The Studio Museum of Harlem held the annual fundraising luncheon at the Mandarin Oriental last week in NYC. Essence.com did a street style photo gallery of “Black Ladies Who Lunch” and I absolutely ADORED it!!! There were a few comments from women who seemed to be offended by “black” being inserted in the title, but I happen to find that ridiculous. Every week there’s new coverage on the “doom” of the single, educated, beautiful, black woman and I think we’re all a bit over that because it’s poison for the mind. Flipping through all 68 images made me feel like the girls and I have so much to look forward to! I sent it to the gals for a little weekend inspiration.
Here’s a sample from Julie Skarratt photography:

Ladies – enjoy and picture yourself. Fellas – we age so gracefully, don’t we?
