I had the pleasure of attending an art exhibition curated by Ms. Lauryn Hill, in collaboration with Haitian Cultural Exchange, MoCADA and Nader Haitian Art. The Diaspora Calling! exhibit was held in the lobby of the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, NY. I may be biased, but Haitian art is my favorite art- the colors, themes and vibrancy are unmatched. The beautiful gold and red old-Hollywood style of the theatre was like an art piece in itself, with opera house and palace-like elements at every turn.Read More
As much as I hate to admit it, I have been waiting for the “right time” to wear this jacket for months! I received this Alexander Wang x H&M Scuba Look top as a birthday gift from my younger brother—shoutout to the bro gawd!—back in November, and had yet to wear it, until this past weekend!
My friend and designer of Fide by Mel D. was participating in the Pink Carpet Affair fashion show in Harlem, NY, and as PR for the line, I was invited to attend and be backstage! It was also one of the coldest days ever, so I decided that it would be the perfect chance to debut the sweater.
Coco Note: Does it not look like the Michelin Man meets waist trainer?! I look like Popeye y’all.Read More
Happy belated Turkey Day y’all!
The tryptophan is so real guys, I was so weak after Thanksgiving I couldn’t even muster up the energy (or will) to write up this post! But I’m here now!
For holidays or family events where I know i’ll be eating up lots of delicious food, I like to go for a comfortable, usually knit or cotton, dress. Dresses give you room to breathe and fill up on seconds without that awkward moment of unbuttoning that top button or having to loosen your belt a notch or 4.Read More
Last weekend I attended a party as a guest of a friend. It was a chance to see a really great band that I’ve been dying to see so I really took the opportunity to dress up!Read More
Last week I had the honor of attending and assisting with the Anniversary Gala of the Association des Ingénieurs Haïtiens et Américains (AIDHA), or Association of Haitian and American Engineers, with my best friend as a guests of the Chairman and his wife. As a Haitian- American, it was such an honor to be able to attend the gala. Since I was technically working and this was a weekday event in the early evening, I opted for a midi-length dress.Read More
As it gets cooler and the mornings get darker, I find myself drawn to darker and thicker fabrics. Let’s call this look “Refined Grunge.”
When I think of grunge, I think dark colors and faded denim. Believe it or not, these jeans were once black. While some see faded black jeans as a negative, I love the semi-worn look, especially for an outfit like this. The slightly graying seams almost looks purposely done. And you don’t have to spend money on an expensive pair of jeans to get this look…..just wash your black jeans a few times!

Today’s ‘fit was the perfect way to usher in the autumn season. Since I’m not quite ready for boot season yet and I’m an all-year-round sweater weather kinda girl, I opted for this light throw-and-go dress.Read More
