Ijeoma Balogun

If you are interested in appearing on My Style, simply send two pictures of yourself or that of a friend depicting a typical Day and Night Look with a short summary of your style to my email box: [email protected]. When your entry is approved, you will be required to send in more pictures and personal commentaries on your style or that of your friend as the case may be! Thanks to everyone who has participated so far, keep the emails coming. Let’s remember that this feature is about appreciating an individual’s expression through clothing!

Cameroonian BN reader and fashion lover, Elizabeth Liga’s style is eclectic, random and fun! She dresses up to feel good and is a self-proclaimed natural look and lipstick lover!

Elizabeth’s Style:
I will describe my style as afrocentric, chic, vintage, out of the box, comfortable. My style is very fun, calm and attractive. My closet is full of every piece of clothing ever created in this world. It could be your new favorite store in the future which is going to be called “By His Grace”. I dress according to how I feel for that particular day. I could be a tom-boy today, a sexy hot lady the next day, a nerd the day after, a natural afrocentric beauty another day. I’m not limited I’m full of everything you could ever think of. Ask me and I will make it happen because I love challenges. My Inspiration comes to me according to the weather and whenever I’m bored or how I feel that day. You can look at me one day and know my mood and that’s how I feel style is all about. My style doesn’t really have that much description but is just fun and interesting and always has more to come. I show most of it on my tumblr:

Why I Love My Style:
Omg! There are too many reasons to why I love my style. My style is fun, exciting, speaks out my mind whenever it has too. It is art and dope. It makes me happy, it understands, and backs me up each time I ask for its help lol…I know it sounds crazy but that’s exactly the love my fashion and I share.

How It Expresses My Personality:
My personality is not ordinary. My thoughts are not straight forward. My stuff is always out of the norm. I always try to express to myself and get my point across. So my fashion helps me with that because I get to express myself like I said earlier my style speaks for me. I am always bubbly and always ready to go. I can’t stay somewhere for up to an hour is kind of bad but that’s just me. My style comes out very naturally without having to try hard. That’s why my hair plays a very big role in my style my hair is natural and always on the go. I cannot have one hairstyle and be quiet I have to keep changing it every five seconds. My style is just so freaking Dope 😉 ha-ha too confident.

Style Philosophy:
I just personally feel that anyone style should be a way of expressing themselves and should be accepted just the way they are.

Favorite Clothing Stores:
Thrift Stores, vintage stores, I don’t really have one but whatever I see that’s what I get!

I can’t make up my mind when it comes with hair. I wake up every morning having a new idea of what I want. I have had seven different haircuts excluding the braids and all that. My hair is something that bores me very easily and I’m still trying to work on it.

I m not really a make up person like that but I cant do without my lipsticks and bronzer. Day look always consists of pink lipstick. Night look the same what only changes is my outfits

Wardrobe Staples:

Scarves, jewelry, anything with prints, lipstick, shades. I don’t like wearing jeans. All I have is dressy pants and dresses but I can wear denim short which is pretty weird but whatever pleases me right?

Shoe Collection:

Day Look:

    Hmmm, Elizabeth, you need to learn to dress to suit your body type. You absolutely didnt look good in any of the photos, sorry.Again, if you have short legs stay away from shoe-booties or ankle straps, they’d make your legs even shorter. And, please stay away from harem pants or any baggy pants for that matter.

      True..You should take her advice

      June 8, 2011 at 2:29 pm

      and who decided on those rules? Not every one is a slave to fashion. Style is dynamic so open the box, free your self and you will be alright!

    • Kémi Penélopê

      June 9, 2011 at 12:21 pm

      I so agree with U, NnaBaby…
      she has defined her own style, she does not have to conform to what others have defined as the standard style. Who’s truly the judge of fashion? Who truly is? Just think about it…

    • bizzzzzzzz

      June 12, 2011 at 5:03 pm

      you are right, but if u dont know what will look good on you, you look rilli like the slave.

    When one is confident and loves themselves it shows and thats a good thing.
    You owned your style girl will not go for some of the looks and some are simply awesome but again you owned it all. Thumps up!

    i hope all the natural ladies are finally satisfied.

    • spidedonem

      June 8, 2011 at 4:39 pm

      What satisfaction is this supposed to bring to me as a natural exactly? In any case Zara who did her style ages ago was natural, Bella’s sis is natural.

