Steal Her Style: Ellese Ferdinands

Get to know fashionista and future Dr. Ellese! See how she styled some of her favourite Peppermayo pieces and find out where she gets her style inspiration.

How would you describe your personal style?

My personal style is definitely dependent on my mood - usually with some sort of sporty/girly vibes like dresses with sneakers.

Who is your style icon?

My style icon is my mum! Definitely got my sense of style from her. I also love everything Hayley Baldwin & Kendall Jenner wear.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Everywhere! I feel like I’m mostly inspired when I travel, especially to new cities and I love looking through fashion magazines and browsing Pinterest.

What are your favourite beauty products?

I’m 100% a mascara girl! I love long, voluminous lashes and am always switching between them. My other fave is lots of highlighter on my cheekbones! 

What are your wardrobe staples?

An oversized denim jacket, cute summer dresses, sneakers and a pair of sunnies.

What inspired you to become an influencer?

Definitely magazines! When I was younger I wanted to work in magazines, and so fell into blogging and Instagram instead - it’s like curating your own personal magazine and you have complete control.

What has been your career highlight as an influencer?

Definitely all the people I have met, some of my closest friends have been through influencing. Other highlights include working with brands I admire, hotel stays and the travel perks. Plus this Peppermayo photoshoot :)

Tell us something about you not many people know.

I’m doing my PhD at uni in Business so my official title will soon be Dr Ellese haha

What are your future goals?

I definitely want to do heaps more travel in the next few years and would love to eventually combine my influencing work with my research by creating a digital consulting company.
