About Me

Tarana Burke - About Me

Hi! Thank you for checking out the site. Here is a little bit about me. I started this blog in 2013 after a few years of following fashion bloggers and not being able to find any that spoke specifically to my demographic: Forty and over, stylish women who are still vibrant and fun while being savvy and practical. I am a busy mom of one dynamic girl child and I do social justice work that takes me all over the world. I love to experiment with color and texture and print in my wardrobe – but I don’t stray too far from my well tailored classics.

She Slays is the manifestation of my lifelong fascination with fashion and my passion for shopping – and saving! Everyday women, just like me, can have the closet of their dreams with a little creativity, tenacity and sense of self. I don’t think there is anything wrong with a little flair for the dramatic – even if you have an hour long commute to work every day. Make any path you walk your runway – and SLAY!

If you are a woman between 38 and 49 you might want to hop over to our other site: www.fortyisthenewforty.com it is the destination for celebrating everything divine after thirty-nine. The website is all things #forties, with articles, recipes, features, and much more!

Lastly, if you support young women and girls of color please visit www.justbeinc.org and www.themtm.org and check out the great work that these organizations are doing to ensure the health, well-being and wholeness of the next generation.
