Sistahs Are ALWAYS In Fashion

Some designers and elements of society may not think so, but we beg to differ on that point. As far as many of our men and Black women are concerned, sisters who grace the catwalks, the red carpets, various stages, the ballroom floors and who just strut down any street like they own it, sistahs are always in fashion.

Though I shows some love in a photo post for all sisters.

Hey, where's Iman and Faye Wattleton? Those two are beyond mere fashion and into 'embodying/living chic.' Fashion is what you buy, chic is what flows in your veins.

Faye Wattleton is one of my sheroes. Perhaps when I decide to do this again I post pictures of other fashionable sistahs.

I also slid pictures of transwomen in there as well.
