About Me

PA0_6511-3588151880-OSkinny Hipster is owned and curated by Nifesimi, a Nigerian- American living in Baltimore, Maryland.  The concept of “Skinny Hipster”  began in 2008  as an online fashion diary showcasing her love of unique and bold pieces.  Since then, her site has grown beyond personal style to serve as a platform for sharing fashion inspirations from social media, red carpets, street style as well as features from other stylists and bloggers across the world.

Nifesimi is a lover of all things bold and inspiring, including prints, bright colors and clean lines. She is always ready to experiment and her nigerian heritage constantly serves as a influence in her fashion looks.
When she is not immersed in the fashion world she is working towards a degree in marketing and spending time with her family and friends.

    My name is Ada, and I am a DC-based, certified fitness instructor. While I love the workouts I do in the US, I cannot hide my pride in our Nigerian culture. I am also passionate about revamping the face that fitness has back home, and making it an enjoyable experience. To that end, I’ve put together several workouts to Nigerian songs. The goal is to release one on YouTube per week. I was hoping you could help me get the word out by posting on your page. Please view and let me know what you think. Also, subscribe, and you’ll know when a new one is released.

    Hi Nife,
    I am so loving your blog, your style is right up my alley. I first saw you on @peakmill ‘s YT channel and you guys were showing an assortment of OOTDs you wore and there was this one particular outfit where you paired a pink dress, white shirt and a turquoise trench and I thought ” How bold,how daring….how me!” lol
    Love what you create, you truly inspire me & my work
    Love from South Africa,
    Gugu (@missgeecoza)
