Introduce yourself!
Hello  readers of Cultures Of Venus. My name is Edwige Malembe and I am the author and editor of The fashion blog "Edwige À-La-Mode". I have been blogging since Febuary 2013 while studying Media Studies at University. Since the launch of Edwige À-La-Mode, I have been featured in Fashionbombdaily, Look Magazine, OK Nigeria, Zen Magazine and more.

How would you describe your sense of style?
My style currently is very feminine, and all about simplicity with a touch of elegance. But I'm always up for a change. My style changes with me as I change as a person. I'm always experimenting, I love mixing high street and high end together to create my desired outfits.

Where do you get your inspiration for each look?
I get inspiration from magazines, TV shows, Instagram and other bloggers. Mainly I visualize outfits in my head, from there I create my desired looks. 

Are there any celebrities/fashion icons whose style you admire?
My fashion and style inspiration has to be Kim K, Olivia Palermo and Rihanna. These ladies have crazy sense of style. I love the way they put outfits together because it's sexy, sophisticated and simple. They encourage me to try new and different styles. Right now I'm very obsessed with Kim K in particular, I love the fact that her style is always changing. She's not afraid to experiment. 

What’s your ‘Go-To’ outfit for when you need to get ready in a hurry?
I always go for basic t-shirts, denim jeans, big tote bag and Sandals.  When I'm in a rush the first thing I think of is comfy, and something that pretty much goes well with everything. 

What are the three favorite things in your closet?
1. My Gold heeled Sandals
2. My black midi bodycon dress 
3.  My big fur coat 

If you had the option of replacing all items in your closet with items from a particular designer. Who would that be?
Zara! I purchase most my clothes from there, I'm so in love with their designs. I feel at home in Zara I know I sound really weird right now (hides face).  Zara knows just how to entice me. I never want to leave the store, I love everything about it. 

What are some of your favorite shops or websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
I love, EBay, Zara, Topshop, TK Maxx, Berska, H&M and thrift shops. 

What fashion or styling tips would you give to someone who wants to improve their sense of style?  
Always stay true to yourself and go for something that works for your body type. Fashion is all about having fun! 

Is there a blog/webpage or Youtube channel where we can find you?
