Welcome to Kiki Style Diary, a creative space for my queens that love fashion and beauty. I’m Shakia and I would define my style as high street with a somewhat romantic feminine twist because I love anything with florals, ruffles and heels.
I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. After graduating with a college degree in Psychology, I had plans to work in the mental health field as a therapist for children. However, after spending some time in the corporate world, I realized working for someone else in corporate America just wasn’t for me. The nonsense and the stress that I endured in that world just wasn’t worth it so I decided to walk away to follow my passion. July of 2016, I started this blog as a creative outlet to explore my love of fashion. In January 2021, I decided to pursue blogging full time and I’ve enjoyed every minute of this journey.
Since launching Kiki Style Diary, I’ve been featured in a few publications including BET’s Hottest Street Style Spotted At New York Fashion Week and Fashion Bomb Daily’s Bombshell of the Day.
My main goal here with The Kiki Style Diary is to inspire women to embracing their own sense of style I want to show women how to develop the confidence to rock anything regardless of how old they are or what their budget is. Being fashionable doesn’t require a closet full of designer labels such as in clothing, bags, or belts etc. I believe that anything and everything can look amazing. It’s just what you make of it!
In addition to blogging, I enjoy staying fit and healthy through regular exercise and a clean diet. I also find creative inspiration through shopping, adventure, traveling, and exploring new places. I’m excited and humbled to have the opportunity to build a platform that allows me to share something I’m so passionate about. It’s my hope that I can build a community of like-minded women who want to dive into expressing themselves through fashion.
Always feel free to reach out to me at anytime if you want to chat or just simply say hi! On most social networks I’m at @kikistylediary.
