Style-Spiration | Solange

I love Solange. ...By now, this is no secret. 
& it seems that I fall more in love with her personality as I get to know her.

After checking out Refinery 29's "Peep Solange Knowles' Inspired Style" interview - I had to share my fav pics and a few Q&A's that stood out to me.

People compare her to her sister all of the time but she doesn't stand for it. As she shouldn't.
She is her own person - with a super tattooed attitude. && I love how comfortable she is with being herself. 
We all love Beyonce - she's beautiful and extremely talented but Solange possesses freedom. She exudes it through her music, her style and speech and that's one thing I admire most about her [The pretty clothes are simply a perk]. 

I aim to be free in all that I do and who I am. & that's one ideal that I wish for everyone.

Refinery 29: Who are your style heroes?
Solo: "My mom in the '70s and '80s! She was a bad bitch. Sex and the City totally jacked her steez on the camels. I have a pic of her on a camel ride in Egypt in the '80s serving the hell out of that desert! Also, Diana Ross, The Fela Kuti Queens, Björk, '70s-era Chaka Khan, Chloë Sevigny, '90s Erykah Badu."

..I actually admire all of these women. I haven't followed Mrs. Knowles too heavy but she def. has style. However, Chaka Khan and Badu  have a way of plucking my heart's strings. Chloe as well. I think my look is a combo of all 3 [with a few more included]. I have a mash-up style. It's impossible for me to stick to one thing without feeling trapped lol. [hence my mohawk - after having a full, 16in. head of weave] ;)

Refinery 29: What's your secret style weapon?
Solo: "Shoes! I'm all about the shoes! I order a ton of them online and play with my entire wardrobe until I find the right shoe. Unfortunately, so many people get it right from the head until the ankles. The shoe is very important. I can't even fuck with you if your shoe game is slacking."

Refinery 29: If your style were a song, what song would it be?
Solo: "For sure Q-Tip's 'Vivrant Thang'."
...perfect song.
