Folake Kuye Huntoon of Style Pantry is one of my absolute favorite blogs. I’ve been following the site for several years even before I broke into fashion and where I keep up with different styles and trends. I love Folake’s style and the way she pieces things together. Style Pantry is a very popular blog and has received several press mentions in media outlets like Essence, Huffington Post, Refinery 29, and more. The fashion blogger has been invited to several award shows, including walking the red carpet and showcasing her fabulous style for the first time at the 2013 Oscar Awards and attending again in 2014 and 2015. If you haven’t already, I suggest you follow Style Pantry as the fashion icon to watch.
