It's always a pleasant time visiting the A! Warm southern hospitality, flourishing black businesses, and the rib-sticking food! Catching up with old friends and family time brought me to the city -- needless to say, I had some incredible experiences with some influential individuals. Vacations are therapeutic for some, but for me, it's about fun and the new business opportunities! An entrepreneur works 24/7!
Thanks to my sister Dawntavia Bullard I connected with stylist, Marlissa Crawford and visited her boutique, Nikki Darling & Co., in Downtown ATL. It's amazing to meet fellow entrepreneurs and people who have a passion for perfecting their craft. From talking with Marlissa we agreed that everything goes back to fashion; it's an art form that shapes the culture of the people. The meticulousness that people had for their garments 40+ years ago was impeccable! As a gentleman it was all about making sure your shoes were shined, your suit was tailored, and your overall appearance was well-kept with the utmost tact. Being a gentleman is a lost lifestyle, back then it wasn't uncommon to see a man. . .or even a young boy dressed in a full suit.
Life is much slower in the South so it gives you an opportunity to notice the details and well-being of those around you constantly. Being a southern gentleman should be a standard like it once was, of course our style has modernized but some things are timeless. Atlanta always grounds me when it comes to perspective, no matter where I travel to, this place always feels like home! Until next time, folks!
