"You can dream something all the way through and what happens with your creativity is it gets blocked by what society says you should do. You always over think yourself. Criticism will bother you but you should be more bothered if there's no criticism. That means you're too safe and nobody cares. They feel invested in a way, like I have a responsibility to them. At the end of the day, I only have responsibility for myself." -Kanye West
I'm thrilled to be in Refinery 29's Month of Style Stars! To even be considered a style star and an influencer in their eyes, means the world. I laughed so hard when they came up with the slang word "slashie" to describe me due to me being a blogger/model/designer. I love that they asked the question "greatest style lesson I've learned". To sum it up I said, if it makes them feel uncomfortable, let them deal with that. It's important that you dress for yourself and focus on what makes you feel good because ultimately, you're the only one you need to impress. Check out my entire Refinery 29 feature!
