Happy Halloween!

Jody Watley Classic Image and Thought of The Day.

Mirrors.

Don’t ever dim your shine to make others feel better. Shine on from the inside -out. Like my Dad always said as well be a person of substance and always value yourself. ✨

Here’s a #TBT 2008 VOGUE Italia the historic “The Black Issue”

Being included in this issue is another benchmark in my ongoing solo career that I’m very proud of because of the music artistry – a childhood dream that became a reality.

Work hard – keep shining.

Jody Watley Timeless Style.

Style Signatures. Just as much as I still love a good edgy moto/biker jacket .. I still love a good tailored suit /jacket like the one I’m wearing here back in 91.

Always find your own personal style-it’s a way of saying a bit about who you are without having to speak.
