Everyone who has been to The Big Apple atleast once, has their own kernels of wisdom for the next person. The essentials I have for you so far, are simple:
For a little soul
Carry a piece of African soul with you, on your travels.
Soul Design is a Cape town-born brand dedicated to artisan jewelry. I love their pieces. I’ve worn golden bangles and rings, and so much more from this cool brand.
For dealing with your baggage
Colette Hayman has the handbags needed to lug about all your baggage.
In different shapes, sizes and design, these handbags will leave everyone who sees you, envious.
Make a trend of your need to carry your life around.
For surviving the weather stylishly
With that darned humidity, the only thing necessary beyond all reason, is a maxi dress. Thank goodness for Michelle Ludek‘s incredible new collection – with all that ventilation and beautiful design.
The new collection is available online. I managed to rock several of her dresses: The Jade Dress, The Genevieve, and the Bella Dress – All so fantastic for a feminine silhouette.
For art beyond museums
For all your personalities
Hair is a fun way of showing you are a different person today, so I love my Melanin Magic Hair for letting me flip long and luscious locks while networking, and exploring.
