Don't you just love a good street runway show! The relaxed style in the French Riviera proved to be effortless resort wear perfection. It's obviously a vacation destination where good fashion sense is appreciated.

As Wedding Season dawns upon me and Innovative Arts Photography kicks it's gears into hi-speed, I still love to be engaging with the fashion community keeping an ear to the ground whenever possible and I'm soooooo glad I caught wind of Fashion Takeout! The Black Owned fashion boutique boasts of high fashion that will "break necks not your pockets" so you know I had to pop in and see for myself. Co-owners Bettyna Theo...

Here in Miami, our cultural fashion radars are on 10 right about now as Black history month has begun and Ankara Miami Fashion Week is in the air! Now the only question is ........WHAT DO I WEAR??!!!!

Solange Knowles is an unapologetic cultural fashion icon for the millenial generation with a retro flare & natural glow that make me proud to be a strong Black woman! As a fellow culture maven, she takes risks and m...

Lesson: How to stand out within a sea of beauty on one of the most visually stimulating days of every West Indian's calendar...CARNIVAL! 

 

Though seemingly difficult, I always admire the island flavor my people bring to their everyday runway...the streets of course & unapologetically so! ;) Here are a few of my faves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 By this time I was jumping up too much to take clear pics as you can very well see, I...

As a fashion & lifestyle blogger {~however new to the blogosphere~}there are opportunities popping up constantly & offers to try new interesting products & services in order to share experiences with readers. Now let's be honest, we all want to build valuable relationships but disctretion is definitely necessary.

Now we all know that Rihanna has transformed the way we look at fashion all together. Her fiercely bold attitude and risque choices inspire us all to do what resonates most with us, no matter what others will think. My favorite Rihanna moments are when she goes Indigenous/African/Roots inspired in any way shape or form showing the world that she knows where she comes from and unapologetically embraces her roots. Now...

The Soultry Speakeasy is a fine dining experience that highlights the prohibition era ‘Harlem Renaissance’ culture featuring a culinary pairing of food, wine & spirits reminiscent of the cultural, social, and artistic explosion that took place in Harlem in the 1920s thru mid-1930s. During this period New York City’s Harlem district was transformed into a fabled cultural center; inspiring a legendary creative movement...

Every girl needs a bestie, that special someone who knows you in all of your madness & still loves you despite seeing uglier days {~literally...eww lol~}.

One of the best parts of traveling is the reading time it affords. So seeing the super thick issue of September's VOGUE at every marketplace I went to before leaving Miami had me practically salivating on command {~ lol ~}. I grabbed a copy for the plane ride to Kingston and was obviously brimming with glee to open it's first pages. There is always such endless inspiration for image makers in the iconic publication t...

Are you the woman who finds shopping frustrating and intimidating OR the woman who's open to trying new style trends until she finds the look she likes, OR PERHAPS, the woman who knows what compliments her frame and personality and owns her signature style regardless of others acceptance!? It's important to understand, it's not the language of the clothes but the expression of y...

On my recent travels with The Tom Joyner Foundation, I was able to sneak off for a quick vaca break while we docked in Honduras on Isla Roatan. I figured, what's the most exciting thing I can do on my 2nd trip to Honduras? Hmmmm....might as well drive an atv through the jungle!

 

One of my "Takes A Village To Raise A Child" mother's from Dallas is always up for an adventure so she was without a doubt, my co-conspirato...

Most people who have ever relocated in their lives, will have experienced some form of culture shock in the new city or town they relocate to. For me, as a native New Yorker & Chicago resident of 6 years, the shock was far more than climatical. Within 2 months of moving to Miami, I realized just how much I began to miss continental Africans.  On any given day, in NYC or Chitown, I can easily go to my favorite Ethiopi...
