The perfect silk blouse

If Michelle Obama, sent me an invitation for tea, this is the outfit I would have worn. I would walk up to her with the biggest smile, and I would give her a firm hand shake in my Bien Abye blouse and Fanm Djanm headwrap. Instead, this little number was worn in the beautiful garden […]

Playing dress up in Tete’s closet

The bed was neatly covered with layers of beautiful prints, textures, and colors. There were so many possibilities that would make the perfect and most interesting outfit, it was impossible to stay focused. Oh, and the accessories! Purses, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings of all kinds dangled artistically in various corners of the room or occupied […]

Summer Breeze

Summer breeze, o’ summer breeze, where art thou? It has been hot! Hot, humid, and sometimes rainy. But I don’t mind. Give me a hot, humid, and rainy day anytime over a cold, lip-shivering, bone-breaking day. I’m caribbean, baby! For example, yesterday, I had no problem walking in the storm without an umbrella. You know […]

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 […]
