Introduce yourself!
A:
Hello! My name is Antia Joseph and I am a Brooklyn native! I am a singer breaking into the Christian Music industry.

What is your style philosophy?
A:
You should always be able to make a statement with your clothing no matter what your budget may be. Money doesn’t buy style; spending top dollar doesn’t guarantee a great outfit. I have outfits that cost less than a Thai dinner. I love mixing and matching my pieces and I don’t mind investing in a great quality piece from time to time.

What is the process of deciding what to wear in the morning?
A:
Let’s just say my room almost always looks like a tornado hit when I’m done. I usually just do trial and error; I’ll try an idea, if it works GREAT! If not then NEXT Lol! I dress based on my mood; sometimes I feel bold, other days comfortable and low maintenance.

How would you describe your sense of style?
A:
I think my style matches my personality. Laid back, goofy, boyish and yet a girlish charm all at the same time.

What are the three favorite things in your closet?
A:
1. My BB Dakota leather bolero jacket. 2. A vintage leather bag with an eagle medallion on the front. I got it at a vintage liquidator store called Peachfrog in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It’s closed now 🙁 3. My classic Gap denim chambray shirt. I’ve had it since I was 14!

What are some of your favorite shops/websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
A:
My Mothers closet. I thrift a lot and don’t really have a set of stores. If I see it and I like it I’ll get it Lol.

How long have you been natural?
A:
My whole life. My mom would not allow me to get that perm that I wanted so badly, and now I’m thankful for that.

What is your signature hairstyle?
A:
If you bump into me in the street 9 times out of 10 I’ll have an updo with a pompadour. I love the versatility of that style. I also love the fact that it looks good with an array of various looks.

Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
A:
My number one rule is to keep my hair moisturized. I have a spray bottle filled with water, jojoba oil and vitamin E oil. I spray my hair a couple of times daily depending on what my hairstyle is for that day, then I seal it with coconut oil. (which is my favorite oil – it’s so light and it’s an excellent moisturizer, conditioner and sealant) I usually try to keep styles that I can wear for weeks at a time to minimize hair manipulation. So that means a lot of braid up styles, twists, buns, etc. I like to stretch styles, so when I have twists in my hair and I’m over them I will unravel them until I’m almost at the top, this creates a very cute twist out look.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
A:
Instagram: @AWalkingDoxology
Also my Music groups website: www.DestinyMusicGroup.net
Thanks a lot! 🙂

Beautiful girl, with hair and style to match. I like that her style can’t be pigeonholed into classic, trendy, preppy, or vintage because she is rocking all of those looks. Love!
