Introducing Maxine

Maxine Henry, mother of 4 and wife to the incomparable Morris Henry, was a women of flair and style. My cousins would tell me stories of how my grandfather would drive her across the country from Springfield Ohio to California so that she could shop the Neiman Marcus catalog in person. Can you say FABULOUS?!?!

She instilled excellence in all her children and was proud of their accomplishments. Always a beacon of Biblical teaching, Maxine was known to share the Gospel with anyone who graced her presence. With conviction and vigor she encouraged people to have faith in God, discover their purpose and to embrace change in their lives. 

Born to a bi-racial parent, hailing from Guntersville, AL, she was the epitome of strength, perseverance and zeal. Her experiences made her tough, but her faith enabled her to touch the hearts and minds of many.

Her style and fashion artifacts are unmatched. From mink stoles and leather swing coats, to luxurious hats and vintage chiffon dresses. My favorite piece from her closet that I was given is a fur muff that is both absolutely stunning and absolutely over the top for this California weather.

Albeit, not only did she impact my style aesthetic, she impacted my persona of strength and courage and most importantly a steadfast faith. 

Whether playing in makeup or doing her hair, we shared unforgettable special moments that fundamentally shaped my style, femininity and the essence of who I would become. 

This I do in dedication of her memory.

Introducing Jimmie Lee

Jimmie Lee was 1 of 3 girls born to James and Bertha. James sent all 3 of his daughters to college. My great grandfather instilled in my grandmother the value of education and that trickled down to me. Jimmie Lee attended junior college at 16, then North Carolina A&T University and then to Grady Municipal Training School for Colored Nurses. While there she met my grandfather and they started a family. In the 1970s she attended Pepperdine to further her education. 

Jimmie Lee.jpg

Jimmie Lee was a knockout, my mom used to tell me how men were always approaching them when they went out. I only saw this Jimmie Lee in pictures, she always had on a fabulous outfit with hair perfectly coiffed. She was a vision, I've always admired that poised and effortlessly chic woman staring back at me. She represented a God fearing, well educated, chic woman who was also the breadwinner for her family. As my grandmother's priorities have shifted over time she continues to instill in me the importance of education and encourages me to go after what I want in life. This line is for who she was, is and could have been. 

I love you grandma!
