Trying to keep up with today's fashion trends can be time consuming and costly to your pockets.

Instead of breaking the bank to buy into the new collections released by fast fashion retailers every couple of weeks, I find most of my clothing at thrifts stores or buy from shops who focus on sustainable fashion.

See below for some of my latest looks!

For years, I avoided wearing bright colored clothing (reds, oranges, yellows, whites, etc.) I preferred darker shades (black, brown, grey, and even purple something) because they drew much less attention to my dark skin. I, along with countless other dark skinned girls, around the world used to get teased for being dark. I can honestly say that it wasn't until I went to college that I wasn't as self-couscous. Looking back, it amazes that it took me that long but hey, everyone's journey is different. To all my melaninated queen out there, you are because inside and out and don't you EVER allow someone to tell you otherwise. ---------------------------------------------- Sweater: Lord and Taylor (Thrifted) from Clothes Mentor Jeans: Forever 21 Photo: Lauren Herwig
