My Style: Louisa Moje

My Style Louisa Moje - BellaNaija - April2014016“Fashion is what you make it” – Louisa Moje

It’s time for another fabulous edition of My Style – our monthly BN Style feature that aims to celebrate the unique style of our amazing BN readers.

The My Style page is all about showing how diverse and universal style can be. Style is individual, unique and fun and is a personal representation of how each person expresses their take on fashion; so BN Style watchers let’s appreciate her unique style 🙂 Enjoy.

BellaNaija reader Louisa Moje is our My Style focus for this edition and we are loving her eccentric and free spirit. This Nigerian born fashion lover is the last of 7 girls and 3 boys; and with all those females in the family she knew it would be hard for her not to love fashion.

Louisa is currently in school studying Pharmacy; and dressing up, shopping, travelling and blogging came quickly to her as a way to cope with her studies – with her style blog – La passion Voutee. Keep scrolling to find out more about Louisa and her amazing style.

My Style is…
simple, elegant, chic, affordable and dynamic. It intrigues me to see the intricate amount of details that designers put together to create a piece. You know the popular saying, “one man’s poison is another man’s meat”? That’s the best way I can describe my love for style because an outfit can look terrific on one person and look hideous on another person. I love style because it allows you to figure out what works best for you.

Where Style Meets Personality
Style to me is a form of expression. It is a way for me to portray not just my sense of style but my thoughts and feelings at any point in time. I’m a calm, cheerful and very giggly personality. Based on how I feel, I choose to either blend in with the crowd or stand out.

Where I Shop Till I Drop
I shop at a variety of places from ASOS, Boohoo, Topshop, Urban Outfitters, Zara, Forever21, Lulu*s, DSW, Nordstrom to smaller stores like Moddeals and thrift stores for more bargain choices. I believe a girl can look like a million bucks if she’s got the confidence to pull off whatever she puts on. I am a huge online shopper because in the cowboy town where I reside, there are no malls.

My twin sister is a financial advisor and she deliberately placed me on a budget so my shopping doesn’t spiral out of control and because of this, I buy most of my clothes when they go on sale.

My Tresses
I love easy to maintain hairdo and so I gravitate towards straight or wavy hair and once in a while, I get my hair braided.

My Makeup Look
My routine is very easy and takes me less than 7 minutes. I use a powder, eyeliner, mascara and a lip gloss/neutral lipstick. I mostly don’t wear foundation as I tend to break out easily.

How I Accessorize
I tend to go light on accessories and usually wear one or two statement pieces at a time.

I Think Every Girl Should Have
My wardrobe staples include midi skirts and wiggle dresses with a hint of color. But I think every girl should have a classic pair of neutral pumps, a midi-length dress and a beautiful purse.

My Advice for Other Stylistas
Do not dress to please anyone. Find what works great for your body and embrace it.

If I Could Steal A Celebrity’s Wardrobe
If I could have anyone’s closet right now, it would probably be Lupita’s wardrobe. I just love her simple yet elegant style.

Which Celebrity Stole My Look
Tiwa Savage! I may not remotely look like her but I appreciate her sense of style – minimal and gorgeous just like mine.

My Style Philosophy
Fashion is what you make it; your personal style or just another trend.

      Not my favorite. Too many things going on. If it is not the hair, it is the necklace, or the details of the jacket, or the details of the pants, or the bright shoes and bags, or the glasses, something. Too much. Perhaps I’m a minimalist. But overall, she has a distinct style that is all HERS.

    April 7, 2014 at 12:17 pm

    Maybe because the pieces dont seem very current or maybe because most of the outfits have too much going on with the odd belt and socks I cant quite put my finger on it, but like Vics said its HER STYLE and this is a democratic state x

    For all I know one doesnt have to dress like Nkiru Anumudu to be termed fashionable! This girl to me is a good dresser, may not be your fashion queen but she’s definitely stylish.IMO!

    April 7, 2014 at 12:43 pm

    I like her style. Louisa’s sister has a company called House of Karis in Nigeria, she is a young lecturer by day and a fashion designer at the same time. I think it runs in your family..being fashionable and intelligent.

    Her style isn’t exactly what i’d wear but she has VERY INTERESTING shoes.

    She has a Carrie Bradshaw vibe. Cute!

    • some hater

      April 7, 2014 at 4:50 pm

      You got it! i was thinking that would be her style icon. so Carrie Bradshaw.

