To kick of the street style feature on MyStyleDaily, I had the opportunity to interview journalist Nyvia Weathersby. She has worked with Vogue Magazine, Refinery 29, Rodarte, and VIBE and has a great sense of personal style.
Me: Tell me about your site and why you started blogging?
Nyvia: My blog is a continuation of my website , NWjournalist .com . I started my style blog during my internship at Vogue Magazine to keep track of my experiences with the company and fashion do’s/ dont’s. I was also freelancing as a Celebrity Stylist and Journalist. It started off as a great way to showcase my work apart from my journalism website. Eventually I trashed my website and stuck to my blog.
Me: How would you describe your personal style?
Nyvia: My personal style is pretty eclectic and varies. I have a main aesthetic I try to stick to which seems to always involve a vintage or thrift find. I love mixing casuals and funky prints together. I also love colorblocking and combining light and heavy materials together.
Me: Where are your favorite places to shop?
Nyvia: My favorite place to shop are thrift stores. I find amazing pieces at American Way, Out Of The Closet and sometimes Buffalo Exchange. I love shopping at small vintage/ thrift boutiques on Melrose or Downtown Burbank.
Me: What was your most exciting career experience so far?
Nyvia: Since obtaining my degree from Woodbury University I have had more opportunities to travel with companies I freelance with. I began working with Mega Growth this past year and had the opportunity to travel to Atlanta for our celebrity beauty event. Not too long after that I was asked to freelance for The Bahama Weekly and traveled to Freeport,Grand Bahamas for some events and interviews. That was an amazing experience.
