Celebrity style crush: Kahlana Barfield

Meet the stylish Kahlana. I discovered her on Instagram when her wedding photos went somewhat viral. As the Beauty Editor at large of InStyle Magazine, I could only imagine how much the pressure was on for her to look her best on her wedding day but listen, this girl slays on the daily, OK? I can’t quite think of one category that her style fits into and I guess that’s why I totally adore her fashion sense. Simplistic sometimes. Edgy some days. But effortlessly classy at all times. She’s so fabulous!

“Celebrity style crush: Janelle Monáe”

“When I started my musical career I was a maid, I used to clean houses. [My] mother was a proud janitor, my step-father who raised me like his very own worked at the post office and my father was a trash man. They all wore uniforms. And that’s why I stand here today in my black and white and I wear my uniform to honor them.” – Monáe
