Intro­duce your­self!
A: Hi! I’m Aki­la and I live in Atlanta, Geor­gia. I have a per­son­al style blog, onacruz.blogspot.com and I love any­thing artis­tic. I’m real­ly into mak­ing music, writ­ing sto­ries, and draw­ing or paint­ing.

What is your style phi­los­o­phy?
A: I try not to wear what every­one else is wear­ing unless I can make it look sig­nif­i­cant­ly dif­fer­ent or if I just can’t help it. I also always wear what I like and always try to be com­fort­able, if I’m not com­fort­able a wardrobe mal­func­tion is always around the cor­ner.

How would you describe your sense of style? 
A: I think my style is pret­ty at ease in a sense but also eclec­tic because I’m always get­ting inspi­ra­tion from every­where. It’s also very 90’s inspired.

What is your process of decid­ing what to wear in the morn­ing?
A: If I don’t have an out­fit picked out already, I usu­al­ly just choose one item when I wake up and build an out­fit around it, noth­ing too dras­tic. I usu­al­ly find that I have to plan out­fits the night before or else I’ll end up being late to wherever I’m going.

What are the three favorite things in your clos­et?
A: This is a tough one, for now I’d have to say my turtle­neck hounds-tooth crop top, a thrift­ed vel­vet blouse, and my Dr. Martens — I prob­a­bly wear my Doc’s over 20 times a mon­th no joke.

What are some of your favorite shops/websites for clothes, shoes and acces­sories?
A: I real­ly like Romwe.com, it’s street-fash­ion based and I can spend hours just brows­ing the site. A few oth­er ones would be Nec­es­sary Cloth­ing for every­thing, Forever 21 for dress­es, shoes, and acces­sories, and LoveCul­ture for basics. But for the most part I thrift at ran­dom shops.

How long have you been nat­u­ral?
A: I’ve always been nat­u­ral but for the last few years I’ve actu­al­ly been pay­ing atten­tion to my hair.

What is your sig­na­ture hair­style?
A: My sig­na­ture hair­style would be a twist out in a high pony/puff.

Describe your styling reg­i­men over the course of the mon­th.
A: I usu­al­ly co-wash my hair every two weeks, usu­al­ly after a wash I twist it up for a day, take out the twists the day after and re-twist using Shea but­ter to stretch my hair. In between that time I try to mois­tur­ize every two days or when­ev­er my hair feels dry.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
A: Yes! You can find me at onacruz.blogspot.com or check out my Tum­blr and Look­book.
