if at first you don’t succeed







dust yourself off & try again

quilted faux leather bomber : forever 21
tie dye Aaliyah tee : an unmarked sample I picked up when I worked at buffalo exchange
pleated faux leather mini : forever 21 via buffalo exchange
faux thigh high tights : urban outfitters
cut out ankle boots : Jeffery Campbell
teal knit beanie : thrifted vintage
hematite necklace : borrowed from my mum
teal sunnies : buffalo exchange

When Aaliyah died, I cried for days. It was a very big deal for me. I still find myself wondering what she would have accomplished if she had lived. She already had grown so much as an artist by the time she died, and she was still so young.

I’m not going to watch lifetime’s unauthorized butchering of her story. I don’t watch much television in the first place, and choosing to watch that mess seems a lot like volunteering to kill perfectly healthy brain cells.

So in protest I’m wearing this outfit & blasting her albums all day.

Rest in peace, baby girl.
