Today marks the first day of Black History Month and there’s no better way to kick it off than with a statement piece. Statement pieces anyone? I live for statement pieces! You all can use some statement makers in your wardrobe. While you are making additions to your closet, also take the time to recognize some of our Black heroes. If you are not knowledgeable, do some research and find out the great differences they’ve made that effects all of our lives today. Not sure where to start? Visiting your local African American Museum could definitely help! There’s so much to uncover and learn from the past. When you know how things began and/or how we get to where we are today, it’s very inspiring. Feel free to fill your brains!
What am I wearing?
My look today packs a powerful message through this vintage custom jacket. The statement on the back of my jacket proudly says “Black Magic.” This jacket can be tied and buttoned in the front. It was designed by Houston Designer Brittany Tatum, CEO of Clothing Brand namely Pistol Whipped Apparel. She is most recognized for her customized jackets with powerful messages on the backside, but she has more goodies! Shop Pistol Whipped Apparel for more custom designs.
Hope you are loving this jacket as much as I do. It’s a great vintage piece to have in your closet. We all love pieces that packs such powerful messages, yet we don’t try to be the message. It doesn’t matter what race you are, let’s all be the change and pass it on to the next generation. Let’s all love one another and learn about each other’s past and cultures. Happy Black History Month! Let’s be the change.
