The Pink Joy

Hey Chicas, it’s been a minute since I had a ‘my style” feature and today, I am very  happy to be exploring the closet of a glamzing (glam & amazing) fashionista, The Pink Joy. Not only is she a fellow blogger, we went to high school together and I am really excited that she’s sharing her style with us.

The PinkJoy says

My mom has always inspired my style. She taught me how to mix opposite pairings together-vintage with new, masculine with feminine, classic with trendy, soft with hard, high with low. I would describe my style as "vibrant retro chic". I am a girl who loves being one-of-a-kind by making a statement wherever I go. I love playing dress up and taking risks with fashion. My style mantra is simply "Go Bold or Go Home".

MINKU: BAG DESIGN FROM THE INSIDE OUT


A true artisan knows that the inside of a bag is as important as the outside. With this approach in mind, Minku Leather Goods has released their AW2013-14 collection. Paying attention to the intricacies of both visible and concealed details, the bags in this collection have been made from exuberant materials such as aso-oke, damasks and Spanish-sourced leathers.

The brain child of Kunmi Otitoju, a former Virginia based computer science consultant, Minku bags convey a contemporary sub-Saharan aesthetic.


The Minku line carries items for both men and women. Prices range from 35EUR for small lined purses to 750EUR for luggage. Clients also have the option of requesting customized versions of bags in the Minku catalog, selecting from a range of high quality leathers and hand-woven fabrics.




For more information, contact Kunmi via the links below
