Celebrating Black History Through Fashion - Vintage Love (The Johnson Family)

This set of photos was provided by the lovely Tayo of Tembis Boutique. She starts off by saying, "Of course, being a vintage lover, I love these pics..."

The top two photos show Tayo's mom, Momma Johnson, who's hanging out at a concert on the left and posing at an art gallery on the right. Tayo adds, "So everyone asks how/why I love vintage clothing? Simply put, I get it from my momma." Besides the gorgeous fur and funky afro puffs, I love the emotion her mom is evoking in the first photo. She's clearly having a great time. And that pantsuit on the right?! Lovely.

The bottom two photos show Tayo's grandmother, Granny Johnson. Tayo explains that Granny Johnson "loved wearing hats and pantsuits and showed me how to mix my colors". Don't you just love how she's cocked the hat to the side? She clearly had flair. Go 'head, Granny!

Thanks, Tayo, for submitting such amazing photos.
