It's a funny thing when you have lived through a trend (or trends) only to see it resurface years later with a modern twist. Yes, what was once old will always be new again, but when the items at hand were tightly woven into your younger style identity, it's a trip to witness their second ascent.

A Day In The Life Of Local Politician Kirsten Harris-Talley

"I will say at the intersection of being a woman and black, the amount of expectation and exceptionalism—we should not be burning ourselves out. Folks expect that, but we can reject that—we can say no and take care of ourselves better. I am still working on this, in a collective in activism, you don’t have to hold everything. We have been trying to build that in the campaign."
