Kristabel Plummer on: Blackness, Blogging And Being A Brand

I remember the first time I saw Kristabel Plummer. It was on a now defunct Shortlist media website called Never Underdressed. The site was a sister site to Stylist, but more glossy, more high end and even more fashion. Kristabel, if memory serves me right, took part in a changing rooms editorial feature and I remember reading every word she said because she looked like me. In this sea of whiteness, there was my reflection and it came in the form of Kristabel. 

After reading the feature, I went off and explored her site, iwantyoutoknow.co.uk. I remember logging on seeing beautiful images of this black girl and reading about her obsession with knitwear. The crispness of her photography, the clean uniform style of her blog and the radiance of her brown skin, firmly established Kristabel Plummer as my favourite blogger - a title that she still holds.
