Hi there! My name is Foyin Ogunrombi (otherwise known as Foyin Og) and I began this little blog in June 2012 as a means of personal expression. I wanted to showcase my favourite fashions, outfits, music, photography and writing, among other things.
Even though DearSolo has been around for a while (a few years constitutes as a while, right?), Solo is still a baby, trying to find her footing and the perfect balance between fashion and writing; art and outfits; the world in which she is and the world in which she wishes to be.
I believe in this fundamental truth about fashion, and by extension, blogging: it is the ultimate way to live forever. With each new endeavor, you reinvent yourself; you can become a completely new person and have a completely different life at will. You have the power to be anyone you want for however long you want. You are the curator of your own aesthetic – and you should let that power liberate you, not frighten you.
I’ve been around for a while, from being in the Seventeen Magazine Style Counsel, to being a Style Africa Fashion Week Correspondent and A Fashion Friend guest blogger, and I think I’m getting the hang of this whole blogger thing.
Solo is young, Solo is free, Solo is doing whatever she likes and Solo is just a blog, standing in front of the internet, asking you to read it.
If you would like to contact me regarding invitations, press packages, collaborations, or just to say hello, feel free to contact me via email or my various social media. If you would like me to be a media/event correspondent, style reporter or stylist, also feel free to contact me.
Regarding press: I believe in the honesty policy, that is, if you ask me to blog about a certain product, I will be completely honest about whether it was good or not, even if it was a freebie (and errrrbody loves freebies!). I will also disclose when a product was a gift or not – as a means of transparency.
If you would like my media kit and other statistics, please request it via email!
