The only drama you should be creating, is drama with your fashions. Melodrama, a black owned boutique in Houston, will do the job.  Jackie, the owner, celebrated her 14th year of bringing beautiful fashions to the 3rd ward community in Houston. Jackie is a talented stylist who knows what women of substance and confidence are looking for. The fashions are fashion forward and afrocentric. She carries an array of numerous accessories as we. 20161214_17393120161214_17391920161214_17413220161214_17511320161214_17415620161214_181836M20161214_181901
Melodrama hosted a fashion show spotlighting a local designer’s kimono collection.  You will definitely create drama stepping into the room wearing these beautiful designs. Work it ladies in these versatile creations! You can add kimonos over dresses or tops as a jacket, or if you’re real daring, by itself as a dress.

I enjoyed the anniversary celebration.  I wore a velvet peplum jacket from Anthropology and handmade earrings and necklace from black owned merchants.

I apply the principles of Kwanzaa throughout the year and always live by them when given the opportunities.  The 4th principle of Kwanzaa is Ujamaa, cooperative economics.  Cooperative economics means to build and maintain our own stores and shops, and profit from them together to uplift our communities. We need to support each other.
