Can you tell that I love her? @stacylondonreal. Our friend wrote a book and we are kinds of excited about it! @guidedbybiet #DontJustSitThere
What’s my cheeky sweatshirt about, you wonder? USED CLOTHES, friends! I’m so thrilled to partner with @thredUP X my pal @OliviaWilde — and her company @ConsciousCo — to share their #ChooseUsed Collection. Check it out at thredup.com/chooseused (link in my bio).
•
thredUP X Olivia Wilde and @ConsciousCo re-designed thousands of pieces of used clothes (like my sweatshirt 💁🏻‍♀️) that are cool, retro and all celebrate fashion reuse. The whole goal is to combat the fashion waste crisis. Did you guys know it’s a crisis!? Fashion is the second most polluting industry after oil!! This is not okay. Keeping clothes in use longer makes a difference. So does buying vintage, having clothing swaps with friends, or borrowing from a pal instead of buying new stuff for special occasions.
•
However you choose to make an impact in your own life, you can start today, and help combat fashion waste by reposting this (make sure to tag @thredUP and #ChooseUsed)!! @thredup will donate $1 to the Circular Fashion Fund when you do! #ReduceReuseRecycle #ChooseUsed ♻️🌱💚
Merci pour tout @pompiers_paris ♥️💔 Grateful for all of the first responders who risk it all for us, anytime and any place. #NotreDame

Victor Hugo wrote of the significance of Norte Dame, in “The Hunchback.” His musings feel incredibly appropriate now, as we all try to form the words that explain why this destruction cuts us to the core... This  Cathedral is a symbol of resilience. History. And humanity. I’ll leave it to him ...

“Great edifices, like great mountains, are the work of centuries. Art often undergoes a transformation while they are pending, pendent opera interrupta; they proceed quietly in accordance with the transformed art. The new art takes the monument where it finds it, incrusts itself there, assimilates it to itself, develops it according to its fancy, and finishes it if it can. The thing is accomplished without trouble, without effort, without reaction,— following a natural and tranquil law. It is a graft which shoots up, a sap which circulates, a vegetation which starts forth anew. Certainly there is matter here for many large volumes, and often the universal history of humanity in the successive engrafting of many arts at many levels, upon the same monument. The man, the artist, the individual, is effaced in these great masses, which lack the name of their author; human intelligence is there summed up and totalized.”

Had no trace of the Sunday Scaries last weekend, thanks to @samantha_marquart 🌴🌞🌊 #girlsgetaway #sistersister
#DetroitGrows ♥️🌱♥️ Thank you to @fashtechforum for having us, giving us a space to speak about @detroitblows and our community investment + philanthropic arm, representation, the future of beauty, and collaboration.

Thank you to our friends @linguafrancanyc for these incredible sweaters. To my friends @worldarmarium for encouraging consumers to think differently about fashion, waste, and “ownership.” And last but not least, thank you my dearest @questlove for feeding us so well! @chefkwameonwuachi you are a gift. Thank you for not one, not two, but three bowls of rice. You’re a real one! #FTF2019 #DetroitBlows #FemaleFounders #AllOfUs
#AboutLastNight ♥️ with The @hollywoodreporter, honoring powerhouses in media and the sacred nature of journalism. Telling the truth to the world, investigative reporting, and fighting for transparency is of paramount importance. Thank you to all the reporters around the world fighting to get the truth out there, and reminding us of both who we are, and who we can be. #Journalism #Media #THR
It’s been a week. Still not quite sure what to say, but I needed a break from the internet. Needed to be quiet and hold my heart in the tender comfort of best friends and community. We lost our sweet Penny girl last Thursday. We knew it was coming, but we didn’t know how quickly the day would be upon us. For the last seven days we’ve cried, laughed, and missed her with an ache that is hard to describe. We’ve traded photos, and been so supported by our loved ones.
•
I loved Penny from the moment I met her. She was a special, wild, rambunctious little thing. Tiny. Sweet. With giant ears, always at attention. Penny brought me my best friend. @jsmizzie met Penny before she even met me, while I was gone for the weekend and friends in NC were watching my little copper penny puppy, and Patch. The first thing Jenny ever said to me was “I love your dogs!” It’s still an inside joke in our house, to this day. Penny was our mascot. Our welcome wagon. And our guard dog. She helped me, Jenny, @vanessamagos, and Patch survive Griffin’s puppyhood, which was insufferable at times. And even into their adulthood, Penny cleaned his ears every evening around sundown. They were inseparable. Always touching. Always sleeping in a tangled pretzel. Seeing him look for her in the house makes my heart catch in my throat. He misses her too. We all do. Sure, Penny was mine, but she was truly ours. She was family.

