It’s spring!

It’s spring! At least that’s what the weather pretended to be a few days ago. So I pulled out some of my brightest clothes and went for a stroll around Columbia. I wanted to match the spring flowers and sing with the birds. I wanted to smile at strangers and dance with the sun. I […]

The gold blazer

I felt like a Parisian in this outfit. This jumpsuit is one of my ultimate favorite wardrobe pieces. It’s just so classic, and the details are amazing. I normally wear heels with it, but this time, I decided to go with an Afro-French-Ellen-Degeneres look. At least that’s how the blazer and the shoes made me […]


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 […]

As much as I like bright, feminine and chic clothing, there are times, I’m just not in the mood for it. I love layering in dark and monochrome colors too. Although sometimes, I cheat, and I wear a bright red checkered cape to give everything more life! Because life is fun, you hear? I think […]
