Flavor of Friday: Kimberly Sumner

You know when things just...work? And you really have no idea why or how they work out, but you just have to trust that it's fate? That's kind of what happened when I first moved to Harlem and ended up becoming roommates with this lovely lady - Kimberly Sumner.

Though I found her via Craigslist (which we know can be hit or miss), we became fast friends and she was definitely one of my style inspirations for the two months we shared space in uptown NYC. A recent graduate of the Parsons School with a major in Fine Arts, Kim is an artist in every sense of the word. She works passionately and always speaks with conviction. She also has one of the most colorful and perfectly afrocentric closets I've ever seen. I absolutely love her style and I'm not the only one! Kim was recently featured on popular website StyleLikeU. Check out her featured video below...
Though Kim has since moved on to live in artsy Brooklyn, she's obviously still inspiring the masses with her beautiful mane and eccentric closet. You can find Kim at a local BK vintage shop, fabric store, or at an Urban Outfitters where she spends much of her time being uber fab.
