Introducing Vivi of Heart, Print & Style

It's my pleasure to introduce Vivi of and her amazing style blog Heart, Print and Style! Check her out. 

Tell us about yourself, who is Vivi?

 I always stumble on these kind of questions because I don't do well describing myself. Hmmm. Vivi is a Nigerian-American who loves style. She's also a big fan of the NBA (Hey, Melo!). Lover of thrifting, music, TV shows (Long live "LOST"!), writing, and reading a good book/magazine.

What inspired you to start a blog?

 A number of things but the main one being my sister. She was hip to style blogs before I was (I was more into personal blogs). She kept pestering me to start a blog especially since she only saw just a handful of plus size bloggers at that time. While that was going on, I found out about GabiFresh (back then it was Young, Fat, and Fabulous). She had a feature called YFF of the Day and I decided to submit a few photos. Well, she loved my photos and selected me to be featured. Even though I waited almost a year later after the feature to start my blog, it was definitely the kick I needed to do so.

What are some of your favorite trends/pieces that you're wearing this Spring? 

Black/white, mixing prints, monochromatic

Who are your style icons? 

Gwen Stefani is my numero uno. Gotta add Solange Knowles, too. The queen of mixing prints.

Anything else?
