Hello all of my Loverlies! Well, once again we are in a historical state of mind with Black History Month. I usually don't have a specific idea of what to post during this holiday month. However this year, I'm on the lookout for 60's and 70's style and those of us who rocked it both then and now.

My first segment in the Past and Present series features the naturalistas (those wearing lustrous locs and fierce fros)! So sit back and check out these natural beauties as you imagine that you're listening to the funky beats of Chaka Khan and Rufus or Sly and the Family Stone! Power to the People!


THEN


Singer, actress and model, Marsha Hunt, circa 1960's

NOW

Jazz musician extraordinaire, Esperanza Spalding


How scary is this resemblance! Majestically magnificent!
