Aramide “Dee Dee” Esubi is a fashion girl at heart who originally hails from St. Louis and is currently living in Chicago. She brings her “fashion is fun” philosophy to life as a fashion stylist and as owner/editor of fashion blog, The Sassy Peach. Her other loves include makeup, food and all things Bob Marley. Sharing a birthday with the fabulous Coco Chanel, it’s safe to say she was fashionably born this way.

EDO: What’s your absolute favorite subject matter to cover on your blog?
AE: My absolute favorite subject matter to cover on TSP is what’s in the stores. I love sharing with my readers what I find online or while I’m out and about shopping. Whether it be a really great deal or that perfect little number for a special occasion, I share it.
EDO: Which designer inspires you the most?
AE: Rachel Roy. I have always been a fan of her designs and her aesthetic. Not only do I love her attention to detail and the way she hones in on a woman’s figure, but also her philanthropic efforts with orgs such as FEED and OrphanAid. It’s just lovely to see.
EDO: Ultimate piece of beauty advice?
AE: Never leave home without at least a little bit of makeup. Of course there are those “cheat days” where it may not happen, but try your best to at least do some foundation or tinted moisturizer, a swipe or two of mascara, a bit of lipstick and boom, you’re done! You never know who you’ll run into or see! A little bit of face goes a long way ;)
EDO: Favorite place to eat in Chicago?
AE: So hard to choose since eating is one of my favorite pastimes, but I’m going to go with Prasino in Wicker Park–especially for their brunch. The food is de-li-cious, they’ve got great outdoor seating and the service is top-notch. I highly recommend!
EDO: Describe your closet in 3 words.
AE: Fun, Girly and Sassy
EDO: What’s coming up next for you?
AE: Nothing maje of note but I’m definitely excited for what’s on the horizon. Stay tuned!
