Shalishah "Petey" Franklin featured in Rediscover: Memphis doc

So several months ago, I leaked some behind the scenes photos of a 20 person production crew invading my Strange Fruit Vintage studio.

Now, that the project has come to fruition I am happy to share! I, along with a few others including my dear Kerry Crawford of the I Love Memphis Blog, got to share our city from our view. Produced by Fremantle Media for Buick and featured on here are a few videos and an extremely well written article about me! Enjoy.

I am one of Memphis Flyer's Top 20 < 30

So, a few weeks ago I found out I made the Memphis Flyer's Annual Top 20 Under 30 list! A few days later I found myself jumping on a trampoline. You know, to exude all of my youthfulness in print!

I am very proud of this accomplishment and of the other 19 fabulous 20 somethings sharing the pages with me! This is indeed a great accomplishment and an even greater birthday gift. It is also my last chance to get the nod, unless they expand the list to under 31. #sigh

Casio Gold Databank Watch+Memphis Tigers Vintage Tee+Cream Vintage Cardigan+70s Prison Jeans (literally). All Strange Fruit Vintage!
