There is nothing more beautiful than discovering fashion trends that are not only relatable but also super affordable and basically, stress-free!
This probably explains why under a span of three years, Fikky Pearl has been able to grow an impressive following of 28,000 followers on Instagram.
But, the Abuja-based fashion blogger isn't just any regular content creator in love with big brands and well, unrealistic fashion standards.
Fikky Pearl is more like the girl next door but with the perfect blend of creativity and panache - all of which make her content fun and interesting to follow.
In an interview with Legit.ng, she spoke about why she started blogging:
"I started blogging because I’m creative with a passion for fashion and wanted to let people know you don’t need to follow trends to look stylish! Blogging is the major way I can show those who can’t afford high end fashion trends how to look confident, stylish without breaking the bank."
Many Nigerian fashion bloggers are not big on repeating looks for the 'gram, but going against this is what makes Fikky stand out from the rest.
Not only does she repeat looks, but she also teaches her followers impressive style hacks as regards how to rock these looks differently.
Another thing that makes her blog interesting has got to be the jaw-dropping Do-It-Yourself (DIYs) transformations she does with her clothes.
On how she comes up with these hacks, she said:
"I get inspired in so many ways when it comes to fashion hacks. Sometimes It just takes me looking at one outfit and thinking how an ordinary person can pull this off and I start experimenting. Sometimes I get it wrong and try again. I get inspiration too from problems women face in fashion. Like they say if there’s no problem there wouldn’t be a solution. So for me fashion hacks is creating a solution for problems in fashion."