    • Mariaah

      April 17, 2014 at 2:37 pm

      Yes!! I saw her and remember Carrie with her curly hair, pink tutu and that mini lace sock!!!

      Meanwhile, her style can also be a mish-mash of ugly betty meets carrie bradshaw (in a good way)! She is gorgeous..

    April 7, 2014 at 2:58 pm

    I love that her style is not fresh out of “Forever 21” or whatever high street shop. There is creativity to it, and she mixes and matches, and just does not look like everyone else! Besides the lacy socks and sandal look (hmm, mm, no.always with shoes, or maybe a platform sandal?) I LOVE everything else! Tweed, tutus, satins, midi skirts, heck the old school jeans skirt.. I just love it!!!

  35. nene

    April 7, 2014 at 3:32 pm

    her style is ok. BN i want to see more “based in Nigeria” people submit to “My Style”.

    April 7, 2014 at 3:41 pm

    What is this! Do you call this style or confusion. Girl if you want to wear socks wear it don’t confuse us and yourself. Bella Naija you can do better, i swear if she walks pass me i would laugh out loud.

    • Angel

      April 7, 2014 at 10:52 pm

      That’s why it’s called “my style” so deal with it. Didn’t like most of ’em wears meself but it’s not enough reason to call her out like that, we all can’t be the same, so chill my dear….

    Lovely sense of style dearie. Your shoe collection is amazing, I’m beginning to love midi skirts because of this post, which was a no no for me originally. Thumbs up girl it aint easy to combine professionalism and style blogging. @ haters that’s why it is called my style and not “OUR STYLE”

    Her body is on point. Elegant, slim and porportinate. She has very nice hands and fingernails as well. As for her personal style, it is evolving. There were many winning outfits. She has a body to pull off her unique style.

    She’s very vogue magazine…she shows a lot of imaginative fashion and even when it all looks so wrong it looks so right. Its edgy, dary and artsy. Not every outfit is an everyday wear but I like the way she explores with color, fabric and style.

    She’s definitely looks fab in some photos but I don’t think she’s found her personal style yet. She looks like she’s still experimenting with different elements.

  57. Fabulicious

    April 8, 2014 at 9:47 am

    Bolanle so on point…She has a nice body but these “my” style girls abroad be dressing how there parents will see them in naija and drop prayer request in church.There are so many girls with none of the pieces she has in her entire collection who are classy to the teeth with other stuff.I agree with someone here who said show us naija fashion bloggers based in naija.

    April 8, 2014 at 10:05 am

    Personal style or not; trying way too hard in polyester is unforgivable. To be real I see the vision and what she was trying to go for but unfortunately the execution failed. This is not to say that every fashionista must break the bank or live above their means in order to look good. But a good fashionista knows the importance of quality and class and 75% of the outfit were neither.

    That said; here are the few times she got it right …

    http://static.bellanaija.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/My-Style-Louisa-Moje-BellaNaija-April2014060.jpg

    The rest of the time she looked confused trying to emulate avant garde fashionistas like “Style Is My Thing” and fell very short in her attempts.

    April 8, 2014 at 12:30 pm

    Nice one Louisa… Lovely foot wears and legs to go with i must say. All them haters, What is the standard to ascertain misses and hits when it comes to style?
    Appreciate creativity and learn what you can incorporate into “your style”; if there is any.
    Shikena…

  60. Ready

    April 8, 2014 at 1:56 pm

    Aizeee…calm down. I thought we retired the word hater in 2013.

    Anyhoo, I like a lot of her stuff! Her shoes most especially are cute, and her statement pieces do what they’re supposed to. Her hair serves as a distraction to most of the looks though…an updo or a french braid or bun would have refined much of your outfits. Louisa.
    Overall, lots of great individual pieces, but your pairing is a little basic sometimes and too cluttered sometimes (Check out awedbymonica.blogspot.com/ for better pairing), and have a little more fun with your hair. You’ve got an enviable wardrobe though.

    Like you rightly said “one man’s poison is another man’s meat” if everyone gets your sense of style, then there’s a problem.
    Keep up with this tempo and in a couple of years, we’d see who’d b laughing then….

    I love most of the pieces especially the shoes and def love the midi-skirts. I do agree that some of the outfits seem a bit much; but then I guess there are times you want to dress up and sometimes you want to be minimalist
