Fashion Is For Every Body: We Did It

Fashion Is For Every Body: We Did It

If you're reading this you probably know that I spend a lot of my time swimming upstream and contradicting stereotypes. I've been called fiesty, firey, bitchy, stubborn, ballsy, badass, leader and queen (among other things).

Black White And Shades Of Grey

The star of this simple outfit is the Margaret Ellis Jewelry beaded necklace. A beautiful string of shapes and shimmer in black, white and grey, this was a holiday gift that I will wear often. You can expect to see more stunning creations designed by McLaine Richardson - who owns Margaret Ellis Jewelry - in the future. I'll bet you thought my "shades of grey" title was a click-bait reference to fetishism.  Well, sort of.
