Afro Chíc

Latest obsession : retro and bohemian style.

In a world where I’m used to deeming coiffed cuts or perfectly curled silky tresses as elegant,  my hair has become a dictionary definition for the term afro chic. I’m having the time of my life figuring out what to wear each day and how to make my soft, Jamaican, curly, locks translate to NYC glamazon.


I honestly feel like I have to put more thought into my outfits because of my hair, but they always end up more fun. Like my wild carefree hair is an easy pass to treating my body like a blank canvas and splattering prints, patterns and textures all over.



The result? – A personal piece of black girl art left for the interpretation of the pedestrians of NYC.


image1My inspiration for this outfit came from a look at the Vivienne Tam Fall 2016 fashion show this February. This look opened the show and stole my heart at hello.

I caught up with Tam backstage and spoke with her about her inspiration for the show. From season to season she never fails to create an entirely different style concept for you to fall in love with.

IMG_9794Vivienne describes the collection as a “cultural dreamland – like a cultural collage with influences from Turkey to China.” Perfect for girls like me who like to treat their bodies like a drawing board for embracing other cultures or emphasizing their own.
