WYV: How do you describe your style?
Stacey: I pride myself in having an alternative and somewhat eclectic style. Black is my favorite color and I love collars and fetish-inspired fashion. However, I also like dressing up and exploring fashion from the ’70s and ’90s, and pinup couture as well.
WYV: What inspired your blog? Do you have a particular mission?
Stacey: My blog was created as an outlet for my depression. I wanted to give myself purpose while encouraging fat black individuals out there to be bold in their clothing, makeup and hair choices. I hadn’t realized how much representation mattered until I myself was influenced by bloggers of color, and in turn started impacting fellow alt black people and people of color in their self-discovery journeys.
WYV: Who are your three StyleCrushes?
Stacey: Three StyleCrushes of mine are model and blogger Isabel Hendrix; Yeha Leung, owner and designer of Creepyyeha; and the co-owner of Witch World Wide, Alyssa Thralls (AKA Alyssa Panda Eyes).
WYV: Where do you shop?
Stacey: I shop exclusively online, mostly on Etsy, Asos, Killstar, Disturbia, Modcloth and indie shops such as Chubby Cartwheels and Shop Tunnel Vision.
WYV: How do you wear your voice?
Stacy: After years of being told that I was too dark or too fat, or that being alternative was only for white people, I make sure to wear as loud a voice as possible. I blog about fashion, and online people know me for having a loud blue and black afro. It definitely goes beyond all of that. Most of my life I thought that I was part of the background, that I couldn’t stand out. I have grown to become a better version of myself than I ever thought possible. I make sure to cover all the noise and negative vibes I get from people who don’t want to acknowledge or accept me. After all, I am the one living in this skin and happy doing it.
