Hey Y’all,
So I live in Brooklyn (lighters up!), and make regular trips to an amazing restaurant in Fort Greene called Habana Outpost. Picture this: Outdoor seating, Frozen Mojitos, Sunshine, Old School Hits spun by a DJ, and the most beautiful, eclectic, fashionable mix of brown people in the nation. It’s the bomb.
I dropped in a couple weekends ago, and saw this beauty…


..and knew she had to be on the Fashion Bomb.
I was feeling her retro sunglasses, bouffant hair do, and the contrast of her large sweater with skin hugging top, tights, and belt. So cool. So Brooklyn.
PS Visit Habana Outpost at 757 Fulton Street at South Portland (C to Lafayette). It might be a trek for some, but you’ll love it, I guarantee.

  1. i don’t know about this one, claire…but i will check out habana outpost.

  2. I just discovered your blog while trying to avoid doing some work. =)

    As a lover of fashion and style I love the posts. You need correspondents across the country, and world, to discover more hip shopping spots.

    I am off to Puerto Rico and will stop by a few west indian islands. If I spot any trendy boutiques, I will take lots of pics for you. lol!

    Keep up the good work!

  3. Ooh i remember that place. Its around the corner from my aunt’s salon, Tendrils. I also did a show for them last summer to open it up. I wonder if they will do it again.

    Lovin It!

  4. Her outfit is too frumpy and leaves her with no shape. She would have been better suited wearing a potatoe sack, at least the color would have complimented her skin.

  5. I absolutely hate that place…this is one thing we dont agree on. You’re still fab though ♥

  6. talking about this cool restaurant, maybe take into account that they have sanitary issues they haven’t gotten right yet. the last three inspectictions within a 2 month period they recieved 164 violations for being unsanitary, now being a fellow brooklynite I just don’t think that I have the courage to take that kind of risk with food poisoning.

    just look at why they were shut down…. this is not a place to go and enjoy the sun.