      And I hope the “artificial” ladies will learn a thing or two. You aren’t Brazilian/Indian.

    Um…it’s not about looks. it’s about showcasing one’s personal fashion style. Simples!

  11. Ginika

    June 8, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    interesting… Artistic….Individualistic/unique/eccentric…

    love the natural hair *high five to that*…if it works for you, it works for you. Love your confidence too.

    @swarovski, I think you dropped your matchbox?! Oh wait; its your mind… dont be too narrow minded.

  12. Aibee

    June 8, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    HMMM? *Confused look* All I know is this style is quirky. Not vintage nor chic. Ecclectic definitely. She’s got a great smile though.

    (Now BN Moderator will go to work on my comment!,lol)

  13. Sassy

    June 8, 2011 at 12:49 pm

    looks like she is stuck in the 80’s, plastic earrings, harem pants, sleeves jeans jacket . . . oh my! Admire her need for individuality though, more than i can say for my tyra-banks wannabe style 😀

  14. chi chi

    June 8, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    i liked the turban/black fitted jacket/Adire pants (wud have liked the pants a lil’ bit more fitted though). its obvious that she likes fashion, even if she didn’t always get it right. interesting.

    June 8, 2011 at 3:03 pm

    I never thot id comment on a My style post because to each his own rite? But? Really? All I see is exaggerated poses and a lot of questionable looks for her body type.

    I love some pieces and outfits but I think she needs to edit more closely.

      ‘ amazing style that eludes African beauty’? Nne…I had to highlight the misuse of oyinbo, I just had to.
      On Elizabeth, the chick did warn us in her intro :)…I loove that she’s rocking natural hair, and most of her choices looked great on her. She’s all over the map, and I love that. Sometimes you wake up in the morning & you just wanna look very different from what you normally dress like. Do you, chica!

  23. Zara

    June 8, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    Her hair is gorgeous! I’m not really feeling her style but then again I’m not her, she’s obviously feeling it and that’s what matters.

    • Ib

      My thoughts exactly…love just the hair…

    Its great to see people who don’t conform to normal societal standards in dress-code and choose to follow their heart and style. Fashion is an outlet through which each individual can express his/her own uniqueness, therefore, I appreciate your style 🙂

    June 8, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    love her style, she is confident of her self.

  27. Uju G

    June 8, 2011 at 5:32 pm

    Hahaha … not my kind of thing but i have to admit – … She has a very unique fashion sense/style and she rocks it with confidence … it works for her right? so that’s all that matters! 🙂

    Yay, My Style!!!! Thanks BN.

    Kudos to Ms. Liga. Your style IS different, as everyone has pointed out. But your confidence radiates from within you, and anyone (even the haters) can see that you are comfortable with yourself. I, personally, wouldn’t wear half of your outfits (simple and classic, am I) but g’head wit yo bad self!

  37. Nonye

    June 9, 2011 at 10:10 am

    I agree with some of the comments here, she does have her personal style and she’s rocking it her way….even if some of us aren’t exactly feeling it…this is about her not YOU and I!


    June 9, 2011 at 10:49 am

    To each his own i guess…not feeling majority of her looks, but some of her fashion choices were nice. It’s good to be bold enough to beat to your own drum in fashion though and stop following trends like some sheep so for that i applaud her

  39. nonny

    June 9, 2011 at 11:30 am

    i love to see people love their style and feel good in their clothes n shoes!! thumbs up girl!! its not easy 2 b that bold n confident..alot of ladies hvve lost their style n self confidence because they r imitating imagined celebrities and so called fashion trends…Learn to creat your style ladies and be proud of it..Be bold n confident too and U’ll always sTaNd OuTTT!!!

  44. Lady Mass

    June 10, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Her hair is fine..But the clothes she put most of them are 80s fashion and she too young and beautiful to get herself into that …she shall pass it for a lady over 35yrs…

  45. 9jaFoodie

    June 11, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    Obviously she is not a conformist, she defines her own style. I admire her for that.

    Elizabeth, you rock! Love your style.. Its obvious you do and wear whatever makes you happy and that’s all you need to worry about. People nowadays, especially Nigerian girls, dress to impress and compete with other people… They’re also the ones that are so quick to judge folks on what they have on.. You’re unique, love your willingness to try new things… Never stop shinning~ PS – You have nice legs and you’ll fit in right in L.A
