As some may have noticed I took a hiatus from the blog. In the midst of everything that was going on...it became a bit of beast to manage.
In its new incarnation I wanted it to provide a voice that I think is growing but still not where it should be. Diversity...bringing more light to all the muti-hued lovers of fashion, beauty and design. I'd grown a bit burnt out on seeing the same paper dolls getting all the attention. I love my pale (or tan) blonde sisters as much as the next but there is so much more to see. We've got to broaden our perspective of what beautiful is.
What I know for sure is that as much as I traveled the world, the places I find most exciting are the places with true melding of cultures...centuries of complex, courageous and gorgeous integrations (And I don't mean cultural appropriations--some of ya'll need to watch that...braid trend spawned by some UFC champ or Kim Kardashian...as if...good brief braids have been a staple of tribal and urban style for decades albeit centuries..please don't make me go there with you).
As an American (which I proudly say when we are acting right!), I truly I believe our greatness is due to the melting and mixture of many cultures, ways of thinking and doing. As much as a loud minority would hate to admit--the best of you and in LARGE PART America didn't come from the purity of a blood line or the ingenuity of one group. Very much the exact opposite. Google inbred. You're welcome.
As far as the blog goes my ultimate mission remains firm to curate the fashions and people that move me. Join me as I journey through this fashion, beauty and design world that we all love -albeit with a bit more diversity. Hopefully, you'll discover something ( or someone ) you've never seen or thought to see.
