Kicking off this #Halloween season with my first look, paying homage to a LEGEND. Before Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and even Madonna, there was the ever so iconic, #GraceJones. The true Jamaican QUEEN of sex, drugs, and rock’n roll!
#tbt to my #GraceJones era as an artsy high school student @ @unisny. My mom chastised me about the look then and when I sent her the photo today, she said that she loves the look. So for those of you who are parents of teenagers who don’t look the part you want them to have now, consider the fact that one day you may understand their self-expression and please be comforted that they may actually turn out okay, despite (and maybe because of) their ability to express who they are at this point in their lives. For teens whose parents are challenging such self expression, remind them that self-expression is a form of creativity that has increasingly become a prerequisite to employment in the more innovative companies and organizations looking for new talent today! #bewhoyouare#expressyourself#pushboundaries#createyourworld#dontbeapologetic#justbeyou
