In Living Color 

As we get back to the business of being “Back Outside”, there are so many events popping up all over Philadelphia. I was so delighted when I was invited out to an evening of comedy and line dancing. Laughter is good for the soul because it brings people together, releases tension in the environment and relaxes your nerves making it both beneficial for emotional as well as physical well-being. Line dancing is part of our culture because it’s rooted in blackness — it’s rooted in the African American experience. Sure, comedians are goofballs but there were some style kings and queens projecting authenticity in their styled-fits not just on the stage. Shout-out to the host and his lady who slayed in her red plaid boots!  Beneath the veneer of these Philadelphia-based influencers lies a genuine desire to stunt. I truly believe with confidence anyone can wear anything and look hot as hell. Styled-out till next time.
