The Jam.

by Jamila Pierre

I've had a multitude of nicknames throughout life, i'm not sure if I want to divulge all of them but here are a few: Big Head, Jammy, Jamster, Jambalaya, and one of them was and still is, Jam. (And those are just to name a few) So when my best friend, Amy, saw this t-shirt  she found it to be perfect for me. 

It was such a cute and thoughtful birthday gift, I had to rep it in a blog post because I am the Jam.


Can we just pause a moment and be grateful for the people in our lives who bring out the best in us, the people who love us and have our backs? If you don't have someone like that in your life, someone also worthy of your all....get one. It's so painfully important and I am eternally grateful for my peoples. 

Ok, moving on.

I had recently placed an order at and I felt this shirt would go perfectly with it. I also decided to ad an extra touch with the knit jacket/cardigan and these embellished heels. 


This combination of acid wash and leopard print is a subtle yet not so subtle way of mixing prints, even though acid wash is technically...well..a wash.

Chartreuse And Ikat.

by Jamila Pierre

I think it's safe to say that I have a few color obsessions, and that I don't really follow the seasonal color scheme rules. 

Chartreuse has definitely earned it's spot on the color obsession list and so have all of it's color relatives (Lime & Pea green, and however unpleasant the description, some shades of baby excrement). I am also a fan of bold and/or unexpected color pairings. I believe in going, not matching, unless I'm going monochrome from head to toe. 

I also appreciate making people have a strong feeling about what i'm wearing whether it be good or bad. 

Another obsessshhh I've added to the list is the IKAT print. 

"The defining characteristic of ikat is the dyeing of patterns, by means of bindings, into the threads before cloth construction, the weaving of the fabric, takes place. Herein lies the difference between ikat and tie-dye. In tie-dye the fabric is woven first and the resist bindings are then applied to the fabric which is dyed." - Wikipedia 

Funny how knowing the origin of certain things can make it that much more special.


This  is a print that has slowly made it's way into my wardrobe because of it's resemblance to tie-dye and while it may be a 3rd cousin of the tie-dye print by mimicking it's whimsical nature, it is very much so far more chic.

Unfortunately I only own two garments with this print but as all things, that will change.


What I'm Wearing:

  1. Necklace from Telco. $9
  2. Sweater from $19.99
  3. IKAT printed jeans from $9
  4. Kitten heels from $29.99 (on sale)
