A house is built with walls and beams, a home is made with love and dreams..a feeling, a vibe,-candles have always been a staple for me. I’m so happy to share this passion- it’s a dream come true! – Jody Watley
My first label Phonogram was not on board with my vision so we quickly parted ways..you’d think because I was in London it wouldn’t have been an issue but it was. Black artists are always often pressured to conform to more ‘relatable’ imagery. On my subsequent American debut and since..I’ve always navigated incorporating high fashion with edgy street style to varying results..but always what I wish to convey – hits and misses.. it’s all uniquely me.
“Mixing high end fashion with street style in this case wearing this Issey Miyake acrylic body breastplate which is a work of art really – with biker shorts and Doc Martens for a television performance for in 1988 is classic Jody.”
It’s been a challenging year – and if all you did was manage to stay healthy and in good spirits – celebrate it on this final weekend of 2020, in gratitude.. so many didn’t make it. Wishing everyone the best of this weekend before we set our personal intentions and goals for 2021.
Making my home space my sanctuary each day and encouraging you to do the same. Create an environment of love, joy and hope.
Move things around, adjust the energy, always have something fresh if you can-flowers are always a splurge, candles are a must – chill.
Begin each day in gratitude and with a cup of something that makes you happy. Home is where we create the atmosphere that kicks off and ends our day. Because this is something always important to me, this pandemic has inspired me to focus on these elements of simple comforts. I look forward to bringing you more of these simple things. If you work from home as a lot of us are doing – these things also work for your home office.
