Sh*t Bougie Black People Love

A Bougie Black Love Story

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?

    • TeeChantel

      You can buy them through the tee-spring campaign. Champ and Panama promote it here on VSB. Not sure when it’s gonna happen again but I hope its soon I have a few ladies that would love to buy shirts.
