One Small Step

"Beauty is universal," she says. "These doors have to open."-Joan Smalls

That quote was from the upcoming January 2014 issue of Elle Magazine with my favorite model Joan Smalls gracing the cover. The combination is great and a positive step towards more diversity in this crazy fashion industry. 

Calling it "the return of the supermodel," Elle has ditched the familiar irrelevant movie/TV star cover girl for its January issue to feature Smalls. Joan ranks as the No. 1 model in the world, according to

"People hide behind the word aesthetic," she tells Elle. "They say, 'Well, it's just that designer's aesthetic.' But when you see 18 seasons in a row and not one single model outside a certain skin color…? There are people in the industry who are advocates, who support diversity. And there are people who do not. I don't get it."

Amen sister!

I do apologize for the lack of posts, there were a lot of things going on some good, some bad, all busy (I'm not sugar coating anything like other bloggers do, and frankly I just needed time for myself). I am glad to have a break in a few days by heading to Vegas with a few of my close friend's.  I'll be refreshed and ready to take on the rest of 2013!

I hope all of you are well!
