Tarana and I first "met" on Instagram where we both admired each other's fashion sense. She was so very complimentary of my style and I loved how she added a certain sense of edge and funkiness to her classic style. I found myself saying "Yes, She Slays" every time she posted a new style picture. Then we connected over Facebook, realizing we had a couple of mutual friends in common, and we got to know each other a little better over posts about current events, pop culture and all around tom foolery! We decided to meet up for a photo shoot on her next trip to Atlanta and well, the rest is fashion history. Ha!
If you are a fan, follower or friend of my blog and social media accounts, then you already know how much I love a black and white ensemble. It's arguably the most classic, and timeless pairing in all thing fashion. So when Tarana and I were trying to decide what to wear in our first collaboration, the striking combination of ebony and ivory seemed perfect! Unbeknownst to the other, we both added a pop of color to our ensembles with our shoes.
I love these photos because they truly capture all the fun we had together. Please stop by SheSlays.com for details on Tarana's look. My outfit details are below. As always, I hope you enjoyed this post and our looks just as much as we enjoyed our time together.
Until next time .....
