Hiding in Plain Sight

🌸🎀💖Truth is when I started on my sensational kawaii journey – discovering my personal style and building a community (hi DC Kawaii Style®), I NEVER ever ever in a million years thought I’d be mastering my SELF. Kawaii is the light and J-fashion is my rocket ship. You can’t dream up journeys like this … just gotta lead with your heart and let logic follow.

What My Story Is NOT

🌸🎀💖 There’s far more magic to the Black experience that grows from our trauma. And the world HATES it. They’d rather see trauma porn … So let’s start by pointing out what you won’t get from me. Because sometimes the best way to shape unknown spaces (like Shoppe Gal Gang 😅) is by defining what we don’t want to do or be. So we’ll start there.
