Those who know me know that I’m all about empowering and supporting other dope women. Last week I had the unique opportunity do just that by attending the Womeneur launch event at Dumbo Loft. Womeneur is a new platform and collective designed to celebrate, connect, enlighten and empower female business owners, entrepreneurs and progressive women — with a goal to help them lead extraordinary professional and personal lives. And the founder, Sharon Beason, last week brought out over a dozen women-owned businesses for ladies like me to shop to our hearts delight. Read on for a look at some of my favorites.
Having a blog that’s so centered around images and pictures has changed the way I explore my great city of New York. Before, I used to wander from borough to borough (…ok well really only Manhattan and Brooklyn) for the sole sake of being a tourist in my own city and stumbling upon new sights. I still do that; but now, I also always have an eye out for buildings, landmarks and neighborhoods that can play backdrop nicely to some of my favorite wardrobe pieces.
Brooklyn Museum is one of those spots. The grand architecture that mixes modern with vintage mirrors my own style in many ways.
