Why Do I Keep Buying Things From Designers Who Consistently Ignore Women Who Look Like Me?

Why Do I Keep Buying Things From Designers Who Consistently Ignore Women Who Look Like Me? | Brooklyn By Design | Scoop.it

I wish I could honestly say I'll never buy a designer item until things change, but that would be dishonest... Interestingly, I noticed most of the bags belonged to women of color. So then I proceeded to ask, “Why do we support brands that consistently ignore us?"

Bonnie Sandy's insight:

my 14 year old cousin  asked and how is that  different from teens justifying the use of the "n word?" BTW ther  response was  a direct  comment  by celebrities admitting  shopping  after  similar tratment to what  "oprah reports... I'll admit made me think.

Seriously @AprilBloomfield You cannot  find One Black Chef in Brooklyn #tastetalks | Brooklyn By Design | Scoop.it
Curated by April Bloomfield
Bonnie Sandy's insight:

now I checked the Talent tab http://taste-talks.com/the-talent/... and was so  disappointed... then again this is THEIR  Brooklyn... yes I said it.
one thing Brooklyn has is good food from across the Globe and a serious food culture... we're proud of our cuisine and what we have to offer but this line up... 

 

and yes I am aware that  she may NOT have put this together but if you are adding your name to something, ensure it is authentic and at least PC .... Frankly I'm tired of the White washing of our Multi cultural Borough.

Now THIS Is [NOT] What Sexy Dressing Should Look Like- bad fit is never sexy

Now THIS Is [NOT] What Sexy Dressing Should Look Like- bad fit is never sexy | Brooklyn By Design | Scoop.it
Dressing sexy can be a tricky task. Does it have to be tight with a low neckline?
Bonnie Sandy's insight:

That neckline is poorly executed and the lines around the hip is not a "drape"  This is what happens when editors without fashion training write a style column ... bad FIT is NEVER  sexy!
