The Queen said it best: "Always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper."
I'm a firm believer in #BlackGirlMagic, so when my friend Meagan stumbled upon a lace dress gem while we were feeding our thrifting addiction - I knew this shoot had to become a reality.
While this isn't the first time my friends and I have impersonated the Knowles clan - helloooo, the Solange wedding pictures - but this shoot gave me the same feeling I get every time I use my "black fist emoji."
View the gallery below, all items came from the thrift store (naturally), hair and makeup was model's choice.
Let me tell you about when you know something is meant to be. I bought every single piece of clothing for this photoshoot BEFORE I asked anyone to model for me, and when I tell you EVERY SINGLE ITEM FIT *insert praise hands* thats what you call purpose!
Ladies (and gents), continue to be in formation everyday in big and small ways. Now adjust your crown in the mirror.
I'm a procrastinator by nature, so I really have to thank everyone who took part in this shoot with only 48 hours notice and still made it this dope:
- James Graves, for being the amazing photographer you are.
- Valerie, Bri, & Charlie, for always being in formation.
- Vic, for your on-set vision and soundtrack of endless Beyonce.
