Leather headwrap and basics

One of my ultimate Fanm Djanm headwrap is the “leather” one. The material is similar to some high-waisted American Apparel pants I purchased a few years ago. I love the texture of it, which makes the black a statement and less “basic”. I love to wrap it a variety of style, but this turban style […] Read more…

Puerto Rico Lookbook

A stroll through Old San Juan in a sheer white dress and leopard print headwrap reminded me of how beautiful it is to be a woman. I was no longer “Paola, the dreamer”. I was “Lola, the conquerer”. Yes, I have a few alter egos. They set the mood. They take me places. That day, […] Read more…

Le petit chapeau violet

Hats, I love hats. Big hats, round hats, floppy hats, sequined hats, vintage hats… Hell! I love hats that don’t even make sense. When I wear them, I feel like I’m playing a certain role. And each role comes to me based on how I’m feeling that day. I’ve always wondered why I like so […] Read more…

My first 2016 haircut

I have a new barber. I decided he was my new barber yesterday. He’s the second barber I’ve had in New York who has cut my hair more than once. It was also my second time in his chair. He smiled at me the same way he smiled at me the first time I came […] Read more…

Trini Vibes

Trinidad is absolutely beautiful. The past two days on the island have made me feel like I’m right at home. Within my first hour in Port of Spain, I went to get a haircut at a random barber shop I found just a few minutes from the apartment I rented for the week. The cut was […] Read more…

Tan and Denim

You can never go wrong with tan and denim. The two go together like a good mojito and a beautiful beach sunset. The color combination also looks good on every skin and body type. It’s fun and classic, and there’s just something “rich” looking about it. I paired my $10 short romper I scored from […] 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…

Mango Gelato

I have a love-hate relationship with the Meatpacking Disctrict. I love the aesthetics of the small neighborhood. I enjoy dining and grabbing a cocktail or two at many of the restaurants. I’m in love with the cobblestoned streets even if I trip and wobble every other step. However, I typically despise some of the pompous […] Read more…

White on White in Miami

One of my favorite summer colors is white. It’s just so easy to wear. It makes everything look classy, and it’s a great canvas if you love to wear lots of accessories. I love white pants especially. They accentuate the booty and give curves to women like me who lack them. I paired my white […] Read more…
