just a realistic person who has set goals for herself with every intention of achieving them; it’s no crime that she expects the same from everybody else. She may not know it, but, in a way, she pushes those around her to “just do it” and sometimes she consciously helps. I love this chic and you should too. To see Ijenna’s opinion on Fashion and other things, head over to Mira La Belle , you can follow her on Instagram @unservile_fashionist and like her page on Facebook: Mira La Belle
I’m leaving this really cute picture of her (she doesn’t think so sha…) to end this post
