Hi, I'm Tahirah. 

My name is Tahirah Christine, and I’m from Inglewood, CA; my favorite color is purple; blankets are my favorite gifts; and my middle name is the same as my mom’s. I used to work at a styling company and now I do marketing for The Estée Lauder Companies, so I guess you could say I've always had a passion for luxury, for beauty, for storytelling. 


I graduated from college in 2016 and took a gap year from law school to start a beauty initiative. The idea for that initiative has now become this, ClothesPetals, a fashion and beauty blog for women (and men) of all shades and colors and hues. Now, my love of language and literature and journalism has brought me here, to a blog where I get to live out my aspirations of being a fashion editor and stylist. I get to write about the men and women of color making strides in these industries while chronicling the start of my own contributions. I hope you're inspired to pursue your passions and take the first steps toward your wildest dreams. Don't let your hesitation hold you back; words I myself strive to live by.
