It's not every day we discover a designer brand made up of beautiful garments that are both relatable and affordable to the everyday woman. As a budget conscious consumer, I do my best outfitting my wardrobe with affordable brands that speak to how I feel and how I'd like to be seen. With so much going on in the world, it's nice to see Black women entrepreneurs thriving in a world that oftentimes overlooks our talents and capabilities.

With a modern essence combined with an artistic feel, Nior is the epitome of class. The Nior customer isn't afraid to be bold. She is unapologetic in her style and fearless in position. Confident in who she is, she looks up to Black women who've conquered before her, defining what it means to appreciate luxury. "Nior is the art of a classic woman. I get my inspiration from the greats, Diana Ross, The Supremes, Cicely Tyson, Diahann Caroll and all the women in my family who are always so poised and beautiful," explains Dime Jones, designer and founder of The Nior Collection.

"We pride ourselves in telling our story through a Black woman's eyes. It's important that we highlight who we are so that we can define our futures."

This summer, Nior introduced the brand's first swim collection and I can't get enough of it. With contemporary lines and soft subtle asymmetrical drapes, each new style is a fashionista's dream. Whether traveling the world or looking for pieces to complete your weekend style, this is a collection that speaks to the art of a woman.

"The inspiration for Nior swim was for it to be pieces that you can wear everywhere, not just in the pool or at the beach. You can transition these pieces into your everyday life and that's what I love so much about the designs. We use a lot of neutral colors that can be worn with any color tone."

In need of all four styles, there's a sexy sleek quality in the design that was created for everyone. Defining itself as a luxury ready-to-wear collection, Nior continues to stay true to their brand by creating styles for the modern day women.

"I want everyone to feel like they can afford it, but still see that it is quality work. I am a small brand, but I know my potential and I want my consumer to grow with me."

Ranging in sizes small to x-large, it's nice to see brands including larger sizes into the mix. When it comes to being size-inclusive, Jones states, "Size inclusivity is a no-brainer. The more I grow, the more I want to dive into that market more."

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
