“My name is Emmanuella Oluwafunmilayo Ford and welcome to my world.”
I was born in New Lagos, Nigeria but lived in Accra, Ghana for most of my life. I came to the United States at the ripe old age of 8 years old and I have been hiding out in Montgomery, Alabama ever since (FYI, I just moved to Birmingham, AL as of 2015).
I recently got married November, 01, 2014 to the best man on earth, Mr. Samuel Ford. He is totally amazing, even though he won’t let me dress him. I also had a baby, little Samuel Kristian, on November 6th, 2017. When I tell you my whole life has changed since he was born…He is the light of my life and I dedicate this blog to him.
I have 2 huge brothers (both over 6’4), one older sister, one niece (budding fashionista) and one nephew. My mom and dad are both pastors and the absolute best people i’ve ever met.
From a young age i’ve always loved fashion. Every birthday and Christmas, I wanted my mom to buy me the most pink, the biggest, the puffiest dress she could find. My love for all things beautiful has never changed and I hope to enjoy it with every single one of you. I love fashion because it allows you to express yourself, to change yourself and to present yourself in various ways. What we wear, can tell more about us than the words we actually speak.
I created this site to share my passion with you. I am not an expert but I want to learn. and I want you to come along with me on this fashploration (not a real word).
