SHOPPING SPOTLIGHT: DIRTY TUESDAY BY IMANI O’BLIGE
It has been a relaxing & lazy Saturday for me but I had to make sure I gave all of you a special treat to keep you intrigued on my special features coming up!
At the very first photoshoot/video shoot for new music artist Velous that I’ve previously written about I was able to meet a stylist on set by the name of Imani O’Blige. She had such a distinct and fun style that she brought to the set and through the clothing that she chose for the girls on set of the video. Every girl she dressed was styled with their own look which complimented their physique which allowed you to look at each girl differently which is true work of a good stylist!
Check out one of the girls on set styled by Imani below:
We met and chatted about fashion and I told her I was a blogger and she informed me that she would be launching an e-commerce site soon. I told her I’d love to feature her once it was launched and viola! Here we are now giving you a full detailed interview that I had with the gorgeous Imani O’blige discussing fashion and her site Dirty Tuesday (www.dirtytuesday.com)
When you visit her site you definitely can see the main theme of her clothing has a vintage appeal, although they don’t give you a dated feel. The pieces are bright, eclectic, and fun yet updated with shoes and accessories that give it more of a current and modern feel! She even has a blog on her site to give you up close visuals of her pieces sold on the site so be sure to check it out!
Okay, enough talking lol…Check out the gorgeous and talented Imani O’Blige and out interview below!
Tell me about yourself. Name. Age. Location. What is your profession? Why you love fashion….
Ello! My name is Imani Azure O’Blige, I’m 21 years of age from Paterson, NJ and I am the Creator of Dirty Tuesday. I love fashion! It’s like a bitch with multiple personalities. One day she’s cute and drenched in color blocking RTW (Ready To Wear) and the next she’s badass in gritty couture. <3
How did you come up with the name Dirty Tuesday for your site? Does it have a personal meaning?
The name definitely was by accident! I’m not usually a messy person but I was just having one of those days with shoes and clothes all over my floor. In the process of reaching my bed in the darkness, I stumbled and landed my face on my cell phone which read the date. Then Eureka! Dirty Room+Tuesday=Dirty Tuesday lol
I’ve been dying to sell vintage items for the longest, and since all successful businesses are also online, I figured I’d join the “in-crowd”.
How do you pick your pieces to sell on Dirty Tuesday? ( what inspires you to pick certain pieces)
Inspiration for Dirty Tuesday apparel comes from within. Cheesy right? lol It’s true! I see things that jump out at me like I do any time I shop and want to share it with everyone!
Describe the kind of girl that wears your clothing? Where is she going? Is she a teenager? Is she a young woman in her 20s?
You can be a teenager or a young adult. If you have a creative eye for fashion you are definitely a Dirty Tuesday girl.
How has your clothing site and blog help to build you a bigger platform to work fashion?
It’s given me a base understanding on marketing, trends, running a business and so forth as a startup for where I plan to go.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?
Between now and 5 years I see enormous growth for Dirty Tuesday! New experiences, big business, and plenty of supporters!
I’m excited to see the growth of Imani, her website, and her career development in fashion!
