What up y'all? I'm coming to you all from the confines of my room, surrounded by Kleenex. Not gonna lie, it is taking all my energy to get this blog post up, so we gonna make this one short and sweet. (I'm a huge baby when I'm sick. FYI)
DO NOT TOUCH
Do not touch. Not only is this relevant to those in my life who want to make sure they don't catch my cold, it's also the name of fashion designer Charles Smith II collection benefiting scholarships for 3 DISD students. You can read my interview for the Dallas Observer with Smith about the collection here.
I love opportunity to strut some sweet threads while supporting a worthwhile cause in the arts. Smith's streetstyle aesthetic along with mentality of giving back to the community really speak to my soul. I def recommend everyone keep an eye on him. More big things to come from him I'm sure!
DO NOT TOUCH
My rights or that of my community and other marginalized ppl Donald Trump! I think spending my time sick in bed scrolling throw social media, reading all upsetting news, is not helping me getting better. I can't wait to get out of bed and start mobilizing. It can be hard not to get depressed with the current state of our country. Do not despair! Get active. Check this out for ideas.
Hey! I'm already feeling better! Who knew blogging helped with a cold? :P
