Jane Girl of the Month


YOU! The Black Woman




While searching for Vintage images to help promote my little Trunk Sale, I stumbled upon a DOPE Google image, that led to an even FLYer photostream located on Flickr.com.Posted by Omega418 on Flickr.com was an enormous collection of the most memorable  and inspirational images of fashionable black women, men  and Follies sweetheart, Josephine Baker. I was not only in Hog Heaven but instantly recieved an array of ideas and mental pictures for Fall 09'. These images reminded me of where we came from, how far we have to go and what needs to be RE-LIVED.

These Fly sistah's were not only the heartbeat of Brownin Flyness, but the inspirational Renaissance to their Harlemnite male counterparts and  the Butter to anyone's popcorn--Jazz & liquor included---Take a trip down memory lane, revisit the sintched waist and Victory curls that have become the Jane's M.O.
