If you’re not following Kahlana Barfield Brown (@kahlanabarfield) on da ‘Gram, what are You doing with Your life?
Fashion and Beauty Editor, Television Correspondent, Creative and Brand Consultant, Wife, Mom, and all around Black Girl Magic, Kahlana is one of my instagram favorites and top 3 on my list of fashion inspirations!
So, I had to make her My first feature on My new blog series titled Double Take, where I recreate the looks of some of my favorite fashion influencers. Scrolling through the ‘gram over a year ago, I came across one of Kahlana’s effortless jeans and heels looks. I saved the photo in My IG album called “Looks” and instantly got the idea to recreate her look! I had already own the Fashion Nova dupe to her YSL Tour Crystal Embellished Sandals, so why not? Her look was Ballin’ and My Own was on a Budget, but hey! I think I could make it work!

Besides having similar heels, I also had a grey Mickey Mouse Sweater Dress that I had never worn and I figured it would be cool to substitute it as a sweater top to recreate Kahlana’s look. My boyfriend-jeans didn’t fit Me as baggy as Her jeans fitted her, but then again… this is a recreation, not an exact imitation!
