PHOTOGRAPHIC HOMAGE: CHARLES "TEENIE" HARRIS.



Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native Charles "Teenie" Harris, chronicled much of the urban and rural black existence in his state.  His images now stand as beacons of historic value and lend a rich insight to African American lifestyles of the early to mid 20th century in that region. 


Carnegie Museum of Art has ongoing exhibit of Harris' photographs in a show titled, "Teenie Harris: Focus on Hair."  The show intertwines images and storytelling to convey the black aesthetic at that time and illustrate the integral role that Harris' images play for the present generation.

If you're in Pittsburgh check out the show.

THE HOTTEST MOST BORING

Really excited about this year's swimsuit options.  This is the first year that truly stylish and trendy full one pieces have been made available and, although I rarely wear a one piece, I'm delighted to see how accessible they are.  Not just faux one pieces, that consist of shreds of fabric, or tankinis (why), these suits are so legit I might even rock one to the next child's birthday I reluctantly attend. 


SO THAT EVERYONE CAN STOP IT WITH THE MICHAEL KORS WATCHES.
