Dellisa Duncan: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Inspiration: Dream

Passion: Persist

Strength: Wisdom

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I am a being, constantly evolving and trying to inspire others to do the same.

Why do you do what you do?

I love fashion. I love the way each outfit transforms the way I feel. A pair of heels takes me in one direction and my sneakers, in another. I like that- the endless possibilities of where an outfit can take you.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

As a kid playing dress up was my favorite game. I’d always go into my cousin’s closet and try on her clothes and put together outfits.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Getting people to snap my pictures. My handy dandy photographers (aka my friends and family) are not always available. But someone tends to come through.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Yes, Karen Blanchard. She’s an amazing fashion blogger. She was one of the first major black bloggers I came across who made me think, “hey, I can do that too!”

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Oh so many mistakes I’ve made. I kind of drove into blogging headfirst. I’ve learnt that doing my research beforehand is important. Also talking to people who has been doing it and getting pointers.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Yes, I’ve been on a blogging hiatus. I’ll be back to blogging on a regular in July. Also, I’ve been working with a few brands to collaborate with launches and promos (more of that to come)

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Find what it is that you love to do and do it. There’s so much happiness in fulfilling your own dreams rather than that of others

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

There’s nothing heels and red lipstick won’t solve
