Cocktails and Headwraps At The Cecil

An intimate evening of amazing personal style, headwraps, cocktails, and conversations. That’s what last night was. I met and reconnected with some of the warmest, most positive women in New York. A few came from out of town for the occasion, but we all connected and mingled as if we’ve been friends for a while. […]

Summer Brunchin’ in Brooklyn

I’ve realized that I’ve had too much egg benedict this summer. I’m surprised I’m not now shaped like an egg. I’ve also realized that I have not drunk enough bloody marys, and I need to spend more time in Brooklyn. But it’s so hard to leave Manhattan, especially Harlem! I’ve created a bubble, an oasis, […]

Sofistafunkin’ at Diner En Blanc

It happened again. A magical evening with over 6000 strangers, drinking wine, dancing to great music, and wearing all white. This year,  I had the opportunity to be a table leader at Diner En Blanc 2014 New York City edition. I arrived in my giant white headwrap and equally giant Sofistafunk skirt at the meet […]

What does a feminist look like?

Author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie posted a photo of Beyonce from the 2014 MTV Video Music Award with the caption: “On Monday morning I woke to images of Beyoncé, striking a dramatic pose – dressed as the world’s most beautiful disco ball – in front of the word “FEMINIST” and felt like an excited kid all […]

Fanm Djanm Brunch in Brooklyn

I’ve been admiring Phyllisia‘s work since she made the big move to New York City. I remember Ania texted me on the day of her very first performance underground. She told me, “You’re going to LOVE this Haitian American beauty! Check out her stuff.” And she was right. I dropped what I had to do, […]

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 […]

Fanm Djanm Creative Hour

Boshia is one of the most beautiful women I’ve met in New York. She’s just so electric,  kind, attentive, and has an amazing sense of humor. It only makes sense that my birth twin fancies her. We connected a month ago at the Fanm Djanm’s third month rooftop party and hit it off right away. […]

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 […]

What is sensuality?

Alejandro and I are long time friends. He’s been photographing me for years. A while back he said I was his muse. I got excited at the thought of being someone’s muse so we shot plenty. Many of the photos are not even published. I’ve watched him grow into an amazing photographer. And I know […]

Saturday Night out in Harlem

My fiance and I decided to meet some friends in Harlem for some drinks and dancing. The couple lives on the Upper West Side and doesn’t go out in Harlem much. We thought the best way to spend our night was to start with perfectly crafted cocktails at 67 Orange, then take a short cab […]
