Your City, Your Style: Detroit Edition with Ruma

Style Blogger & Detroiter Ruma of @Amurvruma channels her city’s influence on her style and owning it. The Ahfif Team met up with Ruma at ISNA this year and got to know her down to earth personality and about keeping it real while being in the spotlight. Get to know her too through this “Your City, Your Style” feature…

How does your city influence your style?

The city I grew up in is very eclectic as well as rough around the edges. Hence the whole Detroit vs Everybody ordeal. I’m very colourful and animated like my city, love a splash of color. The city allows me to channel my inner tomboy all the while being boho-chic.

What’s the best piece of style advice you’ve been given?

Style is an expression of your individuality. You don’t need a vogue magazine to tell you how to dress. You’re unique, own it.

Tell us what you love the most about your favorite Ahfif item?

I love Ahfif‘s brand because of the asthetics portrayed. Very strong and ethereal at the same time. This speaks for the items as well. My favorite piece was the Ark & Co Wrap Around Dress: it’s the perfect go-to dress for a formal event. Extremely comfortable and definitely makes a statement.

Ahfif Pop Up Booth Shenanigens

Here is a peak at the Ahfif Pop Up Booth in ISNA, Chicago – in pictures! We had such an amazing time and it was so exciting to meet mid West Ahfif members, new members and familiar faces from Cali. We definitely felt the love and can’t wait to return!

Ladies traveled far and wide to get to us – word of mouth and wearing our stuff the next day of the event definitely helped! Word spread like wildfire and we sold out of our popular items.

TRUE STORY: An Ahfif member shopping that day told us that she was already 30 minutes outside of town when her sister told her we here – she drove back immediately (leaving her twins and babysitter for another hour!). I’m sure her sister didn’t mind because she had head back with gifts in tow! (The hype was real).
