Girl Mob Styling & Profiling Event- A Clothing Swap & Donation

Ever felt like you can’t relate to commercial magazines like Cosmopolitan and Vogue?  While reading articles like “what to wear” and “how to act” my most often thought is GIRL STOP!  After reading dehumanizing articles like that, I look in the mirror with my short stature and natural curls and it reminds me why I gave up on finding any resemblance of myself in those magazines. Thankfully, there is a digital publication called the Girl Mob to save the day.  The Girl Mob is a group of NYC living women of color who embrace their culture and do so much to help others.

Brujeria Uprising Amongst Feminist Millennials: Rediscovering Latinx Roots


Brujeria, which in English means witchcraft, was taught to me in high school with a book. The teacher assigned “The Crucible” written by Arthur Miller in high school. The purpose of the book is to educate the class about the horrific history of The Salem Witch Trials and the beginnings of structured religion. The tone of the book described an era of fear among the witches, painting a dark and dreary image.  Now fast forward to the present, my fellow Latinx millennials and I are digging through family history. While digging through family history we are figuring out aspects of witchcraft that is left out of the book. For many people of color, there is a positive impact in the practice of Brujeria while rediscovering our roots. Continue reading

  Glasses can have an enormous impact on your overall look.I kept this in mind when I decided to purchase a pair of frames last year. I thought to myself, which style of glasses will go with everything I wear. I went with a pair of typical black plastic frames.The more I wore my glasses, the more I felt stuck and ordinary, so I decided to buy contacts to help freshen up my look. I love my contacts, but everyone who wears contacts knows you must give your eyes a rest.The stuck and ordinary feeling came back when I had to wear my typical black frames again..Purchasing my dark glasses felt similar to giving the eye center my arm and a leg.(it cost me $800.00)Then one day my friend came to me like an angel of fashion eyewear heaven.In one week I saw her sporting about five different eyewear looks, and I thought to myself how she could afford to have a range of frames?

Are you the woman at work making a click-clack sound as you stroll through the office hallways? I know I’m not the only one exhausted of coworkers acknowledging my presence before I enter a room. Luckily I met someone who changed the noise volume my heels made as I walk. I met Mary Arnett a few weeks ago at a GirlBossNYC event.(GirlBossNYC is a social network of empowered and inspired NYC women supporting community, careers, and each other). Being the fashion addict I am, I notice a high-quality leather shoe from across the room. I approached Mary and urged her to spill her shopping secret. I needed to know which retailer she purchased the coal-black fringed booties she was rocking. Astonishingly Mary designed the booties. Strongly feeling like a cartoon character with googly eyes, Mary quickly took notice of my attraction towards her shoes and explained the story of her design.
