Mocha Chocolate beauty Katrina Sakae is our latest BGKI…
What inspires you to blog?
My creative, Tumblr has to be one of the best places to express myself through my music, fashion sense, etc .
How would you define your personal style?
My personal style.. I dont have a specific style , its very influenced by everything i like or see . One day its punk , edgy, girly, preppy, outrageous, it all depends on how I’m feeling when i wake up, haha .
Do you find that you follow fashion trends, or do you play by your own rules?
I definitely play by my rules, I try to keep up with the trends but I dont follow them. It’s nice to know whats in style and whats not in style , but hey fashion is fashion, if its cute to me, in style or out of style I’m wearing it, hah!
Items to get, what are you searching for right now?
I recently got my camo army jacket, so I’m only searching for an acid washed jacket and more high waist shorts or pants .
Are there any colors you tend to shy away from, and if so why?
To tell you the truth, I shy away from bright bright colors but I like to play with my colors and step out of the box sometimes so in the spring I experiment with colors i don’t usually wear.
When you hear the term “Black Girl Killing It” what comes to mind?
When I hear ” Black Girls Killing It ” I mean the name speaks for itself . It’s African American girls stepping over the guidelines of fashions, doing the dares of fashion, showing that US African Americans girls can pull off anything! hah.
Neil’s Note: BGKI is not soley for African American girls but black girls
As a child were you always into clothes or did you grow into your own fashion sense?
It started when i was a child , I dressed myself and wore outfits and other kids would look at me like “what is she wearing?”. I still get looks like that but my fashion expresses who I am as a person , so I dont care what people think about my outfits.
Do you participate in your local fashion scene?
I try to , and I’m always influencing people around me , so I guess you could say that i do participate. I help others with their outfits as much as I can.
How does your day to day life factor into your wardrobe choices?
It’s a big factor in my wardrobe choices, because the things I see influence my fashion sense .
What is your greatest fashion pet peeve?
My greatest fashion pet peeve, when i was younger it was when I wasn’t matching but now its when people match too much , lol. Blue jeans, blue shirt, blue accessories, it drives me crazy. Fashion is meant to define the word ” Different ” things you don’t see on an everyday basis.
Have you ever tried your hand at design or sewing?
No, but im planing on starting soon. I have so many sketches, and i need to start practicing because im going to FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising).
Are there any designers that you like to wear or whose clothing stands out with you?
Where do i start, Chanel, Doir, Giorgio Armani, Michael Kors, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, the list goes on haha.
Who are your style icons?
Chanel Iman, Miley Cyrus, Abbey . Michael Jackson and Katy Perry.
