Sisters with a Modern Vintage Style

I’ve been listening to this group called Ibeyi, which is made up of  French-Cuban twins named Naomi and Lisa Kaindé. Their influences include traditional jazz, Yoruba chants and Afro-Cuban beats.

Here is one of their videos.

Today I’m looking at their personal style, which is as varied as their musical influences. I’m enamored with their ladylike fifties frocks combined with seventies polyester and layered with Nigerian jewelry, pearls and panache.

I am a vintage clothing shop owner living and working in rural north Florida. I believe in adding a little vinegar and molasses to my greens, having my coffee outside whenever possible, and mixing something vintage into every room and every outfit.
