~Too Cool For School~ Oroma Elewa


Nigerian born, Oroma Elewa is the editor and creative director of Pop'Africana Magazine. The magazine is an extremely innovative perspective on art, fashion and style. There has been an international anticipation and buzz that has been bubbling for over a year now about the mag and has even been described as the African VOGUE. Oroma started the magazine herself with no external funding which i think is truly commendable and applaud worthy. 

However, this post is not entirely about the her magazine, as fabulous as it is, its about the girl herself. Her style to me is so chic, its sinful. Her individuality is reflected in every single thing she wears. She's not afraid to look silly, taking risks with shades of lipstick I could never have the balls to rock but somehow, she always gets it right. There's something authentically fabulous that she has going on, that made me inclined to do this post about her and share her distinct dress sense with y'all. Check out her blog ~http://popafricana.com & be sure to pick up the FIRST edition of Pop'Africana which she describes in three words as ~ 'bold, inspiring, and distinct'. Loves her.
