Mattie Muse: A Conversation Piece







Yesterday was gorgeous and I felt like wearing some African print. I had a meeting in the afternoon and then I headed to the launch of African Pride in the evening. So obviously, it was more than approps. As you’ve probably noticed, I love jumpers. They make my heart soar. Especially ones with pockets. And since I was headed to an event where I would be networking I wanted to wear a conversation piece. So I decided to wear a headtie – which I totally freestyled – and indeed it did spark conversation. I always try to wear something that’ll POP when I’m in black. I scored the earrings from a street vendor in Harlem circa 2008. Easily one of my favorite accessories. This jumper can easily make me look freakishly small so I added Hubs’ belt to create shape.

JUMPER: Gracia Fashion per Karmaloop
BOOTIES: BCBG
