HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE? Subtle eclectic. My style is not style. I wear what moves me, what represents where my heart and mind are in that moment. It's not uncommon for me to be snatched in a pencil skirt and stilettos and then the next day in harem pants and a vintage tee. I don't like labels- people are too multi dimensional to fit in one bucket.
WHAT DOES NOT A BASIC BABE MEAN TO YOU? A woman that goes against the grain, ruffles feathers for a reason, not just because she can. A lover & a fighter. An unapologetically complex soul that is continuously redefining herself and the world as we know it.
WHAT IS YOUR NOT A BASIC BABE ANTHEM? Oooh! Too many!!! Formation still speaks to me so let's go with that!
WHO INSPIRES YOU? those that love ferociously, and do what is necessary to provide for their loved ones (which includes their community) mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially. Those that make mistakes and fall but get back up and press on.
If we are talking who inspires me style-wise I like Erykah Badu, M.I.A, Rihanna....
CELEBRITY YOU WOULD WANT TO BE A STYLIST FOR: Jill Scott or Alicia Keys
IF YOU COULD TELL THE WORLD ONE THING ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT WOULD IT BE? That I'm a tough chick- been and supported many through a lot and I have always come through on the other side (scars and all). I succeed because there is no other option. But tough girls need to be cared for too.
