Born and raised in Georgia, I’m pretty much everything you’ve heard girls raised in the South (bka as G.R.I.T.S.) are—old-fashioned and ladylike to a fault, but spunky and sassy enough to keep you on your toes.
I graduated from Spelman College in 2009 and then went on to receive a Master’s Degree from NYU. It was there, in New York City, that my love for the fast paced hustle and bustle of the big city was born. I can’t get enough of the Big Apple! So as much as I love the South…NYC is home!
I’m currently a full-time law student who’s obsessed with all things artistic and spends countless hours daydreaming about world travel and fancy cuisines.
With features on Glamour.com, The Budget Fashionista, Essence.com, Refinery29 and Fashion Bomb Daily, Blake Von D is quickly making a name for itself in the world of fashion. I started blogging in 2009 with the mission of celebrating the traditionally uncelebrated—the quiet girl in the corner, the awkward teen whose features most people don’t “get”, the confident rebel who refuses to conform. As a former foster youth of 10 years, I know all too well what it means to be the underdog. This space is for girls like me. Girls who—no matter how late they showed up to the party—are absolute scene stealers now. Eat your heart out boys!
