Chicago’s fashion scene is surely on the rise, and with a rising fashion scene comes an increase in fashion and beauty bloggers. You see them at fashion shows or fashion events snapping a ton of pictures to put on their blog to make a name for themselves in the industry.
Afrobella is a blog founded by Patrice Yursik. Afrobella was created to celebrate natural hair and women all shades of beautiful. Yursik blogs about everything from fashion, makeup, music, to her Trinidadian roots. Yursik has contributed to Essence, Newsweek.com, xoJane.com and Ebony.com, and was one of the initial contributors to Italian Vogue’s “Vogue Black.” In 2011, Yursik partnered with MAC Cosmetics to create her own custom lipglass called “All of My Purple Life” that sold out in one week.
