Hope you all are doing lovely and feeling great! Today for the Dark-skinned Girls Rock series we're featuring Raven from Swank Stylista.
Everybody meet Raven! She's at 28 year old Wardrobe Stylist from Los Angeles, CA.
Describe yourself in 3 words. Fierce. Fun. Fashionable.
Continue reading below.
Explain your personal style. I would say trendy with touches of vintage. I wear what I like not because someone else says to.
Who are your style icons? Love June Ambrose and Annabelle of Viva Luxury.
Have you ever struggled with self-identity issues because of your complexion? If so what are some things you did to accept yourself for who you are and love yourself?
Yes, watching the Dark Girls documentary definitely had me in tears. I don’t know when things started to change. I started to love me for me and love the things I used to dislike. Things also started to change when I realized I could wear any color on the color wheel and look great.
Do you have any advice for other dark-skinned women that are struggling with accepting themselves because of the color of their skin?
Don’t hate yourself because of someone else’s ignorance.
What do you like most about being dark-skinned?
Being able to wear any color I want. I’ve never been sunburned, superficial but true.
