Top 12 Black Fashion Icons

February is almost over. Thank GOD, right? I’m ready for the sun to come out and for longer days and for styles to change. Speaking of transforming style, this leads me into the conversation of fashion’s revolution. In dedication of Black History Month, I’d like to share with you my top 12 African American fashion icons that many don’t know about. These women have broke down barriers and created names for themselves in a time of blatant racism.

Let’s start off with one of my absolute favorites: Dorothy Dandridge!

You Are Loved…Even on Valentine’s Day

Hey everyone! So, I’ve been catching up with blog readers…I’ve been liking, commenting, and subscribing some more! And, one thing I definitely noticed were the Valentine’s day posts! From the styling to just mere conversation, they’re literally everywhere. If you’re alone this Valentine’s day, the posts could seem haunting, daunting. But, if you’re with a special someone, the posts could further encourage your fairy tale high. Regardless of how you’re celebrating or who you are with, know that you are loved. No matter who you are or what you have done in the past, you are loved. At your best AND at your worst, you are completely, utterly, undeniably loved.

I decided to share a Spoken Word poem that I recently posted on my channel. Hope you feel as treasured as you ought to after listening 🙂

Ode to Fashion Week

In my Creative Writing class, we had about 10 minutes to construct a humorous prose or poem about something random. Good thing I was scrolling through Instagram and was bombarded by photos from this year’s fashion week! I wouldn’t have known what to write about. Guess I was inspired 😉 I decided to share it here with my fellow bloggers and fashion lovers. Here’s my “Ode to Fashion Week”.

Lupita, In Color

Go onto Google and type in the letter “L”, then “U”, then “P” in its search box, the name “lupita nyong’o” instantly pops up, which helps because I always seem to forget where the apostrophe belongs in her last name. Lupita Nyong’o is a Yale graduate, actress and should-be model! She has been what everyone has been talking about – from celebs, to stylists to viewers at home. The Kenyan beauty came into the scene in her nominated role in 12 Years a Slave and has been owning it since then! Lupita has been making her mark in the fashion industry, constantly and pleasantly surprising everyone with her effortless looks and natural beauty. She has even been featured and has graced the covers of several major magazines such as Dujour, Vogue Italia and Vanity Fair.

This is my first post I ever really dedicated to a celebrity. The ones prior to this one are simply because I just had the opportunity to meet them. This time around, it’s different. Though I love Lupita and all her fabulous-ness, it’s not exactly all about her right now. I have some pieces of you in here…some pieces of me in here, too. You see, I wasn’t aware of my skin color until the 8th grade.

Oh, winter. With it’s biting wind’s creeping into the bottoms of your pants, it’s flakes raising bumps on your skin, it’s frost as a chimney when you speak, it’s ices creating a personal skating rink.

It’s mostly around the winter time where our moods tend to get worse. We start to feel, or at least we especially notice that we are feeling “blah”. It’s true stuff, guys. I read about it. We miss the good ol’ sun! But, my thing is…even with the sun is around, don’t you realize that we’re always just waiting on the next big thing to happen in our lives?

Christmas – over. New Year’s – over. What is there to look forward to now?

Adorned in Armor (Dress to Kill)

Image

I think…I could turn anything around and make it fashion related. It’s the same way with my faith; I can make ANYTHING about my Jesus (many can attest to that lol).

I grew up in a God-fearing household and as I grew, I knew there was one thing I was definitely passionate about: fashion. I remember receiving a sketchpad and an arrangement of pencils from my art teacher as a gift. I would draw my prom dress, skirts, jeans, and just any apparel. I said I was designing my own line. I’m more into the styling thing now, which is one of the points of this blog. Now that I gave you all a brief background, let’s wrap this up, shall we? Basically, I just really really really really like dressing up. Like. Really.

New Year, Same You

I never made a New Year’s Resolution. Ever. As a child, I didn’t see the use of it and as I look back, I have to commend the young me. Why not make a resolution? Everyone was doing it. I even have a godfather that would chastise me to make one. I didn’t know why then, but I know now.

Christmas Shoes

“Sir I wanna buy these shoes

For my mama please

It’s Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size

Could you hurry, sir

Daddy says there’s not much time

You see,

She’s been sick for quite a while And I

know these shoes will make her smile And I

Want her to look beautiful

If mama meets Jesus tonight”

“The Christmas Shoes” is one of my favorite Christmas songs. I’m not a sentimental person but I could totally relate to this song. So, whenever it comes on, I go into deep thought, usually reminiscing of the past. As a child, I would listen to this song and tear up because I was that kid in the song – one that knew there was a possibility that her mother could meet Jesus at any given time.

He thinks you’re to die for…

I know this Guy and He wants you to get to know Him too. (Notice the capitalization? That’s just how special He is.)

He writes you love letters that are signed with His name at the bottom, but you always return to sender. He looks out for you but you call it luck. He has a whole love story written out for you, but you call it a fairy tale.