Adopt a dog if you’ve ever wanted to. It’ll change your life. It’ll blow your heart open and teach you how big it is. It’ll fill your house with laughter and love. And leave you better than you were before. Sending big love to all the rescuers out there. There’s never enough time, but there’s more than enough love to go around. ♥️ #AdoptDontShop #PennyliciousThePup @pitbullsofinstagram 🐾

Thanks for the delicious meals and tasty drinks while we worked on new projects for @detroitblows this past weekend. Our love of our neighborhood runs deep. @nialauryn #DetroitBlows 🌱 #DetroitGrows
The tragic death of @nipseyhussle on Sunday is really weighing heavy on my heart, y’all. What this man meant to LA... We weren’t from the same neighborhood. We never met — though as a fan of his music and his truly entrepreneurial mind I hoped we would one day — but I considered him a role model. A leader. An example.
•
His savvy began with his music, in limited mixtapes. It spanned to his investment strategy, pouring uncommon dollars into Crenshaw, anchoring his #Marathon clothing store there, opening #Vector90, a coworking space for local entrepreneurs — with a STEM program to create access to tech based jobs and training — and with bold plans to build new residential projects. Rather than take his money outside of his neighborhood, he was keeping it local, and lifting up his community. He was the kind of man who showed up at the local elementary school with new shoes for every kid. He was also passionate about holistic health, and in the midst of making a documentary about Dr. Sebi’s fight against AIDS. He loved his girl, @laurenlondon, and his kids.
•
In our time building @detroitblows, @nialauryn and I have often referenced Nipsey’s work as inspiration for our own. He reminded us to double down on fighting for Detroit and to encourage investment in other Opportunity Zones that need visionary support. Like I said... we never met, but he was a role model.
•
My heart hurts for his loved ones and his community. What a loss. Rest In Power, king. All my prayers for Lauren. 🖤
You can stand under my umbrella-ella-ella ☂️ But for real jump under here, G. It’s snowing! #AboutLastNight #Detroit @detroitblows

25% of all of our retail profits go to #DetroitGrows, so thanks in advance for supporting our commitment to our community 🌱 ✨♥️✨🌱
One of the things that’s rarely mentioned in this current world of “internet success,” and “does-everyone-have-it-figured-out-but-me” self-doubt, is the work behind the work. We have some big things happening @detroitblows. This is a year-and-a-half into our doors being open to the public, and at least that long prior to opening in business development and planning, raising funds, and so many spreadsheets my head still spins when I think about them.
•
But here we are, loving it still. This feels like passion and purpose. This mission of #equitable #access and #representation for all women lives in our bones. Our  commitment to reinvesting funds in women in our community and #femaleentrepreneurs, to start pushing for more #equity in #finance and women’s access to it, has not waned. It’s grown. #Detroit, quite literally, grows.
•
But ... I just want to be #transparent that this has required long nights, tough decisions, and personal sacrifice. That it isn’t glamorous. It’s not a party. But it’s everything to us.
•
So to anyone out there building their dream, fighting for their community, trying to raise capital, or having doors slammed in your face ... we see you. We believe in you. Don’t give up. It won’t be easy. It hasn’t been for us either. And when you have a day like this one, and you wrap work on a Saturday night at 10:39pm and had to blow off your pal’s dinner and a few other commitments, just know that more cheers-over-dinner are coming. It’s all worth it. Your vision matters. And even though currently women get small percentages of available financing — and #WOC even less — you have some far-off sisters out here fighting alongside you for parity and representation. You are loved.
•
And if you’re ever in Detroit, you can come into our salon for a blowout and a hug and high five, anytime. We believe in going #BeyondTheBlowout. We believe in you. We are #DetroitBlows.
