African Blogs: The Fashionista Edition



African fashionistas are taking over the blogosphere! Here are some blogs of note:

1. Fashion Junkii: At the helm of Fashion Junkii is a Tanzanian girl "obsessed with fashion." As she says, "I love everything fashion, I am into new trends, high end fashion, vintage fashion, adopting colors, styling, designing, love red lipstick (classic), love heels, handbags and I love people who appreciate fashion." Visit Fashion Junkii for fashion tips, keep browsing the blog for all the photos from Tanzania featuring the most stylish fashionistas on the local scene: fashionjunkii.onsugar.com

2. Africana Wardrobe Diary: The Africana Wardrobe Diary, which is run by a Nigerian fashionista, is a daily log of outfits by the Nigerian fashionista that incorporate elements of African fashion with everything from bold patterns, to bright colors. Find daily inspiration at: africanainatlanta.blogspot.com

3. Marian Kihogo: Ghanaian stylist Marian Kihogo has been featured in MIMI; first, she shared her Top 5 Fashion Tips, and more recently she styled MIMI's September 2008 cover featuring Teiko Dornor and Matthew Mensah. On her eponymous blog, Marian shares more of her fashion tips and looks that she has styled. Keep up with Marian by visiting: mariankihogo.blogspot.com

I am a Fashion Junkii junkie (ha!). The local Tanzanian fashion scene is also my favorite part of the blog. I want to know how she is able to get all those expensive designer shoes and clothes. Tell us your style secrets.
