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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Gaudy

When I was in high school, right when I was getting comfortable with speaking English, a classmate looked at me and said with an accusatory tone that made me blush, “You’re so gaudy!” I felt bad without knowing the meaning of the word. I could tell by the way she spat her statement that she […]

My little pink dress

I love girly things. But what I love even more are comfy, girly things. This little pink bubblegum dress makes me feel happy to be a lady. It’s playful, comfortable, and just so freakin’ cute! I wanted to play with pastels while incorporating my Fanm Djanm head wrap. I  neutralized the look with some nude, […]

Ready for spring

I keep saying that I’m ready for spring, but then again who isn’t? I actually didn’t let the winter bother me as much as it has in previous years. And I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve had the whole “rise and grind” mentality within the past year since I started Fanm Djanm. Running your […]

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 […]

Charmed Feathers

It’s amazing to wear something that comes from love, patience, and a beautiful person you’ve met and connected with. I hosted my very first out of state Fanm Djanm event last month. I worked with the kindest people, and it was a pleasure to meet each and every guest. The post from that event is […]

Black on black on black

I’m not one to wear too much black. But when when I do, I like a nice mixture of texture and excitement. I’ve been in love with this little faux leather high slit pencil skirt I purchased at a local boutique months ago. And whenever I wear it, I try to make it look a […]
