My Style: Blazing Star Dress By Fort Mose 1738


I was headed on a quick road trip to a historical city Birmingham, Alabama when I thought to ask the girls if they would like to wear African print outfits! I just thought it was fitting since we were going to a place where its predominantly African American people and a place full of rich culture and more.

These trips take months to plan. That’s when I received an email shortly afterwards from a clothing brand asking me if I would like to try one of their garments! With planning our roadtrip, it was a perfect suggestion because the garment tied into what we were doing, perfect timing right?
