The End of My Love Affair with the Leather Spa: Jim’s Shoe Repair is the Best in New York City

The Leather Spa is a New York City institution. Scores of well heeled fashionistas go there to resole their Christian Louboutin stilettos, rescue stained bags, and resuscitate their shoes. I was one of those Leather Spa Lovers until today. I was blessed by the good Lord with a pair of calves that cut a cute form in summer dresses! But when it comes to winter boots, they don’t fit in–literally. I have been using The Leather Spa for years to…

Claire’s Life: Harlem’s Fashion Row’s Prelude Event Honoring Misa Hylton, Dapper Dan, and April Walker!

Kobe Bryant’s untimely passing recently shocked the world--and reaffirmed what we already know: tomorrow is not promised. So, if you love and value someone, honor them while they are still here. It was that sentiment that prevailed at Harlem Fashion Row’s Prelude event, hosted by Brandice Daniel. For over a decade, Harlem’s Fashion Row has been working, consistently, to thrust a spotlight on designer’s of color. Last night, the organization threw a party, punctuated by original performances, celebrating the accomplishments of Misa Hylton, April Walker, and Dapper…

Happy Saturday! A few days ago, I had the pleasure of co-hosting a shopping party at Alice & Olivia’s Soho store, alongside powerful boss ladies Angela Yee, Caryn Prime, Tiffany Reid, and Mashonda Tifrere. Guests gathered at 98 Greene Street to shop it up for Spring, with a portion of proceeds going towards Camba. Attendees nibbled on hors d’oeuvres from Negril New York, sipped on juices from Drink Fresh Juice, and received makeup touch ups from Nars. Bombshells and Bombers…

This season, I was definitely ‘meh.’ Life is in flux, I’m focused on hosting and speaking, so I actually skipped out on Fashion Week for 2 days to speak at the Who’s the Bawse conference!

Claire’s Life + Show Review: Harlem’s Fashion Row’s NYFW Kickoff Featuring Lebron James, Kimberly Goldson, Fe Noel, and More!

The issue of diversity in fashion is one that bubbles to the surface every fashion week. The truth is: in an industry that traditionally caters to the super wealthy elite, people of African descent don’t typically have a seat at the table. A litany of factors have kept many out of that top 1% and thus ‘out of fashion,’–but that doesn’t mean we don’t have style, set trends, or make waves. Harlem’s Fashion Row, created by Brandice Daniel over 10…

The Bomb Life New York Shop: New Express Tailor on 92 Rivington (Good, But Don’t Expect Same Day)

Any fashionista worth her salt knows the importance of tailoring. Clothes look the best when they fit, and alterations can uplift any look! So I decided to share one of my New York gems with you: New Express Tailor on 92 Rivington. This place is no muss, no fuss. Nothing fancy, at all, but they are professional, capable, and best of all, able to make alterations same day. I actually wrote this before they took my garments at 9:30 am…
