What does your style say about you?
I think my style says I'am aware of fashion, but also stick true to myself. My style is contemporary with a bit of high fashion influence. More likely than not I am wearing some type denim because thats what I'm most comfortable in ~ Maya
My style is very true to who I am; simple and edgy. Simple pieces provide the foundation for the edgier pieces in my wardrobe. Like a white tee with super distressed denim, that's one of my go to looks. ~ Milan
In the mornings when you're getting dressed, what is one quirky thing that you always do?
We try to see what each other is wearing to avoid dressing alike, we hate to be a waking cliché, but somedays this does happen. Lol
There are so many inspirational women in this world. Which woman resonates with you the most and embodies your idea of femininity?
Tracee Ellis Ross is definitely a woman who embodies femininity. We've always looked up to her; her amazing style, goofy personality and cool hair. She is a woman who inspires other women to be themselves no matter. We're both really goofy and we love seeing other women who are about their business, but still have a sense of humor.
Which colors do you feel most comfortable wearing? Why?
I feel most comfortable in grey. Its such a cool shade and easy to match with. I love doing monochromatic gray looks that incorporate different shades of gray. ~ Maya
I have to chose gray as well. I'm attracted to all shades of gray, it's just so easy to style. ~ Milan
What does self love mean to you and how does that translate into your personal style?
Self Love should be the first thing you seek as a person. It enables you to be confident. Once you find self love you'll stop doing things that compromise your happiness just for the acceptance of others. I reflect self love through my style by only wearing things I feel good in. ~ Milan
Self love means loving yourself enough to be who you are. Never compromising your beliefs and sticking to what's true to you. ~ Maya
Every woman has her favorite go-to brands that she can always count on to have what she needs. What are some of yours?
My go to brand is J brand I know I can count on them for a great pair of jeans ~ Milan
I'm struggling with my go to brand, for awhile it was zara, but not so much anymore. When it comes to denim Joe Jeans and J band are my go-tos they always have a fit that works for me. ~ Maya

Mac lip liner in "Hover" and Nars blush in "Oasis" ~ Milan
What do you enjoy most about being a woman?
My favorite thing about being a woman is our power. Women have a strong sense of intuition, we know who we are and know how to get the things we want. ~ Maya
I love that we can wear so many variety of clothes including men's clothes and still look good ~ Milan
What are some of your every day essentials that you carry in your purse?

What is your favorite quote that inspires you and drives you be better and do better everyday?
"I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it..." - Revelation 3:8 This quote inspires me to keep reaching for my goals. As long as I'm true to myself and honoring God there is nothing anyone can do to stop me. ~ Milan
"..if God is for us, who can be against?" - Romans 8:31 My favorite verse that reminds me, with Jesus nothing or no one can come against me. It encourages me to push and continue to get all the things God has in store for me. ~ Maya
What is something that you want people to know about you that they don't already know?
Ever since I took film studies in high school I've been interested in cinematography. I loved having the opportunity to direct short films and learn how to operate cameras. In the future I hope to be able to direct or work with a film production team. ~ Maya
I'm an avid writer, mostly poems and short stories its been a passion of mine since I was a kid. I'm very private with my writings though. I like having something just for myself, it's therapy for me. ~ Milan
