#somanywaystowearit

We're super excited about our new men's fit shirts, and while we do think that they are pretty perfect for the gents, we also think that they're pretty perfect for everyone! We asked our teams in NY and SF to style the shirt because who doesn't love some #outfitinspo? :)

WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO // MANGA by Mayra Andrade

This Cape Verdean singer is my newest obsession! Her beats are strong, her sound is sweet, and whenever I've got this in my headphones, I find myself drifting off (admittedly not a tough achievement, but still).

Two years on Bleecker!

Can you believe it's already been two years since we opened on Bleecker Street? We certainly can't! As some of you may remember, we started out as a pop-up, hoping that we'd be able to keep the doors open for a few months, and two years later, we're amazed and truly grateful that all of you continue to come and hang out with us!! We're also really proud of the women who have joined our team over the last few years and grown with us. 

You ALL have helped us to make this house a home, so thank you for being part of our family!

WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO // ZURI AUGUST PLAYLIST

This month, we've been listening to a ton of music from Mali! The songs on this playlist are melodic, peaceful and just generally overall lovely. So, whether you're relaxing at home or jamming away at work, throw some earbuds in and get ready to Bama-ko!

We made a podcast: Shop Talk!

From left to right: Blanche, Julia, Ginger, Dee Dee, Inja and Nia.

We feel super lucky that we get to meet and be inspired by our amazing customers (like you!) in our stores. So often we have winding conversations that I wish that we could record and share, so we thought, let's make a podcast!

At one of our first SF popups, we met a customer who said that she was here for a dress, but had to wait for her sister before deciding. That sister arrived, and then mentioned that another sister would be coming. And so it went until eventually we put 1 +1 + 1 + 1 + 1 together. We're so proud now that three of these five sisters are part of our SF team, and we gathered all five women together last fall for a very fun and insightful conversation with Nia, a daughter/niece and myself!

We'll be sharing more conversations with customers as we go along, but for now, cozy up with a cup of tea and join us as we get to know the these amazing women!

WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO // A-STAR

Hello from not-so-sunny Nairobi, where I've been listening to A-Star CONSTANTLY.  Born in South East London of Ghanaian descent, his sound is addictive. While it is not for everyone, those of you who do like it are going to need some carrots for those dustbunnies, because all of your other albums are going to be shelved.

NEIGHBORHOOD PRIDE

There are a million reasons why we love being in the Village in NYC, and among those is the feeling of history that comes from being here and becoming a part of the community. It is with so much love that we honor the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, just a few blocks from our home on Bleecker Street, and that we celebrate Pride each and every day.

In honor of this landmark anniversary, we'll be making a contribution to the The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in support of their mission of creating a place to connect and engage, find camaraderie and support, and celebrate the vibrancy and growth of the LGBT community in NYC. If you would like to do the same, click here!

WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO // SISTER ROSETTA THARPE

The Godmother of Rock 'n' Roll, Sister Rosetta Tharpe pioneered the electric blues.  Although we listen to her all the time, we'd like to highlight her during Pride month by sharing one of our favorite albums. ENJOY!
