She's Got Style! : Osahon Iyamu

Hi Everyone! 

This is the third installment in my 'She's Got Style!' feature. I was on Instagram far too early one morning when I stumbled on Osahon's page and was blown away by her style and her profile, which began with 'Child of God'. I liked all her photos and was surprised to know that she doesn't have a fashion blog, I later went on to beg her to launch one! 

Osahon Iyamu was born and raised in Nigeria and has been in New York for the past 10 years. She finished up her High School in New York and later achieved a Bachelors of Health Science from Stony Brook University.

How would you describe your personal style?

 I would describe my style as classic chic.

Who are some of your style icons:
One person I admire is Kerry Washington,  I really like her style because it's so effortless and chic.  I also admire June Ambrose for being a trend setter and Solang√© Knowles for being such a risk taker.

When did you realize you had a passion for fashion?

I can't really remember when but I know I have always loved to dress up. I modeled for a few years so I guess I can say that influenced my passion for fashion.

What is the one trend you wish would die or be over?

I really don't like the Doc Martens shoes. I think people should really stop wearing them.

What is your favorite accessory?

My ultimate favorite accessory is a well made and quality handbag. My favorite makeup line is Mac, I absolutely love their lipsticks.

 Well, what do you guys think? I love her signature chic look, it is so ladylike and timeless. You can browse her growing Instagram page by clicking here, her handle is fittingly @princess_osahon,she has a lot more photos so be sure to follow her for instant photos.
