It seemed only appropriate to have our first blog post featuring the one and only Queen…AALIYAH.
We can’t believe that it has been 12 years to the day that her precious life was cut tragically short at only 22 years old. Aaliyah is a huge influence on our store as a whole. She embodies everything we aim to represent…strength, uniqueness, strong sense of self, and of course style for days. No matter how famous she got, she was able to stay mysterious, leaving everyone wanting to know more. She was sweet yet street at the same time. She was the ultimate trendsetter with her signature look of baggy pants, midruff tops, oversized jackets, bandanas. She was able to have sex appeal while dressed as a tomboy…a feat not many can do. Besides her untouchable style she had one of the most unique voices out there. Even though it has been 12 years since her passing, her style is being emulated all over the world to this day. It seems as though her legacy and presence is only getting stronger with each day she has been gone. She is definitely one of our muses in day to day life as well as our aesthetic There is not a day that goes by that we are not bumping Aaliyah in the office while working. The world lost an angel 12 years ago but she will never be truly gone. BabyGirl is a true QUEEN.
“I STAY TRUE TO MYSELF AND I AM ALWAYS PUSHING MYSELF TO BE AWARE OF THAT AND BE ORIGINAL”-AALIYAH
