My name is Kachi, a Nigerian fashion and lifestyle blogger, born and raised in Nigeria. I grew up in Port-Harcourt, bounced around a bit – London, Paris, Accra and Amsterdam but London will always have my heart.
I believe that style permeates every area of life and a story lies behind every outfit. Staplesandstyle is a collection of personal style, outfit inspiration, brands I adore and an extension of my creativity because when I’m not blogging, I’m an interior decorator.
I’m thankful that I have curated a life that enables me explore the full spectrum of creativity – from decorating rustic, minimalist or modern living spaces to putting together an outfit for a birthday party, a walk in the park or the first day of the week.
Now I live in Abuja with my dog -Roxy who makes occasional appearances on the blog.
I believe that someday, there’ll be Nigerian fashion retail outlets at every turn with ready to wear pieces that are affordable for the everyday lady and I believe that chocolate cake and candy bars make the world go round.
What camera do you use and how do you edit your pictures?
I use a Nikon D5300 and a 18-55mm, 65-200mm and 75-300mm lens. I shoot in raw mode (and just recently learnt the advantages of this) from mossonyi’s THE BLOGGER PHOTOGRAPHER photography guide. I edit my photos with Lightroom and sometimes Photoshop.
Who takes your pictures?
What size do you wear?
I’m an American 4 which translates to a British 8 but I occasionally squeeze into a six when I want to put my full bod on display. For shoes, I’m a size 40.

Here at Fashion Police Nigeria, we are always mesmerized by those women with an exceptional sense of style, the ones that are always well put together — whether you see them running into the mall or heading to an event — they don’t compromise when it comes to style. We find this style blogger, Onyekachi Opara one of those women and she’s currently ranking on our list as one of the most stylish style bloggers in Nigeria.
Onyekachi, who is based in Abuja with Staples and Style blog on her name, is one of the most well-dressed women you never knew existed. She is good in the street style game, knows a thing or two about date night dressing, and we can all rely on her when it comes to 9-to-5 style. When we glanced through a few of her images, her style is totally worth a deep dive.
