I can't recall if Tenicka B. has been mentioned here, but she now has a YouTube channel.


Good content but not really my style.

How she is consistent with the youtube. Money is in it. Especially now. Brands are looking to reach ppl by any means necessary in 2021 especially fashion brands.

A change is coming


Have you read what they are actually doing

This seems stupid to me

Color of change is a sjw organization that focuses on creating campaigns to highlight injustices. Anyone can create a campaign on their platform that's one and some of the campaigns are just woke twitter hashtag polices. This is a far left organization that believe in defunding the police.

Issa no for me

If you look at the change fashion page its literally nonsense.

Defunding the police has nothing to do with the fashion industry. And the fashion industry has nothing to do with communities. Sorry to tell yall but the fashion community isnt the hood. It's Milan , soho and London.

They want the fashion community to only partner with brands that support social justice causes. They want tokenism not equality.

The only thing I can actually agree with is there needs to be a overhaul of how the makeup artist and hairstylist in the industry. They need to know how to do black hair and makeup.

That's all I agree with

Everything else is far left and hand holding initiatives to be handed out to someone because of their skin color.

Like I have been saying for years now. Lol

Most fashion magazines are led by bw and bw in multiple positions. Most media platforms are held at top positions are held by black women. Most got there cuz they worked hard not because of tokenism and handouts.

All this woke ish is backwards n borderline segregation and everyone knows it but is a afraid to say anything.

We all want equality but to get equality by forcing ppl to hire anyone black is backwards.

I've seen her on IG here and there, but I was surprised to see that she had started a YT channel. It seems like she's trying to get comfortable with being in front of the camera. I think that her niche will probably be travel more so than fashion once things start to improve.

It takes a while to feel comfortable

I dont even do IG stories like that

she isnt my type of influencer but I can see her having a crowd

Tamu was just on the most recent episode of The Naked Beauty Podcast. She didn't talk about fashion too much but it was an interesting listen

How do y’all feel about Zara? Personally it’s my bad habit for on trend fast fashion but I don’t like their return policy and the fact that they don’t have any leniency if you lose your receipt knowing how their things sell out. Like everyone’s doing the Zara hauls but besides making money from views ;those people don’t do gifting , collaborations nothing but everyone seem to be doing them or did I miss something? Cause if I did a haul with them I’m not tagging a damn thing.

This conversation is so important, especially for the fashion enthusiasts. Sisters, I implore you to save your coins. Forget about the glitz and glamour, pomp and circumstance and instead save for your future. I love fashion and beautiful garments/accessories, but I love having my money where I can see it (investment accounts, robust savings account) and financially secure future more. The 60 year old version of yourself will barely remember the trendy pieces you bought in your youth, but will feel the impact of the money you saved and invested during those years. Find a balance.
Gonna drop this link in here. I figured some fonts may want to contribute.

What life lessons should young professionals take from the Andre Leon Talley fiasco?

Does Amanda ever stop name dropping? Every story is about some celebrity or public figure who was enamoured by her or gave her advice. It’s not that it’s impossible it’s just cringe..then she tries to play and act like she’s not infatuated w/ famous ppl.

I find her insufferable and don’t think there’s anything unique or avant- garde about her style. The braggadocios personality sends me over the edge.

I used to enjoy some of her looks and even felt she was unfairly attacked at the beginning of this thread but her desperation to be a black Carrie Bradshaw is weird.

It’s also interesting that for so long she tried to maintain being this mysterious individual who was so over conglomerates and their impact on fashion to now playing catch up with influencers and being very open to said destructors of fashion.

Seems like she’s waiting for a significant role in fashion to fall in her lap and the question is based on what? IG pics?

Hopefully she finds her Mr Big and gets to give all those “moments” during the school run.

I called Amanda number Months ago.

I know girls like Amanda. Lol

Girls like Amanda come and go

Have access to showrooms , so called "stylist" to the stars yet no solid resume.

She gets validation from the ppl who follow her and go crazy for her style.

In reality she is all talk and no action.

Have all this fashion knowledge yet have nothing to show for it

Make it make sense

Where is the website or platform. I don't care she is name dropping cuz that's just apart of the industry itself. She has nothing going on for her other than posting rants and her fashion breakdowns in her ig story.

Alot of these fashion girls don't really have anything going on. Cuz they never had a plan and turn around and blame everybody but themselves when they lose clout.

I just realized Skylar marshai doesnt even have up to 100k followers which is crazy to me bc her content goes tf AWFFFF. This is reminding me of that thread on here about influence pay gaps and black girls not having reach.

I really thought she would've been closer to 200k the way she does her content.

It's overly curated.

She’s almost there..
Give her time
Followers number to me doesn’t count much.
It takes one click to follow and most people have the option of muting. her engagement is through the roof. People sharing her content, leaving comments.. that requires more effort. She has that.

I don’t care for her content - it’s too curated for my taste but she has an amazing feed! She clearly works really hard at it and has an amazing eye. So that’s very surprising

Lol I agree, even her real-life stories content is super curated. it's a little too cookie-cutter, black content girl for me but it works, we need black girls like that. I love to see her getting opportunities and she's very creative. Just wish there was more space for the round-the-way black girls.

Yikes lol yeah these girls need to ask themselves if IG deleted tomorrow, what would they do? where's their platform to fall back on? She gets haughty when people ask her for reviews of a collection saying she needs to be paid but she hasn't even set herself up for that. I wanna see some actual projects from her. She has the connections and resources to pull it off too.

I totally get that and feel the same way but I still think a non-black person with her feed would be at least at 300k by now.

However, I will say her IG stories have gotten super salesy now. i get ads filling up the feed but stories too?!! too much
