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. […]

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 […]

Finding Harlem Street Style: Rodney

  The weather getting nicer, and the men are looking more dapper. I stopped this young Harlemite at Red Rooster one eventful evening. He was on his way out with a suitcase. I learned it was his birthday, and he was going to visit some friends, then catch a flight in the early morning.  I […]

Finding Harlem Street Style: Kristia

It’s been spring for a week now, but it’s still winter. Seriously, the wind almost knocked me down the other day, and you could only imagine how I’m feeling. If the weather was a human being and cared about my emotions, I would give her the biggest side eye right now. Anyway, I met up […]

Bright sweaters and big hair are never a bad combination. This week’s feature on “Finding Harlem Street Style” is a personal friend of mine. She’s as bubbly and […]

My African Hat

One of my current favorite accessories is my African hat purchased at the African market in Harlem. What I love about shopping at open markets is not mostly what I find, but how I find them. I love my interaction with the merchants. They’re all sweet people full of life. They’re creative, funny, and they […]

Fringe by the Hudson

New York City parks are really something special. Some make you feel like you’re completely away from the city, while others make you feel like you’re right in the middle of it. I’ve forgotten how much I enjoy strolling Riverside Park while looking at the Hudson. Sunny days always make me appreciate things more, but […]

Weekend casual with a t-shirt

  T-shirts with a good message always get me. I love the t-shirt look, but I don’t wear it very often. The reason is that I own so many dresses and dressy blouses. And believe it or not, dresses are easier for me than jeans and t-shirts, even on casual days. I also understand that […]

Rose print midi

Click on individual photos below for full images.       I packed a body-fitting, rose-print midi dress in my suitcase for my Austin trip just in case the fiancé and I went on a romantic night out. Well, I had a few options for such occasion, but this was the easiest. The dress is […]
