And I'm Proud!

Hey Dolls!!

Happy Black History Month!!  I chose to show my appreciation by wearing one of my FAVORITE shirts!  
My shirt says it ALL.  You wouldn’t believe how long I’ve had this shirt.  I bought this shirt in New York at Dr. Jay’s in 2005 on a visit to see my friend Kim and celebrate my Best Friend Niesha’s Birthday.  Actually we ALL got one, we couldn’t resist LOL!! 
I have worn this shirt so many ways beacsue I’ve had it so long.  But this time I wanted to rocking up against all white and I LOVE how it turned out.  
What I’m Wearing – T-Shirt:  Ruff Ryders via Dr. Jay’s/Blouse:  Express/Blazer:  Old Navy/Pants: The Limited/Belt:  Target/Shoes:  Jessica Simpson/Earrings:  H&M/Ring:  Random 
During this month, I plan to include a Black History Fact with each post I make.  I hope you enjoy them, learn from them and even gain inspiration from them!

Black History Fact

The FIRST one is Miss Beverly Johnson.  I chose Beverly because she was one of the first African American Females to make Fashion History!  Here is a snippet of Beverly’s accomplishments below:

Beverly Johnson (born October 13, 1952) is an American model, actress, and businesswoman. She made history when she rose to fame as the FIRST BLACK model to appear on the cover of American Vogue in 1974 (August issue).  A year later, she became the FIRST BLACK WOMAN to appear on the cover of the French edition of Elle magazine.

Thank you Beverly for breaking barriers!

Well that’s it for today Dolls.
