*Insert low self-confidence here* Even though I wanted them so bad, I never really thought that I could pull them off. Simply because I was afraid of society's standards of what fits who and that I wasn't "black enough." Another story for another day.

My style inspiration: Lisa Bonet
I'm so obsessed with her!
