March is Women’s History Month and today, March 8th, is International Women’s Day. Being a West African Black woman with albinism has been such a complex, often challenging, and ultimately teachable experience. Today I wanted to take some time to really reflect on what it has meant to me to be a woman.
It’s mid-September and I think it’s safe to say summer is over, at least in Toronto. The sky is grey, night is creeping in sooner, and of course the temperature has dropped. The summer months are my favorite time of year but with fall well underway, I think it’s time my wardrobe and I adjust to the new changes.
So what’s the best way to ease the transition? To embrace all the good fall fashion the season has to offer! I’ve compiled a six-look launchpad to get you thinking all things autumn. From layering jackets to cozy knitwear, I’ve got you covered.
The last time I explored Asian fashion was maybe about 10 years ago. My love for anime and J-pop poured over into a fascination with fashion hubs like the Harajuku district in Tokyo. These days it’s places like Seoul, South Korea that have caught my attention for their youthful, modern styles.
How do you define home? Where you live now? Where you grew up? Where your family is? Or something else? Oftentimes how I interpret where home is depends on how I feel, who’s asking, or any other possible variable. My definition of home feels like it’s always changing and lately I’ve been thinking about where exactly that even is for me.
