Bright & Bold | Nikia Provenzano | Mad Maven

Happy Saturday everyone!

I wanted to kick off the weekend with a bold and bright post featuring one of my favorite models/bloggers/fashion designers/ boss babes... the absolutely stunning Nikia Provenzano aka Mad Maven Style.

We've worked together only a handful of times but after each session I rush home to get my hands on our photos, and I am always in awe. Nikia has such a distinct style and isn't afraid to take chances when it comes to fashion. Her boldness is admirable and inspiring for so many reasons.

For me Nikia is a person who is willing to take chances not only in the fashion industry but in life. Our talks over dinners have been nothing less than motivating. She is a woman who is determined to make an impact on the world with bold statements in and outside of her photographs. Nikia stands up for what she believes in but does so with compassion and grace. 

I wanted to bring a new element to the blog, something that could connect my readers to the people of the photographs even further. Nikia is the first to have conducted a mini interview with me and I am so excited to share her answers.

Q: "You have such a unique aura in all of your images, how would you describe your signature style?" 

A: "My signature style always starts with a statement jewelry piece and ends with a bold lipstick. I like to think of my style as Vintage Islander or 90's Islander. Haha it's weird but I dig it."

Q: " Handling so many different jobs and roles as a model, a blogger, a designer, a jewelry maker... it seems like so much to handle. How do you stay constantly inspired?"

A: "The way I stay inspired is I'm always trying to stay busy. Always being inspired by my friends and others that do the same things I am. Design is an endless road of possibilities, I usually look up cool runway show photos and try to tweak and replicate certain designs to what I'd like them to be. I'm super ADD though, so I'm always hopping from one thing to the next."

Q: " Alright, now for a fun question... If you could hangout with anyone (dead or alive) for a day who would it be and why? "

A: " Oh man, what a hard question! I would want to hang out with my grandmas again, both of them. They died when I was pretty young, but I'd love to just sit and talk to them about things in their childhood and past. Fashion, love, life. Intimate things only women could discuss in full detail. Man, i'd really love that. Is that a boring answer? Haha I guess someone famous would be Estelle Getty! I mean, she was the best character in the Golden Girls."

 Love Nikia's style as much as I do? Want to treat yourself and order a pair of custom pom earrings?
