their eyes were watching...zora

zora the explorer

this post is dedicated to the queen of the Harlem Renaissance, Zora Neale Hurston. words simply can't describe how crucial hurston's contributions have been to literature, to women, to life. her protagonist, janie, in the sensational novel their eyes were watching god is THE ultimate survivor. this characteristic describes hurston herself to a tee. fashionwise, the harlem renaissance was a time of exquisite taste and zora did not disappoint. i won't go into the trends of that era (i shall leave that for a future post). instead, i will leave you with just a few snapshots of the fashion forward fox that was zora neale hurston. enjoy!
