 It’s Tuesday Shoesday & BLACK LIVES MATTER Everyday! 

Since is #Shoesday, I’m sharing that I’m torn about my favorite #ManoloBlahnik shoes. I’ve been keeping up with my favorite designer brands to see where they stand on civil rights & the inequality, injustice & oppression of Black people in America and Manolo Blahnik really let me down. They posted a black box on #blackouttuesday but with NO statement on the issue. 
So, I did a little more research to learn that he is “close personal friends” with the Trumps & we all know that Donald is a racist!🤢 
Investigating more I found that his philanthropy lacks diversity as well. 

How very disappointing. How can I support a brand that does not support me? Although I did actually purchase these from black & minority owned consignment shops. If I do keep them I will NOT be tagging or promoting them. But they are my favs. 

There’s so many wonderful black owned shoe brands with GORGEOUS shoes anyway... like @aminahjillil @brothervellies 
The next pair of expensive shoes I purchase will be from a brand that is black owned and/or anti-racist. 
Manolo Blahnik isn’t either. 

By the way, the Heritage Pride Tee & BLACK GIRL MAGIC earrings are available NOW in the District Gems Boutique @shopdistrictgems
And... how do you feel about your Manolo Blahnik’s now? Are you keeping up on who is supporting the movement or do you even care?
