The Muse of JB b.o.r.n.

The day after I approached Jonathan with my proposal to sell Fanm Djanm at his boutique, he told me he had to speak with me in his office. I followed up up the stairs with a thousand thoughts running through my mind. Finally I (halfway) shouted, “Don’t tell me you’re backing out of the proposal!?” […]

Vintage and Leaf Earrings

It’s a freezing Sunday afternoon in mid February. Marie Pierre Jean-Baptiste has a rendez-vous with her lover. She rushes to their spot near Herald Square, where they held hands for the very first time under the flickering lights of the city that never sleeps. She wore his favorite hat. And she waited with eagerness and […]

C’mon kids, it’s spring! Don’t mind the rain or the chilly wind this week. The sun will be shining again soon so let’s meet in the park! Grab your scooter or bike. Make sure you grab a bouquet of colorful flowers, and we can ride together. We will of course frolic and take full advantage […]

I love my interaction with the merchants. They’re all sweet people full of life. They’re creative, funny, and they […]

Vintage mini dress

I’ve always felt like I belong in a different time period. Another decade. Another era. Something… I’m not entirely sure what time period that would be though, and maybe that’s why I love vintage things so much. It was a no-brainer to stop by some vintage shops while I was visiting Austin. I found this […]

Style post: Basics

You know what’s always in style? Going through your closet and reusing articles of clothing you’ve owned in a new way. Basics are always worth the investment. I may love silver boots and things that stand out from time to time, but the foundation of a good wardrobe is just the basics. The plain blouses, […]

Style post: Clashing

This outfit was inspired by beautiful sunny fall days. Looking at the tree tops of Central Park from my roof in the fall always gives me a fuzzy feeling. I look at nature’s beautiful work in front of one of the most exciting cities in the world as the backdrop. The blue sky flirts with […]
