Meeting the beautiful skin expert for an interview was a very memorable one. Because indeed she had this Irresistible flawless ‘skin so fresh, it’s edible!’ Why interview Leslie? Of course I was curious to know what this beauty expert thinks of style, and what her style picks in fashion trends would be and I was not disappointed.


In Her Bag

Name: Leslie Blossom Okoye

Occupation: Skin care expert, CEO of CookieSkin

Personal Style: If I had to define it, I’ll say I’m Classic casual. I like to keep it simple and tend to buy functional but timeless pieces with classic cuts, fabrics and colors that never go out of style. So it could cost $50 or $500 so far as it flatters my body shape and can last 10 washes, it’s worth trying on. On the other hand, I do love pretty elegance even in simplicity.
