Intro­duce your­self!
V:
My name is Vic­to­ria Sanders. I live in Los Ange­les by way of Alaba­ma and DC. I’m a wardrobe styl­ist and fash­ion blog­ger.

What is your style phi­los­o­phy?
V:
My style phi­los­o­phy is: wear what­ev­er you like, but wear it with con­fi­dence.

How would you describe your sense of style?
V:
Hmmm… I don’t real­ly like to place a def­i­n­i­tion on it because I’m forever evolv­ing. How­ev­er, I will say that I like to mix prints and tex­tures and I LOVE col­or.

What is the process of decid­ing what to wear in the morn­ing?
V:
The weath­er and my mood are the only things that shape what I’m wear­ing. In the morn­ing I nor­mal­ly trash my room by throw­ing every­thing out of my clos­et des­per­ate­ly try­ing to put togeth­er the “per­fect” look. I get exas­per­at­ed, almost give up, and then stum­ble upon some amaz­ing com­bi­na­tion of clothes that I didn’t think of ini­tial­ly. I wish I could be cool and say it’s an effort­less process, but it’s not. Lol

What are the three favorite things in your clos­et?
V:
This is a hard one because I love every­thing in my clos­et equal­ly.
1 — Leather Con­verse (I nev­er blog or Insta­gram in them, but I wear them prac­ti­cal­ly every­day while I’m work­ing with some sort of cute dress).
2 — Leather jack­et from Zara. Some­thing about a leather jack­et makes any out­fit instant­ly cool.
3 — White Jump­suit from BB Dako­ta. This is a new piece for me, but I’m SO in love with it. The cut fits my body per­fect­ly and it’s such a clas­sic piece.

What are some of your favorite shops/websites for clothes, shoes and acces­sories?
V:
For Every­thing:
Top­Shop
BooHoo.com
Zara
Net-A-Porter
Shop­bop

For Acces­sories:
BoujiBroad.com

How long have you been nat­u­ral?
V:
My entire life. Crazy, huh? My mom nev­er gave me a relax­er. I didn’t even know it was con­sid­ered “nat­u­ral” until about 2 years ago.

What is your sig­na­ture hair­style?
V:
My curly fro!!!

Describe your styling reg­i­men over the course of the mon­th.
V:
Week­ly, I start by deep con­di­tion­ing with a home­made con­coc­tion (1 egg, half a banana, olive oil, hon­ey). I leave this on my hair for 45 min­utes to an hour. Then I steam my hair with my Q-Redew Hand­held Hair Steamer and co-wash with Heav­en­ly Scent Opu­lent­ly Organ­ic Con­di­tion­er (I mix in about 2 table­spoons of cas­tor oil in the jar). If I’m doing a WNG I use Mixed Chicks Leave-In Con­di­tion­er, Kinky Curly Knot Today, coconut oil, and then scrunch with Curls God­dess Curl Gel.

I nor­mal­ly co-wash my hair about 2–3 times a week depend­ing on how dry I feel my hair is and I steam at least twice a week. At night I pineap­ple and sleep on a sat­in pil­low­case. In the morn­ings I refresh my curls by mist­ing them with a lit­tle water and veg­etable glyc­er­in. Also, I fol­low the Curly Girl Method, so I don’t use sham­poo or any prod­ucts that con­tain sil­i­cone or sul­fates. I make sure to get my ends trimmed when they need it, and I use heat once every 6 months or so.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
