tashira, here: florida-born, dc-based attorney, social justice activist and fashion lover. i started politics and fashion in 2011 as a creative outlet to express my love for fashion and interior decor, as well as my ever-evolving socio-political analysis.  as a community organizer, i was stuck feeling like a contradiction among my more narrowly “political” peers because of my love for pretty things, and i spent lots of time feeling torn between two worlds.  ultimately, i decided that my passion for social justice does not exclude my femininity.  while politics and fashion are seemingly disparate concepts, i use this space to explore their intersection, especially as it relates to black women.

i hope you enjoy this space as much as i enjoy creating it.

  1. I have nominated you for a Versatile Blogger award. Therefore, if you choose to accept the Award (or you can just decline this light-hearted nonsense and delete this comment), there are a few things you are required to do:

    – Create a new post on your blog with the Award logo at the top/centre.
    – Thank the one who nominated you.
    – Nominate 12 to 15 other bloggers.
    – Share 7 random facts about yourself.
    – Inform each nominee.
    – Add a thumbnail of the Award logo to your Home Page (optional)

    To be honest with you (personally) I think it’s more about promoting a few other Bloggers than actually winning a prize but I think it’s a good idea and I really do like your Blog and think it would deserve the Award 🙂
