Traditional #waistbeads by #ColoredGirlsHustle are inspired by our founder’s @tajalindley trip to Ghana in 2008 where she worked with a grassroots women & girls NGO. During her time there she learned about the ancient adornment practice of waist beads: a shared knowledge with a lover, a private secret, a shaping tool for waists & hips, adornment infused with power & affirmation.

Came across this sweatshirt on FOC and absolutely had to share it!
I hate hearing “You’re so pretty for a big girl.” Is that even a compliment? So, what you’re saying is that my beauty is conditional? Anyway, I love that this sweatshirt is calling people out on that “compliment.” Any chance the sweatshirts have a big FU on the back? LOL
Also, how good do the models look? #flawless They’re so pretty. period.
