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 […]

Date night

Sometimes my fiance looks up from a book or comes home, and just decides to take me out on a date. Not a “put on your tennis shoes, and let’s go get frozen yogurt and a movie” date. He wants a “let’s get all dressed up and go somewhere we need to hail a cab […]

Summer Breeze

Summer breeze, o’ summer breeze, where art thou? It has been hot! Hot, humid, and sometimes rainy. But I don’t mind. Give me a hot, humid, and rainy day anytime over a cold, lip-shivering, bone-breaking day. I’m caribbean, baby! For example, yesterday, I had no problem walking in the storm without an umbrella. You know […]

Dashiki Print Matching Set

I’m obsessed with matching sets. Really I am! So, I decided to make some for Fanm Djanm. The brand is about living colorfully and boldly, but I want it to remain effortless.

Floral print matching set

I realized that I have too many matching sets in my closet. The only reason you don’t realize this is because I always wear them separately. I love the idea though! When I was younger, I remember how many matching sets of tops and shorts or skirts my mom used to get me, so I […]

Colors for Sunday brunch

I live colorfully. I love colors in everything that I do. I love colors on my food. And I will even add that my personality is also very colorful. That’s why my headwrap collection makes it so easy for me to get dressed now! Mixing prints is also one of my favorite things to do, […]

Iced Coffee

I walk almost everywhere. I’m seen all over Harlem and the city, and most of the time I’m rushing somewhere. I grab either a smoothie or an iced coffee to go! One of my favorite spots to do work meetings or (even work) is Double Dutch. So if you ever see me, say hello! Tis […]

My Outfit to Makeda’s Art Exhibit

I was thrilled to attend Makeda‘s art exhibit in Chelsea this past Thursday. After a fun-filled day of cooking with Nadege and shooting the new face of Fanm Djanm for June, I was ready for some amazing art and champagne. I met the artist at Gessica’s “Vizaj Nou” documentary premier a few weeks back, and […]
