I HAD THE PLEASURE OF SPEAKING WITH D'SHONDRA RIDEOUT! A VERY TALENTED SONGSTRESS AND FELLOW MICHIGANDER THAT I FIRST NOTICED ON KIRK FRANKLIN'S "JESUS" OFF OF HIS CD THE FIGHT OF MY LIFE. HERE IS THE SONG BELOW:
SHE IS A VERY DRIVEN YOUNG LADY THAT IS CHASING AFTER HER DREAMS! I KNEW THAT MANY YOUNG LADIES (CHRISTIAN OR NOT) WOULD BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY WITH HER! I INTERVIEWED HER THIS PAST WEEK. EVEN WITH HER SCHEDULE SHE WAS NICE ENOUGH TO INTERVIEW WITH ME AND I THANK HER! I JUST WANTED TO KNOW MORE ABOUT HER STYLE BECAUSE SHE ALWAYS LOOKS SO DARN CUTE AND I KNEW MANY OTHERS WOULD LOVE TO KNOW AS WELL!
YOU CAN KEEP UP WITH HER ON HER TWITTER HERE.
SO CHECK OUT D'SHONDRA!
1) I have seen you in person a couple of times, and you always look so nice! How would you explain your personal style?
-well thanks!! :-) I'm very old school.. I lived with my grandparents for a while so a bit of grandmoms style became my style. On an average day I like to wear jeans and a blazer with a very cute shoe(I LOVE SHOES!!!) overall my style would be comfortable/casual chic.
2) Being a fellow church girl, how do you express your style at church? What are some of your favorite things to wear?
-I love women's suits! I own so many lol I will usually wear a suit with sky high heels or a nice dress.
3) What are some of your favorite trends for the Fall/Winter?
- Fall is definitely my favorite season. I'm loving the faux furs and riding boots. I just like being able to actually 'dress'!
4) What are some of your favorite beauty products?
- M.A.C. Anything lol Since I travel so much and I have to wear makeup often a good face wash is VITAL!! My skin is weird(very oily and acne prone), so I use Neutrogena oil free acne stress control. The whole line works wonders for me.
5) What would you say to someone who is reaching for their dreams like you are reaching for yours?
- Just stay focused on God, stay in your Bible, and don't ever conform to this world. It WILL get hard to stay on track sometimes and it's easy to get discouraged but God is always there, and trust me... He has your back! Don't give up!!
6) Would you like to add anything else?
;-) not unless you want to ask more!
I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU AGAIN TO D'SHONDRA AND I PRAY THAT SHE CONTINUES TO REACH FOR HER DREAMS! CHECK HER OUT AT http://www.twitter.com/DSHONDRA
MUCH LOVE AND GOD BLESS!
