Finding Inspiration in Lost Files

Finding Inspiration in Lost Files

As a busy young woman, I find that I’m literally spreading my time super thin. Whether it’s with my office job or my hobby, it can be very mentally draining. Sometimes I want to just give up and not push myself so hard, but then I find little things that motivate me and inspire me to keep on keeping on.

I’ve been in a small creative funk lately and today I decided to go through my camera roll in my phone (who else does this when seeking inspo?) to see what catches my eye and help get my creative juices flowing. While scrolling through my album, I came across some shots I took last year of a fashion event for MATCHESFASHION and a photo gallery for a good friend of mine, Valine; a super talented young photographer. I wanted to share those photos with you all, maybe someone else finds inspiration in them also.

How do you guys cope with a creative funk? What do you turn to motivate you?

Kiana Ledé & Abby Jasmine, Female Artists to Look Out For…

This week was a very exciting week for me with my writing. Two features went live on MISSBISH that I was so passionate about. R&B singer/songwriter Kiana Ledé’s latest EP Selfless is a journey of emotions both raw and real. Catch her interview here.

Abby Jasmine has always been interested in pursuing a musical career, as a matter of fact, she recorded her first song at the age of 7! The Staten Island native is currently working on her EP, soon to be released. Read all about her here.

Washington Heights x “Puro Platano” Converse

Washington Heights x “Puro Platano” Converse

Last month I received a pair of Chucks with a very special meaning behind them. A fellow Dominican creative, Ray Polanco Jr., customized a pair of the classic Converse and dubbed them “Puro Platano.” The sneakers were in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month and were created as an ode to the Dominican Flag and a staple food, platanos. If you’re not familiar with what a platano is, it’s one of our most popular food items; we smash them to make mangu, we fry them to make tostones, we pretty much do anything and everything to them to enjoy with either Induveca salami, eggs, avocado etc. It’s only right that the “Puro Platano” chucks are an all over green with gold detailing on the eyelets and Converse branding. Red, white and blue details on the sole are the colors of our flag and lastly, my favorite part of the sneakers, is the camo brown design on the inside which represents the variety of skin complexions within our culture.

All that being said, my friend Maria and I, decided to go to the heart of Dominican culture here in NYC to showcase the beauty of the sneakers. We took a stroll in the Heights, took some pictures, talked about how amazing the local avocados looked and ended our day with some sancocho at Casa del Mofongo. Check out the pics below!
