No Basics Brunch: Print Edition 


I had the pleasure of attending the third installment of the No Basics Brunch, hosted by Damon, Ty Hunter and Claire Sulmers. I love print and I love bold colors! I was super excited to find that the theme the hosts chose for this particular event was just that! Everyone at the brunch looked amazing and this is just a quick recap of some of my favorite looks.


As I mentioned before the event hosts (above) choose a theme for each brunch event. The theme from this event was print; specifically African prints. Damon wore suit by Kehinde Wiley, Claire wore a beautiful set from Doku’s online market place and Ty wore pants from Midget Giraffe and a neckpiece from Zuvaa. They definitely exemplified why they are leaders in fashion. 

   I know it may be hard to identify but if you will remember my feature from the first brunch you will be able to see Melenigma’s gorgeous face. She was serving “You can’t sit with us”realness at the brunch with this oversized sun hat from H&M paired effortlessly with shiny gold androgynous shoes! One of my favorite looks of the day! I had to share.  

I mostly attend Saturday brunch to catch up with friends. I always like to keep up with what’s going on with people and see if I can help in anyway. The fashion and beauty world can be closed and hard for people. Brunch is a good way to tighten your network of friends and build stronger relationships.   

I love to meet new friends and catch up with old friends. You would be surprised how you can meet someone in another town or city and share similar interests and zip codes.  The No Basics is a place for fashion minds and unique style to be showcased. It may seem awkward to be different in the business world. But here being different is celebrated.

As you can see everyone is unique and everyone adds their mark into the world in different ways. I am glad to be able to call each one of them a friend.

I love to see women of color, who are entrepreneurs that can socialize and do positive things… together!  


Sometimes you get trapped in social media and being “plugged-in” can be a good thing. Nothing beats meeting in real life and building relationships. 


Style brought us together. 


But our personalities make us friends… Until the next brunch… See you guys later.
