Blazers, headwraps, coffee

If you’ve ever wondered, “What is one thing that would look absolutely chic and unexpected with a headwrap?” The answer is: blazer. I’m actually obsessed with blazers.

Birthday Brunch with Fola

I first saw Fola in a photograph that went viral on Facebook and Tumblr. At that time, I was still at regular my “9:00-7:00″ so I was not as active online. I didn’t know her name or where she was based, but her fearless presence in the photo kept my attention. I always wondered who […]

Shopping in Harlem: Flamekeepers Hat Club

Smooth jazz playing in the background. A warm and light atmosphere pulls me in. Clean rows and beautiful men’s hats speak to me. It’s the kind of shop that makes a girl take off the vibrant headwraps she swears by to put on a man’s hat. I notice a great variety from leather caps, bowler hats, […]

The perfect silk blouse

If Michelle Obama, sent me an invitation for tea, this is the outfit I would have worn. I would walk up to her with the biggest smile, and I would give her a firm hand shake in my Bien Abye blouse and Fanm Djanm headwrap. Instead, this little number was worn in the beautiful garden […]

Fanm Djanm in Haiti

On Thursday, September 25th, 2014, Le Boudoir de Francoise Elizee, an upscale boutique located in the heart of Petion-Ville opened its doors and welcomed the Fanm Djanm movement.

From Jacmel, with love

We got on the road and headed to Jacmel as soon as I landed in Port-au-Prince. I’ve never been, and Gessica wanted to take me. I was so excited! But I tried to remain neutral so I wouldn’t get disappointed. I’ve learned that things are not always what they seem, and by remaining neutral, I […]
