Celebrating Black History Through Fashion - Retro Class Photo

This photo was submitted by personal trainer, Renisha James, of Renewed Fitness. It features her mom, Renee, and dates back to the early 1970s.

I absolutely love the simplicity of her style.  She's a classic beauty.  The neckerchief adds the right amount of color and is the perfect accent to that flawlessly coiffed afro!  She surely would've given my mom a run for her money.

Here's what Renisha had to say about her mom's photo:

"As you can see, she was a total fox back in the day and this is my most favorite picture of her, EVER! Her afro says it all and she always tells me that it took her at least 20 minutes in the morning each day to get it "just right". I really like that she chose a bright pink scarf to accessorize her look. A little mascara on her lashes and some pink lipstick and she was ready for her pictures. Everytime I look at this pic, I'm proud to call her my mom. She was a senior in high school, so she was about 18 years old, which would make this around 1972. "

Thanks for the photo, Renisha!

I absolutely love profile pictures. I too love the simplicity of her style; from her make-up to her pink neck scarf.

Renisha your mom is gorg!
