I first fell in love with Royal Jelly Harlem when I saw them selling their Copa crop top bralettes at a local market in Harlem. After doing more research, I loved exploring the beautiful prints and designs of their African-inspired collection of clothing and home decor.
Needless to say, I was beyond excited to wear the Angeline dress in Kenya print (Cecilia was also in the running) to the 48th Annual African American Day Parade. This brand is the perfect representation of what it looks like to honor our roots and culture in the world we live in today.
The dress: The bold color and detail was attention grabbing and inspired a constant flow of compliments. It was perfectly form fitting on top and free flowing on the bottom, which made me feel comfortable and secure for the entire day. My favorite detail: the pockets!
I love so many of their designs that I look forward to the next occasion and ensemble to show off.
You can find Royal Jelly Harlem at a number of markets throughout Harlem, and you'll find their Pom Pom Aprons sold at the Harlem Whole Foods on 125th Street.
While we are on the topic of all things Harlem, it's only right that I share my favorite thing on the Harlem Shake menu right now: the Hot Honey Chicken Sandwich - a crispy chicken sandwich with jalapenos and honey. Maybe because it's like me - a little sweet, a little spicy. Fun fact: At the East Side location you can get tostones too. ::heart in eyes emoji::
