Heads Up, Skirts Down

New blog, who dis?


This earpiece makes me want to lose weight so I have a chin again, cut my hair off, get a tan, and start living my most gorgeous life. Danai is EVERYTHING.

Some pretty for your midweek- and shoutout to a major label actually using  a Black model for a major campaign!

So striking and rich- I am in LOVE with those earrings in the profile shot and this black suit.

She’s gorgeous, clearly, but I love the texture of these shots. A little sexy- pretty for a grey Tuesday.

How gorgeous are these looks? PLEASE head over to The Lingerie Addict if undies are your jam.
All I know is I need a gorgeous suite with a proper budoir somewhere in Capri or the French Rivera to swan around in wearing that robe.  Yes, THAT robe.

i always liked housecleaning
even as a child
i dug straightening
the cabinets
putting new paper on
the shelves
washing the refrigerator
inside out
and unfortunately this habit has
carried over and i find
i must remove you
from my life

Gucci, Pre-Fall 2017

I’ve been sitting with these photos for weeks, because I wasn’t sure whether or not I wanted to post them. I love fashion, obviously, and I LUUUUURVE Black folks, but this…I don’t know. It hit me in a weird spot.

Inspiration came from England’s underground Northern Soul movement, sparked by the prominent uprising of Black American soul music of the 1960s, as well as Malian photographer Malick Sidibé, who died in 2016.

I’m torn. I appreciate a major house campaign being portrayed exclusively by Black models, and the photos themselves are dope. But I am uncomfortably aware that their Blackness is part of the “art direction.”

Anyhow, enjoy the photos, which are gorgeous. But I’m curious what type of representation we will see next season when Blackness isn’t the theme.
