Hold onnn, So half a million attendees showed up to Essence Fest, and no one from the Bomb and Bossy team was there? After living vicariously through everyone on social media we promise to make an appearance next year. This high attendee rate came to no surprise because the release of the movie 'Girls Trip' last year increased the hype and some hotels even sold out weeks after the movie release.
This year's festival featured concerts, workshops, panel discussions, so much black girl magic and festival style that we are ready to steal and add to our wardrobe. There was everything from color blocking, layering, to sneakers with dresses. Check out our favorite festival looks ahead.
