A Bougie Black Love Story

Courtesy of Brandelyn Castine

When I first saw these engagement photos of friend of VSB (and awesome writer) Brandelyn Castine and her fiancee — captured by J.A. Washington — two thoughts came to mind:

1. These are awesome! I need to reach out to her and see if she's cool with me posting them on VSB.


2. Wait…why didn't I think of this shit first??? I sell them, I wear one of the seven I own (five shirts and two hoodies) all the damn time, and The Bougie-ass Wife Person owns a couple too!!! Dammit!!!

Seriously though, who doesn't love a Bougie Black love story?
