The Launch

Thursday, April 20, 2017

My Name is Florangel Rodriguez. Now, I know what you're thinking, where the heck does this name come from? Nope, it's not a blend of my mother's and father's name, and no, I'm not named after a strange tropical plant. This odd sounding, yet totally fabulous name says more about me than you may think. 

I come from a place I like to call, the MOST beautiful island in the world, the Dominican Republic. A  country with struggles, but filled with flavor! The food, the people, the music. It's all about Sabor! Soy Quisqueyana, y siempre llevare a mi tierra tanto en mi hombre como en mi corazon. 

NYC became my home town in 1994 when I was only a year old. I grew up on the Westside of Harlem, surrounded by diversity, culture and art. I am humbled and honored to credit this neighborhood as the village that raised me. Everyone there was different, everyone stood out. I spent a lot of time as a child observing street fashion, deciphering what I like and what I didn't, and creating my own sense of style. 

23 years later, I am a full woman, a proud Latina, fierce lover, sister, daughter, boss, dreamer, blogger, traveler, and fashionista. 

Here I share my passion for Fashion, Interior design, and this wonderful city, along with what the world has to offer. 

Join me on my life journey,           
Enjoy ComoLeFlor!
