Bow Down to Queen Kyemah

So.... I was gonna post a blog today about an OOTD, when I was slapped upside the head about something I was so much more exciting to discuss with you guys. Whenever I learn about a kick ass chica, I literally sit there all day wanting to talk about her. And this lil lady is too good to wait until WCW, dammit. 

I'm talking about Miss Kyemah McEntyre, that seriously sick young woman who has been all over IG killin the game with her dropdead stunning self made prom dress. I dig that she takes inspiration from cultures around the world. "You have to understand who you are because if you leave that space open, you leave your identity in the hands of society. Don't let anyone define you." she wrote.

She also wrote "This is for always being labeled as, 'ugly' or 'angry'. Thank God, stereotypes are just opinions," she wrote in another post.

This bad ass is attending the Parsons School of Design in the fall. And I'm super-doop excited to see the first collection.

Bow down to Queen Kyemah, (yes...homegirl took the crown for Prom Queen that night.)

So then you know Mai inspired ass just had to go and dig up old pictures just to recall when I made Mai prom dress, too. Now clearly God didn't give me anything close to the design talent Miss Kyemah got, but hey, watch it. He DID give me balls to attempt it, rock it, and wear it with pantyhose and open toed sandals. Go me.

*Yes, I could have made it a floor length blk/white gown, but this fabric was pricey at Joann's, ok?
