In the latest Lenny Letter, Lena Waithe discusses how she learned how to express her identity through fashion in the vintage tee section of a thrift shop:
The shirt wasn’t expensive. It wasn’t made in Italy. And unless you were a TV buff, you wouldn’t understand its significance. But it made me happy every time I put it on. It said something about who I was. It gave strangers a glimpse into my personality without my ever having to say a word.
