The movement called Melanin on Market was originally created by, our owner, Cherné Altovise's first initiative in partnership with fellow businesses to celebrate other black and brown businesses. By allowing these businesses to setup in our locations, we were able to bring awareness to other small businesses and support the movement in a one stop shop pop up mall experience. Over the years Melanin on Market's initiative has evolved and in light of today's events we are making a virtual list to combat the unjust killing of our people with the most powerful weapon KNOWLEDGE on all black owned businesses nationwide. Click the links below to support and continue to revolution. This list will be updated continuously, but these are the businesses I've personally shopped with and recommend with physical locations and/or websites. Enjoy and tell us what you think in the comments.
Denim is one of my favorite go to's especially when we're talking about running errands or comfort. I love a good jean or jumpsuit, and this belted denim dress from Femme Luxe is that perfect compromise for the summer. The puffy sleeves and military pockets add a fun and dressy touch so I choose to dress it down with my silver bow platform slides and matching silver Cherné Altoivse accessories of course!

Everyone has denim so this look should be easy to recreate. I accessorized this look with some of my favorite pieces.
Fall is my absolute favorite season so I couldn't wait to break out the my boots and mix some prints. No matter how many layers you wear remember that it's just as important to match all your accessories for a cohesive look, and as you can see pearls is the common theme here featuring these new pearly tomboy jeans dropping soon.
