Tika Sumpter Slays In Essence Magazine Spread

 

Essence Magazine Spread

Here is a fun fact: Tika Sumpter sold hams before she became an actress. Started from the bottom now we here! The beautiful and talented Sumpter revealed this interesting tid-bit in Essence Magazine’s August 2014 issue. She gives us round-the-way girl chic in her spread with sleek updos, chunky gold accessories and dark blue separates and reveals her first splurge:

“I bought a Louis Vuitton bag and then I bought Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. It was crazy for me, like, ‘Oh, my card’s not going to decline.’ Everything doesn’t have to be super-expensive, but if you do spend, invest in shoes and a bag.”

Girl, who are you telling? We think everyone has a mini heart attack right when they are about to purchase their first designer item. Check out images from the gorgeous Essence magazine spread after the jump.
