Striped trousers and Ankara bandanna

As I grow with my business, I’m taking notice of how my personal style is evolving. I’ve always been one to choose comfort over “sexiness”. I love high waisted pants that are not too tight or rigid. And for a while, I didn’t like wearing jeans because just like my life, I don’t think to feel […] Read more…

Trini Vibes

Trinidad is absolutely beautiful. The past two days on the island have made me feel like I’m right at home. Within my first hour in Port of Spain, I went to get a haircut at a random barber shop I found just a few minutes from the apartment I rented for the week. The cut was […] Read more…

Essence Street Style Block Party

I lifted my long denim dress right above my ankles to ease my climb from the underground. With my headwrap tied into the Fanm Djanm signature flower-bow, I reached the exit at Borough Hall Station. I heard a woman in the distance cursing her luck. I looked into the grey Brooklyn skies and understood why […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

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, […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…
