Blogging dynamo Cece of LoveBrownSugar noted this week that she’s had enough of the side-eye in fashion, and frankly, so have I.

As you explore this week’s list and head into the weekend, I leave you with this thought: “Women with wings,” Sacramento, of Mis Papelicos, wrote, “use their wings not only to fly, but to cuddle, to shelter, to back, to push and to hug.” What are you using your wings for?
