Obsessing Over: Stella Jean Takes Me to Africa and Back
Why didn’t anyone tell me about Miss She.Better.Slay Stella Jean?? Where has she been all my stylish life? I need answers.
Listen. I am #stylesick over here! When I discovered Stella’s craft (just the other day) it was as if she knew my life. You know that feeling right? When you just come across something that speaks to your soul? Omg is all I can say! The mastering of mixing of prints and patterns is just ree-diculous! OBSESSED.
Born in Rome, with Caribbean roots, Stella Jean is a fashion designer whose aesthetic vision has the rare ability to transcend entire cultures. I ended up going back in time to see how long I’ve been out of this beautiful loop and I am quite embarrassed. Lol, it’s okay though. Things are revealed at the right time for a reason and oh how thankful I am that I found the light!
I feel like I went to Africa, died twice, and came back to more life! Her “eye” is so criminal to me. Peep a few looks from her most recent presentation for the Ethical Fashion Initiative in Rome for Spring/Summer 2014 below.
Weeeeeerk!! I am so here for these turbans. I’ve truly fallen in love with Stella Jean and you can bet I’m working on getting a front row seat to one of her future presentations!
P.S. Not to steer you away from Stella, but J.Crew is serving a “baby cousin” version of this vibe for their Fall 2013 collection. If you can’t get a hold of these beautiful pieces, check them out this upcoming season. Thank me later.
