  1. Finally… an Ebony Magazine post

    June 30, 2014 by 16stone

    It was brought to my attention the other day that in all my years in posting on this blog , I’ve never posted Ebony magazines. Admittedly, I’ve always admired Ebony. It was a staple magazine in my household growing up. I’m even featured in some ads in past issues. My mother was friends with Mr. Johnson, the publisher of a lot of these wonderful negro magazines. Every year he would give us free tickets to the world famous Ebony Fashion Fair. In honor of these memories, below are my favorite Ebony covers.

  10. 16 Stone Vintage: 1975 PROM

    March 20, 2014 by 16stone

    Hello everyone, I am sorry to leave you for more than a month without a post. I was busy putting together the most fun party I’ve ever had in my life! My birthday celebration this year had a vintage theme of the 1975 prom. I had so much fun dressing friends and family for this party. I was running out to stores right down to the last hour before the party. Below is footage from this very special night that took place at Tip Top Bar and Grill on March 8th. A very special thank you to Tip Top, DJ Tara, Richard LouissaintJason Minnis, and everyone who attended. Enjoy!
