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 […]

Style post: California day and night
