Jefferey Spivey – Deeper than Fashion

Jefferey Spivey

In the second episode of my live author interview series, The Read, I talked with Jefferey Spivey of Uptown Bourgeois. He’s a freelance writer and fashion blogger who recently took his work into deeper areas of thought. This transformation lead to the completion of his first book, It’s Okay If You Don’t Read Everything. It’s a compilation of essays and articles from his blog along with a few new ones. I recommend giving it a look because every page leaves you laughing, smiling, or reflecting.

The bulk of the book is about the lessons Jefferey has learned from life; everything from being stereotyped as a tall Black man to breaking away from a job he didn’t like in order to live on his own terms. Our conversation tackles finding love, diversity in the fashion industry, and finding your own personal definition of success.
