We’re all trying to eat, we want that steak with the lobster. Well some of us, the vegan steak and lobster, lol.
It’s time to support each other. Forget all that fake stuff and gossip. It’s time to build up our own communities. Time to build generational worth. I know there are many Black and Brown individuals that you know have their own business or even multiple businesses. Do you support them? Do you choose them over their more common counterparts? Do you recommend them to others? Do you leave reviews?
If not, the time is now. Support each other, build each other and celebrate each other. Especially with the racial outpouring of disrespect with the designers such as Gucci, Moncler and Burberry. If we don’t support one another, who will?
Don’t need Gucci on my back to be Gucci…
In Gucci’s upcoming Spring line, they will be introducing a similar bag to the one I have in these photos. You know what though, I’m Gucci without Gucci and I would rather support a small business such as Rita Lane Vintage than Gucci any day.

Shop the Look:
Please click on the images below to shop my outfit. My grandmother made my coat over 60 years ago!! Isn’t it a gem!? My pants are from International Playground and my shirt is from Target. Unfortunately, they are both sold out. Of course though, I have included some very close alternatives. My bag is a vintage lunchbox that I wear as a purse.
My shoes are a few years old. I have found some new and improved ones though!
