Pink Suit Pink Shoes

I love suits! I have a thing for menswear and menswear inspired outfits made for women. You already know I love to mix pretty much everything. A little mashup of my favorite things can never hurt, you know?  I fell in love with these pink culotte suit, and as soon as I saw it, and […] Read more…

Pinstripe and African print

I sat at a bagel shop sipping on my coffee, catching up with Joey, and waiting for the rain to stop. An older woman walked past me and complimented my shoes.  “Thank you! I had to make sure to wear nice shoes today. I just finished speaking at a high school in Newark. Kids pay […] Read more…

Le petit chapeau violet

Hats, I love hats. Big hats, round hats, floppy hats, sequined hats, vintage hats… Hell! I love hats that don’t even make sense. When I wear them, I feel like I’m playing a certain role. And each role comes to me based on how I’m feeling that day. I’ve always wondered why I like so […] Read more…

My first 2016 haircut

I have a new barber. I decided he was my new barber yesterday. He’s the second barber I’ve had in New York who has cut my hair more than once. It was also my second time in his chair. He smiled at me the same way he smiled at me the first time I came […] 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…

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…

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…

Colorful and Comfortable

Color and comfort are my two of my most favorite things when it comes to fashion and well… pretty much, life! Color because it makes me feel happy, alive, and it makes everything look more beautiful. Comfort because I feel the most confident when I’m comfortable. And let’s face it, we just accomplish a lot […] Read more…

The Muse of JB b.o.r.n.

The day after I approached Jonathan with my proposal to sell Fanm Djanm at his boutique, he told me he had to speak with me in his office. I followed up up the stairs with a thousand thoughts running through my mind. Finally I (halfway) shouted, “Don’t tell me you’re backing out of the proposal!?” […] Read more…
