Listerine - because stinky breath is never in style. (they should totally make that their official slogan)
What is your current favourite fashion trend?
I love neon! And so excited that peplums are making a come back!
Why did you start your blog?
I started The Fresh Factor because a friend suggested I start a style blog a few times. After I got into it I loved it and realized it was an awesome way to connect people and to give back! I connect other style lovers with volunteer opportunities and it's been great thus far!
Who takes your photos for you/ How do your take your photos?
I have two photographers. One is my mother, who is nice enough to let me stop by her house and take pictures for me. She also usually feeds me on those days - it's a good deal ya'll! The second is a really good friend of mine who is an awesome photographer. You can see his photography quite a bit on my blog and at K.Diarra Photography
How would you describe your style?
Urban with a vintage edge? I only say that because someone else said it to me - so, really, I'm just stealing other people's answers right now. I feel it varies depending on my mood...I really have no clue what to call it, so I'll stick with the answer I stole.
What is one thing you are dying to buy this winter?
A really great new coat and the perfect pair of cognac boots.
Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?
I'm a die-hard shoe girl with asperations to be a bag girl. But thus far if I have a choice between the two, shoes win every time.
What is one thing you regret buying?
I don't think I have anything I regret buying. Usually if I buy something and don't feel the same way about it after a while, I will sell it at a consignment store or give it away so someone else can enjoy it.
If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
Rachel Roy without a doubt. I love her as a designer and I respect her so much as a business woman. I'd love to hang out with her for a day!
What is your favourite vacation destination?
I don't know that I have a favorite yet. I have visited South Africa, it's a beautiful place and I'd love to go back.
What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?
