Tell us more about yourself.
I’m a wife, mom, blogger, owner of EliFab Accessories, and an Engineer by profession with Nigerian origins blogging at www.mysixthlens.blogspot.com. I’m a lover of all things fashion and a bit of a shoe junky to the extent that my wallet allows me. I love and cherish my little family so spending time with them and creating a family legacy is my top priority. I love to cook, eat and the most obvious one of all, I love shopping.

Who is your favorite shoe icon?
Hard to pick one, but I’ll go with Blake Lively and Olivia Palermo. I can say we have similar styles when it comes to shoes. They are practically perfectly coordinated with their outfits and they make a statement on their own but not over the top. Their shoes are clean, classic, elegant, fun and a bit edgy when appropriate.

Favorite Shoe designers/brands?
Favorite designer/brand, I love Sophia Webster, Jimmy Choo, Calvin Klein and Victoria’s secret; but, you mostly like won’t find the first two brands in my closet. I currently wear a lot Victoria secret for a number of reasons. I’m a size 11, so a true 11 is hard find at an affordable price that's comfortable and of course cute and stylish.

Do you have a particular pair of shoes that you love more than the rest or have had a memorable experience with?
A pair of shoes I love more than the rest and I have a memorable moment with is my wedding shoes. It’s a pair of white Calvin Klein’s. Although they don’t get much wear, which may or may not be due to the fact that I’m a little protective of them.

How Many pairs of shoes do you own?
Oh gosh….well, after counting, I ended up with 110. Although, I’m currently in the process of disposing some of them. That's not to say there won't be new additions.
Heels or flats?
Heels. But, chances are, I have a pair of flats somewhere close by.
Comfort or style?
Style, especially when you’re a size 11. Sometimes you just have to throw comfort out the window. Still own a copy of size 10 /10.5 that I refuse to let go of. J
What is your overall style mantra and philosophy?
|Heels from Victoria's Secret|
For me, the most important thing to remember is that, it’s not about who you’re wearing but how you wear it. My style is simple, feminine and classic so that’s what I gravitate towards. I wear what I love and I like to keep things simple while still keeping it interesting. My goal is always to own the look I wear and wear it with confidence.
Describe the perfect outfit with the perfect shoes and where would you wear it?
Perfect outfit: A black & white print, midi length, slightly off shoulder, fit & flare dress with full skirt and just a little high-low detail on the bottom.
Perfect shoes: Perfect shoe for that dress for me will be a classic pointed-toe black pump with a curved cut along the edges and some bling details.
Loving the sound of that outfit! Thanks for sharing your shoe life with us Chrisitana. Hope you guys enjoy this new series! xx
