Pinstripe and African print

I sat at a bagel shop sipping on my coffee, catching up with Joey, and waiting for the rain to stop. An older woman walked past me and complimented my shoes.  “Thank you! I had to make sure to wear nice shoes today. I just finished speaking at a high school in Newark. Kids pay […] Read more…

Crime fighting in Midtown

Flare sent the signal from Down Under. She was in charge of operating the computers this time, and she didn’t like it one bit. Dazzle, Pao Pao, and Bionica emerged aboveground, on the hunt for one of the most powerful sex trafficking bosses in North America. They’ve been studying his every move since he arrived in New […] Read more…

Lost in Bermuda

Last year was adventurous. I was invited by Bermuda Fashion Festival to participate in their annual week-long fashion festivities this past July, and it was nothing short of amazing. I shared a guest house with models from Jamaica, California, and around the world. I mingled with international movie stars and fashion designers. I went on […] Read more…

Barefoot in Austin

There’s so much pressure in every way possible, and the more work I do, it seems like more is required to keep it afloat. Don’t worry, I’m not really complaining because I absolutely love what I do.  I […] Read more…

TV Interview with What’s Eating Harlem

A few months ago, I hosted a pop up shop in Harlem, and was thrilled to have What’s Eating Harlem feature my style along with my company. I missed the night the interview aired on PBS’ NYC Life Channel, but I’m glad it’s available on YouTube! The turnout of the pop up was wonderful, and […] Read more…

Video: Q&A with the fiance

My fiance and I answered some questions we were asked by some of my followers on Instagram. It was awkward, but what you see is what you get. This video is a true reflection of our relationship. My fiance is ridiculous. I had no idea he was holding a spatula the whole time we were […] Read more…

Gaudy

When I was in high school, right when I was getting comfortable with speaking English, a classmate looked at me and said with an accusatory tone that made me blush, “You’re so gaudy!” I felt bad without knowing the meaning of the word. I could tell by the way she spat her statement that she […] Read more…

Dear LX

Lately, I’ve been receiving a lot of emails from young women about career choices. I get to read their dreams, and what they’d like to do. And I very humbled that they share some of their stories with me. Since this has been a recurring thing, I will respond to the ones that start to repeat […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…
